Nice to know that the itch is catchy :!: :D :wink:

Looks like a nice tractor to start with. Is he going to use the cultivators manually or will you find a nice touch control to go on the Cub?

Tell your Dad, welcome to the family :!:

Larry,

Does your Dad follow this group? If not... bring him aboard. We'd like to hear about the tiger in that Cub's tank. I know about it from the long throttle lever necessary to keep it under control.

Jack, the seller says its a '48...I'll know for sure once I double-check the serial #. The white on the tire is chalk marking a crack. It "sat-up" for a while, the tires went flat, and well...you know what happens to'em.

Rudi, we will keep the hand lift. I asked Dad today what he wanted to do with it as far as fixing it up. He said, "I want to go all the way" :!:

George, I didn't notice the long lever...is there a story here :? :?:

:twisted: Heh Heh!!, John. I bet they really appreciate you going to the trouble of taking it apart for them. That old new-bought Cub wont take no time at all to get in fine shape with them having access to your "Handy" parts bin. :twisted:

There must be a story, but we'll depend on you to find it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

John, you have no worries. Your cub will be at my house while dad's will be 7 miles to the north, at his house. I do wonder, what would happen if I accidently put some of "Miss B's" parts on your cub :?:

Hey CB,

Glad to see that Mr. Bud is now a bonafied "CUBBER". I am sure you both will have many a happy hour working on it together. I am sure
that this means two (2) trailers to Cubarama this year!!!! :lol: :lol:

You might end up with a "B" CUB instead of an "F" CUB if you use parts
off Ms "B".

The 4 speed transmission would be an improvement, possibly the bigger engine? :roll:

Hey Russ,

Looks like I am going to be looking for a gooseneck trailer and Chevy HD :shock: :!:

The trailer we have will haul two cubs....looks like my '55 Lo-Boy (Happy) and my 102 cub cadet will be staying home this year. :cry:

Hey C-B
If it was not a throw-away line and you are really looking for a Chevy HD, and looking new, holler, & I'll come up with a "GM in My Driveway" cert if you can convince a dealer you are a current owner of a non-GM vehicle.
GM is VERY big on 'conquest sales', so we have these certs to give to anyone who can use them.
Good for $1,000.00.
Current GM owners can claim brand loyalty and get discounts that way.
It would really be neat if you Good Samaritins could benefit from GMs promotion!
We builkd about 1,000 a day here at Ft. Wayne Assy. Don't currently build many HDs, but have built thousands.
Enjoy, and Thanks for thinking GM!
:)

Larry in IN,

Thanks for the offer but, I bought my last new truck in 1996. I have owned four GM trucks since 1992. I currently have my eye on a used 2001 HD2500 4X4 crew cab. I could haul four cubs AND four cubbers :!: :wink:

Dad and I are going to get his cub this morning. I'll post a pic of the event later tonight.

Thanks for building a great product, here in America, (Canada too!)
It's all I've ever owned. 2001 Z71 Ex-cab currently. It'll pull a few cubs as well if you can get them on the trailer.
It also helps when one's father-in-law works for GM. (Generous Motors)
