Hello from EdinCincinnati

Postby EdinCincinnati » Mon Dec 12, 2016 10:09 am

Hi! This was my grandfathers Lo Boy.

Image

It had been sitting in a barn for 10 years and I finally got motivated to get it running again and its completion was Nov 2016

All I know...it says Lo Boy on the front but I don't know if it is a 154 or whatever the other model numbers are.

Serial number is 1669

Welcome. Your tractor is a very nice looking 1955 International Lo-Boy. The 154 is a later, much different looking tractor. Enjoy it!

Nice looking for sure, but I should point out that it has an earlier model regular size Cub hood and dash on it.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

That doesn't surprise me...but it's what was on it. I just disassembled and had my body shop remove the paint, repaint and I reassembled.

There are some other oddities I've found as well...it has a threaded rod from the governor rod to the throttle and I suspect the zenith carburetor and choke cable aren't original either.

There is nothing wrong with your Cub. Many Cubs throughout there existence have had other model year parts added. It doesn't take away from there looks at all. I just thought I would point that out. The Carb and choke are definitely an add on.

It is still a very nice Cub.

My apologies...my previous response was a bit abrupt...I really appreciate the kind words about how it turned out!

A change I made, it previously had an under slung exhaust but this tractor is now destined for a life of pulling a trailer full of kids and I didn't want the fumes blowing straight at them - so I changed it to vertical since the hole was already in the hood.



I'll look into the CubFest for June - that sounds like a GREAT learning opportunity!!

I have another CUB serial number 65443 that I'm trying to muster up the desire to restore it. It is much worse shape since it had been sitting in a briar patch for at least 20 years. If I bring it to the Cubfest and leave it...would I get in trouble? :lol:
