got the $400 dollar 425 running today, changed the oil filter, cleaned the carb, new fuel line and removed the old gas.
new battery and cable ends . it started right up and runs amazing! drives great and i love the power steering.
now the temp gauge after 10 mins of running is only at the bottom of the green. opened the cap and it doesnt look like coolant is moving but its warm in the rad
lower rad hose is cool to the touch
is the water pump working? i dont think the thermostat is stuck cause heat is getting to the rad.
