Welcome! Your A sounds like a promising project. Just the fact that it runs is great.

Hi and glad that you got yourself the next best thing to a Cub. I like the A's, and of course the Super A's as well. Just a little big for me and my uses at the moment. One day I think I may get me one, in fact there is one my neighbour up the road has that had interested me for a long time.

Anyhoosie, the Cub Manual Server has the TC-26E Parts Manual under the A-B link. I have the Blue Ribbon Service Manual and the Owner's Manual which I hope to have scanned and uploaded sometime in the next month or so. Still have a bunch of Cub stuff to do.

If you have questions, please feel free to check what is available on the server or drop me a note.

Welcome aboard. biggrin.gif

Hello biged, I'm sure you will enjoy your A, I painted my M, H, and C with IH2150. I believe 2 quarts should cover it,also got thinner from Case IH dealer togo with it. I sprayed with quart spray gun. They also have 2150 in spray cans. Nice for little hard to get spots when you get done. The better you prep it the better it looks. Good luck, xhusker cool.gif
