Hello members

I would like to introduce myself on this forum.

I am an Icelander, for the most part, middle aged fan of machines that burn fossil fuels. I work as a production engineer and technician for a small company is machine construction for the fishing industry.

Last year, when I moved back to Iceland after living abroad for 6 years, I rented a storage room for my things before I bought a house for my family. The storage room I rented is actually a workshop for tractor fans and in there one can find old tractor of different origins, from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

Most of the tractor owners are middle aged, whatever that means :shock: but some are older. One of the old guys is restoring a 1958 Farmall Cub and I actually asked him if I could help him out a bit and he told me, he would appreciate some help with the engine overhaul, and that´s how it started.
At the moment I am doing valve seat cutting and valve lapping, and that how I found this site: by googeling Farmall Cub valve job.

I do not own a tractor myself, but maybe one day I will. Meanwhile I will try to help out some of the guys at the workshop, if they need help that is.

It is my hope I can extract some knowledge from this forum and its members, as well doing my best in contributing to others in return.

IceGuide, Welcome to the Forum. I am guessing there probably aren't too many Cubs in Iceland. They are a fun little tractor to have and work on. Let us know if you need help with anything.

Can you provide a history of the tractor? Is this a French or USA manufactured Cub?

Hello guys and thanks for welcoming me to the site.

This particular Cub is a US import, as most of the Cubs are that were imported to Iceland. I will try to extract more info on the Cub and post here.

The Farmall Cub was actually very popular in Iceland and the one I am working on is one of three in that same workshop :D My uncle used to have one back in the early 80´s which was a 1949 model, the one with the "fish net" grill. That tractor was also the first motor vehicle I drove.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
