Don't forget to prime the oil pump before you try to run her. Several posts on how to do it...or just ask! Looks like a nice one! Bring her to Boss' on the 30th!!

Nice looking Cub! Welcome to the forum.

I would be very careful going any distance with that trailer with your Cub on it. It has a 1,625lb payload capacity. A bare Cub weighs about 1,300lbs, plus 300lbs for the rear weights so you are right at capacity. Without brakes and being a single axle you may find yourself in a precarious situation someday.

Yep. I will be be removing the weights at some point and will keep them off when trailering. I was very pleased at how it drove/pulled through driving rain for two hours home. Just kept my speed no faster than 60 mph and began braking well in advance.

I started a new thread on this Cub in the main Cub forum. No fire right now. :(
