Question About Replacing Radiator

Tue Mar 30, 2004 8:53 pm

(Here is my second attempt to successfully post my radiator pictures. Thanks for information on how to do it, John.)

I am getting ready to replace the radiator on my cub. Attached is a picture that shows some of the damage to my existing radiator. When I first bought this cub, I figured I would have to replace it one day and, since I had to pull the hood off to remove the generator, etc., I guess that day has finally come.

My question is this: Is there anything that I should be on the look out for when replacing this radiator with one that I bought a couple of years ago from TM Tractor Parts? Also, is there a stock gasket that is used here?

Any advice or information you may be able to give me would be greatly appreciated.

Tom,

You are probably already planning to do this but now is a great time to clean out the gunk and deposits in the casting, when you remove the old radiator. Also a good time to add oil to the fan pulley bearing. Finally, don't forget to apply antiseize compound to the radiator drain plug threads.....Bill V in Md.

Tom, now would be a good time to clean all the dirt and scale build up that has been growing in there for all those years, You can get a gasket kit at your local IH dealer. Cub-Hoser
