I do think the add-on hose idea is daft, just put the drain where it won't pour all over the steering linkage to start with, and you don't need that POS hose that I lost in a week...

Yep, its on a Cub and when I went to turn the yellow PLASTIC cover piece it flew of the end exposing a couple o rings. I was not being rough with it. If this is what a couple of the other fellas have had good luck with them I'm guessing the manufacturers have cheapened them up a bunch !!! Today I measured for a nipple and plug. When I went to remove the base part of the plastic "gizmo" it was not threaded tight either, just turned out by hand. I need this thing to work, so I'm glad I found out before I had to jack around with a warranty claim. Thanks for the feedback.
You don't say whether this is a cub or not, If it is or a husgavarna make sure it is tight were it screws into the block, then when out of warranty get rid of it and put a long nipple with a cap on. Kohler bought alot of engines under warranty because of those plastic nipples coming apart,

Sorry you're underwhelmed by the construction, hard to get used to the new junk when were all used to playing with well built stuff from 30 yrs ago.

I see one of the fellas said his grille had sagged from engine heat...
I haven't got my brothers in-fared reader yet (should see him over the 4th) I still plan to check temps before and after adding the cooler. I know we have better engineering and technology than this... but obviously the new way is all about "just in time and just enough to get out of warranty"
