I creeped your forum for quite a long time. I
So I bought a '50 Cub very recently. It's pretty nice. It's an older resto. It needs some attention, which I'll give it. I'm a younger guy I think than most in this game, at 36. New to Cubs, but not new to old stuff that runs. I have lots and lots of old toys, most of which have come to me in not-so-great condition and were made correct again.
I live in Eastern PA in the Lehigh Valley. I plan to use my Cub for plowing the drive, hauling firewood in my little wagon, and moving the log splitter and trailers around from time to time.
The tractor I got is a local machine, and I am the third owner. It's a pretty good looking thing, and it seems to run well, but it has some deferred maintenance items that I would like to get shipshape. I have an owner's manual and a parts manual... I will download and print a service manual posthaste. I want to follow the "just got a Cub checklist" along with the manual, and then I guess I'll start using it.
Here's a picture of it. Thanks for having me (in advance) and if anyone wants to come by and drink my beer and tell me stories, get in touch.
