Do I need a thermostat in my tractor?
I just read that tractors don’t need thermostats. Gas engines don’t need a thermostat either, they just won’t run optimally at cooler engine temperatures, just like a diesel won’t. The engine temp needs to get up around 190*-200* to run most efficiently. If your’s will do that without a thermostat, take it out.
How do I know if my tractor thermostat is bad?
Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Thermostat
- Temperature gauge reading very high and engine overheating. The first and potentially most alarming symptom will be the temperature gauge reading high into the red within the first 15 minutes of your vehicle engine running.
- Temperature changing erratically.
- Coolant leaks around the thermostat housing or under the vehicle.
What would cause a tractor to run hot?
Low Coolant The simplest explanation behind a tractor that’s running hot is low coolant. Allow the engine to cool, then remove the radiator cap to check for fluid. If you need more coolant, be sure to add the same type that’s already in your system or switch out the antifreeze completely.
What happens if you put a thermostat in backwards?
If you installed the thermostat backwards, it would probably not open up enough to allow coolant to flow, and the temp gauge would shoot up into the far right range, the engine would overheat, etc. After doing its thing, the coolant flows through the upper hose to the radiator where it releases the heat.
Does it matter which way a thermostat goes in?
The shorter end (Arrow B) of the thermostat always points toward the radiator hose, and away from the engine. Therefore, the deep end (Arrow C) of the thermostat always gets installed going towards, or into, the engine.
Do you need a gasket for a thermostat?
Most new thermostats come with their own gaskets or rubber seal, but not all. So check that your new thermostat includes one; otherwise, buy one. Remember that you may need to apply sealant to the new gasket —check your vehicle service manual. Some thermostats come with a rubber seal instead of a traditional gasket.
Which is better Ford 8N or 9n?

Does 8N have live PTO?
Supporting Member. One disadvantage of the Ford N’s was, they are not Live pto and Live hydraulic. When you push the clutch in, they stop. The mower stops mowing and if it was raised, it lowers to the ground.
