Farmall 140

Sat Jul 21, 2012 5:05 pm

Hi everyone from OH. I just found this site and thought I'd give it a try, though I don't know what I'm doing, having little experience. I recently got the Farmall 140 in IN. The sn is 16297 J . I think its a 1961. I got it running a day or 2 ago. Could anyone tell me if this tractor is the same as a IH Cub ? I live near Vandalia, OH, near Dayton.
Thanks for your help.

Nope a Cub and a 140 are two completely different tractors. First the Cub is the smallest of the Letter Series tractors and there really wasn't a successor to the Cub. The IH 140 is essentially a Numbered Series upgraded tractor that would be related to the Letter Series Super C (ooops :oops: A).

Image to :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!.

Hey Plow, I'm just up the road between Sidney and Piqua. The 140 is a very nice size tractor. It's lineage started with the Farmall A then progressed to the Super A, the 100, the 130 and then the 140. It's equivalent to a Cub on steroids. Check this link: ... r-140.html
