Most 1950 Cubs have had their engines over hauled one or more times. Did the previous owner say how long before the sale, the engine had been overhauled?marshall wrote:I bought a 50 cub this weekend. It had been overhauled completely before the sale.
Once you have figured out the problem with the engine. Suggest a complete fluid change - promptly.The oil was supposedly changed just before the sale but after just this bit of mowing it is black.
