New NW Cub Loboy owner

Postby BrokeTractorNut » Mon Oct 17, 2016 10:41 am

New to the classic tractor scene but not new to wrenching on old steel. I have spent years on the oldwillysforum as I was completing my 1962 Willys Truck. Now on to the next project. I recently purchased a Loboy that my grandpa had restored at least 15 years ago. Unfortunately he sold it with his farm months before he passed away. A few years later I found out that it was acquired by a family friend who offered to sell it to me several times over the years. With a growing family I wasn't in a position to buy it. More recently I had the means and realized it may be my last opportunity. So I paid him $1,900 for the tractor of unknown year, loose wheel weights, a plow, a sickle, and some various components. Not sure if all the accessories are complete. Virtually no maintenance has been done to the tractor since my grandpa owned it. It barely runs and needs to be gone through. I will post pics once I have time and may be asking if I paid too much.

Congrats on acquiring your grandpa's LoBoy and welcome to the forum.

If you haven't performed basic maintenance yet, that would be a good place to start. The Owner's Manual is helpful locating all the lubrication points and basic maintenance. Here's a link to a thread that may also help: http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=145&t=16305 (read through the whole thread, additional info throughout).

Even though it was barely running, the additional implements and provenance (being your g-pa's Cub) was probably worth it in the long run. You did fine.

Again, welcome and let us know if we can help. :coffee:
