1957 Cub and Implements

Postby Steve.43 » Fri Apr 25, 2008 2:17 pm

Hey, Guys:

I finally got the Cub and implements home from Michigan that I bought on eBay last February. We couldn't get to them then because of deep snow, but got along OK this time. I spent about half of today getting it running, changing oil and filter, tightening loose things, etc. It sounds pretty good, no smoke and no expensive noises. It came with fast hitch, a breaking plow, snow/grader blade, cultivators, 4 new tires, and a McKee 2-stage snowblower. That snowblower looks way too big for a Cub. I'd say it weighs about 400-500 pounds, and I doubt that a Cub has enough HP to run it through the usual Indiana wet snow. I may try to adapt it to my Farmall 300 this fall. It looks about the right size for that.

The Cub has sat outside a fair amount and needs cosmetics, for sure. I'd post pictures, but haven't learned how yet. It's on my list of things to do this year. Just wanted to say I'm really pleased so far with my "new" Cub (No. 5 for me).

My Dad bought a Cub new in 1957. He bought some implements for it,including the snow blade in front. I need the bolt-the hardened steel bolt that runs though the blade lift parts and runs through the tractor housing to "tie" everything together.Without that bolt you cant raise or lower the blade. Do you have the specs on that bolt,and any links where I can get one? Thanks alot!

Is the blower self-powered? If so, then power shouldn't be a problem, just whether you can go slow enough for the blower to clear itself. If it is not self-powered, then it could be a problem. IH did not make a blower available for the cultivision cub; only for the number series lo-boys.
