New to Farmall Cubs

Postby Cloudy_Cowboy » Wed Oct 19, 2016 9:59 am

Hi My name is Justin Butler and I recently was given a 1948 Farmall Cub with the small 6 plow implements. It is in great condition for its age. It is missing some of the attachments for making the two rear plows move up and down with the front attachments. I am new to this tractor and I don't know that names for all the parts yet. I was wondering if anyone had any good pictures of the setup for the linkages from the from hydraulics to the back pivot points. Mine implements are in pieces and I want to get them in working order. Also I would like to find a swinging draw arm that I can attach a ball to. If anyone knows where to direct me I would greatly appreciate it. I am in Southern Maryland.

Thanks and I'm greatful to be apart of your community.

It sounds like you are describing a Cub-144 cultivator. I suggest you look on the TM Tractor Parts web site (link below) and look at the implement hookups in the picture gallery. Here is short cut Click on the cultivator links at the bottom of the page.

You may find it helpful to look at some of the other implement pictures. Look at the Cub-193 plow for a better picture of the rear rockshaft, which may be what your question is about.

Justin, Welcome to the Forum. In addition to what Jim said, in the tool bar above you can download owner, service, parts, and implement manuals by clicking on PDF Manuals. The how to forum also has good information on some of the more common maintenance/repairs required by Cubs. I'd suggest placing a "wanted" in the Vine forum for the swinging drawbar.
