Kind of a vague description , at least for me...Hole behind carb ??? ...There's a hole inside the oil filter housing for priming the pump ...I normally add oil to the filter housing as well after putting a couple quarts in the oil sump ..(Where the dip stick lives)...Don't exceed 3 quarts total...The long bolt on the right side of the block aint clicking in me head...Maybe someone else will chime in ....Dave...

I'm guessing you mean the small hole to the right of the cab as you look at it. You have to spread the hydraulic lines (if you have them) to see it. I usually prime mine there since I hate removing the filter cover.

That is the oil pressure regulating valve.

You can also remove the oil filter cover and pump about a dozen squirts in the primer hole near the top.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I don't think you'll see any oil pressure while cranking the motor over. Start it up and you should see pressure in about 5 seconds.

Hi,
If you have the oil pump primed, and turn the engine over at the speed it would go with no spark plugs in it, oil will probably squirt out of the little hole in the filter chamber.

the plug behind the carb is just a hole in to the block for drilling at the factory, priming that will not help, the plug you removed with the spring is the pressure relief valve so that will not help either, prime it as shown in the picture Barnyard posted

I've never checked the oil pressure gauge unless engine is running.
Suspect engine drives pump gears faster than the starter does. (?).

It seems like I remember that above the hole in the filter chamber goes nowhere there is a small allen plug above it I removed the plug and fed oil into where the plug was and it just came out the small hole in the filter chamber. Maybe im mistaken Gonna give it second look tonight. I have another question on the front right side of my engine if your facing tractor there was a small diameter brake line size metal line screwed into the block . It was rusted so bad I don't know where the other end went to im wondering is it a oil line and where does the other end end up ? Many thanks for all the feedback i'm a newbee at tractors Eric

I think your brake line looking fitting is a crankcase breather. Maybe feeds back to intake.

The plug Barnyard mentioned I have used to prime oil .
When facing the engine manifold ,it is low just to the right of where the manifold ends. (Right of the valve cover.)

I had a hose and funnel reduced to a 1/ 4 inch barb for some other reason ,and used it.

Hi,
If I am thinking of the part you are describing, the pipe is not an oil line, it is the breather tube, it goes from the block fitting, up to the air cleaner intake pipe. There is a fitting on the pipe, between the underside of the hood, and the top of the air cleaner body.
It is to provide crankcase ventilation.
The tubes sometimes get plugged with goop from the engine, and need cleaning out inside. Also clean the 2 fittings, and be sure they are open through them.

Below is a page from the Cub parts manual, showing the air cleaner, and the tube. The tube is number 8 in the pic.

You didn't say what year Cub you have.

Usually the right and left sides of the tractor are from a position of sitting in the seat, looking ahead. So that is the left side of the tractor, where the carburetor is.

Ive had a cub for about as long as anybody here....over 45 years....and it has never shown oil pressure in less than 30 seconds of running. Original everything in the oil system.
Very few starters will crank at 300 rpm...half of idle speed. Too slow to build pressure.

If you are trying to pump oil pressure like a chevy through the distributor hole, you are wasting your time. The oil film that is left on the bearings is fine...just crank it up and watch the gage...if it doesnt come up in a minute or you hear wierd noises...shut it down.

I got oil system primed and after a set of points and condenser it fired up !! Now i'm more comfortable investing in a radiator . Thru research there is a 100$ one on Amazon and a 200$ one in other websites ( MINE IS THE ONE WITHOUT LOWER TANK ). I'm a firm believer in getting what you pay for i'm just wondering what the main difference is in the two. Thanks again for all the feedback you guy's !!

You'll want to get a Clancy radiator unless you want to buy the $100 one then in a few months buy the better one http://www.tmtractor.com/new/co/671fp.htm
