Hello! finally i bought a set of two rear tyres 8.3-24, i had lucky to find them, because is a very rare size in Argentina.. When i clean up the tubes that i already had on the old tyres, i found the label of: good year made in usa - 8 x 24. i think that those tubes are the original ones that came with the tractor from USA, what you think?

Probably true. That size marking hasn't been used since about 1960.
Hi everyone! There is a video about the tractor right now.. I have been most of the time in the university, so not much time to work on the tractor, only wiring is needed to get it done! I would like to know if some one has a spare battery box to sell or to donate? i do not have one, and it wont be cheap and easy to build one in Argentina.
In the video the oil gauge is not showing pressure in the first seconds, it has like a delay to start showing good pressure.. but it runs really good!! I cant wait to run the tractor over the field!
Hello people from the forum! It has been a while since my last post. New activities and university kept me quite busy doind other things, and the Cub was in a state that for me was hard to continue restoring it.
One day i just decide to spend 2 full days on it, also decided to do the electrical wiring my self, i had no idea how to do one, but after all was not so hard to do. The results where excellent, because the tractor is almost ready, and i finished the most hard thing in those days, now the only things to do are very pleasant and nice to do!
Did some nice rides in my farm, ride very nice! and the engine runs like new.. very happy to know that i have a tractor ready to work, as soon i import a grass mower.
Things lefft to do are: - decals - light switch (i lost the original one that was like new ) - buy a new battery box - change the hydraulic pump oring because is leaking hyd fuid to engine, i dont know why because i did the rebuild.. - check all fluids and change oil again. -polish all the tractor and the emblems. -resize exhaust tube - ride 6km to the gas station to fill the gas tank
Here are some pictures of the tractor. Thank you very much for all the help i got from the forum, there was no way of doing it without the information i got from all of you, even some parts where sent to me for free.
One more cub is ready for another story.
Testing the Cub to find issues before the final assembly
