Under slung exhaust for a 52 cub

Postby eiebe » Thu Oct 08, 2015 12:58 pm

My father recently gave me a 52 cub out of his personal collection now its not a show cub and need TLC but its a solid runner. but it has an underslung exhaust but all the parts sites list the underslung only for 1954 so im wondering what is the differance and what i need to look for if i ever need to replace parts or is this just cobbled together. Oh before i forget Hi im a bit new to this and have been enjoying reading the threads.

Welcome to the Forum. Without looking up the parts it appears that the exhaust was just assembled from the underslung exhaust option that was offered on the later model cubs. Yours has the correct hood for vertical exhaust so if you wanted to change it you could remove the nipple and adapter from the manifold and replace it with a piece of 1 inch pipe which should screw into the threads in the manifold and install the vertical muffler. Might be a bit difficult to remove the nipple due to age and rust but it can be done. Several threads on the HOW TO Forum deal with this. Here's one of them: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=21985 . The free downloadable PDF MANUALS listed at the top of the page will have Parts Manual TC 37F Rev 6 8-79 and will give you the detailed information on specific parts and what year they were changed, etc. Try this link: http://www.farmallcub.com/[ Sorry, direct links to manual section is not allowed. ]/downloa ... %20OCR.pdf.

Welcome to the forum, it looks like Stan has you covered. Nice looking Willys 2a sitting there.

Although from opposite ends, great to see another cub owner from the badger state. There are no questions unanswered here, a great bunch of people.

It's hard to tell much difference in the body. I was going more on the fact it has a 2a windshield. They were like Cubs in that many parts interchanged. I always wanted a 3b.

Nothing to worry about. If you ever wanted to convert back to vertical, though, you may want/need a new/different manifold. Exhaust manifolds don't like to let go of anything that's been threaded into them. If it's a pipe stack, it usually rusts away to nothing, then you clean out the threads and put in a new one. That cast elbow will take a lot longer to rust out...

This is not as uncommon as you might think. The 1951 Cub I bought back in the spring has an underslung exhaust.
