new here and a short introduction

Mon Jun 10, 2013 10:04 pm

I live in washington, have a few small tractors listed in my profile. I like any color as long as its small. just purchased a standard cub lowboy 1965 with a fast hitch that uses a c2 rear mower and a rear grading blade. I was thinking might have paid to much but after learning more I think 500 was ok. It has a tranny howl and skips gears under load so working on removing tranny to have a look. The danco mower has bent slip tube on pto shaft and that will be next project.
looking forward to learning from all the members, see you soon.

Welcome to the forum! Any Loboy that runs, even without a mower, fast hitch or blade, is well worth $500.00.

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like a great bargain and you're off on a good start. Home built backhoe huh. Interesting.

Welcome :big afro:
Might want to take a look at the transmission shift forks and the shifter regarding the slipping out of gear. There are some good How To's on this topic.

I will get some pics up soon. I did not explain well about skipping gears, does not pop out of gear it skips gear tooth but remains in gear, take the load off tractor and regains movement. I read that it could be final drive on tranny but I'm not familiar with cub arangement. I would like to stop that howl too if possible.

I just was not sure how much I would need to invest to get it to operational standards. If you compair a cub to new lawn tractors the cub wins hands down. I got those bolts loose and am checking all bolts before disassembly. easier to clean up when tractor can be moved. I found the manuals and still learning this site.
Thank You all
