No overflow tube on radiator

Sat Jan 05, 2013 11:14 pm

Getting some odds and ends done on my cub and one thing I'd like to address is the overflow on the radiator. The tube is broken off the neck. Did I see on this forum a fix for this. Something like a hollow bolt or something in that order. Could find it on the search but was sure I had seen in here.

Dan, I remember something like that too. As soon as I find it I will lock it down in the how to forum.

Yes there is one on here somewhere, Bear did it. 1/4 in brass screw with a hole drilled in it works well. I thought it was saved but guess not

I wish I had seen who did it before I started looking. It took a couple different search strings to find without an author but I figured it would have to pop up sooner or later.

I bent me a piece of 1/4" copper tubing to where I wanted it, flared the end inside the neck, then JB Welded the junction at the radiator. Took about 10 minutes and overnight to set up....
