Cubarama 2017

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Tue Sep 05, 2017 1:19 pm

Just slightly over 3 weeks away if anyone is planning to come. I have been volunteered to tear down a Cub magneto and a distributor and show some of the tips to repairing and maintaining them. No promises they will work afterward though. I will also bring a few copies of the ignition course covering how a coil works, etc. that I presented a few years ago if anyone wants a copy. If anyone wants me to email one, send me your email address via PM. If anyone would like to put on some kind of a tractor related demonstration, get in touch with Jamie at http://www.cub-a-rama.com/
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Thanks, John. I'll be there, at least on that Saturday. Maybe on Friday, if I bring my '47 Cub.

This won't help in trying to find a willing donor.

Due to mine and wife's health, weather, and other problems Tinker Time is going to be a little impromptu this year, I plan to have a magneto and distributor taken apart, plus adjustable timing light (needed for pulleys that only have one mark) to check timing, and a tester for RPM and spark voltage. I will also bring some copies of the ignition course I did a few years ago if anyone wants them. Also plan to have a cub with no hood as a demonstration to show newbies maintenance points that are over looked, etc and samples of a few specialty tools that can be bought reasonably and are handy.

Does anyone know if the garden plot will be available for plowing this year?

Not sure but I think it's always been available...just not many wanting to use it. I'd love to watch you plow!

I would also love to see the plowing. I wish I had a plow setup for my Cub. I have plowed a few times with my garden tractors.

Just talked to Jamie, and she was going to confirm it, but so far as she knew the plot would be available to plow.

If it is, if anyone brings a plow and tractor, that would be great. I will try to be there with my wife on Friday, and then with my brother and nephew on Saturday.
