Grill/ Hood

Sat Jul 06, 2013 7:02 pm

Me and my dad are fixing up a 1948 Farmall cub. So far there hasn't been a single thing on the tractor that hasn't been either welded or broke off and replaced with something totally wrong. Farming. Anyways, the the grill is thick chicken wire welded onto the hood and dog legs. Could someone send me a picture or explain what the stock grill looked like? thank you!

G'day to you and congrats to you and your Dad for fixing up that '48. If you follow the links below and go to the Owner's Manuals you will see a graphic of the Cub's grille.

If you click on the Site Rules, Regulations, & Important Information, it will point you to :arrow: the Welcome Wagon wherein you will find links to many useful sites and topics. One of the most important resources are Owner's Manuals, Parts Catalogs and Service Manuals. The Cub Manual Server is the home of the jpg versions and the PDF Manuals -- well the pdf's of course :wink: Enjoy!.

Hi,
Here's a pic of a 1948 Cub that I found. It said it's a 1948, the first style was like this. :)

FarmC - I'm doing a TOTAL overhaul of our 1948 also. This is CLEARLY the correct place to be for EVERYTHING you every wanted to know about your tractor. Today, I just finished filling all the pitting in the bottom of the seat. The hood has the first coat of filler for the minor pitting there.

Many parts are painted.

My advice follow what you read here. These folks have got it going on. Use http://www.tmtractor.com/index_007newparts.htm as a good reference and place to order parts. Also, use the "Wanted" Section of this forum as the sellers of parted out Cubs monitor it often. I've had great success.

Lastly, find a CubFest and go to one.

Regards, Ken
