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.

I had to get a new radiator for my B a couple months back. I took it to the local radiator shop to have it repaired. Turns out it was too far gone to repair, but the radiator shop got me an exact copy the next day! It was all brass and copper (just like the original) and was cheaper than the Steiner one. So if I were you, I would take it to a radiator shop and let them source a replacement.

several kinds and sizes
Have the block boiled out and also the steering housing! Mud builds up in cubs and THAT is the cause of overheating 99% of the time and not the rad.! 2 of my 6 had the same problem and the only cure was to take out and boil! ---- problem solved!
