Overflow tube in new radiator

Postby Command52 » Mon Sep 13, 2021 4:00 pm

Is there anyone that sells the radiator with the Overflow tube all ready installed I see some of them have a metal piece sticking out three or four inches and some have the rubber tube but I would like as it was original have not measured yet but looks like I will probably have to replace the radiator if this one is too tall

I bought one of these and paid $22 good hard cash for it and it doesn't even go close to fitting....
Cripes - I thought I'd never get one.

The long stripe Cubs came with a rubber overflow tube, attached to a short metal tube. As such, replacement radiators are made to match the latest tractors. Too bad they don't follow the rest of the specs too closely.

I installed one of TM's replacement overflow tubes. The upper end needed to be cut to length, after which it fit perfectly. This was a number of years ago. I can't speak to what they currently have.

I have used the clancy radiators and used high temp epoxy to connect the tube instead of sodering. I am not very good at that and I did not want to overheat it while sodering and cause problems in other areas the new radiator. There is no pressure and it has worked well.

I made one for my F Cub out of steel brake line with a new Clancy radiator.

I like that epoxy idea! Some guys at DSCF soldered one (from TM Tractors) on my last Clancey a few years ago, and it was difficult to get the solder to "stick", even after cleaning, sanding & using flux. Thanks!

I too love that epoxy idea. On Cubs with the steel overflow tube I use the neck piece as well so cap sits right. I like the Clancy, but fit isn’t as good as it used to be. Still all brass and copper at least.

I got a new clancy radiator too and used steel brake line Smokey. had i known TM had one even if some here say it doesn't fit well it would have been easier than making one from scratch! soldered with a brass bushing.

I bought the stuff to do that on mine awhile ago but have yet to do it. I don't remember where I put the stuff so I need to buy them again, if I. Ant find the correct stuff in my hardware. With the price of stuff when I bought it and even today it's more than a $0.05 fix these days.
