cub decals????

Postby Dave Beck » Mon Apr 11, 2005 11:40 am

I know I read a post I think from Jim Becker that gave the correct decal setup for different years. I am unable to find it. The cubs I am picking up tomorrow are both 1950 models. One has a mag while the other has a distributor. Were they originally both equiped with mags?

Can't wait to go get them tommorrow. I will try (key word try) to post some pics once they are at their new home.

Get ready guys I know I will have loads of questions!!!

I think what you're referring to is on TM's website, is this it?

They would have both had mags.

I believe the change from mag to distributor being standard came during the 1950 production year. So both may be original. Perhaps J. Becker can tell us the approximate serial number break.

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

That's my understanding as well. My demonstrator has a distributor, but it must not be original from that early in the year.

Hood decal from September 12, 1949 to May 12, 1954(1) read "McCORMICK - FARMALL CUB". There was no decal on the radiator grille side.

My late '49 FCUB, Rusty, is equipped with a distributor.

Battery ignition was available starting with serial number 115403, which was fairly late in the year.

Were battery/distributor setups optional before this? My 48 also is a distributor. Seems there's quite a few around. Are they all conversions?

Any prior to the serial above would be conversions. There were a lot of conversions.
