I posted this on another forum, but the experts are HERE
Looking at a Farmall Cub. Not sure of the year, but its an earlier one w/ the mesh screen grill and set screw front spindles.
Here's what I was told and/or saw:
New valves, guides, rings, pistons and bearings. Engine worked over by a NAPA shop.
New right rear tire. Left rear original, but good.
Rims are good
Has rear weights.
One new front tire, other weather cked, but sound
CORRECT, new carb
12 volt conv w/ new one wire alt.
Tin is straight but has some pitting
headlights appear in good shape, but no rear light.
Not a fast hitch tractor, but has rockshaft lift arm from touch control.
New clutch, pressure plate and tob.
No apparent cracks welds or brazings. Finals look good but have obvious oil leaks.
Missing air intake tube from breather to carb.
Battery box is junk.
Dist. ignition and looks like it needs rewired to be nice.
Grill bent but salvageable.
I haven't heard it run, so I can't speak for the tranny, but was told it was sound. (hope that didn't mean it was "full of sound.")
Owner wants $1000.00 delivered to my door.
Looks like a good deal to me, but want other opinions.
I've never met a tractor I didn't like....but I have found some that were greatly annoying....
