As I continue to make some progress (slow this week as I was waiting parts and it is to hot in garage to really enjoy myself) I realized that all of the bolts (excluding drawbar) on my 1951 Cub are orginal IH or "dot heads". So what this means is I want to go the extra distance and use all correct bolts. Is there any place that deals with single bolts? I noted on ebay there are boxes of bolts (collected from parting out tractors) but that does not seem the way to go.
I looks like one of the bolt that holds on the PTO shaft assembly is not original and one of the three bolts that holds the rear metal bracket for the three point hitch is not original (I am sorry I do not have the correct name of the metal piece so I attached a picture).
Thank you for your help in advance.
Hmmmmm, 3 point hitch with original bolts...Seems like one don't go with the other....But,I'm a working tractor fellow....Check with the guys who sell parts in the classifieds...They may have some extra's...Also the sponsor's TM , JP salvage etc....You always got as you said Ebay....

There isn't anything magical about the dot head bolts. If you know what you need put a notice in the wanted section. I'd guess there are guys on this forum with cans of bolts that can help. Another thought is if someone is scrapping a tractor in your area you may be able to buy some of the bolts off of the tractor. It wouldn't even have to be a cub, the bolts of a correct size would be universal.
Don Eicher in Vidor may have what you need. I've not dealt with him in a while, but had good experiences the few times I have. His website is
And if you're on the east side of Houston then he's reasonably close. He's told me he parts a lot out and to always call if I was looking for something not on the website.
