I changed points, coil and coil wire and now its been running just about into the red on temp guage. When it gets hot it spits and sputters under load. Would miss adjusted points cause it to run hot. It starts right up when cold. Or did something else happen at the same time i replaced the points and coil. Its a 6V system.

Thanks!

If you didn't change the timing, then the ignition system probably isn't to blame. You might consider that something else might have happened coincidentally -- coolant level okay, no debris clogging the cooling fins, water pump working, water circulating, no white smoke indicating coolant leaking into cylinders?

Good luck, and please let us know what you find.

lean setting will cause it to run hot.

and you might have retarded the timing a bit

My Jubilee would start and run OK until I put her under load on a warm day ...she would go red pretty quick...cleaned radiator cooling fins and now under the same load conditions she barely gets into middle green...

Points not set right can change the timing some. Did you set them at 0.025 as per the book?? Also how dirty is the radiator?? And also maybe the cooling system is clogged up or the thermostat is going bad. Ir as sound said running lean??

I set points to .025 I blew out radiator with air hose I can see thermostat open on the temp gauge. How do i check if water pump is circulating water properly? I will check carb and richen it up and see what happens.

Thanks For Everyone's Input!

Pull the radiator cap off then start it and when the thermostat opens you should see coolant moving. Another thing to check is make sure the fan belt is nice and tight. A slipping belt will slow down the fan and that can cause it to run hot also

Look back at the comments for the 860 PTO sputtering and some of the tips might be pertinant for you. Also look in the archives about the 800 series sputtering problems.
