I have had the thermostat stick on the 8700 before while disking. Didn't take long for water to boil out the overflow of the radiator.
Dad overheated it on the blower one time. Got so hot it stopped. After he let it cool off it started right up. Found that there was a hole in the bottom of the radiator and not one drop of water in it. Drove it to the shed and dumped the oil. Fixed the radiator, put in new oil and filter. No problems since then and this was over 3000 hours ago. Doesn't burn oil and doesn't have any more noticable blow by then it did before the overheat.
Does it push water out the overflow when working hard? If it does then it could be a head gasket issue. Any water in the oil?
