I need to get a newer photo, since the mower is off and cultivators are on.

Hey MeAndKT. Look around and ask questions and you will probably learn all about your cub.

Hey that looks like a fun one, good shape besides a little rust. Probably needs a little tuning and love. How does it run? Good?

Welcome to the forum! Decent looking Cub. Hope you have a lot of fun with her! You are in the right house. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and we all like pictures! Try to attend a Cubfest if you can. Lots of like minded Cub fans and help if you need it. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Forum! I moved your thread from the Farmall Cub section to Introduce Yourself.

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 any manuals that interest you. Service and Implement Manuals are also available.

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

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

Thanks for the pic of your Cub. Looks like a worker.

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.

Thanks everyone.
I finally got it out into the garden and planted my greens today. It runs well. I’m looking forward to working it for years.

Hi,
The Cub operator's manual can help you learn about maintenance that the Cub needs.

You didn't say what year Cub you have.
Below is the 1965 Cub and LoBoy operator's manual. The experts on here recommend people read it. It has lots of info about operation, maintenance, and lubrication. There is a table of contents on page 1, and the index begins on page 75.
It shows how Cubs originally looked in it. The lube section begins on page 59.
Changing the trans, final drive, and steering gear oils are on page 70.

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

It shows the electrical system that a 1965, and up to mid 1974 Cub originally had.
Cubs made after mid 1964 originally have 12 volt, negative ground electrical systems.
The manual has 6 and 12 volt system info, disregard the 6 volt info, it looks like your Cub is 12 volts.

You can find the year of the Cub using the tractor serial number.
Page 3 in the manual tells how to find the serial numbers.
The engine serial number is different, after the first Cubs, in 1947.
When you find the number, you can look in the list of serial numbers at the top of the page at Cub Info.
Sometimes the serial number plate is painted over by someone, or the words are faded and you can't read them, or the plate is gone.
The serial number is stamped into the plate.

The Touch Control uses Case IH Hy-Tran fluid. It is sold at Case IH dealers.
There are other brands, be sure it works with IH hydraulic systems before buying one.
The manual tells how to check and change the Touch Control fluid, and remove the air from the system.
Be sure to check the fluid with the arms in the rear, or down position, the manual says.

I would check or change all the oils before using the Cub. Using a Cub with low oil in a gear housing can damage the parts in it.
There are 3 separate gear housings at the rear area of a Cub, with 3 separate oil levels to check, the transmission, and 2 final drives.

The transmissions in Cubs commonly get water in them, from rain, or condensation inside the housing over time.

The air cleaner is an oil bath air cleaner. Dirt that is sucked in settles to the bottom of the oil cup. It should have clean, light motor oil in the oil cup to work right.

The owner's manual tell how to change the oils, and what oils to use.

There is a search box at the top of the page, to the right of the Farmall Cub, you can find info in posts that have been made. :)
