Safety First

Postby AccMan » Thu Apr 20, 2017 8:59 pm

Thanks to this forum I may have avoided getting hurt. I just acquired a 49 cub, with all bad rubber. I was going to stick it on jackstands to remove all 4 wheels and take them to have the tires replaced. In my research I discovered the need to wedge the front axle to prevent tip over. Thank you for sharing your knowledge as flipping that cub would sure be a poor start to what I hope is going to be fun.

You sure wouldn't want this.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Also be careful if you are on a side of a hill, keep engine on up side. If you are not comfortable it probably is not safe.

Yep, this really made me think about the offset. Thankfully it is relatively flat where most of my use will be.

If you do have to run across a lot of hills, setting your wheel spacing wider will help a lot.
