Thanks for trying to put this together, we recently bought a 50' cub and have been poking about the sight to get ours going for the spring. Looks like we still have a ways to go still ;) we've at least got it starting/running reliably!

Thanks for those who have worked on this thread over the years. I used it last weekend to "bring back" a '55 that spent the 2000s and most of the 2010s in a pine grove in Maine under a tarp. Blessedly, very little water in it, but still lots to do!

It's mentioned here, but I was quite surprised (and a little late) to find no oil pressure on first start up. Priming was easy (thanks to this forum) and it's all great now, but I'd definitely put it higher on the list given the importance. Change oil/no change oil, if it isn't pumping, it's a problem.

Something to add to the steering box section is to check the fill plug to make sure the vent holes are open and not plugged with grease and dirt. (Holes are straight up from bottom of plug and straight in from side on one of the wrench flats) A small drill bit works good to clean them out. (This will prevent pressure build up inside steering box that pushes lube out of the seals)
