Hey Buddy, got room for a project tractor on the project list? Main focus is to install the magneto or convert it to battery ignition, then get it started up and check it out to see what else needs to be done (49 regular cub). Thanks, Stan

Is there still time to get on the project list. Got my tractor rebuilt back together I have fire but am having trouble getting it to crank. No smell of fuel in the cylinders so I'm not sure if it's getting fuel. I set timing to all the proper marks so if distributor is off its not much. Any help with that and explaining how to hook up tools would be wonderful.

Just wondering if anyone would be interested in helping me with a touch control rebuild?

Wish I were going to be there...I certainly would help. I can offer some advice, though...

Depending on which block you have, print off a copy of the HOW TO for that block. Here is the one for the later block #360719R1
http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=42857
And here is one for the earlier block #351686R1
http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=89514

Have a tray of some sort that you can keep all the parts separated and in order as you remove them...I use an inexpensive plastic silverware tray from Walmart. Line them up exactly as in the HOW TO photos...much easier to reinstall correctly.

Clean the exterior befor you start...really clean...no dirt!! When you have the block stripped, including ALL the plugs and the relief valve (if installed), clean, clean, and clean again by spraying carb cleaner in every hole you can find! Then use compressed air to remove any residual cleaner...blow in every hole again.

Be methodical, and I recommend taking photos (lots of them!) as you go along. Be very liberal with the HyTran fluid when reassembling...pour some into every hole, then dip everything into it as you reassemble parts. (Some sheets of cardboard helps contain the mess!!)

You should have no problem doing this. Look at the tools they say you need and have them with you.

Sorry to have hijacked the thread!

Thank you Dale, I think with those instructions I can do it myself and save hauling it to La from Sheldon Mo.

I've heard it said that "life is what happens while you are making other plans." Well life just changed my other plans. We just learned that Jo is scheduled for carpal tunnel surgery March 2 (first available time slot), so I will be pulling fulltime nursing duties and will not be attending. I'll put it in the plans for next year.

Mr. Bill, I can identify with your quote, sorry you will not be making the trip. Hope Ms Jo does well and you will get to hone the nursing skills. Maybe next year. Meantime, "tie a knot in the rope and hang on for the ride". Stan

So sad to hear our face-to-face meeting will have to be postponed. Hope your wife's surgery is successful on every level.

If you tear into your hydro pump at home and find the large filter needs to be replaced, let me know. I have a box ready to bring to the LA CubFest (or to the NEOK or the Kansas CubFests) to build you a replacement filter. I just need you to bring the old filter to take measurements and use the steel rings. PM me on what you want to do.

If the project list is not filled up, I would like some help straightening a carburetor.

I could not find a way to delete my post. I got my tractor running so no need to worry anyone. I still plan on attending in hopes of learning some things.

Looks like the TN boys will have to miss LA Cubfest. Several events have thrown off our timing in order for us to go. We were looking forward to this fine event and are so disappointed.

Best route driving in from Dallas? Would y’all recommend taking I 20 easy to Vicksburg and then south on HWY 27? Or are the roads better going south from Shreveport on HWY 49?

My experience with LA (and most other state highways) is 2 lanes and does not lend towards making good time traveling. I would stay on the 4 lanes and interstates as much as possible.
