My wife's uncle - Clorice for some reason had the guys at the university he worked at redrill his finals out to 3/4", when I get his Cub at some point, I will simply have Earl send me a set or two :idea: :)


Problem with this is, most implements won'r accept the larger bolts without drilling out the holes in the implements .

Dale:

I guess is all depends what the Cub is used for I guess. Clorice uses his for his Cub-193 plow and the pull type disc harrows. Doesn't use it for much else.

If it were mine and I wanted to return them back to 5/8"-11, then at this point I probably would seriously consider looking at replacement finals as BD suggested. If that isn't an option, then a really good welder who understands welding cast iron properly. Might be a tad bit expensive though.
