Air Filter Cup

Postby PVF1799 » Sun Jun 30, 2013 5:47 pm

Is there any way to install the air filter oil cup without the support wire scratching the cup. I'm really only concerned about this for the first assembly.

If the paint is good and dry it should not scratch it, If you could have seen how they came from IH, you would not believe the paint job on them.

Push the wire towards the engine before installing the cup. Then when you pull it back it will only scratch the side of the cup towards the engine, and you won't be able to see it. Another trick is to insert a small piece of dowel rod or wire through the loop on the bottom of the support wire, then pull down as you pull it under the cup. This takes a lot of the pressure off the cup itself.

Are you building a trailer queen or a working tractor? If it is a working tractor, the minor scratch from the wire bail will soon be forgotten as it gets other scrapes. :lol:

John, can't afford to have it be a trailer queen, it needs to be a working tractor. That being said, I'd like one photo of it totally pristine. I'm a bit anal I know that..... :oops: :big smirk: Can only imagine what your long-time Cub restorers think of my antics as i do the first one.

Ken,
Don't worry about it. I'm exactly the same way. I got REALLY mad the other day when I took a look at the gas cap on my Cub and saw the two vent holes with about 1/4" brown stain around them and a stain run towards the side of the cap. Guess the gasoline vapors did that when the temps got hot a few weeks back and caused some expansion in the tank. It's not full of gas, but probably 2/3 way full, so I don't think it was from actual liquid gasoline, just from the vapors. :evil: :evil: :evil:

I know what you mean about having it pristine for a while...it is satisfying, but having restored tractors for over 28 yrs, I've learned that there is no fun in pristine after a while. It is so difficult to keep them that way, that you will start to dread loading and tying them down.
I still do my best to make them show quality, but have found that once the first scratch is there, they become more enjoyable!
I've never met a tractor I didn't like....but I have found some that were greatly annoying....
