    5065E getting HOT again - Couv

    Well Guys and Gals, My 5065E is giving heat troubles again.

    Runs fine for about 2 hours. Engine temp never gets above mid-range on the Engine Temp gauge. All the while, you can feel the heat building in the transmission case, floorboards, etc,

    After about 2 hours of pulling a 8 ft cutter in heavy brush, it just plain quits running. At that point, the starter is so hot it will not turn over. Even the FEL FRAME is so hot you cant leave your hand on it.


    Thought it was fuel oriented, so we changed fuel filters, have bled the diesel system so many times there is no paint on the bleed screws or the nuts on the injector lines.

    Radiator is full of water/antifreeze mix.

    Tranny/Hydraulic oil is full to the top mark on the tranny dipstick. The last time I had the oil drained, I cleaned the pickup screen near the PTO.

    Unit has 950 hours on it. 2012 Year Model.

    Any suggestions ?

    So it’s the hydraulic system again? I forget what the resolution was on your original problem.

    Welcome back

    Not remembering the back story..

    My first thoughts were..thermostat ,plugged or bad muffler(loose internals in muffler?). Have you cleaned the radiator..?? you'd be surprized how clogged the fins can get. Dust , then it gets wet , turns to mud and hardens..a thought..... ,iirc..internal hydro leaks create lots of heat..something I learned here @ gtt.
    I'll tag along for the ride...

    When the strainer in the fuel tank on my 5065E got clogged, the water temp gauge would run 3/4 way to hot, not straght up like normal. Were you able to get any tempature readings on the hydraulic system.

    Bucket up?

    As a new guy who bought a 5055e from a lawn mower shop, I sent my tractor back several times for OH issues. The lawn mower guys didn't know nothin... Somewhere I read that the hydraulics run constantly with the bucket full up, overheating the system. since I stopped bush hogging with the bucket rotated full up, problem has stopped. Could this be your problem? JD assumes us city boys have been tractor guys all our lives. Sorry if I have suggested something everyone else knows.

    I'll never understand why tractor operators that have FEL attached especially quick attach/detach models desire to operate tractor with boom raised way above the tractor hood. I find it difficult to believe that boom height has any affect on temp of hyd oil oil. Can anyone please explain how boom height or bucket rotated full up affects hyd oil temp especially if control valve is in neutral position??

    Back to couv's tractor a relief valve must be unseating due to faulty valve which is probably 3 pt hitch related which is creating the heat.

    Have you blown out the radiator?

    We have a 7130 we blow straw (roundbales) with for erosion control. Not only will the radiator screens get clogged up and need to be shaken off we have to take an air hose and blow through the radiator to get all the dust out of the cooling fins.

    A neighbor had a JD 2555 w/245 loader (easy to remove), I would see him mowing with the bucket raised, pulling a 15' batwing mower. I wanted to take the loader off for him

    The place sold this year and tractor/loader/batwing mower when with the property. The new owner (farm boy) takes the loader off to mow

    I think it's easy to understand, lazy, too lazy to remove the loader.

    The only time my 5075E overheats is when the radiator gets loaded up while bush hogging. If you have an 18+ 5E it has a screen in front of the radiator that collects the airborne crap so that when you start to overheat just pull the screen out and brush/shack the crap off and problem solved. IDK if that's your issue or not

    Make sure the fan belt is good and snug too. As dry and hot as it is in the South right now daily, possibly every few hours of cleaning will need to be done.. Even the air filter..
    I use a leaf blower..

    Just a question, is this a shuttle tractor or PR12/12?
