Water temperature

Post by John » Thu Jul 21, 2016 4:58 pm

Having trouble with the water on my 990
Had a new gauge and sender unit and the temp started to go up after a while then when right to the top. Got a original DB GAUGE AND THAT did the same. Then I felt the water in the radiator it was hot at top just enough to bare but cold at the bottom
I ran the tractor for about 35 mins going up steep hills to get here hot

Can any one help

If the gauge shows hot when the top of the radiator is hot and the bottom cold, then I would suspect a blocked radiator. Remove the radiator hoses and try to flush the radiator in the direction from bottom to top. A radiator cleaner can also help, but flushing is the only way to get the dirt, that the cleaner has soften, out from the radiator.
