All of my long stripe cubs have pressure caps on them , no problems with them what so ever,more hp may have needed a little more cooling , however I would not use one on a early model cub

Can't agree with you more, the reason both my old cubs have had their 7 pound pressure caps that were installed by the previous owners modified.
With the ratio of cooling capacity (onboard coolant reserve, core size, and air flow) to cubic inches of displacement, one would think the engineers had a good grip on the maximum amount of heat that could be produced under full load on a hot day but as previously brought to light, horsepower hungry attachments not originally available and thin air in the mountainous regions caused the engineers to rethink the possibility of the points between hot and boiling had become too close, making the change to the pressurized cooling system.
