Side shields open or closed won't make much difference. I also don't trust infrared guns on rubber hoses.

Do what I said earlier: get it up to operating temp, and then stick the overflow hose in a jar with water and look for bubbles while you're working it hard. A few bubbles here and there is OK, but a steady stream is not good, especially if the intensity of the bubbles is proportional to the load.

Warmed tractor up & stuck overflow hose in jar. No bubbles. Ran for 1 hr. No spitting or spewing out tube. Ran another hour. Spit a little here & there under a load, but quit fairly quickly. One more hour. Began to spit more frequently & spewed a steady stream, but never "geysered" like it had before. Checked gooseneck temp w/infrared - 250 +/-. Lower hose (hard steel hose) - 220 +/-. Came back home. Quit spewing after I went to a higher gear on the road (I was just a couple hundred yards from shed). When I got home, only drops of water coming out of overflow tube, but could still see steam. Condensor & radiator covered w/pollen & dust. Blew them clean w/air. Could still see light steam out of overflow & a few water drops. Temps at gooseneck & lower hose had dropped. 190 top, 130 bottom. Also, top hose looked ballooned above gooseneck, normal size coming off top of radiator, if that means anything. Going back outside now to check on it.

Sounds like the heat can't be moved fast enough under load. Loose belt? Did you visually check for flow in the radiator with the cap off when the thermostat was open? The water pump should provide movement similar to a garden hose turned on pretty good at high RPM's.

Weird thought (cannot recall what your other thread stated) but do you think the radiator is "plugged"? Perhaps take to a shop in town and see if they can boil it out and test...

Could be I suppose. That thought crossed my mind. That may be the next thing I test.

I'll take a stab at it. I'm bushhogging on some pretty good sidehills right now. Looks like that would be a good test when hooked up to a dyno.
