Awesome thanks - I'll make sure it gets back on there. I would imagine it had a grommet in it - your thoughts?
No grommet. Also, note that it is quite thin, not very strong. That was so that if an implement broke away (like a plow hitting a rock), it would tear this part rather than yanking the seat off. You see a lot of these that have torn through on one side, usually on bigger tractors that were used with trailer plows etc. We usually used a piece of baling wire to hold the rope, same reason.
I have never seen a gromet in one. Cotton rope was cheap. You could always get some off Momma's clothes line.

When I was about 12 years. We had a Oliver 88 tractor. With a 3 bottom plow you tied baling twine to the handle on the plow and the other end to the seat. When you got to the other end of the field. You would pull on the twine and the wheels would pick up the plow. The twine kept breaking so I got a brainy idea. I put a steel cable thru the handle and seat with U clamps. At 12 I thought I was so smart. Till I hit a rock in the field and the plows came lose from the back of the tractor and tore the seat of the tractor. My father told me you broke it ,you fix it. I welded the seat back on,but it wasn't very smooth. So every pair of pants my father had a hole in the seat.
Made a post over in the Farmall Forum on this topic. You all might be interested. Did not see a way to share just that post here. I've quoted it.
A warning about using baler twine for the plow trip. My son was plowing with the 2-14 No. 8 and caught a root just as he was raising the plows. Somehow the twine wrapped around his index finger and being sharp textured, it de-gloved his finger at the first knuckle. He said the worst part was trying to explain a break-away plow to the ER doc. We laugh about it now, but not when it happened. John
Hi All - I know a lot of you use Photo Bucket, but I'm a Google User. I wanted to some photos with you all. I don't have a very big shop - it's just a single stall garage, but it's orderly, especially my toolbox. Our farm is a couple of miles away and we've got no good place to work there that's heated - besides here I can sneak out during my work day ( I work from home) and do a few quick things....
Thanks to all of you for your help - Enjoy The Pix. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you next weekend at Cecil's
Ken: Checked out your photos. Looking good. Appears you have enough room and equipment to handle the Cub.
I can't say that. I have tools and equipment strung out in 3 or 4 buildings in the county. Also have a nice shop on an acreage for tractor repair/maintenance, about 6 miles from the house. No heat in shop which limits winter time activity. Also have to cross two low water crossings. When we get 3/4" of rain, no access to the acreage shop.
I have an excuse. CRS.
I am looking forward to seeing the progress and finished product. Thanks for sharing the photos!!

Looking forward to seeing Rau-1 in the fall. Enjoyed the pics
You definately have a project going there. With that amount of disassembly it should be a beautiful Cub when finished. I'm looking foreward to seeing the finished product.
