Hi to all - last weekend we started restoring our 1948 Farmall Cub - Serial #21005. Dad, purchased this tractor in the late 1960's. We have the cultivator, planter, cycle bar mower, land plow and snow plow. We've got the ol'girl pretty much stripped down to just the bell housing and transmission.

The engine will be going out for boiling after we seat the valves and hone the pistons. You can see a video of her in action last July.

After this one is done, we've got a Farmall H (1947?) to do, then a very early serial # Cub Cadet and 1950's Cub that really just needs a paint job.

We're looking forward to being a solid contributor to this forum. We're happy for the knowledge received already - thanks so much for running this site.
