Jackman,
I quite agree, The CUBS are, in nearly all senses, very very well designed, very inovative for their time if you compare it with another tractor of the age such as an Allis B

BUT, honestly to put the handle just under the feet where the operating lever for the beaver bagger normally goes is just crass design stupidity, ah well, suppose nothing is actually perfect,

Hey Jackman...Even though your idea makes sense 8) ...IH intended to have the crank mounted just the way it's shown in the photos :wink: . You'll git used ta restin' your foot on the handle as you're drivin' along SCOOPIN' UP THOSE PESKY BEAVERS IN YOUR "BEAVER BAGGER" :lol: (That IS ifin' you're LUCKY enough to ever FIND ONE!) :wink: .

That position still just did not make sense to me so I looked thru my 56 Lo-boy owners manuel (reprint) and it shows the the crank handle mounted opposit from the pic posted with the part that you actually grab going up and over the pto lever. I would have thought that it would be flat on the floor plan and going around the battery box, I tried it that way and it fits perfect... I dont have a scanner to post a pic, but the IH manuel # is CR818E maybe someone else can post. Perhaps with the optional Beaver bagger attachment things where differant and as stated the crank was also a rest place for weary feet :) as we can just imagine a full day of beaver bagging can make a man real tired :lol:....

Well Jackman...It's really called a "Possum Poke" :lol: not so much a "Beaver Bagger" :wink: (although I suppoz y'all could scoop up beavers as well as possum. :? ..Just the beavers are usually WET & in the water :shock: ...making it nearly impossible to "bag" with a Cub :shock: (unless ya git the optional IH Cub 4-wheeled beaver-bagger floatation pontoons...sold by IH for only 3 months July, Aug & Sept. 1952!!! :wink: )

CR818E sounds like an advertising brochure from 1955. If that is all you have, you should get an Owner's Manual.

I don't know for sure but I think a long time ago I threw out those clips. My tractor never had a crank since I've owned it and I would never have quessed it was stowed under your feet anyway. So not knowing what those pesky clips were for I took them off and tossed them. Go Fiqure!!

Hey Jackman...You can get the Cub operator's manual & parts manual and a service manual from Binder Books (binderbooks.com) :D . Those 3 manuals will answer nearly all of your questions (LOT'S OF PHOTOS TOO) :wink: !
