Temperature gauge Thermostat

Moving on now. I've now got a working oil gauge on my 8N and also replaced the broken one on the new 2N and got it working. It shows 25#s. I've yet to use this 2N. Needs a muffler first.
So now I would like to add inline thermostats and inline temperature gauges. Doesn't look like there is a whole lots of working room with the hood on. Guess the hoods have to be removed to do the job? I'm also thinking the temperature gauge should be closest to the engine. Will that cause much of a delay in the thermostat being farther away from the engine?
I know every body here recommends having an inline thermostat, I haven't gone out an looked at that many Ns but I've looked at some. So far I've never seen any of them with one installed. Do most of you also find that to be the case.

Here are the pics I got from GB. Thanks again to Hobo and Gary for the information. I did mine (well, had a machine shop drill and tap the head for me!) and it works great. Even added cylinder head temperature sensors just for kicks.













Here is a YouTube video link of my new head with the temperature sensor installed in the head along with my cylinder head temperature gauge.

Buy a new upper hose that is more supple. Put the thermostat in it on the bench and then put it on the tractor. That's what I did.

You can drill a hear with out the boss no problem...

The reason I still have the pix and instructions is GB mailed them to me.. My puter crashed and I lost them... Dunk had it hosted on his site but we lost him also...

I added a Temp. gauge to my 8N by drilling and tapping a freeze plug. Easy to do and has been working great for many years.

I wouldn't had thought a freeze plug would have enough metal to do that or enough room since they say there is not room for a block heater there

This subject interests me as I have thought about installing a temp gauge as well. I Googled it and found several references to "Hobo's Temp. Gauge Install" but only 2 pics were available. Did anyone save this post with directions along with the pics that they could send me? Thanks.

I definitely run thermostats. But agree that most I see are missing them. My '50 didn't have one and ran fine. The '52 didn't either but truly overheaded. Flushed block and installed tstat, everything is good. All theory aside.

Most drill and tap the head for a sender though. I don't have temp gauges on any Ns.

Closer look, I think I can install both inlines on the 2N with the hood on. Then probably pull the Generator on the side mount to get in there. If I was to tap the 8N head with a side mount would the generator get in the way? I just built an 8N engine and tapped the head for it. I guess it could also be done without pulling the head. But looking at the 2Ns and 9N they done have the flat spot on the head to tap out. Would have to install an 8N head to go that route.
So, would I be moving the thermostat out to far putting an inline temperature gauge in closest to the engine?
