Cub year?

Postby Brodalick » Mon Apr 13, 2020 10:58 am

I purchased a cub a few years back and am now considering redoing it. It looks to be original except it was converted to 12 volt. No serial number plate and I would like to put one back on it. Needing to replace all stickers to what would be original for the time. Seller said he was pretty sure it was a 1948. Here are my numbers if it helps anyone: Final drives 3500806 R3, Rear end 351530 R1, Transmission 351680 R1, Engine 351674 R1 251341 R1, # by Sterring box ???889 R1 and Hydraulic pump 351981 R1. Is there any way to narrow the serial number down by using these numbers. What little I have been able to look up, it does appear to a '48 but I am not sure. Tractor has the tall gear shift.

What are the casting dates near those numbers? Example would be "4-9-R" or any combination of numbers/letters. It'll only get you in the ball park with a year.

Here's a table from TM Tractor that will help.

If you're sure it has the original engine, it will be easier to narrow down with the engine serial number.

Engine casting number is 6 19 R. All are R's with the exception to the drive housing which is 6 20 T.

Great. Any way to find serial number or do you just assign it one from the unused ones during that time frame?

How would you determine what an unused number is?
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
