I ended up walking away with an International Cub this past weekend at an auction.
I thought all the tractors went for a pretty good price. I got out bid on a Red Cub by $50
This was one of 3 International Cubs there I believe and 1 was a Lo-Boy.
I was definitely nervous and not to mention I usually have to have my wife pull the trigger on spending anything over $5 because I don't like to spend money.
At the auction it started right up.
I checked the tanks and everything looked good.
No welds on the ear.
The bad thing is that when I got it home it would not start. The battery is bad. So that is my first thing to get and then go through and replace the gas and grease it and check all the fluids.
Overall I think it is in pretty good condition. When I jumped it, it fired right up and steered good.
I am hoping to get it up and running sometime this week/weekend. Just gotta find a little time between work and playing with the kids.
I have a few questions though:
1. The battery that was bad was a 12 volt battery. Where is a good place to get a 12 volt battery that won't break the bank? I went to O'Reilly's and they had one for $130 and $115
2. Where would be a good place to get a sediment bulb or inline fuel filter? It has the shut off valve just not the filter.
3. The mower is a woods mower. What model is it?
Here are some pics of the International Cub. We have a cub cadet LT1050 and some how it got the name Cubby. Well my kids wanted to name this as well. My kids love tractors and tonka trucks and making noises when they drive them and the like planets. So when talking with them one said Brummer (a car noise he makes when driving his toys) and the other one said Venus (because it is yellow like Venus) so it is known as Brummer Venus.
I am hoping to get somethings done with it this weekend at the latest.
What are the things I should do besides grease it, new fuel, new mix in the radiator, new oil and oil filter?
Also as a side note. I got to meet Stanton at the auction as well. I have pm'd him many times and called him some as well with questions. I must say it was a pleasure to meet him. He is a great guy and great to talk to. I also learned a little more from him while I was there.
Which manual on this site would be best for this tractor? I printed out the 1967 manual and the 1974 manual.
Thanks for the look! I appreciate it!
