Hi,
My son and I have recently purchased a 1971 International Cub. Being new to the the tractor world we would like to learn about this unit.
Thanks for having us.

WELCOME! :hattip:
From your zip code, you're not far from one of the best annual Cubfests (LA Cubfest)...usually held in March. Here is the 2022 calendar:

It's a good opportunity to meet a bunch of good, knowledgeable folks, eager to share their knowledge as well as give a hand with problems you might be having with your "new-to-you" cub!

Check out the HOW TO section! Full of info:

Oh, and we do love photos, of your tractor AND your son tinkering on it! :D

Welcome to the Forum!

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

After 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 for maintenance and understanding your Cub) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

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. Make sure if the Cub hasn't been started in a while (months or years) that you prime the oil pump or at least watch the oil gauge to ensure you have adequate pressure. Here's a How To on priming the oil pump: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=113357

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

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see it.

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.
