I'm a new guy who just joined this site, and I wanted to say Thank You for all of the collective information! I just put some money down on a sweet Farmall Cub. It has been owned for many years by an old friend now aged 89, and recently he decided to sell it to me. I've never owned a Farmall before, but I confess I am deeply interested! Each time I visited his barn, he took great pride in starting the Cub, and idling it down so smooth. We'd just stand there and smile and listen to that little Tractor purrrrrr........... like a little swiss watch! I don't know all that much about the details yet, it appears to be a mid-50's model, and has some cultivators and hydraulic lift, no mower. It apears to have had a gentle life-- the paint is original and is in great shape. It has always started and run beautifully. I am planning to simply enjoy it as a collectible, and maybe pull a small wagon for hayrides in the fall. I will probably complete the sale and bring it home next week, and as soon as i do, I will post some photos and ask for everyone's best advice. I have enjoyed classic cars for years, we own a 67 Mustang Convertible and a 53 Mercury Custom Sedan. The Farmall will likely stay in the barn with the Mercury, they'll grow to be great friends I'm sure!
Thanks again for the amazing amount of information, I look forward to sharing more about the Farmall as soon as it's home!
Welcome to the forum Steve!
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Welcome aboard Steve. You'll enjoy the little tractor when you get it. These are nice little machines and can do a lot of work with them.
Once again, welcome aboard.
PS: This may help you ID your tractor. http://www.antique-tractor.com/CubFAQ/cub_faq.html
If you can't find it, don't lose it.
Steve, glad you found a Cub you like. I 've been through your area many times over the years on our annual trip to Mears for our annual 4th of July vacation. We haven't made it the past few years and we sure miss those sand dunes.
If you like to travel a lttle you may want to check out the Buckeye Cub Tug next weekend. It is almost a six hour drive but if you get a room and spend the weekend like the rest of us you will meet a great bunch of Cub owners.

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like she's in tip-top shape, so you probably won't need too much help. However, we love to help so bring us all your questions.
And, oh yes, pictures. We do love pictures, especially (as the others have said) of unrestored ones that have been sheltered.

Welcome to the Forum Steve!
It sounds like that little gem will be going to a good home!
Don't be shy and keep us posted,
Steve welcome to the forum.

Steve, Isn't it a pleasure to just listen to these little tractors sit at idle? Mine is a '49, and I'm always just blown away that it still purrs as well as it does. Life is good in Cub World--Welcome.
