This tractor never ran hot before. I'm pretty sure cw is advancing cause it raises rpms. Last night I was real tired so I didnt wright everything. I pulled the t-stat to see if it worked. It worked fine. (Im assuming you know how I tested it.) I'm not insulting your intelligence but the opposite is true. Taking out the t-stat will make the engine run cooler, well its suppose to. It just didnt in my case cause there is a problem. By not having a t-stat the water is flowing freely thru the rad constantly cooling down the h2glycol. This is if you have a properly working cooling system. Installing the stat causes the water to stop flowing enough to build back up the heat. With out a t-stat or even to cool of a t-stat can cause motor to run rich which leads to carbon fouling of the cylinder, valves and plugs. I know running your timing to retarted will or can cause the same thing and even overheat. These last 2 or 3 things may be whats wrong with mine. I'm gonna check timing and see where its at. I just got my timing lite. I'll report back. I started to post this the other day, or even a week ago, but had a family issue so I'm finally getting to it.
Thanks for all your help.
