Just picked up my first Cub this weekend. 1957 that came with the cultivator, planter, and sickle bar mower. Also came with an unexpected addition: a locked up engine. It was sitting for a few years, but I pulled the head and filled the cylinders with PB Blaster. The 4th cylinder didn't drain out, so there's my primary suspect. So I've got a great winter project.

I'm no stranger to fixing up old machinery. I've got a 1940 Farmall H, Little Genius #8 2 bottom plow, 8' IH disk, 8' JD CC cultivator, JD 290 planter, JD 2 section rotary hoe, New Holland 10' fertilizer spreader, old Flarebox wagon with IH endgate seeder, and an IH 1 row corn binder. All of which are in working or close to working order.

Welcome to the forum from Arkansas. A 57 is a great looking cub. Ton of information on here and a lot of experience with cubs if you end up having questions just ask away. Some of those guys will usually have the answers.

Welcome to the FORUM. Sounds like you have the project well in hand. Now that the head is off, you can remove the rod caps and take the pistons out the top. I've had a couple of C60 engines that were stuck and used that method for freeing the pistons. Good Luck with it. Stan

I think I'm gonna spend some time with it this weekend getting the engine pulled and up on a stand. I work as parts manager at the local New Holland dealer, so I can borrow some stuff from work to get it done. If you guys had any suggestions as to tools I should get for rebuilding an engine, I'd like to know. I've never rebuilt one before, but I'm not scared to try.

Make sure the torque tube is well supported. I made plywood stands using these plans: viewtopic.php?f=144&t=61114

The front axle pivot point can possibly allow the engine to roll. Take that into consideration. Also take a look at the engine BLUE RIBBON SERVICE MANUAL GSS 1007, the following link should take your there:

I made these splitting stands: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=144&t=60737. I admit it is overkill but a split Cub is easy to move around the shop, as needed, and is very stable. I, too, recommend wedging the front axle.
