Thank you for allowing me to join this group.

My Dad, Lee Petrie (member on this forum) passed away last December. He has a Cub that he has been restoring that still needs some work (inoperative clutch) and implements and parts that I am sure I will be consulting the knowledge of this group to identify.

Welcome! I'm glad to hear you are working on your dad's cub.
Hopefully, you will feel close to your dad as you bring his cub back to life.

Welcome to the Forum! Our sympathies to you and your family at the passing of Lee.

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Don't know what manuals you inherited with your Cub, but after your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum:

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here:

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see them.

• When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
• Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
• When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

Welcome to the forum, Tad. As you work on the Cub, I'm sure that you will have many fond memories of your dad.

Welcome to the forum, even if it is only for a short time while you get your Dad's things in order. My condolences on the loss of your father.
Over the years we exchanged a few emails and messages as we both have 1957 Cubs.
