Hello all. I’m a proud new owner of a 1951 super a I’m planning to use to work my garden. I’m from Mississippi and have been into tractors my whole life! Currently I show 2 Massey’s and have a total of 5 tractors. And if your wondering yes the boss kicked me out of the house when I bought the super a, so now I reside in the shed with the tractors. :help:

Welcome to the Forum!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Don't know if you have any manuals for your Super A, but now that you’ve logged your 2nd post, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals we have available. They are located via "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals". Through that link, you'll be able to download any manuals that interest you.

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

Take some pictures of your tractors and post them, we’d like to see them. Remember, when you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum and use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like.

Glad you joined us.

First welcome to the forum!
You need to gently introduce your wife to the SA then clean it up some. Your timing is close enough that you can claim it was your plan to get it presentable enough to give it to her for Valentines Day ;) . After that you’ll restore it up pretty so she can share in the hobby and tractor shows.
Might be a little sneaky but it is basically what you had in mind anyway right? :lol:

Thanks for all the welcomes to the forum! I will take a few pictures of it tomorrow! I’ve already learned a lot on here about the tractor that I didn’t know and probably never would have known so thank you all for all the resources and info!!! Hopefully I won’t have too many questions to ask. Haha

I know you own a Super A, but there is the Deep South Cubfest in Sneads, FL, next week, and it would be a great opportunity for you AND your wife to meet some of the fine folks who are Farmall enthusiasts. Many folks own tractors other than Cubs, some even admit to having GREEN tractors!!! :lol:
http://www.dscubfest.com

The ladies (other than I!) hang together, and seem to have a good time and are NOT stuck with doing meals! The guys take care of most of that. Many folks bring tractors or components to work on, others just come to either learn or share their expertise and talents. I drive from NC, so you are much closer. It's worth it!
If that's not doable, there is one a bit later in Louisiana:

Maybe we will see you at a cubfest in the near future!! :hattip:

Hello, I'm from southern California and I just picked up a 1960 Farmall Cub. This is my first tractor and due to heavy rain lately the entrance to our ranch has been extremely muddy. I've already begun to somewhat level between our date trees and made a new road for us to come in and out of. I figure in the summer time I can also tow our water bull w the Cub and irrigate the soft sand around the ranch and compact it some to keep the dust from flying everywhere. I'm looking forward to learning tips, tricks and whatever else I can from y'all. What led me to purchase this tractor over a new one or other brands was the design of the Farmall, its classic/antique look, the red color and its compact size. :tractor:

I've got a question, my block casting number shows 6*28*C but my Serial number shows 217364. From my understanding my serial number states that I've got myself a 1960 Cub and the gentleman I picked it up from thought it was a '61 but the casting number dictates 1957, how do I know which year it is for sure? Could it be that this engine sat somewhere for 3 years before mating w this tractor or possibly engine swap during the restoration? I'd like to know for certain the year for ordering parts. Thank y'all in advance for the help
