Older tractors usually have had several owners. You will probably never know the history of the Cub.

Cub parts are/were frequently replaced when worn out or damaged.

I wouldn't be concerned that parts were not original to the tractor when It came off the assembly line.
I have an excuse. CRS.

....I was told some time ago that IH factory, on request, painted pre '64 Cubs yellow when special ordered by State, county, or Municipalities....I don't know that to be fact, but I've seen yellow round hood Cubs that were used to mow roadsides and parks, etc. in Texas back in the 50s and 60s.... In fact, I own one that was owned by the county I live in and it has since been painted over to red, but the yellow shows through where scraped or worn.

That might explain the yellow bolster/1949 serial # that is on my later model Cub....can only guess at this point.

Thanks to all who contributed to my post...

By the way, I put new plugs, repaired some starter wires, topped up the Hyd. unit with oil, cleaned the carb and put new float needle and it starts immediately and purrs.... :tractor: :D
