Replacement. Original was a pipe plug.

Those are okay unless you are driving thru something that would have a chance to turn it open and allow the radiator to drain.

Hi,
Below is a listing at TM Tractor showing the original style of plug, there is a pic of it in the housing on the page also.

If the housing on your Cub has been drilled and threaded to a bigger size plug hole, you will need a bigger size plug, if you want to put in a plug. :)

Hello Pap-

I was thinking how convenient that looked, then I rembered How many scrapes and gouges I've seen on the underside of my Cubs. Yeah, maybe low profile would be better!

Usually there's enough goop in the bottom of the bolster tank that those type of drains will clog up anyway.

Maybe back in the day when the tractors were filled with water and drained daily in winter to prevent freezing, but ever since the advent of affordable antifreeze...
