It's not a plugged or dirty radiator, I checked that early on. The impeller on the water pump is connected & works fine. The water pump was the second thing I looked at after the thermostat.
I suggested that he buy a new one since we had the thing tore down that far & it looks old. If it were to start leaking a few months from now we'd hafta do the job all over & he definitely doesn't want to do that again.
It's not an indication problem: the tractor is getting hot, no bout adoubt it.
I don't know if the fan is on the right way, I will check that. The fan shroud is on.
My buddy happens to have one of those infrared thermometer devices, so I will do the advised check. I hadn't thought about the head gasket having a hole not punched out. Good tip.

Thanks for the advice about watching the coolant flow & looking for bubbles--that tip just saved my buddy a few bucks cuz now he won't have to buy a test kit.

It might be until a few days into Oct. before he has enough money to get the parts, but I'll keep everyone posted on the results.

Thanks for the advice guys. Several of the tips I wouldn't have thought of for a long time. Or in the case of a hole not punched in the head gasket, not until I took the head off.
