I would say the Tractor Pride Photo Forum

for a work thread?, Not really a restoration thread, just want to show some progress since I got it, and get some advice on directions to go and on some things it has on it.

Well actually, since you said you were testing your ability to load a pic, This thread should actually go in the Testing Forum. Asking questions for advice would go in this forum and before and after pix would go in the Tractor Pride Photo Forum. You asked if this was the right forum so I only tried to answer as honestly as I could.

ok well I will make my thread here then :)

this is a before pic, or at least I am posting this pic first, last time the 2nd pic is above the first one, not sure whats up with that, but here goes
download/file.php?mode=view&id=31566
ok its posting the 2nd pic on top again, anyways it looked like the one pic and now looks like the black painted version, did as best as I could with what I have to straighten and attach things as they should be, took some dents out of the hood too. One dogleg was welded when a screw was broken off, I removed the weld and retapped the hole. looks better, wont be great until I replace the bolster as it pushing the radiator back when it swelled from ice causing the damage.

any advice on how to make a thread be a little more in order, please educate me, I have seen posts with more text beneath the pics but I am missing something I guess

this was in a different forum, I am placing it here, the other can be deleted please. I hope I am doing this right now :P

OK no razzin about the bugeyes, they were something I had and the old broken black plastic one hanging by a wire didn't do it for me :P other than that this is how she came to me. You may notice a rather ominous weld along the lip of the bolster, that weld is actually holding, in fact all the welds seem to be doing OK , its the cracks that didn't get welded that are seeping, more on that later.

Hi,
The seat is not for a Cub, as far as I know.
Below is a page from the Cub parts manual showing the seats for Cubs and LoBoys. :)

The Cub Cadets didn't come with that type of seat either. A 104 would have came with a white seat, like the ones in this flyer.

I thought it was strange that the frame didnt carry across the back.



interesting pic with a treat, :P, dont mind the junk we piled up after moving an old trailer, but look through the steering wheel on the cub, there is another 1950 tractor, my TO20 hupster :P Didn't realize that when I snapped the pic. Yes, I have OTD, (old tractor disease)

Right - I didn't think it did. I was thinking it may have been something offered aftermarket or maybe it was from an issue of Popular Mechanics or the like for a project since they do appear to be home made.

Thanks for posting your pics. Looks like you got the hang of it. In the "Attachments" tab while posting a new post, when you've selected a file to attach, it will come up at the bottom of the posting screen with the name of the file and two (2) boxes in the middle of that line called "Place inline" and "Delete file". If you select "Place inline", then it will put that file wherever your cursor is presently set in the posting box. Otherwise, it will place the attachment at the end of the post. Multiple attachments within the same post will stack on top of one another; the last shall be first (that's true in other things in life as well, but won't go into that here :)).

As far as the seat goes, if it fits your tractor, if it provides some spring/bounce to absorb a rough ride and fits your rear end, then it's a keeper. But to answer your question, no, it's not a seat IH produced for a Cub.

Keep the pics coming. :tractor:
