Thank you all for the warm welcome!! I live in the South East corner of Erie County, 35 miles Southeast of Buffalo, NY, Town of Sardinia, with a Chaffee, NY mailing address, also know as the snow belt or "Ski Country", as the local TV weathermen call it. Sorry I didn't relpy sooner but the zero weather and high winds are causing me a lot of trouble with the diesel tractor I use to keep my 400 foot driveway open. Glad to see that there are others in the area that have cubs. At present, I am trying to rebuild, preserve,a '48 cub, that I want to use for cultavating, I do some roadside vegetable sales. As a lot of you are doing, I'm taking pictures of the progress on the cub, which turned out to be in a lot worse condition than the previous owner stated, but it keeps me in the shop and helps the long cold winter pass more quickly. Many of the tips provided by everyone, has sure helped this project along. I'll post pictures if you really want to see some, and if I can figure out how to do them. :D

Ouch! How about Chautauqua? Grow up there and you have to learn to spell it. G248Cub gets it easy with Erie, he could have been in Cattaraugus or Allegany(which changes in PA).

Well, we can fix up your first request... have a read below and all should be clear. The forums, links and other informational sources available are easily navigated and provide tons of information. Enjoy, spend a little time reading and I am sure you will have intresting comments to post about your toys.. and yourself.

Oh,...if getting to Kinderhook is not too long a trip, do try to attend one of the CubFests Cecil hosts... you will be glad you did :!: :big smile:

Pics are a must.. we all like to see em so post away...



First, Image 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 :!: :D

The Welcome Wagon is a relatively brief introduction to the information that is currently available on Cub tractors, and answers many of the common questions new members ask right of the bat. Although it is a bit overwhelming :shock: , it has been designed to actually be copied to a Word Processor such as Microsoft Word (which preserves the active links), and saved to your desktop for easy reference at a later date or when you have a bit more time to read all the information contained in the links below. Please do so, enjoy and I hope this will be a useful aid in learning more about your New Cub Tractor :!: :D

Filling out your Image Profile is a real help. It just needs to be - State,City, County, a lot less than what is available in your local phone book. Knowing where you are will help in members offering to come help, when you are looking for parts - the area that would be useful to you etc., Also our CubFests, Mini-Fests or a simple KaffeeKlatsch/get together over coffee and a doughnut etc., to help each other benefits. Just a thought :!:

When adding signature lines to your profile, the use of animated or non-animated banners and large graphics files must be avoided. These files consume large amounts of bandwidth and cause slow page loading, especially for those forum members using dialup connections.

Ok, so here is the spiel Image:

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 The Cub Book of Knowledge. 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. The program has been extended and no new definite end-date has been announced at this point. It is an extension only and may end rather quickly depending on available stocks. Please do take advantage of this offer and get the new safety caps :idea: :!:

I truly hope that you enjoy your Cub and that you will be a frequent contributor to the forum. Again, Image to the Cub FamilyImage :D

Well if your parents bought an 18 bedroom summer house and expected you to drive 12 hours one way to visit and "work" on
the house during your vacation time you'd probably not be too interested in getting the spelling correct either. I'm glad it's almost done...so I can visit and not have to bring my tools. Chautauqua has very few winter reidents so you probably did not grow up there, right?

I grew up in that county, not the community by the lake.
