i had a new thermostat put in after realizing i never had one at all.
tractor runs at 200-230 during peak usage. good? bad? no signs of over boiling. all seems secure.
its just my gas tank is still making my gas bubble. seems pretty hot to me up on top.
ideas?

Too hot! Maybe a timing issue. Maybe a cooling system issue of some kind.

200 wouldn't bother me, but 230 sure would.

First step is to verify that the temperature gauge is accurate.

Yes. There should be a heat shield between the muffler and fuel tank. You do need it.

Verify correct ignition timing and proper operation of the mechanical advance mechanism.

Avoid gasoline with ethanol if at all possible.

there is a shield over the muffler exhuast pipe. its the tank itself exposed to the valve cover area that im suspect of.

It's hard for me to believe the heat from the motor is boiling the gas in your tank... (if that's what you're suggesting)
