All 3 of my Cubs have the overflow tube broken off and this may not be a correct police type fix it certainly worked and can be done with the hood on.Drilled a 9/64 hole in a 1/4 inch bolt and a jam nut on the outside of the neck.The bolt fits right in the broken tube and the threads help hold the tube in place.
I like it! A nice fast fix for an annoying problem on so many cubs. A copper drain pipe or a rubber hose directing the water below the radiator is much preferred over no drain where water runs down the radiator and rusts the lower radiator bolts or is thrown back over the engine by the fan.
That I like Supper cool Why I did not think of it I will never know have to give you an A + on this

Very good how to you've made there Bear.
I like it since there's no heating involved to add to the problem plus you can do this with the hood on.
I'll need to look mine all over and see if this is something that needs added.

I like farmer fixes because you need only ingenuity and basic skills...exactly my level!

Just in case you are a butterfingers like I can be occassionally, you might want to slip a shop rag in the radiator opening just enough to keep a stray bolt from slipping from your fingers and falling in. Naturally you will want to remove the rag once the bolt is tightened.
Very ingenious, I like it
Looks like a neat idea, and mine is broken off at that same spot too. Only problem with that is I have a low pressure pressure cap and it would get in the way. Maby I could grind down the head of the scres some so the cap would go past. May have to try it this spring.
I aagree with boss. All these good ideas and fixes and I never thought of a one. My hat is off on this one and many others.

I'm tired of soldering that copper tube, hoping it will stay in place. Thanks, Bear!! Sounds like a permanent fix.

Gonna put this tip to use in another place. Crankcase ventilation on a Bobcat skid steer, Wisconsin VH4d engine. $41.00, air horn adapter, which simply fits between carburetor and the air cleaner to carburetor hose. Hose from crankcase fits into the side of the air horn adapter.
Air horn adapter, which is formed in one piece, broke. Replaced it. Broke again.
I have an excuse. CRS.
