Have a 1974 disel 580 B which I bought a year ago and only has 1574 original hours on it. The temp. gauge is colored orange, green, and red. It has always run between yellow and green, or sometimes a little on the green side. However, the last few weeks after 10 minutes or so it has started to go to between green and red (showing hotter than usual); sometimes a little to the red side.

I have taken the raditor cap off when the needle shows hot, but I don't get that steamy excessive pressure, no boiling water.

What should I start checking first???????

Thank you inadvance for your assistance. David

Fan belt! It should be tight enough to turn the engine a little with the fan.

I just went through this on my 730 and did a lot of extra work. Keep it simple and start by replacing the sending unit.

That's exactly what mine was doing and a new mechanical gauge showed everything was fine.
