Thanks for sharing. I find the hunt to be one of the best parts of this hobby.

Nice find, you lucky guy. That cub, certainly looks like it should be investigated
further, as a rebuild candidate.

Yea, I've looking at those tractors still and doing a little bit of research. The cub is really in a good state as for as what there. It is missing the engine. I might just take some time a really give it thorough check and find some schematics on the tractor build up and parts list to compare to and see just what is or isn't there. It looks like all it needs is an engine. Parts tree.com has a good set of parts lists for this tractor. I've been looking at. These tractors are pretty darn expensive when they are actually put together a working. I've looking at engines, they are a bit pricy but when compared to the over cost of the tractor complete it's not all that bad. I can't see whether or not the transmission is good though. Before I seriously look into an engine, I'll have to get a good feel for the transmission. I have to imagine that sucker isn't cheap. If anyone is interested in buying it as it sits, I'll take offers. I don't really have the money to rebuild it anyway. I just didn't want to let rot away or get trashed. If it gets running it would be a real beast. I figured I could at least part it out and not let the parts go to waste at least. As far as the Jacobsen goes, the engine looks good, I think that tractors has a good bit of it there also. The tires are a bit harsh. I picked up a sears suburban today. It had a good seat, good looking tires, heavy duty old style trans similar to the Jacobsen.
