New guy with a new Cub - Carson City, NV.

Postby Ampete » Sat Feb 20, 2010 6:42 pm

Hi All,
I got married early this year and along with a new wife, I got a 1948 Cub that had been in storage for about 20 years. It belonged to her Dad and when he passed it went into storage. I got it running this summer and I'm in the proccess of trying to restore it a bit. I'm also looking to add a few things to it as it is a pretty basic Cub; no electric start, no PTO, and no hydraulics.
I've really enjoyed reading some of the great posts on the forum and I'm looking forward to getting my Cub fixed up.
Thanks everyone,
Andy

Welcome to the forum Andy. All the help you need can be found here. Enjoy that Cub. t's good that it will stay in the family.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Welcome to the group. We had a guy just down the road from you in Gardenerville. He had several Cubs, but I haven't heard from him in years.
