Case L radiator overflow pipe

On the back of the L radiators there is a copper tube which runs from inside the filler opening down to the bottom of the radiator, on the outside of the radiator. It was clipped to the bottom of the radiator housing with some sort of small clip. I am rebuilding a radiator which didn't have that clip. Does anybody know what it looked like?

Thanks, Steve

Steve, On the LAs it is a small plate about two inches long, one inch wide, with rounded ends and about .100" thick. it has a hole for one of the radiator bolts, and another snug fitting hole to slip the copper tube through. This allows the positioning of the copper tube so it can drain out without getting all over the tractor. The copper tube has to be curved so as not to get in the fan (usually to the right side of the tractor) and through the plate mounted to the bolt of your choice at the bottom of the radiator. Give yourself lots of copper tubing to play with. ---Derrol in Texas---

Derrol, thanks for the help. Knowing what to look for, I found the "clamp" in a can full of screws, nuts, etc. that came off when I was trying to get one good radiator out of two leaky ones.

Steve, The old radiator tubes had a seam all the way down that was soldered. Heating and cooling of the radiator eventually loosens these seams for multiple leaks which are hard to fix. Best way is to "Bite the Bullet" and buy a new radiator core with seamless tubes. Last one I bought was $550, which included new gaskets, but pleased to say I have had no trouble with it. ---Derrol in Texas---

Today's Featured Article - Pitfalls of Tractor Engine Rebuilds - by Chris Pratt. The first pop after you have put the machine together with your own hands is exciting and pleasing. The whole experience can be marred if one moves too fast and makes too many assumptions that they can just use "as is" some parts they should be closely scrutinizing and possibly attended to. In such cases, rework makes what could have been a fun project turn into an irritant or even a nightmare. Minor Irritants To give you an example of an minor but irritating proble ... [Read Article]
