Farmall 560 Diesel

Ron Wallace I have a Farmall 560 diesel that just started over heating. I checked the antifreeze and it was where it was suppose to be. So I thought it would be the thermostat so I changed that but it didn't do the trick. Can anybody help me on what to look for and tell me what to do. The engine was overhauled two years ago. Help
rich4 If you haven't done it yet, clean the cores on the outside gently. If the radiator hasn't been boiled out and cleaned lately or never, then it would a good thing to have done.
jim If the cleaning doesn't help, fill radiator to overflowing, release water pump belt so water pump doesn't turn, then start cold engine. The water should not move or see any bubbles for about 1 minute. If it rises up right away you have a combustion leak, most likely head gasket. However, if you run it more than about one minute it will rise from warming so you have to take a look right away. Rev her up when checking.
