Hi! This may sound dumb,but here goes.I have a WD-45 and a little "B", both having the same kind of gage. Both of them have the same readings when cold and after they have been running awhile.Here's the stupid part. Now I know it's cold in WI, but both or them read below the little orange tick mark that says freezing, and after running for twenty mins or so they don't reach the green, even when I block off the air flow through the radiator, and in the summer, they have the same readings??? are they this way on all tractors or are mine messed up?? even in the summer after I've been working them they hardly ever reach the green.I know my antifreeze is O.K. ????? ????? ????? joe..

I have a WD that does exactly the same thing. In the middle of summer if I'm brush hogging it might barely make it into the green.

HI Joe

I run a few Allis tractors , the only time they run too cold is in the winter. Temp around 20-30 or colder. I have to cover the rad screen, to get them warmed up. Most of the temp gauges on my are not too easy to read at 8'. So I go by the center, they are all set to read normal hot at the center( 185-200). I have found if it is 85 or hotter in the hay field they can get hot but takes about an hour of baling ( thats the baler wagon etc. hilly ground, a lot of work for 35HP). So I have to make sure the Rads are cleaned often. I looked at a picture of one on e-bay. I would say 50% of the time my run at around 130-150 , 15% below ( winter) 35% above. Baling and brush hogging is about the only time they get too warm.

Make sure the rads are near full. To Test temp gauge .
Cover rad when hotter out , WATCH CAREFULLY see if temp goes up should be about 15-20 min if about 90 outside too get hot , water also runs down the rads if too warm , and would cool it some to. If I see water coming out of the top I watch to make sure she is running at and ok temp.

Good Luck!!

I have the same problem here in NC. Even on 95 degree, 95 percent humidity NC Summer Days pulling a bushhog through heavy grass, my '50 B just barely hits green.

I have been told that the radiators on these tractors are about twice as large as they need to be, so they are tough to get up to operating temperature even with a thermostat.

I've been told not to worry about it - just enjoy the tractor.

Radiators were probably sized to cool the tractor on a 110 degree day with the engine running full throttle at full load, with the radiator half blocked with mud and or hay chaf and maybe with the coolant level a bit low just to top it all off. It may be difficult but it would be better for the engine if it ran up to temp. Try blocking the radiator completely so no air can go through it. Older examples of these models had adjustable lovers infront of the radiator to do this.
