Default Family Owned 70: Project Uncle Dick

This topic was started in the old Only Cub Cadets site. The 70 came home April of 2008. I've been working on the 70 as time allowed. I have the time now because my work requires me to take a week off without pay. This will a good week to work on the 70.

My Wife's Uncle Dick purchased a 70 new in March of 1965. He mainly used the 70 in a 10 acre straw berry-blue berry farm. Uncle Dick past away 16 years ago and the tractor wasn't used very much since then. I had a chance to buy Uncle Dick's 70.

It came home last Saturday.

70 has a 3 point, sleeve hitch adapter and a Brinly cultivator.

Manuals that came with the 70.



Pages from sales brouchure:



70 will be restored back to orginal.

Merk, thanks for posting the photos. That's awesome that it was used on a 10 acre farm. I was just explaining earlier today to my 13 year old that these tractors aren't "lawn mowers" and your post just gave me more fuel for the discussion!! Good luck with the resto and have a great evening!!

Merk,
I was thinking about this just the other day and wondering how you were doing on it. Can't wait to see more pictures as your work continues.

I have no Brinly stuff for sale right now.

This was an interresting last 6-8 months. Between work, wrecking my Suburban, trailer and Cubs this spring and some family health problems I haven't been able to work much on the 70.
Working on the 70 is going to be good therapy for me.

I like to take plenty of pictures when I take a Cub apart. It helps when I put it back together.




Notice the brackets holding the wire harness in place?

Nice!! You got lucky keeping it in the family and with all the original documents. We have my grandfathers 128 that we are restoring. It is a slow go.

Merk,
Great tractor and thanks for the photos. They will help me get my wiring routed and secured properly. Of course getting the clips will be another mission.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
