Cub Loboy restoration guide

Wed Mar 10, 2004 9:58 pm

Hey there everyone,
I'm new to the forum and I figured maybe you guys could help me. For about 8 years I have owned a '57 Cub that has faithfully mowed my 3.3 acres with few problems. She's in more or less decent condition, but I've recently taken an interest in fully restoring her. Does anyone know of a good restoration guide that might be of use for such a project? Any help would be appreciated.

I am working on a 1955 Lo-Boy now. I am still doing mechancial repairs and restoration and collecting missing parts. I haven't got to the paint and decals stage yet. Guy Fay has a new Original Farmall Hundred Series 1954-1958 book out , but I haven't seen a copy yet. Guy's books are usually very good. Here's the description from Barnes and Nobel:

This follow-up to the Farmall Letter Series Originality Guide (0-7603-0438-6)features some of the Farmall hobby's most popular tractors, the Hundred Series. These tractors were the follow-ups to the Letter Series tractors with different paint and additional horsepower and features. The models covered in this book include: Cub, Cub Lo-Boy, 100, 130, 200, 300, 300 Utility, 330, 350, 350 Utility, 400, W-400, 450, W-450, 600, and 650.

Maybe someone on the board knows more about it? Also, an Owner's Manual, service manual, and a parts book from Binder Books are a must if you don't already have these. You can also find some information by searching the web. The guys on this site are really helpful!

Guy's new book does cover the Cub. I do have a batch of the first ones off the press complete with Guy's autograph, I can also have Andy sign the book to. (Andy took all of the photos) The bookstore price is $24.99, I will sell them to the Cub guys for $25 and that includes the shipping.
Any profit goes to the Archives.
