New cub owner

Postby Poundfl94 » Tue Jun 02, 2020 7:31 pm

New to the forums. I have a cub 154 with a 3160 deck. Rebuilt one of the deck spindles last year. Hard to find parts for them, ended up weld in ng up the worn area and grinding down to fit the bearing. Been mowing with it and it does a pretty nice job.

Welcome to the forum.
My local equipment repair guy calls these mowing machines. Sometimes you can find used spindles on eBay. There was a pressure washer parts guy online that had the bearings cheap.
Remember to loctite the nuts on the spindles.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Welcome aboard! If you get desperate on parts, HamaltonBobs carries some of the 3160 parts, at a cost of course. Sounds like you know how to get er' done though! Post pictures and share what you learn if you can. We love to learn from each other!

Welcome to the Forum!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Don't know if you have any of the manuals to your Cub, but now that you’ve logged your 2nd post, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Might also enjoy reading through this thread: What to do with a Cub you just brought home

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see them.

Remember:
• When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
• Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
• When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.
