Just recently accuired a 1955 Farmall Cub LoBoy. I have several questions for you wise ones. This tractor has been sitting for a few years, but it all intact and runs purrrrrfect. The only thing wrong right now is the clutch is out. I have it up on stands and have everything out and cleaned up.
I am in need to find a supplier that I can get a new Clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing and piolet bearing. The local International dealer is WAY OUT of line for these items. They are wanting 500 bucks for it all. Maybe it't just me thinking it's to high.
There should be a good source for parts here on the internet for these older tractors that isn't going to try to get rich off of a person.
ALSO, I need to find a wiring schematic that I can put the wiring back the way when it was original. Plus I would like to see what that little 4 position light switch is for on the dash panel. (at least that's what I "THINK" it is)
This is my first IH tractor, I have and restored a 1948 8N Ford a few years ago, there are tons of information on them and I have not been that lucky so far on the LoBoy.
The one thing that I was really surprised with, was there is no water pump. Do they circulate enough to keep the engine cool on a hot day? I remember the old Model T Fords didn't have a water pump either, but there was aftermarket suppliers that you could by and put on your "T" engine, is there anything like that for a Cub LoBoy?
I will be asking "stupid" questions like these from time to time, but I would rather ask a dumb question then ruin a good enine.
Thanks for any help,
