I think I figured out why my 500 is running hot

I looked in the radiator and checked it before I filled it with water and it looked a little bad. After I got it home I decided to take it apart because it would not cool good pulling its own weight and I'm pretty sure this is why. When I would rub the rust and slime away from the cores, I could actually hear vacum release inside the radiator. Guess that means my bottom hose is good, right :)

Run your finger nail down the fins if the crumble or stay bent then its time for a new core. They ship ring nicely as you run your finger nail down them. try several areas.

How many bolts did you twist off? Hook a garden hose to the lower hose and try to get water to come up through all the tubes. Maybe you have rodded them before and it is old news to you.

belive it or not I didn"t twist off a single bolt, I took my time though. Like you said the next step is back flushing it from the bottom and lastling a rodding but I hope I dont have to go down that road.

Rodding the gunk out is generally an easy job and well worth doing. If it does not work, you are up for a re-coring, but that is also well worth doing of a good tractor like the 500 (or LA etc)

Today's Featured Article - Pitfalls of Tractor Engine Rebuilds - by Chris Pratt. The first pop after you have put the machine together with your own hands is exciting and pleasing. The whole experience can be marred if one moves too fast and makes too many assumptions that they can just use "as is" some parts they should be closely scrutinizing and possibly attended to. In such cases, rework makes what could have been a fun project turn into an irritant or even a nightmare. Minor Irritants To give you an example of an minor but irritating proble ... [Read Article]
