I came across this on ebay the other night. The radiator appears to be the one used on the Farmalls A/B. I am not sure about the other components. The engine should be recognizable to all on this board. If I had the time and money, I'd buy it. :roll:

I haven!t seen one of them for a long time.We used to tow small aircraft with them. You will notice all the heavy steel plate was added for extra weight.They were not built for speed though. 8) :lol:

John,
I saved you for now.

All that steel makes them pretty heavy for their size -- about 2,400 shipping weight.

wharehouse tug. we used similar ones for small planes too. their weight was a great advantage. some of the steel castings were incredibly thick.

That radiator is identical to the one in My Cub power-unit. That exhaust outlet looks to be at least one & 1/2 inches at the manifold and then bushed down.

Bigdog, is there going to be a Cub demolition derby at the Cubfest? Looks like this "Cub" could clear the field, and then tow them away :)

Looks like it might be useful for herding "stray" cubs into my barn where they would be safe! :wink:
