I have a massey 135 with the perkins 3 cylinder gas engine. I have been using this tractor to disk a 1.5 acre field using my 8" lift disk. The tractor lately has been getting hot. After one lap, I can hear the gas tank "sizzle" and when I loosen the gas cap, there is some pressure built up. The tractor also will miss one time during this period. There is no temp. gauge on the tractor. Any ideas?

Before you ruin the motor, install a temp gauge and find out why the motor is getting hot!!!!!!!

Could be a bad water pump, low coolant, stopped up radiator, stuck thermostat, loose belt

My friends 135 mf, they let weed seed build up in front of the radiator and they had a temp gauge, Instead of cleaning the radiator, they just let it cool then back at it until it started burning oil like a coal burning freight train.

Cost a lot to have it rebuilt and for no reason, but lazy or lack of knowledge, just thought it would run for ever, but they paid dearly for their mistake.

Good luck and take care of the little tractor, these tractors can not take too much overheating.

Are your radiator or grill screens clogged up?
