Parts for the Cub oil pressure regulating valve

Sat Dec 21, 2013 7:59 pm

I'm looking for the gasket, spring and valve (#251 400, 401, 403 respectively) for the oil pressure regulating valve for the C60 engine. I have the plug (#251 402).
Can't find a supplier for these parts. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You can buy them right from the Case/IH dealer

Thanks for the input. I checked the Case/IH parts website. Found the parts, but they're no stock. Case suggested I contact a local dealer directly. I'm thinking what's the chance a local would have these parts if the parts website is no stock.

The Case/IH dealers that I dealt with in Illinois would check the stock of other dealers nationwide. They always found what I needed.

Classified Ads, this site. Several advertisers part out Cubs. JP's and Hamilton Bob's would be a good start.

Also, a number of folks not listed in the classified ads section part out Cubs.

The gasket should be a hardware store or any implement dealership item. In stock.

TM Tractors had them last time I looked, got a spring just awhile back. You might check with them when they open back up after the holidays.

F37, are you buying these because of low oil pressure when hot? If you are, it is probably crankshaft bearings, not the regulator valve.

I'm rebuilding the engine from a non-running 1948 Cub. The oil pressure regulating valve (the cup that fits on the end of the spring) is stuck in the hole and appears to be blocking an oil channel. Before I try extreme measures to remove that valve, I would like to have a spare in hand since I'll probably have to destroy that valve to get it unstuck.

Thanks. I saw that thread. I'll give it a try--along with a few other suggestions I found in this forum.

Well, I haven't found a vendor for that oil pressure regulating valve part.
But I was able to remove the stuck part of that valve that was giving me trouble.
I used the technique described in an old thread in this forum using a 1/2" OD soft copper tube. Cut about 8" length, straightened it in a vise, beveled one end, lightly tapped the tube into the stuck valve part with a ball peen hammer, worked the tube side-to-side and rotated it with a vice grip pliers. Repeated this procedure and few times and the part came out attached to the end of the tube. Pretty slick.
Almost makes me think the IH engineers set up that valve part so that 1/2" OD copper tube method would free the stuck part. Nah, I don't think those guys were that clever :wink: .

Thanks Eugene, I just now caught this. I copied Ron's tip into the How To forum so it will be easier to find for the next guy.
