49 Cub running again!

I bought this little Cub for fun about a year and a half ago from a volunteer sheriff deputy who said it was donated to them and it didn't work. He said they needed money more than a broke tractor so $600 later I had it in my shop. After putting what appear to be original looking IH plug wires back on the cap she fired right up. So there she sat again for the last year until last weekend when I decided to get her going with a carb kit, new plugs, a battery and fixed the timing. Now she runs great! The only reason I bought this thing is because my grandfathers great uncle is said to be Cyrus McCormick. I have always loved these old tractors since I was a kid and now I finally have one of my own.

Welcome to the forum, I live about 45 miles from where the reaper was built, the farm is now a museum and is owned by Virginia Tech and is open to the public .

Thanks! That would be a great place to visit. Maybe someday I'll make it out there.
