How long for a 2cyl. diesel to warm up?

I put a new water temp gauge in my 720 diesel. The old one never worked. I've never seen this one rise off the bottom peg yet either, however the hardest this tractor worked since the new gauge is a 15 minute drive in high gear. Is it not going to warm up just putting around?

I guess I should pull the probe out, put some heat on it, and see if it rises. But I'm also wondering if I have a stuck open thermostat possibly. How long do these diesel take to warm up?

My last tractor was a "G" with M&w pistons and a few other goodies. It got to temperature quickly!

Thanks for the replies. I just took the thermostat housing off. The thermostat wasn't stuck open....it was gone! No wonder it was keeping cool. I bet the old gauge worked too. Not bothered about that though, I freshened up everything on the dash anyway.

Engine has to have a working 195F stat, wrapping with rags is only for bitter cold winter operation.

I agree, rags should not be used unless needed.

My 70 lifted off the low temp mark which I think is 140 after idling for about 15 -20 minutes at 800-900 rpm. The thermostat was new last year. It never warmed up before that unless worked hard. I'd replace the thermostat.

Put something around the radiator screens and that will warm it faster.

Does it have a thermostat?

If not, or colder one, put a 195 in it if possible.
