 Yanmar overheating?

The idiot light on my Yanmar 1700 lights up after a few minutes of light mowing to indicate overheating. The radiator is full and the overflow is 1/2 full. Top hose seems hot and overflow is cool. Any suggestions or should I just pull the radiator and have it rodded?

Also, can i add automotive type gauges to get rid of these idiot lights (mechanical gauges for temp, oil pressure, and charging?)

thanks

 Yanmar overheating?

Grey, CAREFULLY get it back to the point where the light comes on and quickly put a thermometer in the rad and check the temperature that way, also check and make sure it looks like you have good flow.

It could be a bad sensor, gauge, or even just a bad wire to the sensor. If the temp is higher than it should be then by all means have the rad checked and or repaired. Sometimes the rad just needs a good flushing to get rid of accumulated sediment, a garden hose to the rad, alternating between inlet and outlets until you get nothing but clean water coming out will often do the trick.

Best of luck.
