My new 1949 Famall cub

I just got a cub for doing my gardening work. Never owned a tractor of any sort in my life. Matter of fact, never had a garden. Did some checking around and found that it is a 1949 IH Farmall Cub model. Runs like a cherry and has a sickle mower, cultivator?, ditch or single spade?, another couple of do-dads with tines on it and a drawbar type hitch. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I need to check before I run it? It leaks a little oil so that one is obvious. I tried the mower out last night when the guy delivered it and it worked fine but I dont want to run her anymore till I check everything. TIA Gerald

Hi Gerald, make sure you check the transmission for water, a lot of the shifters would let water run into the transmission. I've even heard of a few that would (because of water) would'nt move in freezing weather. Hope that helps and take care.

I just changed the oil in my steering box and found it was mostly water. Also if you are going to change the belts soon check the oil in the fan bearings.

You may want to change radiator fluid while you are at it. Find all the grease fittings and give them a shot of grease. Have fun...BB
