I like a little warning before it boils over.
Can I add a temp gauge to a Super AV?
Where would the sensor go?
Run a wire from??

If it had one or can be added it would be down by the radiator on the right side if I remember right. NO wires

If it was a kerosene or distillate tractor there would be a temperature probe in the water inlet at bottom of left side of engine. The gauge was mounted above the governor housing, check manual should show the option for the kerosene/distillate tractors.

If you think you have a heating problem it is probably because the block is
plugged at the bottom near where the sleeves are the holes are about the size
of a nickle and they get plugged with junk and the coolant cannot flow down an
into the radiator therefor making the engine hotter than normal making noises
when engine is shut off. Removing the radiator and lower outlet from the block
uwsing compressed air and a stiff wire those holes can be cleaned and flushout
the junk. Replacing the sleeves in those engines you will find junk deep in
that area plugging those holes

This tractor never had one, it is gasoline powered, and I didn't see a good illustration of where one goes for Kerosine or distillate.

Looks like she'll be going in the shop next winter for a cleanout.

I'd still like to try to add a gauge, gives me peace of mind knowing she's not cooking.

What year is your tractor. I have a 1950 Super A and it has a temperature gauge. It's hard to see from the seat because it's up
quite high near the top part of the radiator under the hood. It works and mine never boils over even running hard for a couple of
hours.

its a 1948 super av
the manual says temp gauges only on Kerosine and Distillate fuel tractors. Can you post a picture of the sensor location on yours? I'm hoping there is a plug in a hole I can use on mine.

The kerosene tractors had a hole drilled in the flat in the lower water elbow going into the engine. With a gas tractor, if you don't block the radiator, and the radiator is doing it's job and removing heat from the coolant, the gauge will never show anything. I drilled my upper water elbow on my A and put the water temp gauge sensor there, it does indicate and shows how the engine is warming up. With my thermosyphon system the gauge gets up to the border between run and hot when it's working under load.

Temp guages were an option. Is there a pipe plug on the head towards the front that would be a great place. First you should
drain the coolant and fill with vinegar and run it for a couple of days the flush system then procede with your guage

Thanks, I'll give that a try.
