I’m the 2nd owner of this model 100 iH Cub. I’ve acquired an OEM headlights panel and 3-point hitch (w/helper spring) for it, and aim to add additional weights to the rear wheels for snow-pushing traction. Maybe eventually an exhaust stack with a roar-suppressing muffler like some hunters put on their ATVs.
The purchase was inspired by my grandad’s (very similar) iH Cub, on which I first learned to operate a manual transmission. He used it to plow and disc his humongous vegetable garden and prep his melon patch & stand of sweet corn. He also had a Ford Jubilee NAA, which certainly contributed to my tractor affection.
Has anyone here ever added the lift-lever helper spring to their front blade?
I’d be curious what improvement you observed with ease of operation. Otherwise, I’d sure like to add the hydraulic lift, although it is hard for me to justify the expense. Helper spring is probably more attainable for me.
