Steps to Start a Neglected Cub

Postby Our Pass Thyme » Fri Apr 22, 2022 6:19 am

I made a video while attempting to start my cub that has been sitting for two years. How can I call myself a cubber??? Well I have been running another cub with a Wagner Bucket to the exclusion of my first cub and time just got by me. Now I intend to put a mid mount plow on the first cub so in this video I try to get her running.... https://youtu.be/ODgiP6NuoKo

Probably should prime the oil pump on one that's been sitting for years, at least check oil pressure seconds after starting and shut it off immediately if it doesn't register.

Check & Check! definitely, as well as keeping an ear out for any abnormal ticking or rapping engine sounds....
