Cub questions! Help!

Mon Apr 11, 2005 7:32 pm

I have a 1971 Cub -#236997 that someone painted all red. I think that tha tractor is supposed to be yellow and white? If so, where can I get original paint? Also, who has the best maintenance manual? I want to change oil now. What type and weight oil is best?

Thanx for any help and advice!

Visit the stickies at the top of this forum. Also check out Rudi's site. Your Cub should be yellow and white. Use whatever oil the previous owner used. If you don't know use 30 wt Non-detergent. is a good source for a manual. Your Case-IH dealer might have the paint, otherwise will have it.

Jolly, your tractor would likely have been yellow & white as that would have been the standard colors but it is also possible that the tractor was ordered red.
