I don't even have a C and I watched all of the first video. I really like the guy's approach and calm manner!! Someone needs to get him to do a similar series with the cub...a complete, concise, edited video series.
Maybe there already is one...?

His videos are very good. He did a no-bolt-untouched restoration video series on a Farmall MD last year.

Been watching Pete for some time now; especially this year through chemo. Most of his vids are just life around the farm, but, I think, excels more doing tractor restorations.

I watched the MD last winter; good. He’s got a barn with several Farmall tractors. I usually see an A with front blade in the background. Can’t remember if he’s got a Cub or not.

A few vids back, he was disappointed with the machine shop he used for the MD, so he sought out Dave Richards (Old Time Steam Powered Machine shop on YouTube). It was fun watching Dave work on Pete’s engine. Think it’s episode #81, starts work about the 25 min mark.

My wife and I have been watching Just a Few Acres Farm for years. I have learned tons from his rebuilds, sickle explanation and and some of the loader modifications and installs he has done. He doesn't have a cub and his A was redone before he started YouTube.

Was watching Old Steam Powered Machine Shop, episode #82. He has some more video of rebuilding Pete’s connecting rods at the 26:12 point. :coffee:

He has a Cub with a stuck engine stashed in the shed. He shows some of his tractors in this video.

I’ve been watching for about three years now. Pete is a retired architect that is living his dream! I’m hoping he restores his Cub next.

Maybe someone could let him know that we would be following if he did do the cub! :{_}:

Wow, this is great stuff. I went through the same process a couple of years ago and wish I'd taken the time to do a video, and wish I'd seen this before I started mine! Lots of mis steps.
