Hey all,

I have a '98 CC 7265.
The radiator cap is Cub Cadet MA-68201-01813 and lists for generally over $40.00!

Does anybody know why a simple radiator cap would be so expensive?
I've been having overheating issues where the engine will force all the water out of the radiator past the cap and then start to overheat. I think that is a head gasket leak but haven't tested the water yet for CO.

I have an aftermarket radiator cap on it now but wonder if it is not holding pressure and there's really not a head gasket issue. (hope,hope).

Ideas other than just go buy the right dang cap?

I see you posted last August so I am wondering how you made out. I am having the same problems with my 7235. I just put on a generic cap from the car parts store cuz my gasket was bad but had nothing to do with overheating. It still overheats and when the gauge gets high it sprays coolant from the overflow tank. My next step may be to pull the radiator and have it cleaned.
If you solved your problem let me know what you did.
