Welcome to the forum!

Once you've logged a 2nd post, you'll have access to all the manuals on the server. It's located under the "Quick Links" pull-down menu in the upper left of the screen. Go to "PDF Manuals", then scroll down and select whatever manual interests you. As a new owner of a Cub, we'd suggest downloading the Owner's Manual first and taking some time to read it. Many questions you may have will be answered there. Then, as far as working on your Cub, there are Service Manuals and other information that will be helpful.

We'd also encourage you to read the "Welcome Wagon" and "How to Upload Pictures...". There are numerous threads in the "Forum Rules..." section that will benefit you. And don't forget the "How To Forum" for detailed step-by-step repair info.

As you have already discovered, using the "Search" feature will locate answers to many, many questions that have been asked before.

Glad to have you here. Get that 2nd post under your belt and try to attach a picture of your Cub. We'd like to see it.

Hi,
Below is the 1955 Cub owner's manual. The experts on here say if you have a Cub, you should read it, or an owner's manual closer to the year of your Cub, for other people reading this.
It has lots of info about operation, maintenance, and lubrication. There is a table of contents on page 1.

http://farmallcub.com/rudi_cub/www.clea ... index.html

You should check or change all the oils, and be sure they are not low.
In the rear, there is the transmission case, and 2 final drive cases, each with it's own separate oil to check and change.

There are other years of owner's manuals at the top of the page at Cub Info, and then at Rudi's Manuals. :)

good afternoon all from the deep south . 61* , 85% humidity . comfortable for winter , even this far south . i can attest to the selfless nature of 99% of the folks on this forum . good , salt of the earth folks that have found a connection with a great little tractor . i'm not sure why i came to appreciate cubs , not a farming moment in my past . i saw this cool little red tractor on the side of the road while delivering an order of gas/electric lamps in the hill country of texas , and later , found one on craigslist locally . coppersmythe..........................................

It is a great site. I needed a small tractor to handle logs to build my cabin. I had no idea what a Farmall Cub was but stumbled across one a guy had for sale. Went to look at it and thought it was the cutest thing I'd ever seen. I test drove it but had already decided I was going to buy it before I ever cranked the engine. Bought it, trailered it home and it wouldn't start. I needed help and found this site.

The folks here have walked me through how to time it, rebuild the governor, replace the alternator, adjust the valves, magneto issues and on and on.

They know what they're talking about. Thank you all.

Gentlemen.

Thanks for the welcome, I appreciate it. I purchased the manuals before I started on this project. I have rebuilt my 1020 JD so I wasn't completely in the dark, however you can never have enough knowledge about a new project. Between the manuals and this forum, I'm about 99% complete, finishing up rebuilding the sickle bar and I will be ready for spring. When I get finished and the weather improves ( snow and single digits ) I will take a before and after picture so you can evaluate my work. Info only, my cub and I live in NE Oregon, Pendleton, the "Round Up City". Have a small place out of town where I raise hay and horses.

Again, thank you for your comments.

Welcome from NE Washington! Not too far from you... I love my Cub and this is a great website! I don’t know what I’d do without it. Glad to see another from the NW here!
