Newbie from Pennsylvania

Postby woodswalker » Fri Feb 13, 2009 12:01 pm

Well i just bought as far as I can tell a 1949 cub " serial 69242 " with a front plow and sickle bar mower . Cant wait will be picking it up tommorrow. There are no hydraulics in the rear. was wondering if its possible to add the fast hitch to this or what ever i need so I would can plow the garden. Also picking up a woods belly mower. Hope we get a pile of snow and the grass grows tall. Well i know i'll be on here lots. looks like a great place for info.

Welcome to the forum. You have come to the right place. You asked about adding a Fast Hitch, yes you can, however, it is not necessary. Plows are available that do not require a FH.

Have fun with your new Cub.

Welcome to the forum. We are looking forward to seeing many posts from you. Does your Cub have a rear rockshaft? If not, you might consider adding one to complement the drawbar. Dan

Welcome to the Forum. Great to hear that you've got a Cub. You may want to spend a little time clicking on CBoK (Cub book of knowledge), the manuals, Parts DB at the top, a lot of good info there. The sponsors at the bottom of the page are also a very reputable and reliable source of both new and used parts for your tractor. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, we all want to help in any way we can.

You won't be for long. Soon you will be a part of the gang.

Welcome to the forum. This is the best place you can land for all your Cub needs.

You may want to check the announcements forum and find a CubFest near you. A CubFest is an excellent place to meet other members and learn so much more about your Cub.

There are four upcoming Cubfests that are 4 to 6 hours from you.

:applause: .. congrats on acquiring your very first Cub. I can pretty well say that it will be hard to stop at just one.. cause they get really addictive. Ask Bill :!: :D

Have a read below.. follow the links, and a lot of interesting stuff will pop right up. Sure will answer a lot of questions you may have right off the top. Enjoy and Image .. of the new addition. :!:

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

Rich,
Welcome to the forum.
You are within a 2 hour ride of the resident Cub moldboard plow guru, Bill Hudson.
Give him a shout and maybe you can pick his brain for a spell.
Barnyard is right, plan on a visit to a CubFest this spring, summer, or fall. Check the announcements forum.
