...Well, one way to know you are overheating is when the |
piston sticks to the side of the cylinder. Another way you
would know is when the whole bottom of an aluminum exhaust
manifold falls to the road!
The Indian 401 motor is the same engine that Ace made since
1922 except for the oil pressure that came in in 1927.
They didn't overheat normally.
----- ORIGINAL MESSAGE FOLLOWS -----
When Indian brought out the new Model 401 circa 1928, the
earliest of them overheated in very hot weather.
The Dealer solution to this was to dismantle the top ends,
and bore the cylinders out by an extra thou or so ....
Apart from this digital temp gun, how do you know it is
overheating ? Maybe you just need one that reads lower ??
