'53 Rides Again!

Postby xraycajun » Tue Oct 24, 2017 10:02 am

Thanks to the help of so many on this forum, another hibernating cub has awoken! My great grandfather's '53 (53' Cub Rescue) is running for the first time in fifteen years. After what seemed like a hundred puts and almost-starts, she finally caught... and spewed out a thick blue smoke. After a few minutes, that smoke burned off and she settled into a nice smooth idle. I took a ride around the yard and was pleased to see that 1st, 2nd, and reverse worked well along with the clutch and brakes. Thanks again for all of your collective advice!
