Hi everyone I am new to this forum. Today I took posession to my dads cub. He passed away 5 years ago and my mom 1 year ago. My 7 siblings and I are cleaning out 60 years of posessions and I got the cub. My DH and I would like to do some much needed work on it and I need to know what year it is? Is it a Lo boy? just some general info. I got a # off the front right plate and one stamped on the side of the motor. How do I tell I tried to figure it out by the list on the cub info but I can make no sence of it. Can any one help??
I love my little cub and have all of my life I want to make my daddy proud by taking good care of it.
Welcome, Ellen - sorry about the circumstances but glad you had the foresight to gain control of the Cub. Up on the right front frame rail, there should be an aluminum plate that gives all the info needed to determine the year of your Cub. Craig
Ellen - If you will list the information on the serial number plate perhaps we can help you. A picture will also help us identify it.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!
Ellen: If you will post the number from the plate we can determine the year your Cub was built. And, welcome to the forum. We hope you visit frequently. Forum members can answer most of the questions which you might have on care and use of your Cub. Dan
the front plate has the #s 127849
The #s stamped on the side in front of the clutch are
The IH logo L 2 X

I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

First off.. just by doing what you are doing you are honouring your Daddy and making him proud. We will do what we can to help you as you travel this road. Hopefully the information in the Welcome Wagon below will help you out some. I know there is a ton of stuff there... and it may seem overwhelming, but just take it one bite at a time. Grab a cup of coffee, a comfy chair and set down to read. You can hit the Manual Server link above at any time to get to it.
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
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 Work on Your Cub - Maintenance Tips and Techniques. 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 if 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
