cub tools

Postby goxu1 » Tue May 31, 2022 9:44 pm

How common (or scarce) are original tools for the CUB ?
I wouldn't mind getting a grease gun if they are around ??
Cripes - I thought I'd never get one.

The Tools and Tool Box shown in the TC-37A Parts Catalog, page 59, show lubricator, spark plug and breaker point gauge, socket wrench with handle, spark plug wrench, and pliers. I'm uncertain if any of these would have the IH stamp on them or not--others probably would know that. If they didn't show the IH logo, then what was supplied was the common tools of the day. If they did have the IH logo, then I'd say they're more scarce that hen's teeth.

I picked up a lubricator some years back at an auction. Lincoln was the early manufacturer and this one I bought was a Lincoln; looks identical to the catalog. I was trying to do what I assume you're doing--fill your Cub tool box with the appropriate tools that would have come with or been available to buyers at the time.

The additional tools/attachments were the muffler, spark arrestor and pneumatic tire pump.

Thanks for the info about tools having the IH logo. I wasn’t certain, but if forced to guess, would of said yes. Can’t imagine IH issuing or selling anything without their mark on it.

Thanks again! :tractor:

JimCub48 was kind enough to text me these pics of the cub tools, and let me post them on his behalf!

Can you post a photo of the IH stamp on the grease gun?

Wow, that's really a complete kit with the EngineAir! Neat!

I grabbed up one of the grease guns at a local tractor show, but it does not have the IH markings. For three bucks, I couldn't help myself. :D
