New Project

Postby Forty9er » Thu Nov 03, 2022 2:30 pm

Growing up, I spent a lot of hours on a 100 & 130 plowing tobacco, garden and whatever else needed doing they were our go to tractors. Then after dad retired from farming and I worked off the farm he decided to drop back to cubs for the garden and mowing etc. So, the 100 & 130 got new homes and he picked up a couple of cubs. He used one in the garden and one to mow for many years. Eventually he quit gardening and started getting help mowing so the cubs went idle under the shed for several years and have been that way since he passed on. I talked to my brother to see if he was interested in them, and he was so he picked one, and I am getting the other one.

The one I got was Dad's mowing unit. A 1949 with a belly mower. Let's just say she is a little rough in her work clothes and appears to be well involved with a good rust prevention program. It appears that every seal has given up on its job. But hey that's ok, it was Dad's, and I am confident he took good care of the maintenance when he had her going and was able.

I am looking forward to getting her back up on her feet, running, mechanically sound and getting some usefulness out of her. I don't expect her to end up as a garage queen but when opportunities come to make improvements, I am sure I will.

I appreciate this site and the wealth of information it provides. Time to get to work.

Welcome to the Forum, Forty9er!

Glad to hear your story.

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Don't know if you have any paperwork to your Cub, but after you’ve logged your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

Would encourage you to check out a CubFest next year. These are annual gatherings around the country where, primarily Cub owners attend to meet other Cubbers, but it's open to all tractor enthusiasts, and learn about tractor repair, etc., and enjoy great food. The CubFest calendar and some more info about what a CubFest is all about is located here: CubFest and Tractor Show Announcements

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see them.

Remember:
  • Pictures are limited to 500 KB file size. Use an image reducer app or program to downsize pics.
  • When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
  • Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
  • When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

Since they have been idle for a while, make sure you have oil pressure before running it long.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

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.

When you get to the stage where you are ready to get her running don’t forget to prime the oil pump.
