Having heating issues, this engine is in a hay stacking truck. It "overheats" (maybe 185-190 degrees) and turns the check engine light on at speeds 50-55 (its max speed is 55), if you back off to 45 or so, it will cool down to 175 and run fine. Anything over 195 will put it in shutdown mode. I Put a new overflow tank and cap, its full of coolant, the radiator is clean outside all the hoses seem to be in good shape. It only has 1000 hours on it, and I'm not sure what else to check. Thanks

'I was amazed to find the engine I needed in minutes! Even more amazingly, it was less than half the estimated repair cost of the original unit!'

'We had a Mercedes engine in stock for over a year but were unable to sell it in Belgium - it was an unusual specification for generator use. Once we listed it on DieselEngineTrader.com, we sold it to a customer in England! We get regular enquiries from customers across the world.'
