Introducing "Oilstretcher" the Cub
Thought I'd take a minute and introduce myself. I've been around farms and farming all my life although I've not actually been a farmer. I've got a background in Music, Business, Education, Insurance, and Industry. (In other words, I'm not sure what I'll be if I ever choose to grow up). Experience includes Hospital management, School administration, Aircraft maintenance, Pilot, Teacher, and other careers along the way.
I'm fortunate to live on my Grandad's farm in southeast Kansas. He bought the old Toothacre place in 1911 and my Dad and all but two of his siblings were born here. All that remains of the Toothacre's estate is the family well that still has good water.
I've always tinkered with engines and all things mechanical. I overhauled and rebuilt my first car before I could legally drive.
Current tractors on the farm are: 1930 John Deere D. 1941 John Deere B, 1939 Ford 9N, 1948 Allis Chalmers C, 1956 Farmall 400, and of course the great little Cub. I've owned "Oilstretcher" since 2001 when I bought him from the original owner who was a Harvard Oil Filter Factory Rep. He's pretty much original and came with plow, disc plow, disc, sickle mower, and a cool under belly stone boat.
I've really appreciated the inputs from all of you and your expertise with all things cub.
