Farmall Cub Tractor: Difference Between a Service Manual, Owner's Manual, Operator's Manual

We’re often asked about the difference between each manual available for a Farmall Cub tractor. In this video, Dan and Rachel give a quick explanation of each book and show the inside to help the viewers see the strengths of each style of manual.

  1. Love your videos ……..I just bought my 5th Farmall and your info has been a great help on my tractors!!

  2. o my… if a guy was to date a girl like Rachel in high school and said the car won't run… Mmmm, big mistake. 🥺 she would under the hood fixing it. 👩‍🏭🛠 happy 2022 🥳🤩

  3. I bought the farmall cub book from your site written by Rachel and Ken and i dont even own a cub….yet! Great read and educational for what i hope to be a cub purchase soon. Thanks.

  4. Those manuals are essential if you buy an old Farmall. I have 3 for my 140. Grandpa had a 1955 Cub that a cousin of mine now has and we still have the original red owner's manual for it. I've used all of them numerous times.

  5. Books and useful information for all it takes to repair agricultural tractors, how to contact to buy?

  6. Truth be told, I’d watch Rachel give a tutorial on grass growing. That said, as always, she and Dan do a simple and thorough job of highlighting what is what on manuals, as they do on any subject tackled. What I wouldn’t give to have these two as my local mechanics for keeping my old tractors in tip top shape. As I've stated before, I'd love to see her do a book on the early post WWII Ford tractors. As an oh by the way, a 1951 Massey Harris Pony just joined my collection and hope that she and and Dan can go over general maintenance on one at some point.

  7. Do you carry the same type of manuals for some 2 cyl. Tractors? I believe the same ideals on the manuals but some of the operators manuals for the 2 cylinders are difficult to get.

  8. I own a 1968 Ford 5000. Finding the proper manual is not easy. I have 5 different manuals at this point. The first was a 3rd party manual. It was good for the basic overhaul. I then picked up the Owner's Manual reprint which I did learn some things as the maint section had some info that the 3rd party book did not. 3rd manual was purchased when I was looking for more information on the carburetor. Even with the book, it was your video on Ford's Holley carbs that helped me the most (Thank you!!!!)

    4th and 5th manuals came about when I was trying to diagnose and fix what I thought was the PTO not disengaging. Both are Ford reprints, but while the 4th had a nice diagram of the hydraulic clutch system that operates the PTO, the text wasn't enough detail. Finally, I found #5. This monster 900+ page, 2 binder color reprint is AWESOME. It goes into extreme detail on everything. For example, it provides a 5 page section on how to verify your thermostat is operating properly, complete with an out of engine test setup. The same detail exists for nearly every component. There is a schematic for the Proof Meter and details exactly what components are there. AND… There is a very detailed section on the PTO. It was with the help of this manual that I realized that the brake band was bad on my machine. I'll have to open up the top cover to repair it, but I learned enough about the system to not worry about it. Yes, there is a danger that you can have the PTO spin when not engaged, but knowing and simply making sure you don't go near it with the engine running is good information. Seems that once the fluids are warm, most PTO implements will stop simply due to the load they represent, but again, knowing there is some PTO torque there is important.

    I can't explain enough how important it is with older iron to look carefully for the right manual depending on how deep your dive into the mechanics is going to be.

    Love your videos, love your store. Always check your store first when I need parts. I only wish you carried more for my machine. (^_^)

    You guys should write a book like the Farmall for the 1960's era Fords. There are a lot of these old beasts still out there working hard. I just used mine this past weekend to blow snow from my 1/4 mile long gravel driveway.

    I posted this video last year:

    Also, if you love the Blue Fords, here is a great old video:
