1949 Cub Rebuild

Postby tieman » Wed Nov 11, 2015 9:44 am

I need a little information on the 49 cub I am restoring. First of all I want to keep is as original as possible and I have a question that I am sure you guys will know the answer to. This tractor has a regular distributer with external coil and not a magneto application. When original would it or not have came out with the magneto instead of a distributer? The serial number is 97??? as I cant remember the rest of it off hand. Thank you

Yes, at that age it would have originally had a J4 magneto. Hydraulics were optional at that time.

Forgot to mention, if you change it back you will also need a different ignition switch.

It will look like the one you have now, but will only have 1 terminal. When you push it in to stop the engine it grounds the magneto lead through the case of the switch. That statement is assuming you have an original style push/pull switch.
