Famall Cub in Germany

Postby Stephan » Thu Jan 28, 2021 8:51 am

Hi all,

I got an Farmall Cub from 1947 with mower.
Tractros are like cherrys. The red are the good ones :D

I am trying to figure out how I can make my electricity work in an good way. Currently I am starting via 12v battery, but I would like the tractor to work on complete 6v original. Any help is appreciated.

I am from Germany, sorry for my english.

Stay safe and Best Regards
Stephan

Welcome.

Do you still have a magneto ignition? Is the 6 volt generator a Delco or has it been changed?

One more post and you can open the free on line manuals. The manuals are found under "Quick Links" located at the top left of this page.
I have an excuse. CRS.

The charging on a 47 cub would be 6 volt POSITIVE ground, if it is stock the generator would have a delco tag riveted to it painted black, black means it is 6 volt, if the voltage regulator is mounted on top of the generator then it has a cutout relay not a regulator which would be correct for 47, and the voltage is controlled by the headlight switch, here is a flow chart if you have that system yet, many have been converted through the years so verify what you have 1st

Welcome to the Forum, Stephan!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Don't know if you have any of the manuals to your Cub, but after your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

Take some pictures of your Cub and post them, we’d like to see it. Also, can you tell us the serial number of your '47 Cub? There should be a serial number plate, located on the front, right side of the tractor where the steering rod connects to the front end. There are also casting dates on your cast iron pieces that you may cross reference here: http://www.tmtractor.com/id/id_001.htm
I'd be curious to know what the serial number is on your '47, since I have a '47 as well.

Remember:
• When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
• Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
• When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

That looks like a French Cub from the mid 1950's. Perhaps the serial number is 709181? That would make it a 1957.

@indy61

Yeah, I think so. Sorry for confusing. I searched the serial number and only got an information for 09181

Any information available on this electrical stuff?

I believe it is still 6 volt positive ground distributor ignition. French Cubs used a Ducellier distributor.
Here is a place in the Netherlands that sells parts and may be able to give technical advice.

I already rebuild an Simson Schwalbe in the last years but tractors is an different story.

It would help if you can provide a specific problem or question. Please post it in the main Farmall Cub section.

There are some French Cub publications in the PDF Manuals section of the Quick Links in the upper left corner of this page.

Wie gehts, Stephan. Herzlich willkommen! I lived in Deutchland for five years - three in Berlin and two in Grafenwohr. Beautiful country! Where in Germany are you from?

Jim, it appears he is in Goldenstedt.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Thanks, Barnyard. Not very close to my old neck of the woods, but I have driven through that area. Germany is a beautiful country.
