Pair of Cubs in NW Ohio

Postby Pompiere » Sun Aug 06, 2017 2:48 pm

Hello,

I looked at this forum when I first got the tractors but never joined. I will be laid up for a little while while I recover from an injury, so I thought I might as well sign up to keep busy during my forced down time.
I acquired a couple of Cubs when my mom sold her house in the country. One, a 1958 Lo-boy with a Woods belly mower is a worker. It has been converted to 12 volt and jumps to life when you touch the key. It was been painted several years ago, but it needs freshened up. The other is a 1952 Cub that is just for fun. It won't win any prizes for factory originality, but it looks nice from 10 feet. I need to trouble shoot the electrical system to get it back in service for my great-nephews.

Ron

Welcome, Ron. Used to live in Oak Harbor and spent many a breakfast at the corner window table at Kozy Corner. Since I left, I haven't had prime rib as good as Carl prepared. Boy I do miss that.

Hi, Ron. Welcome to the forum. Since you have a couple of posts under your belt, you can access the manuals now. They have been a big help to me, as well as the members on this forum.

Thanks for the welcome! I think Karl is mostly retired now, but Kozy's is still open. I don't go there often, but they have good home cooking. And Pies!

I'm pretty sure the electrical problem is only a corroded battery cable. I just haven't been able to spend any time on it. Hopefully I'm back on my feet soon.

I just looked up the serial numbers and found the Cub is actually a 1951.
