George Willer’s builds

Postby puddlejumper » Sun Jun 26, 2022 7:54 pm

Is there a way to access and read through George’s builds? I’m looking for but not finding bulls threads for the rat cub and the tricycle cub. It appears that he was quite a contributor to this forum, I would hate to hear that his threads are no longer here.

Thanks
Dave

George had his own website that showed a lot of his multifaceted talents. It went down shortly after his death. You can search for him here as "author" and bring up his posts.

George was one of the original contributors to Farmall Cub.com. ,built and modified several Farmall Cub Tractors during his journey thru life.He definitely had a mechanical aptitude and a sense of humor. I was blessed to call him a friend. I have his Tryke and Rat cub tractors.

Depending on what info you are looking for, Steve and I may be able to assist. Steve bought Trike and Rat just a few days before George passed and both of us spent a good bit of time with them. As mentioned above, I have Scotty and Shorty.

I am primarily interested in the tricycle front end because I’m building a wide 2 seater cub and would rather do a tricycle than have the widened stock front end. Also I saw mentions of how he widened the rat cub and was interested in seeing that. My current plan is to lengthen an axle shaft as I don’t have the means to machine the case, but I’d like to see what he did nevertheless.

Thanks for your replies!
