Why does this always happen to me? And It Runs!

Postby Barnyard » Thu Sep 27, 2012 9:37 pm

It seems I can't go anywhere these days with out some homeless pest trying to get me for a free ride. Here I am, trying to enjoy my retirement and wanting to get some rest after my simple eye surgery by attending Cubarama. All of a sudden there is a lonesome Cub looking for a ride east.

It looked like it was in dire need of some loving so me being the soft touch decided to give it a home.
Image

Rolling wasn't one of it's better qualities for obvious reasons.
Image

With the help of Mike Mueller, Jim Becker (hidden in pic and I don't blame him) and some fella named Bob Katt we swapped on some new shoes.
Image

The little fella looks a little happier now that he is more mobile.
Image

Mike Mueller and I share a laugh when I found out you need to know where tires are laying when you back up a trailer.
Once that tire attached itself to my trailer tire it didn't want to come off no matter which way I went. We finally got
that Bob Katt fella to pick up the back of the trailer to help get the Cub tire from under the trailer.
Image

Jim Becker shows everybody the catch of the day. It looks like this one layed at the bottom of the ocean for a while.
Image

I want to offer a big thanks to Jim, Mike, the bobcat operator and the other unknown fellas that helped me get the tires swapped. We are already having fun at Cubarama and they are calling for great weather this weekend.

Gee, arrived on Jim's trailer, and left on Barnyards. Who'd a thunk it.

I gave the seller what he wanted for it which was just over scrap price. He told me about several guys who offered him $100.00. He said he would scrap it before he sold it for that, but he wanted to avoid that if at all possible. His grandfather bought it 30 years ago and he was hoping to see it stay together if possible. I told him if there was any hope for it I would not disassemble it, but I couldn't promise that it wouldn't used as a donor for other Cubs. He said he was okay with that.

Bob Perry wrote:Nice ! Was it "Running great when it was parked" ?

Actually, it may have been. The kid said his grandfather mainly used it to move things around. He said they just parked it and never used it again about 15 years ago. It turns over well with a battery and seems to have good compression. Once I get time to tinker with it I will see what I have. I am almost tempted to leave it on the trailer and haul it to Stonethrow for a project. :lol:

Good save Barnyard; It looks a lot like the one that I hauled in last. If it can't be saved as a runner then it will have a lot of good parts!

That's funny. We have a similar yellow low-boy that "was running when it was parked" 16 years ago. It was similar condition, lots of rust and rotten tires. Back in April we put some gas in it and it fired up and ran good. Since then I cleaned up the rust, painted it, and swapped out tires. Current plan is to throw all the pieces on the trailer and work on it it at CubFest NorthEast.

Well Bob, I don't know about that for sure, but it sure runs now.

A great find. That's exactly what I hope to find here in s. ga. My 66 cub needs so many parts a parts cub is the most economical way to go. I need fenders, lights, governor linkage, hydraulic block, choke rod, floor pan, battery box, you get the picture.

Bill, looks like this one gets marked off the organ donor list.

At the end of the video you'll see what happens when the camera man is looking in the viewfinder then suddenly thinks a run-away tractor is heading for him.

But it sure was good to see a Cub running so smooth, after sitting outside for 15 years.

We have a nearly identical low-boy that also sat outside in Maine for 15 years. Bought it last October. It was about the same condition with rust and all its joints seized up, but after a few shots of Liquid Wrench and a good wire-brushing and a few cans of paint, we should get it back together next Saturday at CubFest Northeast.

I'm still laughing at the look on your face when you thought I was about to take you out. :lol: You did a great job of hanging onto the camera as you were stumbling around. Sorry for the scare though. :oops:

Wow I sure am glad to se my old Cub is getting taken care of. It has found it new, better home. I would have liked to fix it but I don't know very much about them and I didn't want to mess it up so I figured I will sell it but I was getting some low offers that were less than scrap price.
