That is strange. TM shows that clip was used on Cubs serial numbers 248124 and below.
Which is what the parts catalog says:
"CLIP, radiator overflow pipe, cub tractors w/serial no. 248124 and below"
I was always under the impression the overflow hose came with the long stripe tractors. A situation like Don's always brings up the question of whether the relevant part (the radiator) has been changed. What is the date on the radiator tag?
