I've got the starter out of the 57 that I can bring along. If I get a chance I will rebuild one of the mags I have and bring that with me also.

Is the hood for the power unit the same as for a Cub tractor only without the gas tank portion?
If so, Dave-on your '59 were you doing a whole new hood or cutting off the tank and replacing it, salvaging the front half?
You know where I'm going with this, right?
Don, Thanks for your input. BlackJeep, can you work with Art to get the parts so they will be there?
Cecil-THANKS!
BigBill, work with either BlackJeep or Artc or maybe someone else on the forum has built a stand. You could post the question as a separate thread.
All you other CT Cubbers (as well as anyone else who wants to come), don't feel as though you are being left out. By all means step up with your thoughts and contribute to the 1st ConnectiCubFest.
Thanks,
Peter

Cecil, as usual I appreciate your (and everyones) help!!
Is there a need for my air compressor & air tools? I'll have a regular tool box along but if anyone needs air, I'd be happy to bring it (just needs 110 volts).
As far as the 59, the head is off and after the kroil treatment in the troublesom cylinder. The engine is loose and turns freely. One valve is hanging up but I can tap it down. I think a cleaning with something good will get rid of the gunk hanging it up. I have a new tank/hood as the old one was rotted out. I also have a new fuel bowl and fuel line. I checked under the cap & find where the points are to be in very nice shape. No corrosion. As far as I can see, everything else looks good. The inside of the starter looks perfect. I have not yet checked the radiator for leaks. There doesn't seem to be any corrosion around the base but I'll get some anti freeze & check it out. I don't want to put water in as it's 40 right now but going down to 12 tomorrow.
I need to order right away so I have on hand:
Head gasket set.
Carb rebuild kit.
Battery.
Ignition switch.
I'm not going to worry about all the cosmetic stuff for now. I can do that. I'm just grateful that you guys with all the knowledge are willing to help out!!!!!
Is there anything else you think I might need? I will bring a fist full of money so anything you supply, I will pay for. I'm not shy about shoving money into someones pocket. Come to think of it, How about I sponsor a breakfast or lunch (how many are expected :shock: :lol: )
Please let me know what else I could possibly need.
Thanks again!!
Dave

Dave,
I think Saturday breakfast & dinner are covered, at least I've not heard that spaceghost can't do the dinner and Stick the breakfast. Lunch is going to be catch-as-catch can either brown bag or onsite vendors.

What I would like to see come out of the work on your '59 is a good opportunity for all of us to learn hands on how to maintain our Cubs as well as the more common repairs, etc. With all of the different fluids, lube points, etc. that a Cub has, it can be pretty daunting to read through the maintenance section of the owners manual.

Bring the air-can't hurt and if it's not there and you need it :oops:

All we need now is good weather! 8)

Thanks Peter! Being a new cub fanatic, I'm looking forward to learning. I started reading the maual about the simple thing like lube points :shock: Holy christmas, it's never ending. It make me realize that taking my 48 for lots of rides means I need to start taking care of her too.

OOOooo! I just thought of something. On my '48, there are 8 bolts which at some point were cut off. They are the ones for the impliment mounts on both sides of the bell housing and just to the rear of the bell housing. There is not enough exposed to get a vice grip on them. Should I buy some "easy-outs"or will someone have them there? If I should buy them, what size would work best? Someone mentioned a left handed drill bit would do it but I'm thinking easy outs would be my best bet.

Dave,
Are you sure they are the cut ends of bolts or corks :oops:

Dave,

"Easy-outs" wouldn't be a solution, but a problem. That's if, instead of the original cork what you have turns out to be real metal. Sorry, I couldn't resist. :D :D :D

Easy-outs is a misnomer. They are a real troublemaker. :( :( :( They should be avoided at all costs. :D

Peter, all I can say is I think I should have been riding the short bus to school. The cork I removed from the bottle a little while ago is an exact match for the "cut off bolts" :oops: :oops: :lol:
I thought to myself a few minutes ago "it can't possibly be that easy" so I went & got my center punch & Wow............I didn't need a hammer. Your right! Cork..............
Scrub the easy out idea :oops:
Ya learn something new every day! I feel like a dumbass :oops:

CTDave, Just think of all those nice clean threaded holes you have waiting there. Waiting for you to hang something off them with some new implement bolts! If you feel the need to drill out some broken bolts, I'll send you a final drive I have that has a few "problem bolts".
