Did you have the belching problem before you tried the T'Stat? The drilled hole is a good idea.

FYI, I tested out the thermostat in a pan of hot water with a new candy thermometer. It opened at 170 degrees. I figured that was close enough, so I took it out to the garage, drilled two 1/8" holes in it, installed it, and refilled the radiator. I started it up, and ran it at fast idle for 25 minutes, and the temp gauge needle never moved off the bottom peg,(about 135 degrees) until I shut the engine off, and then it went up to about 150 degrees. Maybe this is okay, being it was 30 degrees outside, and the engine was just idling. If I would have been thinking, I would have put the candy thermometer in the radiator while I was running it to compare with the temp gauge.

Is she good this time? No pushing coolant out? I don't test every T'stat, but radomly check some, & have never found a bad one.

Never had any radiator problems with this tractor in the past, but never had a thermostat in it either. After the partial rebuild of the engine, I ran it for half an hour (without) a thermostat, drove it around, etc., with no problems, and the temp gauge needle never moved off the bottom. Will try testing the thermostat in hot water today for starters, and if it works okay, then drill a little hole or two in it to make sure the air gets bled out of the system when I refill with anti-freeze. Thanks.
