    Is the fan belt tight (ie not slipping any)? What about the radiator fluid level, it is full right? Maybe time for a new waterpump, some of the vanes/impellers could be broken. If all that's ok, maybe the radiator is clogged up? I guess you checked to make sure it has good airflow (fins not clogged up)? If they are clear, you might need to do a flow test on it to make sure it's not clogged up internally. Regardless, you need to keep the thermostat in the motor.

    We have a 360 DTC. We also have had some problems from time-to-time with it heating up ....

    Discovered it was the screen in front of the radiator. It is there to keep the debris out of the fins and it works. However, it gets clogged, the tractor cannot breath and it shows hot.

    The screen pulls out toward the side when you have the hood up.

    Farmtrac 360 DTC w/ FEL & subframe-mount BH

    Default Re: Farmtrac 360 DTC

    Purchased Farmtrac DTC 360 at auction in December 2011.

    Just finished repairs to make it safe to operate without further frame damage introduced by extreme shake & bake from backhoe attachment. Also had to repair clutch components in order to get PTO working.

    Per temp guage, running way hot (in the "red zone") when I was bushhogging today. I let it completely cool, let it idle at 800 RPM (PTO disengaged) for 1 hour -- needle indicated 75% of the "safe range". Water, oil, belt, fan all OK. Before I get into thermostats and water pumps, can anybody tell me what the pressure rating for the radiator cap should be? Existing cap has "Asiatic" characters on it, and the number "60" stamped on it. Part number, per parts manual, seems to be LG4074.

    Engine type is Misubishi S4L2-Y161GT (1.8 litre, 4 cyl, 38hp).
