Electric Wire Clips

Postby ParlowMillFarm » Mon Nov 14, 2016 11:50 am

Folks,

Does anyone have photos of the wire clips that are parts nos. 363502R1, 3635903R1, 363500R1, and 363505R1, as well as the clips welded to the bottom of the gas tank?

These don't seem to be commercially available so I suppose that means that there is a readily available non-IH substitute or there are easy to make.

Here's # 9. It is 1 1/2" long. I can get you pictures of the others when I get home off Walt. Your not gonna try and weld some to the bottom of the tank are you?

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Hi,
Here is a pic of 2 of the clips under the platform, they fasten on 2 of the platform bolts.
I think all the clips under the hood are the same width as the clip on the right under the platform.
I can't get pics too well of the clips under the hood without removing them, just the one at the dash while it is in place.
There is another clip under the hood, forward of the 3 you have marked in your pic. It attaches at the 1/4 inch hole in the hood, above the oil filter. There should be a hole there on a 1949 Cub.
The clips at the front and rear of the 4 along the hood, have nuts welded on them for the screws.
If the 2 clips welded under the gas tank are gone, you might have to not have them, not safe to weld on a gas tank.
Chipmakers pic is a wire wrap, that goes at your arrow by the clutch pedal. It's not a clip that bolts onto anything.
I think Ken that restored the 1948 Cub last year, made the clips from sheet metal. :)

Somebody said they had "glued" those clips on with a dab of JB Weld. I don't see why they couldn't be reattached with any good epoxy. Just make sure both parts are absolutely clean.

Barnyard, thanks for the link to the TM clip.

Chipmaker, I can't figure out how to attach the clip you show. I don't think I'll weld it. Although I'll be cleaning out the tank to redcoat it, I do remember my father telling me a story 50 years ago about someone who tried to weld a gas tank and blew his head off (funny about things you remember). So maybe I'll forgo the tank welding. Glen mentioned that the clip you have is a wire wrap, which makes sense.

Glen, I have the clip you mentioned just above the oil filter too. The one I have looks like the rear clip you have under the platform. They seem pretty simple so I'll just make a few.

Jim, good point, For the weight the wire might have, I'm sure a modern adhesive could be used on a non-restoration quality clip if it is needed under the gas tank.

Thanks to you all

John

I used epoxy to bond the wire clip to the tank of "Uncle Bob" several years ago and it's still holding. But in order to give me more gluing surface, I made a special bracket by making the end that attaches to the hood a "T" shape about 1/2" x 2". The different configuration is not noticed from the outside.

If memory serves me, and verify before attempting.
To weld a tank drain the gas, fill with water, make sure it's good and rinsed then head outdoors to weld.
Water and welding are good for rust, that's probably a good enough reason not to do it. I do think the tabs are welded to the metal away from the tank itself however.
If it don't go, chrome it.

Fill it full of soapy water, but don't drain it. Then tack your clips on. The water & soap will keep you safe.
