Postby Jdbfish » Tue Feb 26, 2013 12:52 am

Tore down and put new seals and gaskets in the final drives this weekend. Was. A lot of work! Next will be rebuilding the touch control, then reassemble the front and back half, touch up the paint, get the motor cranked, and...... Still a lot of work ahead but it's coming together!

Thanks Brian, the kids, mainly daughter have worked very hard on this. As you know, I am handicapped so I can't do much. Almost everything has been done by them ( my wife to!) with my direction. With that being said, it's a miracle we got this far with me doing the guiding!!!!!! I want to thank everyone who has donated nd helped us here so far:Tim (Tst), Brian (cubguy47), dale shaw and mrs dale! Hopefully I did not leave anyone out! Thank for all the guidance thus far,you folks are great!!!!

Really inspriational project you and your daughter took on. Gives me a little extra effort to get my Cub that is in 500 pieces put back together! Great job and are there any loose ends that you need to acquire for it??

Thanks everyone. My daughter and her buds are very proud of their work. You can see it in their faces and I am proud of them. We still need a muffler, muffle clamp, a good choke and starter rod, and a good throttle rod. Ours are bent up, welded, etc and look pretty bad probably a common issue n cubs. Considered making some but don't really know how I would make the bends where the finger pulls are. Also gonna need a step for it.
We are also in the market for a cheap fast hitch. Our next project is going to be the restoration f some cub implements that belonged to my uncle as well and would like to be able to hook them up. Also wanting to figure out a way to set up a ball hitch that you can lift up and down with the hydraulics so I can move trailers around without having. To get off the tractor to hook them up! Any ideas?

IF you get the fast hitch there is a ball adaptor for it, sometimes pricey, maybe not so easy to find, but they show up on ebay sometimes.

Yeah...upwards of 90 bucks. Used to be before everyone got greedy you could get one for a honest $25. Last one I bought was $30 in Rehoboth Massachusetts at a swap meet at Francis Farm. AND the seller knew what he had!

Here's a hitch mount...pretty worn out and they still want a hundred bucks plus shipping, sleazy.

A couple of more pics for you all. We still need to finish the hood but don't think we will make it by this weekend for the Canton cubfest. We are planning on coming either way, with or without a hood. Looking forward to it.!
