I agreed with the others until this question. That rod should be straight.

There was another version of this part that had 2 small bends, but the middle of this one should be completely straight. Pictures here.

She is working with agriculture and helping people with being more sustainable in thier raising food. Her experience and now your posts show me again how much we take for granted here. Great job keep posting.

I bought a set of front tires from the states, they cost me barely more expensive than buying here automotive tires, there is no tire size for farmall cub down here. I found the rear ones luckily.
Here are some pictures of the tractor, i have been off for ten days, probably this weekend i will work some more!

Re: Cub from Argentina "updates"

Hello people, its been a while since last post. I started the university semester so i don't have much time to work in the Farmall Cub.
Yesterday my uncle came from Nebraska and brought me some parts (TOB with roller bearing, TOB yoke release , yoke pivot pin, free gas cap, light seals)
i wonder how do i assemble the TOB yoke release because the old one was welded and i guess it is assemble with a bolt right? if some body has a picture would be very nice.

The free gas cap and the light seals, I can't believe how good is the service in the States, here in Argentina when you buy something, warranty never works at all, never, and they send me a gas cap for a 50 years old tractor :)
Image
new TOB and yoke.
Image
How i do assemble this parts together? the old TOB was a bearing to, brand was NICE Bearing, and it has two small springs that hold the bearing plate to the yoke pivot pin, this springs do the function to place the TOB always facing the clutch fingers, but the new TOB does not has two small holes to put the little springs. Need some info with that.. because without those springs the Bearing will touch the fingers most of the time..
Image
Thanks!

Nicolas, I've never seen a TOB bearing like that. The two holes in the yoke seen in the last pic, the front has a nut and bolt to hold it together, the rear has a pin that holds the rod going to the clutch pedal.
Did you get the bumper spring as well for the governor?

Me either.

In you last picture, of the throw out bearing, the thicker/wider portion of the carbon goes toward the pressure plate fingers, the front of the tractor.

Edit: The IH throw out bearings have a solid interior and a grease zerk. The throw out bearing is greased with cheap grease. I don't see any way that this bearing could be greased.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thank you Raymond for the spring, i got it! i didn't install it yet.
One more question about the TOB, i guess the two small springs in the old tob where for holding the bearing to avoid the contact between the shaft and the bearing, how the new one is hold so it won't touch the main shaft, because it look like it will spin a little toward the clutch when the clutch is disengage. i just don't know how it works....
Thank you!

Eugene a good way to grease the bearing when you want to be sure that it won't brake because a lack of grease. Is to use a small metal can or old pot and put a small quantity of bearing grease, as much as the bearing height, and warm it up till is very liquid, then soak up the bearing for half an hour.. a lot of grease will get in and when the grease get cold the density will be as regular grease again..

There should be no springs in there. They were probably added by a previous owner for some reason. Just like you have it in the photo, with the exception of the missing bolt and nut, is how it is installed. Be sure to report back on the operation and reliability of the TOB and your source. It's not the usual replacement thats available here.
Glad you got the bumper spring! I'm sure you'll put it to good use! :D

Hello again, have been some time but i still keep working to have the Cub finish.
I have some pictures to show you (one picture is better than words some times)
I installed the Engine and the front axle already! look very good. Had some trouble to put the shaft in the engine thru the clutch, i had no alignment tool, so i used my eyesight :).

Taking the front tires for assembly
Image

The touch control ready and with a coat of primer
Image

This is a mod for the TOB, otherwise like there was nothing to hold in place the bearing i thought it will no work properly
Image
Image
Image

Some progress shown here
Image

I did restore the old gauge, i want to keep as more original parts as i can, i will post later the final look of the gauge :D
Image

painting the needle
Image
Image

Clear coat of the background, is has a lot of cracks and wears but it gives a look of the real age of the tractor (61 years)
