I've been watching the forum for some time now and have finally become a member. I have learned quite a bit about Cubs since I have been watching and I needed that as I was never a farmer nor have I ever driven a tractor until I got mine. I have a 1949 Cub and a 1956 100. Both are still in process. I bought the 100 before the Cub but the Cub is further along than the 100. The Cub was stripped to the engine block and the transmission. It is ready for sandblasting. Most parts have been either primed or painted and ready to install. It's been a lot of hard work and a lot of fun. I did have one advantage though, I worked in a body shop for 12 years earlier in my life and that has helped immensely. Hoping to get to Bloomsburg this year. Looking forward to a great time on here!
First, 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
Glad to hear that you are well along on the restore of both the Cub and the 100. Both should be a lot of fun. You will probably find both to be a lot of fun to play with.. We shall be looking for as you progress. I have a sneaky suspicion though that you may find it hard to stop at just 1 Cub. For some reason they can get pretty darn addictive
Ok, so here is the spiel :
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 Article Archive. 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, to the Cub Family
I can't thank enough for the info you sent. I have very little of it now. I sure wish I would have gotten on board earlier, it would have made life a little easier. But I have the direction now and it will sure help from here on out. Of course it will take more than 5 minutes to get all the info that you made available, but I will get there eventually. Thanks again for the welcome.
You are very welcome. Anytime you have a question, need help to find something, simply ask.. one of our members will respond for sure

Little ole Maineville is located in the southern part of Warren county. We have a blinking lite in the downtown section. I retired and moved here 5 years ago thinking I was moving out in the country! Ha! Ever since I moved here Warren county has been the fastest growing county in the state. While the village has a population of about a 1000, the township of Hamilton (surrounding the village) now has a population of 20,000 and still growing. I guess I'm going to have to move further out.
