Andrew:

When it comes to needing parts.. especially new parts, like the IH Carb Rebuild Kit, Touch Control Kit and all, give Tom and Lynn over at TM Tractor Parts a dingle via email or phone, and they will get the parts off to you really pronto. Tom and Lynn excell at service period, and it makes no matter if you are in the US, up here in Canada, in France or in New Zealand... they take care of it all!

You know you are in good hands with Tom and Lynn. :!:

Andrew:

I am assuming that you are trying to upload to the CubFest Photo Host. To resize, simply ulitize Irfanview 3.8 , choose resize/resample and choose 640x480. Then save and reload. That should solve it. You can also use the Picture Resizer in teh Windows XP PowerToys Suite. Links are on the main page of the server.

The carb.. have a look at Lurker Carl's Carb Fixes. Do yourself a major favour, and don't waste time on a non-IH Carb Kit. Just get theIH Carb Kit. It is a bit pricier, but this is a very good example of "you get what you pay for!". And Tom can help there. So can some of the CaseIH Dealers, but if you go to a dealer be prepared to take a copy of the Parts manual page that applies to the parts you need. Many of the younger parts counter people, have no clue what a cub is.. let alone getting parts...

Have fun keep us posted...

Welcome to the new international member!

Another question of trivia.

How many international members are there?

You got the picture posting right. Now we'll be looking for updates as you progress. Good job!
