If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

BD:

That is the defacto starting point.. but I was hoping for more...

Even with links pointing to the Cub FAQ's, there are still tons of questions on buying a Cub... as evidenced by this mornings posts.....

Maybe I am making work for myself, but hopefully we can condense some of this stuff into one how to that will cover most of the pitfalls... Jim has an excellent section, but there are always additional questions....

Am I re-inventing the Model T ????

The photos and some of the critical comments concerning this thread might make a pretty good start.

Some of the guys on this board buy and part out Cubs on a regular basis. Suggest getting close up photos of common and less common tell tail signs of problems and problem areas.
