Ingersoll Rand 375 Shutdown due to overheating
Got a 375 that keeps shutting down when we are blasting on it.
Its overheating to the point that it starts "peculating" the coolant back into the reservoir tank.
A couple days ago I purchased a new thermostat.
Before installing it, I pulled the old thermostat out, reinstalled the housing and completely flushed the system out. I then added a radiator flush solution and ran the engine for the recommended time, then flushed out the system again.
I installed the new thermostat and ran the motor at idle for a couple of hours, not under a load though, because I took it out to the field "Chevron oil lease" and started blasting on a pipe for about 20 minutes and it shut down on me.
I pulled it back to the yard and its been shutting down on one of my guys all day today.
Read something about the orientation of the thermostat being installed backwards at the factory. Anyone hear of this??
Also what is the recommended type of coolant, local John Deere dealership only will tell me to "go ahead and come on in, we got it right here" But i have both kinds here.
