Non Electric Cub

Postby Brandon Webb » Wed Feb 03, 2016 9:30 am

Picked up this Plain Jane cub this weekend off Craigslist. It is a factory non electric starting and lighting, and non adjustable front axle. It had hydraulics and pto but I removed them. I never liked the no headlight look but it's growing on me. Should be a great tractor to use in the garden this year.

When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

I used to think I wanted one that originally came like that, but age and arthritis Have made me decide that electric start and hydraulics are better. :lol:

Evidently the electrical equipment got stripped off at some point in the past too.

I thought maybe that was the case too since the dash has the cut out, but it doesn't appear to have ever had any knock out plugs. I have a couple long wrap dashes for non-electric cubs with the plugs, but maybe they didn't use the plugs on the short wrap dashes since most cubs by then had electric start. It has original cork in the bolt holes where the battery box and generator would have went. The toolbox just rusted off it. It's a 1950 112,xxx serial number.

If you keep it in good shape and tuned properly they start right off. The original IH carbs seem to start easier, but the Zenith carbs are sturdier and give less trouble as they age, at least that is my opinion.
