looking for reputable repair location in WesternNY

Postby Dave T » Thu Mar 28, 2024 1:31 pm

I inherited an old International Harvest Cub Cadet Low Boy from my father, and am looking for someone that can repair the tractor to get it running again. I live in Western NY and would appreciate and recommendations.

Dave,
Do you have pictures that you can include so we know exactly what you have.
There are two (2) versions of the International Cub Loboy and three (3) versions of the International Loboy #154, 184 & 185.

Dave,
Yes, they do.
By the S/N Plate, you have a 1967 International Cub Lo-Boy. The 'J' suffix indicates a Rockford Clutch (vs. Auburn Clutch).

Looks like a mid-life refurb but still in great shape.

Have you read through this post "What to do with a Cub you just brought home" https://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=91765

Thanks for the reference to the post. I have read thru the list and it seems very helpful. I was hoping to find someone locally to do the initial work or at least give me some hands on guidance. I have called around to see if anyone knows anyone that might work on these tractors and keep running into a dead end. I also keep thinking about just selling the thing also.

One member here, gitractorman may be able to point you in the right direction. He hasn't visited here in a couple months so wouldn't have seen your question. He might see a PM. You could try sending him one asking your question.

You might try asking at North Otto Tractor Parts, I am not aware that he does any repair. He may be able to give you a referral.

You may want to contact member tst. He is in Dutchess County, New York - easter NY. But he works on cubs

It looks pretty good. What is wrong?
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Place and ad in the local newspaper. Probably an old, retired farmer/mechanic who could get it running.

If the engine is not stuck, shouldn't take much to get it started.

Next thought, small engine shops, ask a neighbor farmer for help.
I have an excuse. CRS.
