Farmall cub restoration

Postby Freddie » Tue Aug 28, 2018 8:55 am

My dad is restoring a 1947 cub. The cub dealer stated the torque for the connecting rod bolts is 16 ft lbs. The man I have helping us thinks it needs to be more. Does anyone know the correct torque?

16 ft-lbs is correct.

FYI... This thread should be in a different place...not sure how to get it moved.

I see this is your first post, so, welcome!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

After your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the free PDF Manuals. They are located via "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals". Through that link, you'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. The Blue Ribbon Specifications manual will give you all the torque numbers you need. You'll also be able to familiarize yourself with the Cub more quickly. Implement Manuals are also available.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread: What to do with a Cub you just brought home

When you get a chance, take some pictures of your tractor and post them. We’d like to see it. BTW: What serial number is it (located on the serial plate, right side of front bolster, just behind the steering shaft)?

Glad you joined us.

Hi,
Below is the Cub service manual, the engine is in section 1.
I would recommend reading it, if you are rebuilding an engine. :)

Well my dad took I'll, so the restoration process has been slow. A year later, we finally got it all back together and no start. So was going to have my son pull it with the Ford jubilee. Tried to put it in gear. No luck. She is pulled back apart waiting on new parts, throw out bearing and pressure plate. Getting to be quite good at splitting the engine from trani though.

Freddie,

You’re not that far away, basically an hour +/-, so I’m willing to come a give you a hand if needed. Don’t worry I’ve traveled further to help.

The offer is sincere.
