I wanted to introduce myself to the forum. My name is Frank, and I just bought a '40's Cub that I would like to fix up and use around my little horse farm here in Tallahassee, Florida. My maternal grandad had a Cub which he purchased new in '48, so I always wanted one near in age to that one.
The one I have appears to have sat outside and maybe near the ocean for quite a while. It has rust on every piece, and though it rolls, the engine is seized. I'm even having problems getting the headbolts loose without twisting off.
Anyway, the serial number is #24425, and I was wondering what year that might make it. I think it is a '48. Also, what's the best place to find the correct parts books, ops manuals, and service manuals. I've refurbed several tractors in the past, so I know I need to find a good dealer, and get those books before I go too far.
Anyway, just wanted to say hello, and tell you that I'll be needing a lot of help and advice as this is the first IH product I've had for quite a while. In fact, the last one I worked on was a 1206 back in '71, so this one is bit different in size!
Thanks in advance,
