Super M -eastern Iowa Tractorcade

Postby mikes5785 » Wed Jun 13, 2018 2:02 pm

Just finished the eastern Iowa Tractorcade, and my Super M developed a miss today. Running in high gear part throttle climbing a grade. Cranking up on the throttle cleared it up for a while.

I’m not sure if the engine is getting warm enough to be considered normal operating temperature. The temperature gauge is nonfunctional as it never moves, however I can hold my hand on the radiator cap fairly comfortably after a 45 mile ride.

Is there a thermostat in the engine (What temperature should it be?) and is the radiator cap a pressure cap? If so what should the pressure rating be? I want to check these before I start with changing plugs or looking into the carburetor mixture
