Can anyone tell me if the snow plow and mounting hardware from a Cub will fit the A Model?

Thanks very much

You could probably make one fit with a little fabrication, but they will not direclty interchange. The A is quite a bit heavier, and the blade needs to be proportion lay heavier. Also the blade for Super A is wider.

Another note, the A doesn't have hydrlaics. Have to have super A for the hydlaics.

The information you provided makes sense. I thought that might be the case but best to check.
Thanks very much for your insight.

tractarz:

I will add the Welcome Wagon in a minute.. but if you go the the Cub Manual Server's main page, and scroll down to Other International Harvester McCormick-Deering Farmall Tractors, you will see what information on the A - B and Super A/AV that I have. It should help you out a bit. As for putting Cub equipment on an A.. well that would be one heck of a waste.... if you need implements and attachments... please do try to locate actual A stuff.. far too much has already been lost for both tractor groups, to make a big dent in the available stockpile. I am sure you would be better off selling the Cub equipment and then buying the correct A stuff..

Anyways.. just my 2 cents worth on that.. I do hope the link helps you out some..

First, Image to the greatest forum on the internet, and to the Cub Family. You will find that all the folks on this forum are kind, helpful and just full of Cub info and knowledge. They also happen to be the finest folks I have ever met :!: :D

Ok, so here is the spiel Image:

I would suggest that you read this thread: New Members and Visitors, Please READ Prior to Posting. There are many great links to informative pages such as the ATIS FAQ's 1 and ATIS FAQ's 2, The Best of H.L. Chauvin who has written very interesting articles on troubleshooting common problems with your Cub.

Also, you might want to visit the Cub Manual Server as there is tons of info on servicing, maintaining and re-building your Cub. In addition to this basic information, there are also a number of other useful tools available on the server. There is the Specialty Services page which has contact info for neat stuff like getting your seats recovered, buying quality Decals, Serial Number tags and a host of other neat items. Also there are the Parts Pages - both Used Parts Suppliers and New Parts Suppliers pages with links to quality dealers. I am always looking for YOUR favourite dealers for New and Used Parts to include here. These pages are intended to complement our Official FarmallCub.com Website Sponsors:

I would also recommend that you visit Binder Books and purchase the three most important manuals you can own for Maintenance, Repair and Rebuilding your Cub. These are the Owner's Manual, the GSS-1411 Service Manual and the TC-37F Parts Manual. Although they are available on the Cub Manual Server, it is better is you also have your own paper copy. Binder Books is the only Authorized IH Publication Reprint House and they have the best quality manuals available. Most other's are not of the same quality. Just a personal thought here, the I&T Shop Manuals, although helpful in some areas, really are not sufficient for the job. If you wish though, they are good additional reference works.

IF you really want to get the skinny on all things Cub, might I suggest you get a copy of Ken Updike's Farmall Cub and Cub Cadet's :?: . While you are at it Original Farmall Cub and Cub Cadet is Ken's latest addition to the series. Along with Guy Fay's Letter Series Originality Guide, these are three must have's in anyone's collection.

In addition to the above information, don't forget to check out the various articles that are available to help with your Repair, Restore, Rebuild or just your Maintenance Projects. There are a number of sub pages such as Electrolysis or Rust Zapper's, Maintenance Tips, Jigs and Techniques, Implement and Part Sketches and of course the Paint, Decals & Other Finish Questions which has the Paint Chart and the Paint Committee Decisions links.

Oh, and while the program still lasts.. you might want to check the Announcement: Navistar Free Gas Cap Offer - On-Line Form thread at the top of the Cub Forum and send away for the new style safety cap before that program runs out as well.

I truly hope that you enjoy your Cub and that you will be a frequent contributor to the forum. Again, Image to the Cub FamilyImage :D

It would be much easier to go the other way because of the difference in the frame width. I have a Super A blade mounted on a Cub and it wasn't hard to do.

In the photo you can see the difference in width.

hanks everyone for your help. I'll try to find the correct equipment rather than ruin something that someone else can use.
