What a great day! I have to say, on the way up to Zagray, I kina felt like I would be the "outsider" being very new at the Cub game. I was welcomed with open arms by everyone! My hat is off to Cecil & Peter who were the first to roll up their sleeves & get going on my Cub which hasn't run in at least 20 years. A quick once over & I had a list & was on my way to NAPA (only 3 miles away). I met Bigdog & the ever enthusiastic ConnecticutKIT and BlackJeep. Again, all great guys!!
In no time, we had the '59 tuned up. Wait till you see the pictures of the points :shock: The carb was a bit of a nightmare inside. We did the best with what we had & put it back on. I happend to forget to bring my new sediment bowl for the new tank (the pictures of the old one are quite, ummm, interesting :lol: :shock: ). No matter what we tried, the old carb refused to work properly. Everyone got cleaned up & we tried to call it a day but every time I walked by my '59, Cecil would ask "what are you looking at? Lets get her going! We must have cleaned up 3 or 4 times. After one more clean up, Cecil got frustrated. We borrowed the bowl from the "power project" & he yanked the carb off his Cub. SHAZAM!!!!!! She purrs like a kitten after sitting 20 or so years! What a fantastic sound after sitting idle for so long! It was a little smoky at first but it was probably from all the Kroil going down the hatch when the engine was stuck. We started it again after 10-15 minutes & there was little smoke. Still some kroil I suspect & perhaps the rings will loosten up a bit.
See you tomorrow!!!!

I just got back home from Zagray farm and I'd like to thank everyone involved for a great Cubfest. My first ever and I wish I had more time to spend. Again it was great and many thanks from me.

I was there on Friday and met CTDave, Cecil, Kit, Peter and what a great bunch to talk with even though i only own a Int 154 right now, after all we all share the same interests.

Any updates on the cub power supply? Is it running or doing ok?

I'm sorry i missed saturday and maybe sunday too at the fest and it looks like you guys are still having a blast too.

I was hoping the cubfest would draw a crowd too with the spring startup at the farm. I been hoping to hear rumors of a fall cubfest at the farm too maybe a fall cubfest/october fest?? Or should i say october feast for the cubfest guys? If they do a fall cubfest i'd bring all my cub cadets/cub toys for sure. Its slowly turning into my little tonka construction company. Maybe my jeep tractor will show up too who knows. She's a heavy one but i can trailer it.

Trust me from what i seen and who i met already there's a great group of cub guys here in the east too. They made me feel really welcome too.
BigBill

PS; That "IH" on the cub power supply frame that me and Kit fabricated says it all. That is farmall red paint i got from TSC too, after all its farmall red when no other red will do..........
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
