farmallcub1951 lower radiator tank

Postby farmallcub1951 » Wed Jan 21, 2015 11:00 am

I just acquired a 1951 Cub. the lower radiator tank had a crack in it and was welded as long as there are no leaks I should be OK I hope. has anyone had to weld one that was cracked?

Welcome to the forum! Not sure where 00000 zip code is located :lol: but welcome anyway.

A cracked front bolster is not a good thing, but if it's welded and not leaking at this point, it's not going to affect anything. If it ever gives you any trouble, you'll probably want to replace it. There are plenty of people who have Cub parts for sale.

Feel free to look around the site and make yourself at home... :coffee:

I have several that were welded by previous owners. All hold water, and function.

I have one that has been cracked and brazed. Doesn't leak. Not sure when the repair was done, years before I purchased the tractor. I have owned this tractor for 15 years.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I have one with JB Weld. There is no water pressure so a good weld should do fine.
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.

Research this site using the headings at the top of page and it will show all the preventative maintenance for your cub plus a lot of other information. It's a good place to spend a little time to get familiar with your cub. Enjoy.

Is my 1951 cub a positive ground?? The wire on the negative post of the coil goes to the distributor. Does that make it a negative or positive ground?

I forgot to mention it is still a 6volt system. As I mentioned the negative post on the coil does go to the distributor

Originally, the early Cubs like yours would be positive ground, meaning the positive battery cable goes to ground . If that is what you have the positive post on the coil does go to the side of the distributor.
