New member from Idaho

Postby whitelightning99 » Fri Sep 11, 2020 11:47 am

Just purchased a '48 Cub from a wonderful gentleman from Connell, Washington. He had almost finished restoring it, but allowed me to purchase it to put my own mark on it. So far, that includes an alternator conversion, some paint refinishing and wiring updates, Motor seems to run fine,, but has a leaky carb. Winters are long in north Idaho, so now I have something to occupy my time.

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 of the manuals to your Cub, but after your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service 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

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum, including carb repair. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see it.

Remember:
• When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
• Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
• When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

Welcome to the Forum. When you open the carb, pull the halves straight apart or you'll break off the idle tube. Needle valve and seat may need to be cleaned along with float adjustment.

And, just 'cause I can't pass up a good deal, I also purchased an "A" from the same guy. He even delivered it yesterday. Now I have a sorta matching pair of Farmalls!
