TRIMMED DASH SIGHTING--Farmington Implement DVD

Postby Super A » Fri Dec 29, 2017 11:35 pm

First, if you need a post-Christmas gift, get a copy of Farmington Implement's latest DVD compilation of IH films.

https://www.farmingtonimplement.com/sto ... VD_11.html

One of them is a 1950 film on the Farmall Cub. As I was watching, look what I spied: A trimmed dash!

Lots of potential for speculation. Enjoy!

I don't think a trimmed dash would have been combined with a long ear hood originally (?).

Bob, the trimmed dash was on the 1948 Cub which was a long eared year. So yes, it would have been used with a long ear hood. That dash appears to have an additional notch on the left side.

Also note the position of the hand crank. Not laying flat as some think it should be.

Yeah, I misread that as a 1950 Cub....

How interesting, that's exactly how I mounted my hand crank. :)

Here is an illustration from one of the brochures. The handle is aside the battery box on this one.

What's the story on the trimmed dash; option, after-market? How rare?

Not to sidetrack this thread to crank locations, but I did see a pic from the Wisconsin Historical Society showing the hand crank in the upright, forward position. See attached circled in yellow:

To take this thread even further off course, the front wheel weights look a little different on that tractor. Maybe an optical illusion.

I think they were plowing in the sand. The front weights have a coating that has completely filled the bolt holes. You can also see sand caked on the rear wheel and weight but not completely covered like the front.

I agree with Jim on that one, if you will note the arm along the side, that is the steering arm for the 151 rear mount disk plow also. The arm connects to the top of the right front spindle, and to a pivot on the front of the plow frame about under the driver seat, and another arm runs to a bracket that connects to the tail wheel pivot to steer it.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Thanks, looks like I missed the trimmed dash by just a few hundred. It sure looks like it would be a whole lot easier to get at the electrics on the backside.

This DVD has the later version in COLOR, the earlier one being in B&W. I like seeing the implements that were available and the color they were painted. The Planet Junior planter gang is very interesting.
The producer of these DVD's has spent tens of thousands of dollars making these DVD's and has saved many lost IH films that we would have never gotten to see again.
Hats off to him !

I have all the farmall demo DVDs. Now I need all of these too. Thanks.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I wasn't aware of these dvds. There are currently 11 dvds at $39.95 each. That comes up to $439.45 and whatever shipping costs are. Hmm, with my birthday coming up, maybe I can drop a hint to the wife, but I don't think she's willing to buy all 11.

I'm slowly collecting them, the price is worth it. They have been carefully restored.

The DVD with "Inside Harvester" from 1953 has some good shots of Cubs being built. It and the DVD with "Farmall Fair" has some good shots of the Cub as well.
