Just getting started

Postby Lightning rod » Fri Jun 19, 2015 6:47 pm

Started going through my cub today and saw some positives. The wire harness looks to be in good shape without splices. Carb is off for a little tlc. Once I install a battery and flush the gas tank I'll be easy to button up and see if she'll fire. I will need a new radiator at some point as the one on there has been reworked ( the soldering looks like bubblegum) but as it isn't leaking it'll wait. Can't wait to hear it run again

Sounds like you're making good progress. If it hasn't been mentioned before, you may need to prime the oil pump to get oil pressure.

Good luck! And you are going to get along VERY well here on the Forum with your attitude (from your info): "Tractors Owned: Only the one cub at the moment"
Sounds like a prime candidate for the MCC (Multiple Cub Club)!!! :lol:

Ha.... I've actually had my eye on a later model low boy for a couple weeks. Still trying to figure out how to sneak it to the house without my wife seeing it. She's been on my case about all the "junk" (her words) I've been accumulating.

Oh, and Bob, I'd already priming the oil as I'm going to change the oil and filter before it fires. Nobody could tell me when it was serviced last so I'm not chancing it

That's why a lot of "collectors" keep a few disassembled...makes it a lot harder to count 'em!!!

The problem is most of my stuff is in a few pieces already. I built a barn and moved most everything to it but I keep running out of barn and adding sheds. Then running out of sheds. I try to tell her that nothing is junk if it has a purpose even if it's not able to serve its purpose at this time

Barnyard is the master at hiding cubs, in BOB. Probably has 30 of them, in there, maybe 3 are found, easily!
