Ok Folks,

I had a Farmall Cub given to me.It is missing a few items. Starter, Magneto and Generator or Alternator I have not had a chance to look at it in depth yet. I do know that the motor is free and will turn. Question will a starter off of an A work or at least turn it in the right direction. It is to cold to bust a knuckle to find out. It is a 1949 cub with lights, so generator or Alternator is needed to recharge battery from useage and starting of the tractor.

Thanks,
James

JFYI 99% of all engine made turn the same direction other wise it would be hard for companies like Wagner and muncie to build transmissions etc that will interchange. As for the starter that I can not say

There is a tremendous number of engines out there that turn the opposite direction of your 99% figure.

If the starter mounts behind the flywheel there is a chance it may work. Otherwise not. I am not familiar with a cub.

James,
Does your starter on the cub come in from the front side of the flywheel? The A starter comes in from the backside of the flywheel .Your mag is also special to just the cub.

I understand the J-4 Magneto works on the Cub.

Yes there are but they are not common and no where near as many so the ones I am talking about. Now starter motors that is a total different thing. As a matter of fact I do not know of any engine I have ever seen that did not turn the same as other, other then one and it ran both ways and that is how the thing had both forward and reverse you simply shut it off and started it back wards to go back wards

Here are a few pictures of an alternator kit that I have designed for the Farmall Cub to mount the Hitachi alternator.
The starter for the CUB enters the flywheel from the front. I agree with old 99% of all engine turn the same direction, CCW when you look at the flywheel from the rear.

just by looking at the fan you can tell the rotation of that engine, and also when cranking them you crank clockwise from front. dont know of any of these old tractors that dont turn this way. depends all on how starter mounts.

Stick yer hand crank in the slot and crank it clockwise. The engine will continue to spin in the same direction.

Yer flywheel is firmly attached to yer crankshaft, thus it will spin in the same direction.

Yer starter has to spin counter-clockwise in order to spin the flywheel clockwise on this Cub.

For the Cub, it's easy to get the picture because you're looking from the radiator back and can see yer starter motor, etc.

All my diesels and gassers that I have turn clockwise if standing in front. What brands turn the other direction? I'm curious to know.
