Resto kickoff

Postby Ace562 » Tue Sep 29, 2020 8:04 am

Found this forum, hoping to lean on it for this restoration. I’m new to the Farmall Cub world, but I’ve lived and worked on the farm all my life. No stranger to fixing things up! However some of the details I’ll be wanting help with will be more specific to finding year appropriate replacements or as close to OEM as possible. My wife’s great grandfather bought this tractor and it’s my hope that our son or daughter 2/4yo will enjoy this family heirloom. I’m brand new to this forum so until I figure out how to post pics the details will have to do. 1963, cub, no attachments, does run and drive well. Steering has issues though. Hoping to do at the least new top end of engine, but willing to do as much as is needed. Cost is less of a concern because this will be in the family forever I’m hoping, so doing it right is the priority. I’ll thank in advance for the help, and I’ll try to post some pictures of the “before” as soon as possible.

Ace, welcome to the forum. Be sure to check out the cub fest near you in Burlington ks. It was cancelled this year on account of coved 19 but will probably be in may next year.

Ace, you've come to the right place if you're looking for help, advice and encouragement! After all, this is the best Cub website on the planet!! :{_}: A lot of us have done what you intend to do. Here's a photo of my '53 Cub when I drug it home.


Here's a photo of my daughter and a friend coming back from picking berries in our lane after a complete rebuild. Her friend is standing on a small platform that slips into a 2" receiver on the back of the Cub.
