1947 model cub

Postby Warren1 » Mon Jul 06, 2015 7:25 am

Hi everybody
I am Warren from South Africa
I have just started rebuilding a 1947 model Farmall cub.
Serial number is 2903
I need main bearings and connecting rod bearings 0.030".
Where is the cheapest place to get?
I see there are a lot of sites, but not all export to SA.
Thanks

I can't answer your question, but welcome to the forum.
Check with TM tractors (sponsor at bottom of page). We have active members overseas they will probably chime in.

I just looked at TM web site and it looks like he does Export but I did not see any engine bearings. They are a great place to order parts.

Welcome. Like Mike, I can't answer the question.

I get my engine parts from the local auto parts store. There is no shipping fees when the parts are obtained locally. It typically takes a day or two for the ordered parts to show up in store.

Suggesting that it may be less expensive obtaining the parts locally.

Case, IH., New Holland dealership can obtain the parts. You may need the IH parts numbers if it's a Case or New Holland dealership.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Welcome to the group. Like the others, I can not help you locate a vendor to South Africa. You have a Circle Cub. It is one of the first Cubs produced. I wonder how many may have been shipped to Africa as yours was.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

If you have not yet discovered the resources at the top of the page, look for the Parts Manuals, Service Manuals and Owners Manuals for most any information that you need. Good Luck and welcome to the forum. Stan
