Greetings at long last from Central MN

Postby BenjaMINN. » Wed Oct 13, 2021 7:50 pm

Hello All,
I joined this site more than five years ago with the best intentions of posting about my two Cubs and other tractors/equipment, but never quite found the time to do so. Nonetheless, this site has been an invaluable resource for all of my questions over the past few years. I guess all of my problems had already been asked about and answered by others, so I never had a need to ask new questions. Now, having finally finished restoring my 1947 cub and sickle mower (after something like 16 years in the shop), I've decided it's a good time to finally introduce myself (and show off my Cubs)! I will start threads for each of my tractor projects in due time, but in the meantime here are some before and after photos.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Welcome back to the Forum, BenjaMINN! Nice '47 Cub! Is it a low serial number?

Don't know if you got the "full meal deal" back then, but take some time now and read through a few threads to reacquaint yourself with the Forum:

After you’ve logged your 2nd post, 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. Implement Manuals are also available.

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

We would ask that 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.

Thanks for sharing the info again...probably good to review all that stuff from time to time anyways!

I wouldn't say my '47 Cub has a terribly low serial number (#5727), and some of the casting codes are from September of that year, so I'd say it is a late 1947 model.

It's still early enough to have an engine block susceptible to cracking on the right front ear, though. Of course, I noticed such a crack developing there only while painting it this summer. Doesn't look like it's leaking any oil yet, so I'm not too worried. A while back I saw that someone on this forum was selling a brace for the engine block to prevent further cracking. I tried to find the website where those were sold but it looked abandoned. Any idea where I might still find such a brace?
Thanks!
