Looking forward to learning about Cubs

Postby DrMom » Tue May 10, 2022 4:20 pm

I've inherited my father's 1952 Cub, which I use primarily to plow snow, but this year we are going to attempt using the land plow to open up a new garden area because there can never be enough potatoes or corn. So I'm hoping to learn from the experts here how to make full use of my Cub. Dad is still around to supervise, which is great.

Consider bringing yourself, your Cub and any interested family members to Cubfest Northeast in Oxford, NY in late September. Lots of good food, camaraderie and help with your Cub.

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.

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

The 1952 Cub operator's manual is at the upper left of the page, at Quick links, then go to PDF Manuals.
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.
It shows how Cubs originally looked in it. The lube section begins on page 14.
I can't post the manual here.

It shows the electrical system that a 1952 Cub originally had.
Cubs made before mid 1964 originally had 6 volt, positive ground electrical systems.

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 it with low oil in a gear housing can damage the parts in the housing.
There are 3 separate gear housings, with 3 separate oil levels to check, in the rear area of a Cub, 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.

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. :)

Hi,
Below is the Cub 193 Plow owner's manual, if you need it. It has lots of info, and shows how to put the plow on the Cub.
The 193 Plow is for use on Cubs with the standard drawbar.
You don't use the manual lift lever, to the left of the seat, if the Cub has Touch Control. :)

Welcome to the group!
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Plan your garden to be more of a rectangle shape.
