Loboy CUB

Postby LEBeinhaur » Tue Sep 21, 2004 9:38 am

I have recently acquired a 1955 Lo-boy.
On the hood has silver letering that says International Cub.
On top of that there are two holes like something else should be there.
Possibly McCormick or Farmall.
Anybody know what should be there?

The only emblems you need for your '55 lo-boy are the two that read "International Cub" for each side of the hood, the two that read "Lo-Boy" for each downleg, and a metal "IH" for the front. 8)

Those are the access holes for oiling the generator.

55 lo-boy

Postby LEBeinhaur » Tue Sep 21, 2004 10:45 am

Thanks guys,
I was really puzzled on the holes, So there is no decal above the International Cub wording at all, correct?

anyone have a picture of a 55 loy boy that can help in the restoration efforts? i really enjoy this little tractor. I acquired it at an auction for 1,000 and it purrs like a kitten when it's running.
I also got the fast hitch, a WOODS mower, a disk harrow, a plow and tire chains with it. pretty good deal I think!

Thanks for your help

Sounds like a pretty good deal. If you go back to the home page of this site and click on the photo albums and then lo-boy, there are some pictures there.

BigDog,
On the lowboys there is another set of holes above the emblem, it is where the McCormick emblem would be on a regular Cub.
These hole are a little small and low to oil the generator. :-)
The lowboys and Cubs used the same hoods depending on the exhaust.

emblems

Postby LEBeinhaur » Wed Sep 22, 2004 6:07 pm

SO, what should be there above the words International Cub.
I felt in back of the holes and they are definetly for some type of wording to mount to .
Was the 55 manufactured by Mccormick or Farmall?
I agree the holes are too low for the generator and they are symetrical on boths sides, Definetly for wording of some kind.

Nothing. They are empty holes. The tractor was manufactured by International Harvester.

Yes, nothing goes in those holes on a LoBoy. You can fill them in if you want.

If you want to talk about mysterious holes, talk about the ones on my '67. They're in random places all over the hood, and many of them are filled with short screws.

I only know about one lo-boy... the one that lives here. It doesn't have extra holes above the emblems.

Yes, but is it a '55-'58?

The '55-'58 Farmall Cubs had a McCormick emblem above the "Farmall Cub" if I'm not mistaken, just like the big 300-450 Farmalls.

It's a '58 Lo-Boy. It has the oval Cub Lo-Boy emblem on the dogleg, and no extra holes.

My '57 F-Cub has the McCormick emblem you mention.

Saw 2 of them with the extra holes today.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Oval lo-boy emblem? I thought the '55-'58 had a square lo-boy emblem on the dogleg. '59-'63 had an oval dogleg emblem like the 460-560 tractors.

Anyway, I'm just saying that extra holes would make sense because the Farmalls had a McCormick emblem above the "Farmall Cub" emblem on the sides of the hood, and most of the parts were shared between both models.
