Hello from Central GA

Postby Wes » Sat Oct 13, 2012 10:41 am

My name is Wes and I am the proud new owner of a 1952 Cub with a 60in Servis BM60 belly mower. This forum has been a life saver over the past few weeks. I purchased a non-runner that the engine had just become stuck. I was under the impression that It would be a mild restore job that I could finish before grass season 2013. But this has turned into a full rebuild. The engine has bad valve seats and has revealed cracking in the lower right corner. I have big job ahead of me, But am proud to do it. I will post some pictures soon.
Thank you to everyone for providing all of the information on this site to make projects like this possible
Wes

Welcome to the forum Wes. You'll have fun working on your Cub and you will have plenty of good help right here if you have any questions.
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.

Hello Wes,
I have not been a member very long, but would like to say welcome. I just got the engine on a 53 cub back together (my first) after it had been stuck. The manuals at top of page are great. If you need help someone here will be glad to point you in the right direction.

Wes:

G'day to you and congrats :applause: on acquiring your very 1st new to you Cub :{_}: You might find them pretty addictive and hard to limit to just one. Like Berlin said, a few days late -- on Saturday we were deep into projects at CubFest Northeast including Berlin's engine braces.

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!.
