Farmall Cub owner again

Postby daytime dave » Wed Apr 13, 2022 3:27 pm

Monday this week I became a Cub owner again. It was listed for sale a year ago but I had a broken leg at the beginning of Fall and other things to think about. I contacted the owner over the winter and could tell it was well cared for. I saw it at the beginning of April and brought it home the first nice day after seeing it.
It's serial number says it's a 1959. It's sporting the original paint, original front tires and has never been left outside. The original owner lived next to the last owner and sold it to him in 1974. Some of the items, like the PTO belt pulley and swivel draw bar were never used. The overall condition was amazing to me. I plan to use it and keep it as nice as I can while using it. It came with the 90 degree pulley, swivel draw bar, grader blade, cultivators, tire chains, sickle mower and a land plow. I'd like to find a small disc harrow to go with it.

It seems to only show honest wear. I'm very happy to have found what I think is a very nice one.

I had also planned on purchasing one from a member here, but saw the ad too late and was second in line. Oh well.

Is that a "J" at the end of the serial? (Rockford clutch?)

What is the significance of the Rockford clutch?

Most Cubs had the Rockford clutch. The Auburn clutch was also used on some, but is less common. Both work equally well.
