NAPA Replacement Radiator

Postby tomcough » Tue Feb 18, 2020 7:58 pm

Do any of you have experience with Cub replacement radiators from NAPA? The specs say they are made by “Navistar”.

I just put a new Clancy in last week. My only complaint is the drain hose fitting on top. It should be an elbow, it’s tight up against my hood but works.

I used a new Clancy in my 68 overhaul. I’m a stickler to try and keep things original though. So I soldiered in old filler neck and steel overflow pipe onto the Clancy. Didn’t like the thoughts of the pipe nipple and rubber hose. But other than that, a great replacement.

. . .

I don't know anything other than what I read on the web.
It seems unlikely that they are actually made by Navistar. Maybe they are supplied through Navistar? The pictures look a lot like a Clancy.

Now wait a minute. With all your fabricating skills, I wouldn't expect to hear this kind of statement from you. :lol: Still, glad it worked for ya.

Yes, the Clancy radiator made in Limerick, Ireland, are the way to go. Found right here on one of our sponsor's pages: http://www.tmtractor.com/new/co/671fp.htm

Had I known/paid attention before I put the hood back on I would have changed it. I'm sure the hood will be back off soon enough :lol:

I bought a after market one had it installed, running and everything then put the hood on and was too tall and the dog legs would not bolt up and had to take it back off and buy a Clancy but it was double the price and I had to pay shipping to return the other one.

Here’s the elbow the late model factory radiator has. It will probably get switched to the Clancy soon.

Val, with your skill with a torch, this is a no brainer. Go for it.
