I have my Cub Cadet 7260 apart working on a clutch replacement. This is a dual clutch arrangement. If you look on page 141 of the service manual for this tractor you will see that they say to use a CAS2170 height gage to set the height of the bolts that the throw out bearing makes contact with when the clutch pedal is depressed. Now I don't have this CAS2170 height gage tool but the height listed in the specs on page 136 is 3.85"/3.90". The picture on page 141 is not clear enough to see the reference point that the legs of the height gage rest on. If I knew that reference point I could set up a way to make the measurement. Has anybody done this and do you know the reference point? Maybe a clearer picture if anyone could point me to one. Or any suggestions.

We finished the job. We found out when we split the tractor in half to get at the clutch arrangement that one of the three clutch release fingers had lost an adjustment bolt and nut. It fell down inside the clutch housing.

The throw out bearing was only contacting two fingers when you pushed the clutch pedal in. Needless to say that there was an abnormal amount of wear on all the parts in there. We replaced the throw out bearing and both clutch disks in the arrangement plus we had to adjust the height on the three fingers that contact the throw out bearing.

The height specification was the hardest part because it called for the use of a special height gage. We didn't have the gage. We only had the specs given in the manual. The problem was that there was no reference point given to measure the height. The picture in the manual that showed the height gage in use was so blurry you could not tell where the gage was resting for it's reference point.

I called Cub Cadet and they were worthless. First level tech didn't even know what I was asking for. Second level tech was no better. He knew what I was asking for but he had no answer to my question. Third level tech knew what I was looking for but had no answer for me. He could not get past the blurry picture either.

We ended up winging it and when we assembled the clutch arrangement the high and low limit spec fell right into place by using the face of the fly wheel as the reference point. I asked the third level tech if there wasn't a master manual on file somewhere that he could reference. He knew nothing about that. I even asked to speak to someone in there engineering department and that was another no no. He said he had never done that before. ....

Nice work.

Today it seems that if you are speaking to someone on the phone, that means they have no hands on knowledge of doing the process you are asking about. Can be very frustrating.

Glad it worked out for you. ....

Some people really know what tractors are who! LOL I believe that one might have been really made by mitshibitshi and you would have had or might have had better luck for info at a Mahindra dealer for specs and parts at this time.... So many built are still like this yet today!! ....
