Ray,
Boiling the gas is known to happen in these.
I can remember it happening from the time we first got our 4000 in April of 64.
Plowing for winter wheat in August after we cut the oats was when I remember it the most back then.
I have it happen now when I rotary cut with a 6 foot Woods mower.
I have even seen the bubbles coming down the fuel line into the sediment bowl.
BTW, the motor never stops because of this.
Keith

i wonder if putting an insulation board over the heat shield will help? you know the kind, it sorta looks like styrofoam with aluminium film over it.
hmmm?

Bob,
You could try enriching the fuel mixture.
Ethanol gas (E10) will make the engine run a little leaner.

Make sure you have COMPLETELY cleaned the radiator fins. I like to use compressed air for this.

I would not put a foam panel under the tank. The gas is boiling because it is hotter than ~170 degrees. The foam products (I believe) will melt and possibly burn at those temps.

HTH
Keith
