This is a common question that many who want to buy their first Cub ask. It is a difficult topic to search as well, because the search string is not simple, it can be as varied as our members.. so very difficult to search.

Thoughts, ideas AND PICTURES of what you are meaning.. like George's Cracked block pic... George :?: :?: :?: I am looking, but help..

That is the defacto starting point.. but I was hoping for more...

Even with links pointing to the Cub FAQ's, there are still tons of questions on buying a Cub... as evidenced by this mornings posts.....

Maybe I am making work for myself, but hopefully we can condense some of this stuff into one how to that will cover most of the pitfalls... Jim has an excellent section, but there are always additional questions....

Am I re-inventing the Model T ????
