    Hello, sorry to jump on an old thread.

    I have exactly the same Digger in the UK and Our symptoms are identical. The engine can be left running for long periods and the temperature gauge stays in the middle however once the hydraulics operate it starts to run hot.the old exhaust had rotted under the radiator so we changed that. I had a look at the in tank hydraulic filter/screen and it seems fine, how do I access the other filter (pictured “Y”)?

    we really are pulling our
    Hair out here . Any help greatly appreciated :)

    Watch out with using insulating exhaust wrap as that’s actually what caused my over heating issues!
