Hello gentlemen -from Middle Tennessee

Postby Portermorris1 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:29 am

I’m a new member. Recently purchased a couple of Cubs...one running, and one that’s been been sitting since Moby dick was a minnow. I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I’m new to this type of forum. But I’ve been reading over some very good information. I’ve owned a Farmall 140 for years... and now that my kids are grown and I have more time I want to restore the non running cub in my spare time . I’ve rebuilt an engine before, but never a stuck motor from years of sitting outside. So...here goes nothing
:D

Welcome to the forum.
All the info you will need is right here. Most all the manuals are here and you can access them after you make 2 or 3 post's. Use the search and you will find what you want most of the time. If you cant find the info you need, just ask, there are no stupid questions.

Thank you sir. I’m currently soaking a stuck motor. Been checking it every couple days. It sat under the only hole in the roof of a huge barn and was subjected to all the elements. Plus the vertical exhaust wasn’t covered. The guy I got them from said that it’s been sitting there since he was a kid, and he’s in his fifties now. My work is cut out for me. Thanks

Check the side of the block on the right near the bolster for any cracks. It may not be worth the effort to rebuild.

Based on my experience with an engine like you describe you are in for a complete tear down. You can expect everything in the engine to be stuck if it got water into the cylinders. One alternate is to simply locate a running engine and do a swap out. There's very little difference in the C60 engines from beginning to end of production and they were also used on combines, bailers and marine applications. That makes the choice pretty wide for selection.

Congrats on picking up a couple Cubs. That makes you a member of the MCC (Multiple Cub Club; :wink: )

Would agree with Stan (above) about buying a working engine--IF you're wanting to have another running Cub soon. Otherwise, if you're wanting to tinker around with the stuck motor and enjoy doing that, then you now have that opportunity. Keep soaking it down with Kroil or a 50/50 mixture of acetone and auto tranny fluid, then put it in 3rd gear and rock it forward and backward every now-and-then.

Take note of the 2018 CubFest Calendar (located here: http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=98130) and what a CubFest is all about (couple articles in Announcements section located here: http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=8)
