over heat

I have a 1986 Thomas that uses a right angle gear drive for the fan. The gear box does require attention to lube levels. Fabricating a body scoop is a good addition. On my Thomas, the water pump failed and required replacement at $250 from Cat. The 3208 engines are a bit low on horse power and lots of foot energy is needed. Go to a hydraulic shop to learn about correction the no fan action with a turn. Frank
