Put a little air in the front tires, install a pitman on the mower and go cut the last of the weeds down! Looks like a nice enough good honest Cub (with a small oil leak or two :) ). Welcome to the forum :{_}:

Jeepers, creepers, where'd you get those peepers? :wink:
Seriously, I love the headlights. I don't know if they were swiped off of a Duesenburg or what, but they look like they are ready to shine some serious light on nocturnal work.

Hello,

I'm new to this...all of this. The page, tractors, everything. My father has been into it a few years but I'm just getting interested. My father just bought an old 1950 international farmall F Cub. We are very new at this but we just started today working on it. It's been sitting for ten years in a barn and we changed the oil, emptied the old gas and removed the gas tan and top cover. We need to get the radiator filled and replace the spark plugs. My dad used this Marvel stuff that helps lubricate the motor and we're going to let it sit at least a week before we try turning it over and seeing if we can get the engine running. We're also planning to take everything apart and sandblast it and repaint it. It needs it! Probably going to be a long process as we are not exactly experts but it's fun so far.

We have an International Harvester 1000 Loader on it as well and are trying to figure out how to take that off safely so we can restore the tractor first and then restore the loader and reattach it. We have some theories. Anyone else doing this that I could connect with to exchange thoughts, ideas, knowledge...well, we could use the help!

Thanks,
Rich

Welcome to the forum. Suggest you start an new post so more people will see your questions. You've got a lot of work ahead of you but do-able and enjoyable. Check out the manuals at the top of this page and you'll find the answers to most of your questions. There's too much information to cover in one post but you can start with the "HOW TO" SECTION of the forum for many ideas. A word of caution and safety: If you split the tractor, be sure to stabilize the front axle to keep it from rolling and use sandblasting very cautiously, you will get sand in places that you never thought it could go and create additional problems with bearings, seals, etc. Post back with specific questions and problems. Also locate and attend a Cubfest if you can. It's the best place to learn about Cubs. Good Luck and enjoy your project. Great to build memories with your Dad. Stan

Someone will provide an answer shortly. Good Luck on your adventure. Welcome to the forum and remember we love lots of pictures. Tom.

PRIME THE OIL PUMP. Before you try to start the engine, PRIME THE OIL PUMP. There are numerous posts on this site on how to prime the oil pump.

Welcome.

Welcome to the forum, as suggested, start a new thread for best results. Additionally, may want to check the serial # to see if by chance it falls in the "Demo range", if so, a different approach should likely be taken (document any white found, etc.)
Best of luck,
David

That's going to be one happy Cub when you're done.
