Just thought I would share a my latest video and extend an invite to watch some of the 45 Farmall Cub videos I have on my YouTube Channel. The latest video shows my 1953 cub grading/leveling a site where I plan to put up a workshop. I hope you enjoy some cub time! -Tom Video: https://youtu.be/oGbRHTE2MZY Farmall Cub Playlist: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5nBBt_uX4QiJDjBFcpDUoqdfIzcWulie
I just installed my restored 54-A Grader/Plow on my cub and uploaded the video to my YouTube channel. This is Part 4 in a video series I have been putting together throughout the restoration process of this plow blade. Part 5 will feature pushing some snow around once we get some plow-able snow here in Maine. I suppose Part 4 is also a good stand alone instructional video on how to attach the plow to a cub. Below are the links to the playlist for the series or just Part 4. I hope you will consider subscribing to my YouTube channel (where you will find 20+ Farmall Cub videos) and support the channel by giving it a Thumbs Up, leaving a comment, & sharing the videos. You can also follow me on facebook and instagram at "optvideo". Thanks and enjoy the videos, -Tom Part 4 - The series Playlist -
Howdy, I'm new here but not new to the Red World! I am currently in the middle of restoring a "L54-A" plow to use with my 1953 Cub. The "Correct Police" may squawk at the "L54-A" identification, but I choose to label it thus since my plow is composed of components from both the Lowboy L-54 and the regular Cub 54-A Grader plow. That said, I have also posted a video of my progress so far on my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/ourpassthyme I look forward to enjoying this site and getting to know some of the others here. -Tom The direct link to the video can be found here:
I'm at my wit's end over this crankshaft pulley on my 1940 B. I tried half inch bolts and althread in the crankshaft hole with no luck. I tried a half inch tap to chase the thread and it ate the end of my tap. I tried a 7/16 fine thread tap and it went in fine. I then tried 7/16 althread and it pulled out without getting started. I can't get a half inch fine thread bolt or althread even started into the hole. The threads are not boogered up and I'm officially stuck. Yesterday afternoon I tried grade 5 half-inch course thread, both bolts and althread. No luck. This pulley has a hole for a set crew, but nothing in it. If I could find anything between 1/2" inch and 7/16" I would use that, but nobody has such a creature. I put it in the oven at 400 degrees for about an hour last night and it went on a little easier at first, then stopped with about 3/4" left to get it on completely; I used welding gloves rather than run the risk of my wife making me sleep in the barn with this tractor if I used her oven mitts on this thing. I got it on the shaft and lined up with the woodruff key then my dad held a 2x6 block against the pulley and I hit it until I split two pieces of 2x6, and it finally stopped as I said before, with roughly 3/4" left to go. I don't like the idea of hitting it and running the risk of messing up connecting rods or bearings. I admit that I'm no machinist. I don't have any Farmall guys around me that I can call on for advice or even invite over to sit on a bucket and give my advice. Both of my grandfathers were pretty fair machinists, but they've both been gone for years and I have no brothers or cousins in the tractor mechanic business that I can call on for advice. It's just me trying to get this tractor running for our little girls who are expecting daddy to perform a miracle in the barn and make their pretty red tractor that they've been waiting for nearly a year on to be fixed. I am open to any suggestions. And if anyone feels the need to publicly berate me as another member did on another tractor site by telling me that I didn't know what I was doing, that I better just quit, and that I needed to take it to someone who knew what they were doing, then I guess go ahead, too. Thanks in advance and God's Blessings on you all.
