Disable Vet who may need some help

Postby David Stanton » Wed Jan 30, 2013 6:15 am

:lost: Morning Guys
Bought a 49 cub a couple of years ago ; And done a lot of work on it replacing belts , Plugs & points wires ; Oils , New Carb , Front tires and simple things ; Great day when I got it to fire up the first time :D Being a city boy and all ; Since that day I have rebuilt the starter & Gen ; but I did not jump the wire right between the gen and Voltage reg and it burned up the points ( doing that time a uncle junked my hand crank ) Knowing what it was and made about .15 on it MAYBE LOL ; And doing the time it was running ( Like a new one I might add ) I must have hit something going threw the bushes here on my mini farm ; Now the right wheel is turned inward . I loosing all the bolts and sprayed 40 on the tie rod assm ; however could not get anything to move ; nothing looked bent ; So i think it just knocked in a tie rod end or something . Since it did not run at the time because of the points ; and I had no crank to install the new one's it has sat under a tree for the last 1.5 years . In the meantime I have bought a new crank , Points ; And plan it put it back together now . I'm a disable vet on social security ; So the dollars are tight on a fixed income . I also have emphysema & C.O.P.D ; and that tiller doe's me in pretty quick . The wife is now planting seeds in the house to get ready for spring ; and we also need to plant as much food as we can due to the way things are now . So my plan's are to plow up as much land as I can . Anyway I may be needing a little help here to get the cub right again ; May have some questions from time to time on the cub . Many thanks looking foreward to talking with ya'll

49 cub would originally had pointed setscrews holding the steering knuckle to the shaft. Most likely the one pointing inward has broken or been replaced with a different type. Usually not too hard to remove the setscrew and work the knuckle arm off the spindle, then use a small punch through the hole on the backside of the shaft and tap the broken point out, then install new setscrew.

It's a conical shaped set screw holding the steering knuckle to the shaft. Removal and replacement is as John stated.

My Cub, the cone shaped hole in the spindle has been wallowed out some what. I carry an adjustable (Crescent) wrench in the tool box to periodically tighten up the set screw.
I have an excuse. CRS.

David:

G'day to you and congrats :applause: on getting the '49 having the desire to play with it and learn to farm a bit. Follow the links below - all the information you need is available in the Owner's Manual, Parts Catalog and the Service Manuals. That will give you some visual help as well.

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!.

I am also a disabled vet on a very fixed income so I do understand the need for frugality. Been 20 years - raised a family as a disabled vet. I now have COPD and PF along with many other issues, so I can really identify with the ease at which you get tuckered out. There are days sometimes weeks that I just cannot get motivated to do much and when I do it takes next to no exertion to put me back down on the chair or back in bed. A pushem snowblower, lawnmower or tiller just isn't in the cards arnymore for me. That is one of the reasons why I build stuff for Ellie my '48.

Oh. WD-40 is not a really good penetrating oil - in fact it is not a penetrating oil at all - it is a water displacement fluid and is great for those purposes. To loosen up stuff suggest you use a proper penetrating oil such as Solvo-Rust, PB Blaster, Nut Busster, Kroil etc., They are far better at that job.

You will have lots of help from our members here, and I am sure that there are a number close to you in North Carolina. Check out our CubFest and Gatherings Calendar 2013 and if you can, make plans to attend a CubFest close to you. It is time and resources well spent and you will enjoy yourself as well as make friends
