If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I'm not seeing the photos
If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

Thanks Bigdog For posting the pix. I included the pix of the Allis G because I knew George Willer would get some pleasure in seeing that . I watched him make a few passes it did suprisingly well for it's size. Had some wet spots and had so much power I had to ride the left brake to get Traction. People continue to be impressed with the ability of the cub. But I had to make 3 pass for every 1 pass of the WD45s. Steve

Bigdog,

Thanks for sharing the pics. This is the second time I have seen the use of duals on the left side of a cub while plowing. The other was on a cub with a mid-mounted disk plow installed.

Why would the operator use two rear wheels and the left side of the cub and only one wheel on the right side? I love looking at stuff such as this!

John - The dual wheels on the landside of the tractor serve several purposes. They will reduce soil compaction, increase traction and flotation. Probably not really necessary where a cub is concerned but definitely on the larger tractors.

Thanks Steve and BD. Looks like you had a great time. I see you changed the grill on your tractor too.

Would the side not in the furrow be known as the off side?

I am having a small traction issue with my Farmall A. I was wondering if I just added a seconded wheel weight to the landside would this help or should I just add a dually?

Either one will improve things, though you probably should add weight to both wheels at the same time to keep the tractor from becoming unbalanced.

Great pictures! I especially like the fact that no two rears are the same on that cub :D

If your soil drains well, I'd add the weight first. If you're dealing with damp, marshy ground then the dual wheel will probably be more advantageous.
