Longstripe questions?

Postby staninlowerAL » Sun Feb 01, 2015 5:34 pm

I'm looking at a yellow/white longstripe and need some education: It has sat out and unprotected for a long time, gas tank is 1/2 full of water, engine unknown condition, deluxe seat frame is usable, Tin in poor condition but salvagable except for dash, has a repairable Woods 48 belly mower complete, needs tires all around, rebuild or replace tie rods, this is all just visual inspection. The SN tag is missing but torque tube has a casting code looks like 1-21-S. I'm considering offering a scrap metal price based on weight. Any thoughts or suggestion? :?:

With an "S" code on the torque tube, it is most likely a 1971 and not a "long stripe". Long stripes started in 1975. Given the condition you described, my advice would be to keep looking.

I agree with Don, however, if you want a parts Cub you could offer him scrap price and keep what is good and scrap what isn't.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Depends on how much time and money you want to spend, repairing it. "If it casts a shadow, it's restorable". I've repaired some pretty pathetic ones. It's a challenge! Became my alternate therapy, when I got rid of the animals!

Barnyard did you hear that. In MHO if it is scrap price you can't go wrong.

So what do I look for to determine if a Cub is a "longstripe"? "Inquiring minds want to know.

Stan, a 1975 or newer is considered a longstripe.

Factory alt, the top water neck will have the alt mounted to it [ special bracket ] Zenith carb, with larger manifold [ manifold will mate to the carb, with no part of carb overhanging ]. there will be a hose going from the carb to the breather instead of a pipe. The handle for the touch control will be stamped steel much like the throttle handle.
That should hold you until you can check the #s
I want say I am an expert on the longstripes, but I will say I have owned more of them than the average cub owner :lol: :lol:

OK, thanks Guys. Sounds like the "longstripe guru" Boss Hog has the answers. 8) :D I'm waiting for the owner to tell me what he wants to do. I may be able to wrangle a early 154 in with this. If I get them and can't repair/restore them there's lots of parts. BTW, what is the interchange for the FCub head to a 154? Stan

From your description in would be on the way to Jakin if I could get it and the Woods mower for 300 or less. I am a 300 dollar man.

Let us know what happens.

Could be a pig in a polk or a worthwhile project. I am partial to that vintage Cub.

One Boss missed is key start. That and lack of VR are the two quick ways to ID one, along with the Zenith and rubber air intake. Rare.

Local guy put a long stripe sticker on all his Cubs, just liked it better.

I noticed the key start, alternator, Zenith carb while looking. I'll check for the rubber air intake and better casting code info, (if I can make a deal with the owner).

key start started in 1972 so that tells nothing about a longstripe :D

Longstripe also has a clutch safety switch so you have to depress it to start it
