I would keep a close eye on your water temp. Even though your running stock rpms im concerned that rad wont hold up. I know on the super cubs those rads are bigger and do a good job. I know with my diesel with all the work done im about 190-215 and egts are about 1300-1400. You wont have to worry about egts since your stock for now.

I put the rad over to one side so I can add a second one if needed. The fans will run full all the time.

My hole for rad including fan is 11 x 11 by 3 1/2 thick not much room. I hope the double fans will do the trick. I have a friend running this setup with a yanmar for a few years. Got the gages conected and wiring is done and rad is installed( still need to put the clamps). My list gets smaller..... next is install drive shaft and clutch. I prefit everything a month ago so should go well. Been waiting on my spring and it arrived this morning.

worked on the fuel tank today. I want  the tank out front and looking like chrome. I decided to cheat a bit. I took a old round metal tank I had kicking aorund and covered it in stainless that I buffed. I cut end caps and just spot welded them in place. I cut out holes for the neck and fuel outlet. Still need to add a hole for return. The tank looked a bit used lol but the inside is clean and galvinized. I powder blasted it and gave it shot of paint before covering it.  Time for a beer

Did you fit the clutch when you fit the engine in?

 Chris I did a basic dry fit to make sure things would fit and align.I used bolts holes made in the flywheel for a pulley for studs with nuts for clutch pins.  I was able to get it in today but still need to make and install the clutch leaver bracket and make a new linkage rod. Its  real close to work around the steering box.

Yup almost there Chris. I hope to have my rims from miller this week to add the finishing touch. Each winter I take on a new project and every year I think this one will be a breeze lol and they never are. I end up with five times the hours and money than expected. Chris you don't build a tractor you manufacture one lol. I can't imagine the hours you have in it. Someone told me once  "you need to eat that elephant one bite at a time."  Last year I built this Triumph Spitfire and tell you what I did alot of eating lol...

Very cool job Chris... I guess building tractors is easy stuff compared to your regular work. Its nice to have a diversion from the job.

Fired it up today for the first time. I ran it about 20 minutes at 2500 rpm and my temp gage never went above 150. This was my biggest concern  my little rad. Under load for sure it will heat more but I am pretty confindent the rad will handle it. I need to shorten the clutch pins just a bit they sometimes tap on the clutch lever.

Is 2500 stock operating for your engine? You can speed the engine up by opening your throttle screw all the way up. Once your able to drive it around you can always play with fuel but with it not having a turbo i wouldnt get crazy with it. Good to hear its up and moving.
