Removing the radiator was a big help. And easy to do. Thanks for that suggestion.


1. Having a hard time getting the radiator back on with sufficient clearance for the fan blades. When I push the fan through by hand the blades just barely rub against the overflow tube. I've got the radiator shimmed to where it is almost beyond perpendicular and may be leaning toward the front of the tractor a tiny bit. What should I do to insure proper clearance.

2. Just above the "smile" shaped hole where the pump mates with the block, there is a 1/4 inch hole. No bolt could possibly go there but it must be meant to be open because the gaskets are cut with a hole in the same spot. What is the hole for?

3. On the metal face plate there is a 'thumb' sticking out about four o'clock (mounted) with a nut welded on it. What's that for? The only thing I can think of is a vestigial mount for generators?? (I have an alternator.)

4. Got the fan/pump installed today. Put the radiator back on and the hoses. Added straight water for testing purposes (don't want to waste my antifreeze). When I filled the radiator, even without pressurizing there was a leak coming out of the top between the face plate and the block. I pulled everything off again and DOH! I forgot to put on the gasket between the faceplate and the block. Scraped off the old gasket and cleaned up the block face and quit for the day. Miller time.
