Did a little bit more work today on the Cub JR. It wasn't a huge amount of work but made a big difference in looks! Lukeste borrowed me his Milwaukee steel cutting skill saw so I could cut the top of the frame straight. This saw is quite impressive for ease of cutting and finish left when your done. It just doesn't seem right cutting steel with what seems like a wood working tool! Anyway I'm one step closer to the end, or maybe the middle of the project.

Looking Good Tom. Is this called restoration or building a replica?

Restoration, no doubt in my mind. Sure I had to make a new frame for it and fix a lot of other pieces but it will be mostly original Wallis stuff.

Did you figure out anything on that fuel shut off valve I was emailing you about last fall?

One new part and four parts from the original Cub Jr in the last picture, that makes it about 80% original.
Keep up the good work Tom.

It's under a snowbank yet. I haven't forgot. We got a good March snowdump.

Those carbide saws are awesome. I bought a chop saw two years ago and have cut many many pieces of iron both tube and solid and still going strong. Slow speed, no sparks, little heat, perfect cuts and it is always the same diameter. One downside is the cost of a new blade [$150] but about the same when you would probably consume 10 abrasive blades in the same time. Ed B

I have been searching recently to get the right magneto impulse for this tractor and another one I have. They use a KW model T magneto with a flange drive type impulse. Most of the KW mags use the drive lug impulse but this application has a flange to bolt the drive gear on. So hopefully somebody out there has a part like this I can buy. The flange is part of the impulse and holds the impulse spring inside of it. Here's a couple photos if anybody has one or two I would really be interested.

Gary Biewer just listed one of these mags for sale on Facebook. Not sure if it has the impulse on it.

Thanks for the info but it has the more common lug drive on it.

I have not worked on this tractor much. Been working on a few small projects with this cub jr and some of the K's I have. Mostly progress is not moving forward with this tractor. Last spring I was working on the front wheel with new spokes and the re-machined hub. This summer I picked up another engine block to use in the tractor. This new engine block is identical to what it would have originally been set up with just with a higher serial number. At Le Sueur I found a KW magneto with the correct impulse drive I was needing, now I will have to machine another one because it was set aside for a K that is closer to running.

Here is a few photos of the front wheel, new engine block, and a couple other little projects between this tractor and the K's.

I have also been busy picking up more projects this fall. A friend of mine found the three for me in western North Dakota including a K on airplane tires, OK, and K parts tractor. Last weekend I made a trip to Nebraska to pick up another K that has an actual Cub JR engine in it. So far on my project I have not had a correct serial number engine. This one ended up being a really early serial number, too old for my chassis since the early tractors had several changes. Still is correct for a Cub JR though. This spring I need to rearrange the steel wheeled area in the shed to line up all the K's if there is room
