1956 Cub Lo-Boy

Postby l8tbrker » Mon May 11, 2009 4:43 pm

I have a Small Problem......The Carb on my Cub Lo-Boy Is a: IH 25123R94.....The Pickup inside the bowl was broken.....

Went to a show and bought the exact "looking" carb ($45) and the number on it is IH364579R9....Was wondering if this carb will work or if it wont......

Also would like to know what carbs were put on what year cubs as I have several and would like to keep the right carb with the right year of tractor......

Any Help would be appreciated

That should work. Looks like the part number for the one on the tractor was superseded by the number on the one you bought. The parts manual shows a further supersession number as shown in the parts manual at the top of the right hand column below Image
Rudy will be along soon with the "official" welcome wagon, but until he gets here, WELCOME to the best forum on the web. Rudi is also the hardworking genius that put the manual server together. You can find the owners, parts, and implement manuals either by clicking on the "manuals" button at the upper right, or going to http://www.cleancomputes.com/cub.
Any other questions, just ask. We love to help.

If the broken part is # 10 on the parts diagram (idle tube), those can be replaced. Worst case is that it needs to be drilled out and helicoiled, best case is that it can be unscrewed, maybe chased, and a new one installed. Keep the old carb, and take it to the nearest Cubfest for repair if you don't want to tackle it yourself.

ITake a little one hour trip south on 31 in september to Tipton Indiana and meet up with some really great folks.

If you really want to have fun sooner, spend the weekend about 3 hours away in Grand Rapids Ohio in about 4 weeks for CubFest.
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.

Would your local CaseIH Dealer be able to get the part for you? Most assuredly, provided your counter person is good, knowledgeable about older tractors, cares about being able to get the part to you, and of course actually has it in stock which is highly unlikely. This would then require probably a substantial wait, as it gets expensive having to get the Dealer to Special Order the part. I have found that there is really only one CaseIH Dealer to which I would turn to for hard to get parts, and they are in Wisconsin.

However, Tom and Lynn as Donny mentioned who are site sponsors as well, offer the idle tube at a rather reasonable cost and they ship quickly. You will not only be amazed but truly taken with their service.

Also as has been mentioned, here is the Welcome Wagon. Do spend the time to read it, it will be worth your while. It answers many of the common questions and does provide a ton of information.

First, Image to the greatest forum on the internet, and to the Cub Family. You will find that all the folks on this forum are kind, helpful and just full of Cub info and knowledge. They also happen to be the finest folks I have ever met :!: :D

The Welcome Wagon is a relatively brief introduction to the information that is currently available on Cub tractors, and answers many of the common questions new members ask right of the bat. Although it is a bit overwhelming :shock: , it has been designed to actually be copied to a Word Processor such as Microsoft Word (which preserves the active links), and saved to your desktop for easy reference at a later date or when you have a bit more time to read all the information contained in the links below. Please do so, enjoy and I hope this will be a useful aid in learning more about your New Cub Tractor :!: :D

Filling out your Image Profile is a real help. It just needs to be - State,City, County, a lot less than what is available in your local phone book. Knowing where you are will help in members offering to come help, when you are looking for parts - the area that would be useful to you etc., Also our CubFests, Mini-Fests or a simple KaffeeKlatsch/get together over coffee and a doughnut etc., to help each other benefits. Just a thought :!:

When adding signature lines to your profile, the use of animated or non-animated banners and large graphics files must be avoided. These files consume large amounts of bandwidth and cause slow page loading, especially for those forum members using dialup connections.

Ok, so here is the spiel Image:

I would suggest that you read this thread: New Members and Visitors, Please READ Prior to Posting. There are many great links to informative pages such as the ATIS FAQ's 1 and ATIS FAQ's 2, The Best of H.L. Chauvin who has written very interesting articles on troubleshooting common problems with your Cub. One of the other projects we have been working on and it will be a continuing effort is the The Cub Book of Knowledge. This the the place to go to get all the quick links to some very good articles written by many members of the forum on solving some of the problems we encounter as we repair, maintain and up-grade our Cubs. Keep looking for this to grow.

Also, you might want to visit the Cub Manual Server as there is tons of info on servicing, maintaining and re-building your Cub. In addition to this basic information, there are also a number of other useful tools available on the server. There is the Specialty Services page which has contact info for neat stuff like getting your seats recovered, buying quality Decals, Serial Number tags and a host of other neat items. Also there are the Parts Pages - both Used Parts Suppliers and New Parts Suppliers pages with links to quality dealers. I am always looking for YOUR favourite dealers for New and Used Parts to include here. These pages are intended to complement our Official FarmallCub.com Website Sponsors:I would also recommend that you visit Binder Books and purchase the three most important manuals you can own for Maintenance, Repair and Rebuilding your Cub. These are the Owner's Manual, the GSS-1411 Service Manual and the TC-37F Parts Manual. Although they are available on the Cub Manual Server, it is better if you also have your own paper copy. Binder Books is the only Authorized IH Publication Reprint House and they have the best quality manuals available. Most other's are not of the same quality. Just a personal thought here, the I&T Shop Manuals, although helpful in some areas, really are not sufficient for the job. If you wish though, they are good additional reference works.

IF you really want to get the skinny on all things Cub, might I suggest you get a copy of Ken Updike's Farmall Cub and Cub Cadet's :?: . While you are at it Original Farmall Cub and Cub Cadet is Ken's latest addition to the series. Along with Guy Fay's Letter Series Originality Guide, these are three must have's in anyone's collection.

In addition to the above information, don't forget to check out the various articles that are available to help with your Repair, Restore, Rebuild or just your Maintenance Projects. There are a number of sub pages such as Electrolysis or Rust Zapper's, Maintenance Tips, Jigs and Techniques, Implement and Part Sketches and of course the Paint, Decals & Other Finish Questions which has the Paint Chart and the Paint Committee Decisions links.

Oh, and while the program still lasts.. you might want to check the Announcement: Navistar Free Gas Cap Offer - On-Line Form thread at the top of the Cub Forum and send away for the new style safety cap before that program runs out as well. The program has been extended and no new definite end-date has been announced at this point. It is an extension only and may end rather quickly depending on available stocks. Please do take advantage of this offer and get the new safety caps :idea: :!:

I truly hope that you enjoy your Cub and that you will be a frequent contributor to the forum. Again, Image to the Cub FamilyImage :D
