  1. YOUR FARTHEST TRACTOR TRIP(s)

    Seeing this thread, we might want to have a thread on the most you hauled at one time. I see several posts that have a lot of tractors in one haul.
  2. wanted 48" mower deck

    Post a wanted to buy ad in our classified section.
  3. Best snow removal pictures

    I'm with Randy, snow and the cold of the winter can stay away. As for me, I would rather look at the snow removal pictures than have to actually remove snow.
  4. 312-8 pto safety switch removal

    Defeating safety switches isn't such a good idea and should only be done for the individual that will be using it, and should be reversible when and if the tractor goes to a new owner. On some tractor websites, it's against their policy to discuss defeating safety switches due to liability. We don't have that policy as far as I know, but digression should be applied here. Defeating safety switches might be okay for you, but what about the next owner, or even your spouse, parent, sibling or child that attempts to use that tractor when the safety switches have been defeated? I, myself, would not like to see this discuss here, but as I said, it isn't against policy.
  5. 1950 Farmall Cub In-progress

    That's an option I'm considering also. The previous owner had a leaf spring that we believe he was going to use to repair the runners. It's about the same width and thickness of the original runners.
  6. 1950 Farmall Cub In-progress

    Here is the Woods 59 mower after I cleaned it up a bit. As you can see, both runners aren't in the best of condition, especially the left runner, which is missing the runner part. I can get a new one for around $60, but that will have to wait. I might find one at Cub-Arama for a lot less, used.
  7. 1950 Farmall Cub In-progress

    Well, she's finished, sort of. Here are the "after" pictures. I'm not going to restore or refurbish this Cub, but leave it as is for the time being. I just wanted to get the wiring correct, fix some things and return some functionality. I removed the deck and removed a bent blade and power washed the deck. I still have to buy blades and a belt, but that may have to wait. I will be going to Cub-arama next month and will look for some bargains for both of my Farmall Cubs.
  8. Missouri Mule-GT14

    See, it's already paid for itself. On the tires, I think I would try and stay in the size they were - to me, I like the larger tires and rims on the GT-14s, it makes them stand out from the other Wheel Horses of that era.
  9. 1950 Farmall Cub In-progress

    Next, the work in progress. We should finish her up today and I will be taking it home. Hopefully, that is, and will include more pictures of it "fixed" then.
  10. 1950 Farmall Cub In-progress

    I picked up a second Farmall Cub, a 1950, to go along with my 1947 one I bought last summer. This one runs good, but has some unique modifications that I have been addressing. It came from a buddy of mine's neighbor. He had passed away recently and his son wanted John to sell it for him. John already has 3 Cubs so he put this one up for sale. The previous owner, before he passed, had a bit of dementia, which is perhaps why the odd modifications. The generator, which is supposed to go under the hood, was relocated to the right side of the hood, and there was wires spliced everywhere. The 6V battery was connected backwards - in the Cub 6V system, the positive terminal is the ground. The front seal was leaking and there were a few other issues. I left it at John's place, and with his help, we have been working on it. First relocating the generator to it's proper place, plus a new voltage regulator, a new starter to negative terminal cable, the correct fuel strainer bowl, and are rewire the whole tractor. A new fuse holder and another light switch, was also added. I ordered a free safety gas cap from IHC and will need to still address the Woods mower issues. Here are some pictures, first the way I bought it.
  11. Missouri Mule-GT14

    Here are the liquid filled tires and rims that, for some reason, Randy didn't want. As you can see, the rims and tires are in pristine condition and Randy could have sold them for big, big bucks. The first three pictures, the tire still has about all the stuff in it, and as you can see, the one (back) side of the rim is pretty well rusted beyond repair. The front side, the third picture, the rim looks okay. The last 3 pictures was the other tire, and it had leaked over half of the stuff out.
  12. Missouri Mule-GT14

    Randy, I'm glad this GT-14 is getting the attention it deserves. One thing on the 8 speed conversion, will you do a manual lift on this one or run a separate pump for the hydraulic lift? If you want to use it for plow day, you will definitely will appreciate hydraulic lift. I've seen electric lift at plow days, but hydraulics is the way to go.
  13. GT-14 For Sale

    Changed Price to $225 Changed Status to Closed
  14. Added another Cub to my collection

    The wide frames Cub Cadets are a little easier to work on, as there is more space between the frame. But, I basically just worked on the narrow frames as I only had one wide frame, a 1250.
  15. Added another Cub to my collection

    Both Cubs look good. I had a few narrow frame Cubs also.
