1. Thermostat was installed in the right direction.
2. Checked thermostat in a pan of hot water - it opened at the right temperature. (Pretty close, anyway - maybe a little high.)
3. Started tractor - no leaks.
4. Ran for a half-hour or so, grading my driveway, with no problems.
5. Checked radiator, and thermostat looked to be open - water moving nicely in radiator.
6. Parked, let cool - still no leaks.
It must have just been the radiator drain.
Only problem: the newly-installed temperature gauge doesn't register correctly - needle just barely rises off the lower peg (130 degrees F.), but from what I've read in the archives, that's a common problem. (Yes, the gauge works - I checked it by putting the probe in a jar of boiling water.)
