Hi, new owner in NJ

Postby Hoyt-Clagwell » Mon Jun 10, 2013 9:51 pm

Hi, my name is Dan and I found my cub on Craigslist last fall and I'm finally finding some time to work on it. I'm having a great time working on this thing. Complete tune up, changed all the fluids and greased every fitting I could find (even that one hidden up under the clutch access cover). Runs good now and hope to cut some grass with it and haul logs, debris etc.. With an eye toward total restoration at some point. I don't know why but I feel good having rescued an old tractor, kinda like bringing a mut home from the kennel.

This forum has been a great resource so far. Thanks for all the help.

Dan, welcome to the group. As you have already found out, this is the #1 place to get top notch Cub answers. Enjoy your Cub.

Hey, welcome to the forum. So....... did you find the oiling point for the fan hub and the generator yet? :D If not, browse in New Manuals above and look for a pdf of the owners manual. Have fun!
