To cold to work on the Cubs, so I'll work on a Super A

Postby Paul Van Benschoten » Thu Feb 11, 2016 6:43 pm

I don't have a heated garage to work in, so when the temperature gets down to 20 F, I look for some place warm to work.

I have brought wooden kayaks into the house to work on, but there is no way I'm going to be allowed to bring in a greasy tractor.

Fortunately, this Super A is quite clean and in small pieces which makes it easy to bring in the house.

Been a while since I visited the shop. No heat in the shop and to darn cold. Hopefully next week, the day time temperatures are suppose to be in the 60's.

I have a heated shop in the house basement. Overhauled small engines, wood working, and other small tasks there in winters. There is no way to get anything larger than 30 or so inches wide in the basement due to the off set from the exterior door and the limestone house foundation.

My cold weather projects this winter are working on and refinishing an antique oak dresser for my daughter and sealing/painting the basement walls.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Approximately 35 years ago I bought my first cub. it had been owned by a man with Alzheimer's, and everything on it needed repair. It was late fall and I tore it down into pieces I could carry, brought it into my walk-in basement, and spent the winter going over everything. It had been painted to sell, but nothing on it worked, generator, magneto, starter, brakes, etc. I even ended up replacing engine as it was too far gone to bore. about the only thing I did not have to repair was transmission and finals, and they needed seals. In the spring I carried it back outside and put it together, and it started and ran on the first try, which really surprised me since it was the first cub I ever saw. LOL.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
