Re: Universal 5411 Cooling

Switched hoses back to like the diagram in the manual. At start up and until the thermostat opened there is a lot less water out the exhaust ( only the water that is getting thru the small hole in the thermostat) when the thermostat opens the water increases.
Engine only runs at about 100F. Took it for a 1/2 hour run yesterday. When I brought the throttle back to idle position it went up to around 125F. Gave it a little throttle and within 4 or 5 seconds it was back to 100F ( with a lot of water out the exhaust).
I think the thermostat is opening too soon, a new one may be my next test.
