Need Help identifying my Cub?

Postby 71Nova » Sun Jan 25, 2004 6:26 pm

I looked through the information up in the first post and found the serial numbers and corresponding years mine 215144 J shows it as being a 1960 cub. On the side of the transmission below the clutch pedal it shows 351688 R3 L3 what does that mean? then directly on the other side of the transmission it shows 360719 R1, any meaning to that? then on the side of the engine block i see 251341R7 L any meaning to that? I am content with it being a 1960 i just was wondering if anything has been changed or anything through its history?

Nova,

Those numbers are part numbers for the torque tube, transmission and engine castings, respectively. To verify the date of manufacture of all of the castings on your tractor, go to the following site.

ok question #2 our drivers side brake doesn't work at all. Is there an adjustment in there or something that wears out? Just some pointers would be helpful as to what to look for..

Thanks,
Mark

Nova,

That's very common. The most likely cause is a leaking seal on the side of the differential case that causes the lining to become oil soaked. An archive search for axle seal should get many hits... we talk about it a lot.

The brake drum and brake band are inside the final drive housings. Check to make sure the rod from the brake pedal is still connected to the band. The brake band may be completely worn out, the set screw may be loose or missing or the rod may not be connected. Not a particularly difficult job if removing the final drives sounds like fun.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

it feels as if it is disconnected so that could be it you can press it all the way down and it doesn't feel like anything is happening at all.

While i'm at it asking questions, what decals or emblems or how can i find which ones should be on a 1960 Cub? Ours says International it is an aluminum one piece emblem about 24 inches long or so. I don't think it is factory. Not sure

Check this link to Rudi's site. It is a page out of the parts manual showing the brake components. You may just have a pin that is missing.

Nova,

I think your emblems should be the same as on my '63, so they are probably right. AFAIK, the change from the stainless ones was in 1959. When I fix mine up prettier, I plan to buy a set that is most commonly available from many sources, and simply not use the ones for the hood. All the other ones will be close enough.

Currently, there are none on it.

Nova,

Oops, I must have been sleeping! If your emblems are correct, your tractor must be a Lo-Boy? They would have had the International emblem. All the smaller decals were probably the same.

Nova,

I went back to my post and see that it was still confusing, so I edited it.

The '60 Lo-Boy would have "International" on the hood side and say "Lo-Boy" on a vertical metal emblem on the hood support.

The '60 to '63 F-Cub would say McCormick Farmall on the hood side and say "Cub" on a metal oval on the hood support.

Well then i suppose i have a lowboy international hood emblem and an oval cub on the hood support. I don't think it is a low-boy, but i don't exactly know how to tell?

Nova,

If your sheet metal oil pans for the final drives are on the bottom, you have a regular F-Cub with a lo-boy hood.

If they are on the front, you have a lo-boy with F-Cub hood supports.

A '60 Lo-Boy would have an oval shaped emblem on the grille extension, similar to the one on the Farmall Cub. It had both words "Cub" and "Lo-Boy" on it.
