I would suggest attending Cecil's MiniFest on April 20th in Kinderhook.
He is a carb guru and can probably get your existing carb working just fine.
Plus, you'll meet a bunch of people from the forum.

why not rebuild it ? check with boss hog, he'll get you fixed up in no time.

Unless the carb had a hole in it, or the float supports broken off, it is rebuildable. Steiner tractor has a reasonably good, complete rebuild kit. I second Peter's suggestion, to attend Cecil's minifest. Ed

G'day and congrats
on being the Keeper of your Dad's Cub and wanting to redo it with your son. Three generations and one Cub -- wow
So, suggest the very first thing you do is read the McCormick Farmall Cub Operator's Manual 5-1-49
I am assuming that the carb you have is the IH 3/4" Updraft. This one:
New reproductions are almost $300.00 .. pretty expensive however original ones are available. I am not sure what you mean by "shot", as most of them can be rebuilt. Cecil rebuilds them as well as a few others as well. I rebuild them up here in Canada for friends and neighbours and if I can do it anyone can. Takes a little time and the right
kit. The IH Kit or the Steiner Kit are the only ones that I use. The rest are worthless. I would suggest that you send a PM to Cecil and inquire. If you are close - and it seems you are only about 80 minutes from Cecil's, the Spring Mini-Fest is April 20th at his place - check the CubFest and Gatherings Calendar 2013
Second thing would be to spend a little time investigating the links below. There is a huge amount of information and resources available to our members just waiting to be utilized. So grab a cup of coffee, a comfy chair and enjoy the read.

I concur with others regarding the possibility of a rebuild. if you can attend Cecil's event, be assured if it can be repaired either he or Don can do it .
It will be done correctly and tested. JMHO

The inlet can be helicoiled. Ed

Let Cecil know here. http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=76260
Inlet thread repairs are not uncommon- they just need to make sure the helicoils are in stock. The tops are usually warped and some kits are worse than no kit at all.

Try to make time to go to Cecil's CubFest. I have seen those guys take some nasty looking carbs and turn them into a nice looking, working piece again. All you need are the parts. You'll be glad you went. A great group of guys will be there.

Simple answer: Lead Additives are not required. See the link in Bill's post.
Glad you got to go to Cecil's and that your Cub is now running. Have fun with the Cub. I am sure you and your son will get a lot of good quality son/pop time together.
