When you do move it, don't pull it by the front axle. If pulling from the front, run a chain under the tractor and attach to the drawbar.

Ronny, he should have one, as he had a bunch of repro cranks made up recently. BTW, you can only start your Cub without a battery if it has a magneto. Can't do it with a battery ignition distributor. Don't remember what yours has.

P.S. The night before you trailer the Cub to the car wash, spray all the nasty, greasy, grimy areas with Purple Power. It works wonders. :D

He's good to go without a battery, Don! Here is what he has on the side of his tractor:

Ronny,
Here's a pic of the 6' x 12' dual axle Uhaul trailer that works great. $30 per day. It has surge brakes and a 4-pin connector. It's a heavy beast too.
Just bring some car ramps or planks with you to get the Cub onto the trailer.

That looks perfect. It even has room to spare.
I don't have a trailer brake setup, so with the surge brakes it's as if I special ordered one.
Until recently, my days off from work were during the week. Now that I have most of the weekends off, we might be able to git er done.

Another benefit is that my neighbor (retired mechanic) could come over and give me advice on the spot.
I bet this project would really move along then.

Oh Jim - about not pulling it by the front axle. That was one of the first things my neighbor told me about it.

Pressure washers can put water where you don't want it! Be careful around mated surfaces (with or without gasket) and anything electrical. (Don't ask) I like to spray with Varsol or something simular before using strong degreaser. They work together to remove gunk, and won't "burn" the paint as bad. Some degreasers can really do a number on paint. Also pressure washer can destroy a radiator.

Ronny:

Ralph has had about 2 dozen hand cranks made up in the last little while. If you call him in the morning, he probably could get one out in the mail by late afternoon or next day. Ralph is really top notch with shipping That way you would have if for your next trip up to Madisonville. :idea: :idea: Sometimes, a few bucks extra saves a lot of irritation. And when you do find the original, well you can clean it up and sort of have an extra or just something from the family as a keepsake in the shop :idea: :!:

Is there a good time to call Ralph? I've tried for the last three days and all I get is an answering machine.
I work nights and sleep days, so if he calls back I might not get to the phone.
I just sent an email, so hopefully I'll be hearing from him soon.

PM's is a great way to get hold of him. A lot of the time he doesn't get to the shop until after 4;00 PM due to his day job.

Try calling in the evening around 4 or 5. Amost anytime on a Saturday should work.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Crank is on the way

Postby Ronny Bailey » Fri Nov 14, 2008 3:07 pm

Ralph called and a new crank is on it's way.
A very nice fellow, just as I expected.
Thanks to all of you who steered me in his direction. :)
