Cub hood

Postby tomstractor » Mon Sep 04, 2017 11:34 am

Has anybody repaired a hood? My 48 Cub that I just got has had the hood cut in half at the seam where the spot welds are. It looks like the prev owner wanted to have easy access to the top of the engine. :help:

Yep, had a "patch" welded in where a PO created an access to the generator/alternator. Alignment will be your biggest problem and safety while welding around the fuel tank. Heliarc will probably be best but low heat will be required due to the thin metals.

Hi,
You could also buy a used hood, the same style, that is still in good condition.
You could put an ad in the Vine, on this site, it is the want ads pages.
Go to the top of the page and click on Board index to get to it.

JP Tractor Salvage at the bottom of the page might have one too. :)

I have one I bought as a spare in case mine ever started leaking. Been sitting in the garage unused for the past four or five years. I'd probably be willing to part with it for a fair price if anyone ever has a need.

If you have the missing part and the skill to weld it back together maintaining the mounting holes etc plus be able to do a little body work could be doable. I suggest getting a used restorable hood.

I'm not certain, Don. Looks identical to the hood on my 1950 Cub. I'll dig it out and post up some pics.

should be a short ear dash style if that is the case. There are long and short ear styles to be mindful of for that era

Got it. Does anyone know what a fair price is for one of these tanks? Taking in account condition and whatnot.

I paid about $125 for a '75 hood/tank in fair condition

Hi,

That would be right, what AL Farmall Boy said, the 1948 Cub had the long sided dash, and the 1950 Cub had the short sided dash. So if the dashes are original, the hoods are different, where they attach to the dash.
Raymond Durban's database says IH changed to the short sided, or short ear dash in 1949, at serial number 75926. :)

Yeah I didn't feel the need to mention it since it will fit both styles of hoods.
