I'm out in the barn working on the 154 and take off the top hose for the radiator. It was stuck to the block when I brought it home. I look down what should be the thermostat housing to see no thermostat. So my question is, do these run a thermostat and if so, any part number for one? Is there an automotive one I can use? Thanks.
No thermostat. The system is a thermosiphon type system, as opposed to a water pump/pressurized system.

Thanks Don. I had a single cyclinder diesel that operated the same way. At least that is one less thing I need. I am getting quite a list together. I am now realizing that tha PO either really did not know much about this tractor or just told big fibs.
Since I already have the heading of "Another Newbie Question", I am going to ask a few more. If you all don't mind... Here is the list of what I know of so far that I need for the tractor.
1- Air inlet hose from filter housing to carb.
2- Air filter
3- Upper radiator hose
4- PTO drive pulley, (mine the hub spins inside of the pully)
5- Both ideler pulleys for the mower deck
6- New hydraulic hose to the cyclinder under the tractor
7- Throttle cable
8- Head light bulbs
#5 I believe I can come up with. #6 and #8 are no problem. #7 I am going to try to make my own as the price I heard was out-ragous for this piece. However #1-4 I could use some advice as to where to get them. Thanks for all your help, and I promiss I will learn quick so I don't keep asking these dumb questions.
Problem is I have no housing, or cable. Just throttle lever.
You should contact Hamilton Bob, a forum member from the Cinci. area. He's a great source for used parts for # series lowboys. His Ph. #: 513-582-8424 E-mail: email@example.com
LOL . . . now that's funny there.
I've even bought a new throttle assy that is wrong and pried the "pinch-point/clamp" at the throttle end so I could use the housing/cable.
Just a thought . . .
BTW, Hamiltonbob is great to do business with.
