Me too...if it was the mains, it woulda just locked up. Also, I would have thought main bearing noise would have been much lower-pitched, or even a knock rather than screeching and squaling....keeping my fingers crossed though! :mrgreen:

Raymond, we're gonna you guys this year!

Corky
I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!

Phil,
I'm sure someone will be avalible to get that done.
Can you help me out with 2 touch control rebuilds that will need some guidance and assistance?

Thanks
Ron
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

I have a change in projects. I will still bring the mag to repair the case but the Cub won't be along. Since I will be getting home from Cubarama with two Cubs, there is no reason to unload and reload. I will be bringing my newest Loboy to see if a Cub that ran when parked fifteen years ago will start will start. I have a feeling this will be an easy one.

Also, Harley has developed a charging problem that will need to be traced.
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.

Neither of the two Cubs I'm bringing would start last week, so I may need some help turning on the gas :roll:

My '77 cub, was hard starting all thru the year, it has been turned up, but died on me a couple weeks ago, new coil, points finished & set, still no go,
it's a push & pull model right now, I bringing her in to Stonethrow, also would need the brakes fixed (no left) and the ole Zenith carb could be a problem.
You guys are the greatest on these ole cubs. See you on Friday.
Dean, the lo-boy throwed a generator belt, staying in the shed, for fall project.

I will throw a brake and drum into the truck to make sure we have what you need.
