False Alarm!

Postby Barnyard » Sun Feb 27, 2011 8:34 pm

I checked out an ad for a set of 9.5-24 tires yesterday. They turned out to be in terriblle shape and the seller was firm on his $150 price. Needlless to say I passed on the deal. However he did say there was a Cub sitting in weeds behind a house down the road that might be for sale. Hmmm...interesting, the Cub locator never went off when I had gone down the road. I thought I better check it out. We went down the road and I turned into a drive and I said "There it is". Rosie said "Where? I don't see any tractors" She doesn't know how to look yet. I got out and went to the door but there was no answer so I left. I could make out an image back by the barn, but with no one home I wasn't gonna go back there.

I got home and looked up the address on the county auditor's website and crossed the name with a phone number on whitepages.com. It turns out the owner didn't live at that address so we went back today. Still no answer at the door, so I called the number. The owner said we could go back and look. She said the tractor had been sitting for about 20 years and her husband would probably sell it.

I went back to the weed bed and found this.

No wonder the Cub Locator never made a sound. I'm thinking about it though

I think I might see a touch control housing under the gas tank. Am thinking it's a Super A. Wish I was closer to you--bet it's got some parts on it I could use!

Let us know if you get it. Looks like getting it out of the "jungle" could be a chore in and of itself!

Bill,
Looks like it might be a W. Is it?

I thought it was a Super A at first but It may well be a W series. It is hard to see the bolster in the photo and I never paid much attention to it when I was there.

I'm putting my money on Super A, for these reasons:

The hood front nameplate is the new style IH plate. I believe all the W series had the old style Farmall/International nameplate.

The rear weights look like A,B, Super A weights.

It looks like it has front weights and they look like the A, B, Super A, C, Super C, H type.

The steering wheel looks offset to me.

Thanks Don! I never gave the offset steering a thought when I said W series.

The rear weights looked like A weights to me. And, good eye, it does have front weights.

No, because I know it isn't a Cub. :(

Here is the other side.

It might have to come to the barnyard if the price is right. :lol:

The killer is going to be the fact that the manifold has been sitting open for who knows how many years. :(

Let's see, new tires, engine work, rest of the tractor unknown. One reference says tractor weighs around a ton to a ton and one half.

$200- a ton, less time and expense. Looks like a $50- tractor.
I have an excuse. CRS.

The woman said it's been there for twenty years. I'd say it was uncovered nearly, if not all of that.

That ain't gonna happen. If it get's to the barnyard it'll be a parts machine. :shock: Did I just say what I thought I said.

Barnyard, if you get it, please send me the serial number. I am compiling a Super A serial number registry, of sorts.

Thanks,
