Temperature sensor

Postby GBuford4372 » Thu Jul 23, 2020 10:58 am

Can someone post a diagram or describe where the temperature sensor is on a ym2010. I think I found it on the side of the water pump? But want to make sure. And what is the operation temp of this engine? Ballpark?

And also, is there a way (without temp gauge) to know if water pump is working? Like a hose I can check to see if water is circulating?I have a gauge coming...

Looks like this. https://www.hoyetractor.com/PROD/TS-1470.htm

Don't get burned but you can run it with the cap off. You can crank it cold with cap off and let it run until thermostat opens. At that time you will see water circulation in the radiator.

Ok, I believe that pump is working, due to the fact that water is circulating. Problem is, I believe thermostat is open, it start circulating as soon as you start the tractor. What will be the effects of thermostat being open all time?

If the thermostat is open when cold it will just take it longer to warm up in hot weather and may never in cold weather.

Ok. I got my new thermostat installed. And now the temp doesn't get above about 135ish. That doesn't seem right to me. Now, my thermo is stuck open I believe, or it doesn't have one, which I have seen before. Any suggestions?

One more thing to note, temp gauge is bottomed out around 110 degrees while idling. With cap off, a thermometer is reading 145 or 150. Should there be a difference, or is the temp gauge faulty?

I think I would put it to work, load it, and see what your gauge shows.

Is it possible to install your thermostat more than one way?

I screwed the old one out, and new one in. Now, I wasn't sure about the adapter that came with it. So I tried it with and without, both seemed to be the same. the adapter seemed to just not let probe go so deep. Both screwed in the threads that were there.

Original threads are 16 mm X 1.5.

My suspicion was correct about gauge. Boiled water in a cup, stuck in a fish fryer thermo, and my sensor at the same time. Fryer thermo read 210ish, and my guage read around 175. 35 degrees off.
