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.

The squeaky wheel may get the grease but it's usually the first to be replaced!

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.
