    Default B7100 water temp guage, the way they should have come...

    I couldn't stand letting this thing get so hot it whistles anymore, just too close for comfort! Pretty simple to install, the radiator hose adapter came from Ebay, around 25$,but I did need to trim about an inch off both ends. The gauge is from autozone, 17$. Between the gauge and the porch screen wrapped on the front of the radiator it should be a little easier to manage these +105f summers!

    Nice job. I did almost the exact same thing, but I made my radiator hose adapter from copper fittings. I find that I can run my up to about 260 degrees before the whistle goes off. The radiator cap is about 15 PSI.

    Thanks guys! I got to go try it out today bushhoging and it was really nice seeing what's going on before it's too late. It hovered around 235-240 for most of the afternoon but as the chaff accumulated the temp gradually climbed until around 255 it whistled. I knew the rad was full of dust but I just wanted to see at what point it would steam over. Now I know how far to push it between rad cleaning. BTW the canned compressed air works great in the field away from the compressor!
