Quadzilla Overheating question

I just had the motor apart to do a routine ring job. not that it needed it, but just to keep it fresh. anyways, before i took it apart it didn't overheat, now that i put it back in, its overheating, the water pump works fine, no leaks anywhere, anyone ever experience this? Im kinda baffled, any suggestions. thanks in advance

Re: Quadzilla Overheating question

i would think it would be an air leak...did you get all the coolant hoses hooked up good?

The only differnece between riders and animals is we arn't afraid of the vacuum cleaner.

Re: Quadzilla Overheating question

is it posable you have a air lock, maybe you need to check and make sure you nave all the air out of the cooling system, or maybe an air leek in the intake sys. that will make it run lean, which is hot

Re: Quadzilla Overheating question

Did you make sure the ring end gap was sufficient (.004"/inch of bore). The expanding ring could cause a lot of excess heat in the cylinder and cause a whole host of other problems. Other than than I would check for an air leak. A leak down test would tell you a lot, as well as a plug chop, with a new plug of course. Hope this helps.
