Had a chance to do a little more troubleshooting on temp problem of the skid loader today. Thanks to mountain mechanic, nebfarmer, trint and seedcleaner for the help.
I put a new temp gauge sending unit on but I think what I did that helped most was blowed the radiator out really good. Used 1/4 inch break line bent into a short 90 degree angle at end with 150 psi of air. Let it run for 90 min the temp stayed at 190 degrees. The outside temp was only 46. Will be interesting to see how it does on a 100 degree day running all day.
Going to put some temp scans. Hope I can get them in the right order.
1. Radiator temp. shows a warm spot running across it. I will blow that area out more next time.
2. Thermostat housing temp. based on temp I think the thermostat was closed at the time.
3. Temp of top radiator hose leading from thermostat
4. Bottom radiator hose temp.
