I am not sure what a Long Bang Forble really is or why anyone would want to build one aside from the fact that the challenge is there - which is a good a reason as any. This is one interesting critter. :D When you first posted about this I was basically in the dark, still am on the technicals, but it is a very nice looking conversion. Was this built from a parts Cub/Cubs :?:

How is the engine different from a normal cub engine exactly?

Josh,
When he first posted about this a while ago, he was planning to cut the crank shaft and re-align so two sets of two pistons were hitting at the same time. Along the same lines, the cam shaft has to be cut and turned, so the intake and exhaust valves on two cylinders are working the same. He has gotten away from a distributer, and has two sets of points, so he can send fire to two cylinders at the same time. In essence, he's taken a 4-cylinder engine and turned it into a 2-cylinder engine.

There was truely no reason to make it other than it seemed like a good idea at the time. Started planning in 1990's but was working on a dozer cub conversion 2 years ago and hit a major block with that project so I decided the tricycle cub would fill in a few months of spare time. Actually took 2 years.

It looks much better in the photos than in real life. I am just a hack at welding, body work, painting but get better with each project.
I could and should have spent much more time on the body work but after 2 years I admit to just being tired of looking at it sitting on my only concrete slab. The sound of the engine did work out better than expected but I only have a recording on a cell phone which is some strange format that will not upload.

I only have a covered area for 2 tractors, a 154 and an Allis Chalmer C. I took the bale of straw off the AC tractor hood and moved it under the trees. The tricycle cub now has that spot of honor. Put the bale of straw on its hood. Can't let that straw get wet.

Landreo, any chance we could talk you into attending the Stonethrow Cubfest in Gilsville, GA the first weekend in October, and bringing the long bang forble tricycle cub for us to admire?

Looks like you are about 3 hours from there. :big afro:

Sure hope you have a waterproof tree to park it under. Would be a shame to let such a nice looker to get wet and rust up. Thanks for sharing, my Dad used to get started on a dollar project sometimes and end up with fifty dollars of work in it and always, like you, seem to enjoy making the "impossible part".

I may be working that weekend but if not I will try to make it to the fest. I am planning on bringing the tractor to the show in Denver, NC in late OCT.

Why would you need to modify the crankshaft? There are already 2 cylinders at TDC at any one time 1 & 4 or 2 & 3.
