Hey Guys,

Hope you don't mind. I have been lurking in the background since about summer of 2006 viewing and reading your site. I have just regestered today, 4/8/2007. I have gained a lot of information from all of you and it has been very useful. I bought a 1949 Cub (early style) in October of 2006 (my first tractor ever). I have it currently in about 100 pieces putting in new seals, parts, used parts, and getting it ready for paint. My wife sees all the parts hanging on the garage wall and says she hopes I can remember where all the parts go. I will continue to gather information from this site and all of you if you don't mind. Thank all of you for the silent help you have given me so far.

JimT :)

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Thanks guys. No I plan on keeping mine and going to some tractor shows with a friend of mine (even though he has a green one).

Looking forward to using this site for years to come.

Welcome to the forum! Once you get your Cub finished, let your friend drive it, you might be able to bring your friend over to the red side. :lol: 8)

Jim:

First, Image to the greatest forum on the internet, and to the Cub Family. You will find that all the folks on this forum are kind, helpful and just full of Cub info and knowledge. They also happen to be the finest folks I have ever met :!: :D

Since you have been lurking for awhile, you have probably seen the Welcome Wagon more than once, but then you also know that Every New Member gets his or her own individual Welcome Wagon as soon as I see a new member log in. "So this one is for you Bud :!: " :wink: :lol: :lol: Sorry, I couldn't resist that one - just way too easy... :shock: :roll: 8) 8) :lol: :lol:

Glad that you have come in from the weeds, and that you have your very own Cub to boot. Many of us have friends with green things.. hey, some of us even have em ourselves and have been photographed riding Green... but iron is iron although a Cub is Special Iron.. :!:

Please do post often, let us know how goes the restore, playing etc., with your Cub. Use her often, user her well and above all just have tons of fun playing with Your Cub..

Cheers :!:

Ok, so here is the spiel Image:

I would suggest that you read this thread: New Members and Visitors, Please READ Prior to Posting. There are many great links to informative pages such as the ATIS FAQ's 1 and ATIS FAQ's 2, The Best of H.L. Chauvin who has written very interesting articles on troubleshooting common problems with your Cub. One of the other projects we have been working on and it will be a continuing effort is the How To Article Archive. This the the place to go to get all the quick links to some very good articles written by many members of the forum on solving some of the problems we encounter as we repair, maintain and up-grade our Cubs. Keep looking for this to grow.


Also, you might want to visit the Cub Manual Server as there is tons of info on servicing, maintaining and re-building your Cub. In addition to this basic information, there are also a number of other useful tools available on the server. There is the Specialty Services page which has contact info for neat stuff like getting your seats recovered, buying quality Decals, Serial Number tags and a host of other neat items. Also there are the Parts Pages - both Used Parts Suppliers and New Parts Suppliers pages with links to quality dealers. I am always looking for YOUR favourite dealers for New and Used Parts to include here. These pages are intended to complement our Official FarmallCub.com Website Sponsors:

I would also recommend that you visit Binder Books and purchase the three most important manuals you can own for Maintenance, Repair and Rebuilding your Cub. These are the Owner's Manual, the GSS-1411 Service Manual and the TC-37F Parts Manual. Although they are available on the Cub Manual Server, it is better is you also have your own paper copy. Binder Books is the only Authorized IH Publication Reprint House and they have the best quality manuals available. Most other's are not of the same quality. Just a personal thought here, the I&T Shop Manuals, although helpful in some areas, really are not sufficient for the job. If you wish though, they are good additional reference works.

IF you really want to get the skinny on all things Cub, might I suggest you get a copy of Ken Updike's Farmall Cub and Cub Cadet's :?: . While you are at it Original Farmall Cub and Cub Cadet is Ken's latest addition to the series. Along with Guy Fay's Letter Series Originality Guide, these are three must have's in anyone's collection.

In addition to the above information, don't forget to check out the various articles that are available to help with your Repair, Restore, Rebuild or just your Maintenance Projects. There are a number of sub pages such as Electrolysis or Rust Zapper's, Maintenance Tips, Jigs and Techniques, Implement and Part Sketches and of course the Paint, Decals & Other Finish Questions which has the Paint Chart and the Paint Committee Decisions links.

Oh, and while the program still lasts.. you might want to check the Announcement: Navistar Free Gas Cap Offer - On-Line Form thread at the top of the Cub Forum and send away for the new style safety cap before that program runs out as well.

I truly hope that you enjoy your Cub and that you will be a frequent contributor to the forum. Again, Image to the Cub FamilyImage :D

Welcome aboard Jim, glad to have you. Let us know if we can be of any more help.

I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Thanks guys. Had to go eat Easter lunch with my mother and family. I am from Santa Fe, TN. It's about 40 miles south of Nashville, TN. Look forward to getting your advise on things, and maybe someday I will be able to return the favor.
