Hello from Pilot Mountain, NC

Postby cook50_03 » Tue Apr 21, 2015 2:14 pm

Hello all. I have recently acquired my Great Grandfather's 1951 Farmall Cub. It sat without running for over 10 years, and didn't run very well when it was parked. Anyway, I am in the process of restoring it to at least usable condition, but hopefully one day will have it "parade ready", not that I would actually put it in a parade though. Anyway, I have browsed this forum before as I have now gotten the tractor up to running condition and even mowed my yard with it. I look forward to being here.

Thanks!
Tyler

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on getting your g-grandfather's Cub. Family Cubs with a past are special. Glad to hear you got it running.

Lots of info on this site and very helpful people. Please download and read the manuals available thru the above links. That may answer many of your questions, but if not, by all means, ask. Post them over in the Farmall Cub sub-forum.

Again, welcome!

Welcome to the forum from Arkansas. Congrats on getting your grandfathers cub. My dad had cubs but my grandfather still used mules. You've found a good place to spend some time and also a good place to post a few pictures of the cub.

Welcome from Chapel Hill...there are quite a few of us NC-ers here!!! Almost as many as Ohio! Speaking of which, there are a couple Cub Fests coming up in Ohio: Barnyard's Bash and the Cub Tug. I strongly urge you to try to attend one of these...folks come from all over to do anything "Cub" (and sometimes non-Cub stuff, too!), such as rear engine seal replacement, brake replacement, general tune-up, and carb repair. You can get some hands on experience helping others or bring something of your own to get help with. Plus there is great food and plenty of tales to be told!!

Here's a link from the BOARD INDEX above:

I am planning on have what we call a Mini-Fest here in Chapel Hill to work on several things, and you are welcome to join me! Will be posting a date as soon as I get my act together!!!

Again, WELCOME and spend some (LOTS of!) time strolling through the links above...quite a bit of good information.
