Thought I would start this thread to motivate me to finish this project.

The Red and White Farmall Cub.

 

About 3 yrs ago I was giving this to fix, White Demonstrator Cub.

The motor is N/G, sat outside in the weather too long.

The rear rims are shot, rusted real bad, full of calcium.

So I searched for another motor and found nothing, I then started looking for another parts tractor with a good running motor and bought this, the Red one.

The Red one has a good motor and 2 good rear rims, the rear tires are N/G as are the front tires.

The White one has good rear tires, front tires and 4 wheel weights. Rear rims are N/G as is the motor.

The plan is to use all the best parts on the Red one to make a good usable tractor for scuffling, cultivating the garden, that's what the owner wants it for.

Today I tried to fit the cultivators on the Red one, it was 3yrs ago when I took them off the White one. After a few try's and searching the Farmall forum site for info I think I got them on right. the 2 front shovels are mounted wrong I found out, easy fix. But the rear lifting bar is missing, don't know if it was there when I got it or not, all I know is I can't find it and need one.

The part that is missing goes on this arm and connects to the 2 lower arms.

This is what it looks like, # 2 in the diagram. Anybody have one of these lifting bars?

I also took off the front wheels from the Red one and the rear wheels. Drained the Calcium from the 2 rear wheels and dismounted 1 tire, off the worst looking rim on the Red one, looks like I can reuse it, needs to cleaned up and painted.  but with 2 new tubes and the good tires from the White one I hope it works.

That's as far as I got today.

A Demonstrator with wheel weights all around? How cool is that?

It's not seized but every exhaust valve stuck open, manifold and ports in block really rusted.

Water must of got in the muffler, worked it's way into the engine and sat outside for how many yrs.???

I might not be much help doug but think of the name "Demonstrator" How many of those do you see or even hear of? A lot of people would be interested in seeing this in person especially at shows. It does sound like a lot of work but it would pay off when you get it finished and show it off. I wish you the best of luck on this rebuild.

Don't rob to many parts off the white one. IF you can document that it was Factory White Demo unit, they are pretty popular and somewhat sought after. Small, nimble, reasonably easy to transport and there are parts...

Every tractor show I have gone to in Canada has at least 1 Cub Demonstrator there, and 3 to 5 Red ones.

From what I know the Demonstrator tractors were suppose to be painted Red by the dealers when they sold them. ???

Doug, good luck with your work.  I don't know much about the demonstrators.  I hope you find the link bar you need.  The cub is great as a cultivator.

Yeah, but not a hard and fastly followed rule.

The story I was told was when a dealer lent them out for demo and the farmer bought it... Never coming back in for the repaint.

Many a red one has been repainted white. Like the 54 grey Fergy pony and patio JD's, copies and forgeries are out there.

I agree with the others, if you really have a real "demonstractor" then it is automatically a treasure.  Try to look up the S/N and see if it is the right range.  If it is, I would consider taking the time to get the engine fixed.

I agree 100%  people love to see the "white ones"

If what you have is truly a White Demo, then there is NO DOUBT that it's worth saving.  I understand it's yours to do with as you wish but they aren't making anymore of them and they are not all that common.  To be a true Demo it must first be a 1950 model and secondly be in the right serial number range.  The range was between 99356 and 106516.  It sure looks right to me from the pictures, looks like it has the red headlights on it which would be correct.  I agree with what has allready been said.  Save that White Demo!!!
