New Member and want to know if all implements are really Cub

Sat Apr 21, 2007 4:23 pm

I recently had a friend give me a 1951 Cub. The engine is frozen so I assume I will need all of the assistance I can get. I also think it will be fun to get this little gem running again. I have known about the Farmall Cub and now I own one This tractor came with a trailer load of implements and I would like to know which ones actually go with the tractor. The tractor came with the factory belly mower, black land plow, sandy land plow, planter, two different sizes of cultivator plows, two different sizes of sickle mower, two different sizes of discs, two sizes of harrows and some type of blade. I live in a subrub of Dallas, TX and can be contacted via email at

I look forward to meeting new friends
Paul :)

Do you have the capability to post photos of your new Cub and all of the implements? That will surely help in identifying them. The Cubfest Photo Host is a good place to place your photos on the internet. The following link explains how to do it.

Depending on which suburb, I might come take a look.

This coming weekend I will take some photographs of what I have and will post them. I live in Midlothian, Texas. My cell number is 214-676-0447.

Congrats on finding the greatest cub site on the planet. You will find more than enough info on any project big or small here. Don't be afraid to ask. Enjoy

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

You may find the All About Posts and Forum Questions Section of the [url=]How To Work on Your Cub - Maintenance Tips and Techniques
[/url] articles to be of help here in posting the pics. You may also want to have a look at the Cub Implement Owners's Manuals on the server. They can help you figure out what you have and if they are really for the Cub. You can do that by visual clues as well as the part numbers that are usually included in these small manuals. There are also the CBI series of Parts Catalogs in the Cub Parts Manuals on the server as well.

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 [url=]How To Work on Your Cub - Maintenance Tips and Techniques
[/url], 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 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 Paul, you have found the right place for answers. The guys here have helped me greatly, lots of info here to read and I am certain that some won't be found any where else. Good luck with you cub!

THanks for the information. I have been reading many of the various postings and find the information very interesting. I have not figured out how to post photographs. Normally I do not have a problem with this but, who knows. I will keep trying. I am not retired and therefore, continue to work. Our consulting firm has several projects around the country and that keeps me running and we are going on to be gone for the month of June and part of July. Therefore, you will not hear from me until the middle of July. I will be in touch when I return.

Welcome aboard!! You'll get the pic posting figured out with the help of Bigdog and Rudi, I know!!! This seems to cause the most problems for new folks coming into the forum, did for me at least. But like all other topics, there is always someone more than willing to help :D .Pete

Glad to have another Texan around!! :wink:

I'm about 60 miles NW of Houston. Been through Midlothian many times passing through to Fort Worth. As others have said, you'll find most everything you need to know right here.
