Nuther Is It???

From what I have seen in pics and other Cubs my (48) hydraulic tank looks odd, besides it has rubber pressure hoses.


Anybody familiar with this set-up?.

PICS.

That looks like a good idea. A oil tank with a electric hydraulic pump like on a pickup Tommy Lift tailgate lift. I have a setup like that to tilt my tandem axle Cub hauler. Send more pictures. How are the cylinders riged up to move the rockshaft?

JB, is your cub still on 6 volts? I would think a 6 volt pump like that would be rare. Or might it have had a seperate battery. I can see Jim's wheels going round now. :D

:?: I thought it was a pump too but there is no wires going to it. On the one end it has a lever for the hand control rod. :roll:

I see a shinny rod coming out the front of what I thought was a oil reservoir. Is the original Cub pump hooked up in any way?

Jim, What you see as a shine`y rod is the wire harness going to the battery. The square box under what you thought was an electric pump is the reservoir/tank. It has (1)-Ram on the right side of the tractor. I will take more pics tomorrow when its light out of the ram setup. What you see is all thats there and if that aint a Cub pump then????.


Yes John*?-lJ, (Hard to remember yer title without pastin it.) It is a 48 with 6-volt system.

What Jim and I thought was a pump, I assume is a control valve. I see 2 hoses coming out the left side and apparently going forward. do they go to an original type hydralic pump at the left front corner of the engine?

Yup John, The 2 hoses go to the pump picture you posted. That control sure does look like a motor though. Had me fooled.

This pic shows how the Ram is set-up.

:P I guess so B.D. _ The guy or previous owers did a lot of good things beside weird things to it though like I see it has a brand new radiator and ss/steel bolts mounting it. The guy I bought it from must have spent "BIG" bucks on it though because his wife said he didn`t know what end of a wrench to use after you told him what a wrench was. I paid $500 for it and it cost me an extra $18 to get it running.
