Information needed

Postby mj912468 » Tue Oct 20, 2015 6:35 pm

I have found a IH farm All Cub. The only numbers I could find quickly are 351688-R2L2X these numbers are on the lower right side of the engine. It has a belly mower with a belt drive PTO. I have a couple pictures but do not know how to get them on here. The year is unknown. I am considering purchasing this. They tell me the motor is locked up. Other wise appears to be complete tractor. Thanks for any help would be appreciated

Welcome to the website. The number is probably 351686R2, it is the part number of the clutch housing, means nothing for identifying the year of the Cub. The L 2 X, you can only tell approximately from that. I think it was used from the mid 1950's until 1964 or so, but not sure.
Look at the serial number plate on the steering housing, or if it is gone, the engine serial number is stamped in the engine. You might need to clean off oil and dirt to see it. Here is a page from a Cub owner's manual showing where they are. Click on the pic makes it bigger. :) ... age-02.jpg

Before you purchase the tractor, post a lot of photos.

What is the owner asking for the tractor?

Tractor not running - - parts tractor. Not worth very much money.

Top of page is a lot of information on Cubs. There is a section on what to look for before purchasing a Cub.
I have an excuse. CRS.

For info on posting pictures, go to the BOARD INDEX and select the HOW TO forum then at the bottom of the list, there is a subforum USING THE FORUM will help you post pictures. As far as ID the tractor, if you find the SN ID plate there will be a 5 or 6 digit number, use that number in the link above "WHAT YEAR IS MY CUB" to ID the year. If you don't find the SN ID plate, look on the left side of the engine behind or near the carb for the casting codes. The engine SN is about 6 or more numbers and stamped. The casting code in the form of two numbers followed by a letter will be cast in the block. TM Website has a list of the years the different letter codes were built. As far as the engine seized, it's a crap shoot. Some have been freed up with minimum effort. My experience is not so good, it takes a lot of work and patience but it can be done. Once the engine is free and able to be started, there might still be some expensive repairs/rebuild that needs to be done. As Eugene said, "parts tractor, not worth much money". I approach a situation like this with the idea that if you can purchase it at scrap price then decide it is too expensive or too much work to repair/restore you can either part it out or sell it for scrap.
