Yes, a pilot is a common term in the US for an alignment/support feature where two components mate. A good example of this would be the interface between an automotive hub and the rim. The wheel studs & lug nuts keep the rim in place, but the center pilot on the hub preserves coaxial alignment and transmits all radial force.

If you plan on centering the seat and steering you may want to check out how a C/Super C steering is configured. That too will be an engineering challenge.

The squeaky wheel may get the grease but it's usually the first to be replaced!

If you look closely, the steering on a Super C is offset to the left.

You could leave the Cub steering as-is and it would be like an old Moline, or you could get it pretty close with a simple universal joint.

Again, thanks for the pointers on the steering, I realise this will be the biggest thing to get looking as thought everything is factory original.

It looks as though I'll HAVE to do it!

Planning leads to a successful project so to that end does anyone have, to hand, a bearing retainer from the diff, 350 792 R11, it's a 3 pointed design and I need to know the effective maximum diameter, please? This will assist in the internal diameter of the spacers, I could wait till its stripped but that might be a while away.

Hi,
Here are pics of IH Cub 154 LoBoys, that John mentioned on page 1 of this post. They use a Cub engine. They were made from 1968 - 1974, the serial number list on this website says.
They don't all have the hitch like the one in the 3rd pic has. They are made without the offset, like you are talking about, David. There is a forum on this website for them also.
The 185 and 184 are newer than the 154. :)

Again thanks for the help.

I'm hoping I can get to the US in 2016, (one or two health probs), if so I'll have quite a shopping list.

For work I travelled regularly along the gulf coast Texas - Florida, South Carolina, upstate New York plus Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa visiting diesel engine and steam/gas turbine manufacturers.

David,

If your schedule permits, you might want to attend a CubFest. Take a look at the schedule here: http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=90688 Great time. Great food. Lots of friendly, knowledgeable Cub folks eager to share their experience. Think about it as you plan your trip.

Bill, sadly it looks as though it's going to be next year, if it is 2016 it will be the Autumn / fall. A Cubfest would be interesting, I feel as though I know many of you already.

Do not overlook the fact that one that narrow and still as tall as an original is very top heavy. I saw one at a state IH show that dropped a rear wheel in a depression about 2 inches deep and the only thing that kept it from going over was the outriggers he had attached to the drawbar. The outrigger assembly height could be adjusted via the rear rock shaft.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Am I correct in thinking that if I pull the brake rod out the clutch adjusting plate / bush 7A stays in place?

It looks as though the hole in the right side of the transmission tunnel is larger than the left.

I made up a puller and got the left brake lever off.

The brake rod did pull out, pleased about that.

Safety considerations first, have made up some 'chock blocks' to hold fron wheels stationary, I have some extra wedges for the bolster area.

Just recording everything.
