  8. yea it was 3/4-10 with alot of tape and even poured a couple cups of antifreeze in it over a couple daz, and no leaks so it SHOULD be ok since there isnt alot of pressure right yes it is a tapered thread but bolt is tight? anyway we`ll see lol can alwaz go bigger napa only had an 11/16 so i had this at home,anyway i`ll let u know should have it back together and fired up next week. thnx

  12. ok NEW PROBLEM i believe i have a 1948 cub ENGINE SER.# FCUBM 43465 TRACTOR SER.# FCUB 43292 c-60 motor....so steiner is the one that told me what year and model thru those numbers...everybody saz i need a 351878R91 or 351878R92 or 351878R93 radiator to fit my tractor and they also say those radiator numbers will fit ALL CUBS between 1947 thru the 70`s most of the new rads say they are 17 1/2 inches tall, well if thats to the top of tank then that matches mine, but they ALL say 14 1/2 inches wide """"this is where we run into a kanumdrum"""" my radiator is ONLY 12 1/4 inches wide and the brackets that hold the rad are ONLY 12 3/4 inches wide outside to outside, and by he way the bracket width is the same on the top and bottom meaning they are pretty square, so im including pictures so u can see the measurements, and i would say that this means the 3 part numbers above ARE NOT the part numbers i need and can u please help me find out the right radiator for mine preferably an aluminum one? thnx in advance for any and all help again guys. p.s let me kno if u need any other info thnx
  13. ok thnx going to take off my hood today again and take all exact measurements thnx for info
  14. neither one of my tractors have a tag on it, he didnt say so probably is a drop shipper, ok so will u tell me if this radiator above which is an R3 will fit my cub engine ser. # FCUBM 43465? cause he doesnt take returns
  15. or where is my radiator part number i cant find? i did find these numbers today engine ser.# FCUBM 43465 and tractor ser.# FCUB 43292 then these sets of numbers around carb 251341R1 7.14.R and 351981R1 J.12.R if any of these help find out what radiator number i need to order thnx in advance guys
  16. ok guys see this radiator above, looks just like mine except is aluminum, i thought this was it and was going to buy but the seller saz wont fit mine can u help me figure out what part number i need so i can get the right one????????
  17. yea i believe the same thing with cereal lol ...........ok matt, even thou i kno this looks like an exact match (remember im new at this) where do i find these numbers to make sure they match up with mine? and the reason i ask is because ive found several but the numbers r 1 or 2 digits difference like 351878R92 or 351878R9 and so on r these different numbers as far as parts or r they just listing the basic number? thnx FITMENT Radiator, for tractors: Cub, Cub Lo-Boy. Includes mounting gasket. For Cub, Cub Lo-Boy. Replaces: 351878R92, 351878R93, 353903R92 Radiator Part Number 351878R92 (w/ Gasket)

  19. ok guys thnx for the input, im afraid im going to have to do something with this old rad. apparently it leaks like a siv:( so ethier stock or some kind of car replacement is going to be looked into? or repaired this thing is shot thou....i just got the 6 volt running today, new plugs,wires battery and carb fired right up but after 10 minutes of running u could tell it was getting hot and leaking everywhere lol,so this is my next project before i can mow my damn yard lol any tips and hints are appreciated. thnx bb
  20. sorry i forgot to put this info in both my radiators have overflow tues coming off the necks, so i guess those are also mutt parts? thnx bb
  21. ok guys i have 2 farmall cubs on here a 1948 and 1953 c60 motors in both...... my newest problem is rad caps, im trying to find the right ones and yes they r both different....the 1948 cub has a 7lb. cap on it and is roughly 1- 1/16" depth inside filler neck,2.22 od of neck and 2.09 tang to tang.............. the 1953 cub has roughly a 3/4" to 7/8" inside filler neck and 2.22 od outside neck, now i tried steiner they both look different than mine and the numbers didnt match up, and i also tried stant caps and theirs didnt look or numbers match ethier? now i kno i can just buy any old cap and it will probably work.......but i`d rather get the correct ones that look right fit right and have the correct pressure for my motor, so any ideas or leads appreciated and if u need anymore numbers or info just let me know thnx bb p.s stant saz cap#10228 is right and its not
