Hello from oklahoma, a new cub owner

Postby leerenovations » Sat Sep 03, 2011 4:16 am

Hello,

I just bought an original 1947 Farmall Cub that runs like a top, I have always been intersted in cubs but never owned one till now. Just wondering if there is anyone around me that has implements and someone I can learn all about cubs from.

We've had a couple other recent new members from Oklahoma. They aren't exactly in your neighborhood but some not that far away. Check these intro threads:

Rudi will probably be along shortly and post a bunch of pointers to useful reading. Don't miss the "search" function at the top right of the page. If you have a specific question, a lot can be found in previous discussions. And don't be afraid to post any question you have. Replies usually get posted pretty quickly.

Welcome to the forum! Is your's a Circle Cub? They were the earlier versions and sported the word "Cub" inside a cirle on the radiator sides.

I agree with Tomcat, you should try to get to the Arkansas CubFest. These are a lot of fun an a great learning experience. If you truly want to learn more about Cubs you'll be glad you attended. Many of us travel four hours and more and get a room to spend the night to attend a Cubfest. More info on the Arkansas Cubfest can be found by clicking here, Arkansas Cubfest
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.

Arthur Luke is in copan, north of Bartlesville on the Ks line. BillEBob is in Skiatook, and there is a growing contingent nearby. There is also the KS Cubfest held earlier in the year.

Congrats on your find.

In response, Yes, My Cub is a circle Cub, the only difference is that somewhere in its life, a hydraulic pump and touch control was added so I have hydraulics. And Id love somemore info about the Cubfest. Wish there was a gathering or club in Oklahoma though. Ive seen a lot of these around where I live.

leerenovations - Welcome to the forum! One of the best ways to attend a cubfest nearby is to host one yourself! Even if you are new to cubs if there are several of you in the area who can attend you will all learn something. Just pick a date and time and invite all the close cub owners over. Even if you just sit and talk about cubs you will get to know each other and someone will get their questions answered.
Having tons of cub experience is not a prerequisite for hosting a cub event.

As Jim indicated, here is the pointer text to the resources we have. Grab a cup of coffee, a comfy chair and enjoy :D

Image to Farmallcub.com :big smile: Forum Family. And you have come to the right place for all things Cub related. If you click on the Site Rules, Regulations, & Important Information, it will point you to :arrow: the Welcome Wagon wherein you will find links to many useful sites and topics. One of which is the Cub Manual Server. Enjoy!.


When it comes to the CubFests .. this is the event list for this year and there are a few still to come, CubFests and Gatherings Calendar 2011 and the 2012 calendar is in the planning stages. If you can make one it is well worth the drive .. the last CubFest I attended aside from the 2 we hosted here was well over a 10 hour drive and was worth every single minute on the road. Good friends, good neighbours, good company and a grand time :D :{_}:

Nice honest cub you have there. I see you are in the "barely fit under the steering wheel " club too. :big afro: The 2 large bolts under the tool box can come out, and the seat post moved back to the next set of holes. This will give you another couple inches of leg room.

There is also a spacer under the spring, undo the stop at the back/bottom of the seat post shaft. Removing this will give you a bit more room also.
