Silver Fern:

First, Image to the greatest forum on the internet, and to the Cub Family. You will find that all the folks on this forum are kind, helpful and just full of Cub info and knowledge. They also happen to be the finest folks I have ever met :!: :D

Image your image tag points to a dead link....


It is refreshing and wonderful to see our friends from down under joining the ranks. Please do visit and post often, so that we can better get to know y'all. One of our members just spent a month in Australia and New Zealand.. visiting and of course keeping an eye peeled for Cubs, Super A's and other Letter Series tractors.. :wink: :D We hope you will post pics of where you live and of course your Cub.. 8) :) 8) :!:

Ok, so here is the spiel Image:

I would suggest that you read this thread: New Members and Visitors, Please READ Prior to Posting. There are many great links to informative pages such as the ATIS FAQ's 1 and ATIS FAQ's 2, The Best of H.L. Chauvin who has written very interesting articles on troubleshooting common problems with your Cub. One of the other projects we have been working on and it will be a continuing effort is the How To Work on Your Cub - Maintenance Tips and Techniques. This the the place to go to get all the quick links to some very good articles written by many members of the forum on solving some of the problems we encounter as we repair, maintain and up-grade our Cubs. Keep looking for this to grow.


Also, you might want to visit the Cub Manual Server as there is tons of info on servicing, maintaining and re-building your Cub. In addition to this basic information, there are also a number of other useful tools available on the server. There is the Specialty Services page which has contact info for neat stuff like getting your seats recovered, buying quality Decals, Serial Number tags and a host of other neat items. Also there are the Parts Pages - both Used Parts Suppliers and New Parts Suppliers pages with links to quality dealers. I am always looking for YOUR favourite dealers for New and Used Parts to include here. These pages are intended to complement our Official FarmallCub.com Website Sponsors:

I would also recommend that you visit Binder Books and purchase the three most important manuals you can own for Maintenance, Repair and Rebuilding your Cub. These are the Owner's Manual, the GSS-1411 Service Manual and the TC-37F Parts Manual. Although they are available on the Cub Manual Server, it is better is you also have your own paper copy. Binder Books is the only Authorized IH Publication Reprint House and they have the best quality manuals available. Most other's are not of the same quality. Just a personal thought here, the I&T Shop Manuals, although helpful in some areas, really are not sufficient for the job. If you wish though, they are good additional reference works.

IF you really want to get the skinny on all things Cub, might I suggest you get a copy of Ken Updike's Farmall Cub and Cub Cadet's :?: . While you are at it Original Farmall Cub and Cub Cadet is Ken's latest addition to the series. Along with Guy Fay's Letter Series Originality Guide, these are three must have's in anyone's collection.

In addition to the above information, don't forget to check out the various articles that are available to help with your Repair, Restore, Rebuild or just your Maintenance Projects. There are a number of sub pages such as Electrolysis or Rust Zapper's, Maintenance Tips, Jigs and Techniques, Implement and Part Sketches and of course the Paint, Decals & Other Finish Questions which has the Paint Chart and the Paint Committee Decisions links.

Oh, and while the program still lasts.. you might want to check the Announcement: Navistar Free Gas Cap Offer - On-Line Form thread at the top of the Cub Forum and send away for the new style safety cap before that program runs out as well.

I truly hope that you enjoy your Cub and that you will be a frequent contributor to the forum. Again, Image to the Cub FamilyImage :D

Hi, and a warm welcome! :D

Which island? I understand the south island has some interesting tractor treks using all antiques.

Can you tell us why, on the south end of the south island there are towns named Clinton and Gore? :( In the past I corresponded regularly with a landscaper from Nelson named Dot Parsons, and she didn't know.

George asked:

Originally known as Longford, Gore was renamed after Sir Thomas Gore Browne, an early Governor of New Zealand.

Clinton was named for Henry Pelham-Clinton, 5th Duke of Newcastle, former British Secretary of State for the Colonies.

Other points of interest George….
In Australia
Clinton, South Australia

In Canada
Clinton, Alberta
Clinton, British Columbia
Clinton, Ontario
Clinton Point, Nunavut
Clinton Township, Ontario
Clinton, Prince Edward Island
Clinton Creek, Yukon

And close to home: :roll:
Clinton Township, Ohio
Clinton Township, Franklin County, Ohio
Clinton Township, Fulton County, Ohio
Clinton Township, Knox County, Ohio
Clinton Township, Seneca County, Ohio
Clinton Township, Shelby County, Ohio
Clinton Township, Vinton County, Ohio

Of course it is, Jack. I haven't seen it first hand but I believe all the glowing reports I've heard. :D As a matter of fact there's a special file in my cabinet devoted to New Zealand.

I didn't really think the towns were named for a couple of our politicians. :(
