The butterscotch pudding is what the HY-Tran does with moisture. Keeps it suspended.

You made a great purchase. You'll love your Cub more as you play with it more.
Do the hydraulics work well? Does it have the single prong fast hitch on the back?
Loud gears are a Farmall trademark. Make sure you know the difference between whining and grinding. Whining is normal for old transmissions. Grinding CAN mean you have bearings that won't be happy in a couple hundred more hours.
And Kenny is right: that pudding saved your transmission from more damage. Do put in real HyTran or an equivalent, not a knockoff!

Thanks for the pictures. They bring back memories. I sold my 1948 Cub last spring. Kinda missing it now. Hope you enjoy yours.
Mine would "sing" to me but she always ran good. Rick

Got to love them Cubs. We love ours so much here that we bought a second one impulsively at an auction lol. We are trying to sell that one and plan to start showing/using the one we already had. The Farmall Cub is a good machine, and it is even better when you know the history of that tractor back to the day it was bought new by a family member, like our Cub was, and that just makes these old tractors even more special. Have fun with your Cub.
On a funny side note, if anyone wants to have fun starting a Cub that has electric start... use the hand crank, you may be surprised lol.
