The bolster on my f-cub was cracked when I got it years ago I welded it and has been fine. I found a good bolster about an hour drive from here for sale cheep. I just thought it would be nice to have on the shelf if I ever wanted to change it. My f-cub is a 1947 are all the years the same? How would I tell if its for a standard or for a lowboy? THANKS Dan

Look at the casting #'s and then check the TC-37 series Parts Catalogs .. 350 886 R21 in 1949. Then check the the casting codes - casting date codes on TM Tractor's web site.

Dan, a Loboy and FCub use the same bolster. They are also the same for all the years.
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.

Not a deal breaker, but check for broken off screws for the doglegs...they can be a tad difficult to get out .

If the price is right, may be better than leaving the money in the bank.
