I finished cleaning up the tank/hood assy, but in doing so I found the tank has rusted through just above the bottom seam towards the back of the tank. I'll set it aside for now and check my other tanks to see what shape they are in.

Started stripping another tank and so far it seems OK. Won't know for sure until I get the rust inside cleaned out. The hood needs a little more work than the original but nothing I can't handle.

Drilled out the spot welds and removed the bad hood. This will make handling the tank easier during the cleaning process. If this tank cleans up good, I will remove the hood from the rust thru tank and install on this one. I don't know if I am making progress or just digging the hole deeper at this point.

Cleaned the hood from 3 post up in the electrolysis tank. It has some rust thru at the back of the hood. I think I can cut a piece out of the hood in the previous post and weld into this one.

My brother came over with his grandson today to do some work on the engine for this cub. He had his grandson turning wrenches, tapping holes, and torquing bolts. They torqued the rod bolts, installed a new rear main seal, and bolted the pan down. Then moved on to head installation. He is going to try to get back next weekend to install the manifold, carb, and a few other parts. Anyway, this is progress, and his grandson is getting his hands dirty.

Thanks for the heads up. I was unaware of the difference. I'll get that checked out.

Checked out the fuel tanks to see if they are long or short ear/dash. I have another tank for a long-eared dash that will go on this tractor to replace the rusted out tank. The 2 other good tanks are short eared that I will use on the 1949 and 1951 cubs.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Keep up the good work. Looks like you're doing a great job!

Several years ago, I had thoughts of disconnecting the hood from the gas tank permanently. That project never materialized. Thought that, like an A, if you could remove the hood w/o removing the gas tank, you'd be ahead. I'm sure the IH engineers had something in mind when they had the two welded together.

My '49 cub is #80310 and it has the short dash. That said it could have been changed in its previous life.

Thanks - tst -2cubs and indy61.
I have seen some of both long and short dash.
I just didn't know when and why they changed.
