Hi, I came to this forum because I just bought a Cub.
I have been around tractors most of my life but I'm really not very familiar with Farmall/International. I've been finding some good information so far and hope to get more.

Welcome to the forum. A Cubfest is different from a regular tractor show in that we work on the tractors that are brought. If you can bring yours, you could get a good evaluation of what it needs and also get help fixing things if the Cub needs work. If it doesn't need work, bring it anyway to show off. It doesn't have to be a trailer queen either.

Welcome to the Forum! Ditto on attending the CubFest. As Bob explained, it’s more than a tractor show. There are a couple articles in the Announcements section at the top of this page about them: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=8

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

Now that you’ve logged 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.

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

Remember:
  • Pictures are limited to 500 KB file size. Use an image reducer app or program to downsize pics.
  • 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.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.
