1957 Cub Update

Postby fordhead1983 » Fri Mar 24, 2017 10:29 am

Ever since I bought my Cub back in '15 (viewtopic.php?f=14&t=90922&p=719732#p719732), it's been a long drawn out garage project much to my wife's dismay. Well I finally got it out of the garage. Only problem is it wasn't under it's own power. I gave up. I thought I had it rebuilt well enough to get one of the techs at work to finish up a few small things. I discovered that it's like that Billy Currington song says, "Don't have a knack for makin' motors crank, but I'm pretty good a drinking beer." Turns out we're gonna have to bore it out from .030 to .040. I know the bill on this one is gonna be big, but at this point I've lost all patience for it and letting one of our shop guys finish it for me. Fortunately planting season is coming up so I'll get some overtime, and we're running it under our lawn and garden shop rate, so that will be a bit cheaper. After this, I'm going back to fixing antique implements (plows, disks, planters, etc...).
