As of yesterday, I have joined the Farmall Cub collectors society. I have always been interested in the Cubs, and, well, you know, one of those deals too good to pass up. I purchased a 1951(?) "conventional" Cub, ser 128403 and a 1958 loboy, ser 10226. The loboy is a runner, the conventional is in kit form, lots of pieces and, I assume, lots of work. I am a wrench turner at heart, so looking forward to the task.
I have found manuals copied to CD on Bay, has anyone used them? Any recommendations?
Thanks, I am sure you will be hearing lost of "HELP" coming from the northwest Washington wilderness.
Welcome to the site.
I can't speak to the specific CDs you are looking at, but a lot that you find on eBay are not very well done. Some are copies made from the ones you can find on this site. Click on either/both of the "Manuals" links at the top of this page. If you want quality paper reprints, get them from Binder Books.
G'day and congrats to you on becoming a member of the Cub Community and the Multiple Cub Club to boot
Jim has you covered on your questions. Most of the manuals on have been lifted directly from the Manuals link above and have been on eBay for a long time. They have been converted to pdf's and are kind of difficult to navigate through as each page is a separate pdf. I have a couple of those CD's for comparison and they really are a waste of money. Most of the Manuals at the link above are available page by page or in an html file - one of the reasons I did this was to provide a free on-line lending library. The New Manuals offer PDF's.
As far as I am concerned, the CD's on are a waste of money. But then again, I am a little biased. As Jim mentioned if you want good quality reprints buy them from Binder Books. If you want originals, they do show up on eBay from time to time. A lot of the reprints on eBay are not very clear and are a waste of money. Some folks recommend the CaseIH reprints, they are good to a degree but the illustrations leave a lot to be desired. The very best manuals are originals if you can get them. Patience is the key - but then again, you have access to the scanned manuals until you find the ones you want for your own collection.
