According to the serial number on the tag (16812) I originally thought I owned a 1948 Cub, but after close examination here is the information off my Cub. To make matters even more interesting, the floor board and pedals were once painted yellow!

Serial #: 115096
Part #: 251341R2
Cast #: 5-15-T (Mar 15, 1950)

Torque Tube-
Cast #: 3-9-M (Mar 9, 1966)

Transmission-
Part#: 351530R1
Cast#: ?-2-O (? 2, 1968)

Axle Extd-
Cast#: 8-7-O (Aug 7, 1978)

Left Final-
Cast#: 1-9-R (Jan 9, 1948)

As I posted in your other thread, your axle extension and transmission are actually "Q" codes. Your torque tube being from a '66 tractor would explain the yellow pedals and floor board, as nearly all '66 models were painted yellow from the factory and its easier to change them all as an assembly than removing them from the torque tube.

Thanks for the information, I'll get your data added for the next entry! :D

Raymond,
I'm just getting the last of the numbers together but I had some trouble locating the casting # for the touch control. However, I did find a flat spot just behind the hydraulic tubes on the left side of the touch control that had "2 79" stamped on it. What would that be? The other 79's in the data base don't list the casting number like that.

sorry,Raymond,
that flat spot is just above where the lines come out of the touch control.

Are there any numbers cast into the right side of the block? Its not abnormal for the late model castings to be non-standard.

Getting back to you a little late, but I have an answer for what the above number is. Its actually the transmission PN, stamped into the housing after IH ground off the original PN. Only the last of the Cubs had this done. There should be a "R1" stamped in there somewhere.

I've looked back through the database, and Im gonna go out on a limb and say the "2 79" is the date code.

Raymond,

Came across this cub at Thomas Point Beach in Brunswick, ME while there for the Bluegrass Festival. Sorry I couldn't get more info, my daughter was too anxious to get to the playground!

S/N 226091J
Engine S/N FCUBM249174, date code of 6/7/L
TC date code of (blank)/8/L

Not 100% on the engine S/N or the casting codes as it looks like its seen some time out doors...
