  1. Thanks for posting! Love the pics. Nice work!
  2. Yes. About a tablespoon of washing soda per gallon of water. I believe washing soda is Sodium Carbonate and baking soda is Sodium Bicarbonate. You want washing soda.
  3. Thanks fellas! Booked my hotel in Des Moines!
  4. Thanks a bunch! I really enjoyed following your 806 project. My favorite Farmall!
  5. The cub also gets to play the role of aircraft tug from time to time. Here she is with my 1961 Beechcraft Bonanza.
  6. Russ helped me find a replacement mower. Grandad's was too far gone. A little more electrolysis, clean and paint, and she's ready to go!
  7. I think Grandad would be proud!
  8. I used a lot of electrolysis to ease the cleaning of parts. Very little body work required. I epoxy primed and painted with Dupont Nason single stage urethane myself. ( I already owned painting equipment, including a fresh air respirator.)
  9. Starting to come together! My son helps with a test drive.
  10. I got some help along the way from a fine gentleman and Cub guru, Russ Leggitt. Russ was from just down the road in Oxford, MS. Sadly, he passed away a couple of years ago. He was instrumental in the restoration.
  11. Even got my daughter to help a little with the cleanup. (She's 20 now!)
  12. It had been sitting under a shed dilapidating for about 10 years after my grandad passed.
  13. I've been lurking on here for several months now. Thought I'd finally make a few posts and introduce myself. I grew up working on our family farm in central Arkansas. I now live in a small town in northwest Mississippi, just on the outskirts of Memphis - where I work. This Cub was my Grandad's, and since I'm not on the farm anymore it's the only real tractor I get to drive these days. We moved here in 2005, and my yard is about an acre and a half, so I decided to restore the Cub and use it as my lawnmower. These restoration pictures are all from the winter of '05-'06. I'm glad to report that the Cub is still going strong, and even still a pretty good looker. My Grandad has passed, and my Dad retired from farming about 5 years ago. So while my neighbors are zipping around on their zero turns, I'm relaxing on my Cub, enjoying some nostalgia. Anyhow, I'm starting to get the itch pretty bad to do another tractor - maybe an H, or even a 350 to match my Cub. I'm also planning to go to my first Roundup in June. Maybe I'll get to meet some of y'all. I certainly enjoy reading your posts on here. Here's my grandad, and then me on my dad's lap on this tractor (I'm 46 now).
  14. That's a great looking 806. Nice work!
  15. I've never posted, but have been following this thread for quite a while. It's kinda like getting to the end of a good book - exciting but you don't want it to be over! Great work Tony!
