What to Look For When Buying a Cub

Postby Rudi » Mon Dec 11, 2006 12:20 pm

Guys:

Suggestions please on what we can do to build a How To Go Buy a Cub How To..

This is a common question that many who want to buy their first Cub ask. It is a difficult topic to search as well, because the search string is not simple, it can be as varied as our members.. so very difficult to search.

Thoughts, ideas AND PICTURES of what you are meaning.. like George's Cracked block pic... George :?: :?: :?: I am looking, but help..

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

BD:

That is the defacto starting point.. but I was hoping for more...

Even with links pointing to the Cub FAQ's, there are still tons of questions on buying a Cub... as evidenced by this mornings posts.....

Maybe I am making work for myself, but hopefully we can condense some of this stuff into one how to that will cover most of the pitfalls... Jim has an excellent section, but there are always additional questions....

Am I re-inventing the Model T ????

The photos and some of the critical comments concerning this thread might make a pretty good start.

Some of the guys on this board buy and part out Cubs on a regular basis. Suggest getting close up photos of common and less common tell tail signs of problems and problem areas.
