Have a 1974 disel 580 B which I bought a year ago and only has 1574 original hours on it. The temp. gauge is colored orange, green, and red. It has always run between yellow and green, or sometimes a little on the green side. However, the last few weeks after 10 minutes or so it has started to go to between green and red (showing hotter than usual); sometimes a little to the red side.

I have taken the raditor cap off when the needle shows hot, but I don't get that steamy excessive pressure, no boiling water.

What should I start checking first???????

Thank you inadvance for your assistance. David

I just went through this on my 730 and did a lot of extra work. Keep it simple and start by replacing the sending unit.

That's exactly what mine was doing and a new mechanical gauge showed everything was fine.

Fan belt! It should be tight enough to turn the engine a little with the fan.

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
