My neighbor has a 2004 rhino 660. It overheated several times. I remember from when I had my rhino 660 I put a shroud behind it to pull more air through the radiator and it solved the problem. Do they still sell those things or is there a better way to stop the overheating now. I am at work so no I didn’t do a search yet. Just hoping some kind person will hit up this thread. Thanks Jerry

Don't leap off the "shroud" bridge just yet - there are multiple reasons for an engine to over heat especially on units this old. A damaged radiator, externally or internally. A bad thermostat (if so equipped?), a water pump with impeller damage, a bad radiator cap, or a cooling fan not working properly. These are things to consider checking before before assuming what fixed your Rhino will be the same fix for another - it may require "your fix" but check out the other items I mentioned first..

I know it’s clean. I know the fan runs. And I know the thermostat opened when burping the air out. I don’t know if everything works together correctly. If it was me the first thing I would do is get rid of the idiot light and replace it with a temp. Gauge that way he could test things with temp readout. I paid 50$ for my shroud it was a huge improvement over stock. These radiators are always collecting dirt and mud the shroud helps pull air through the open holes instead of pulling from around it. Money well spent.

"These radiators are always collecting dirt and mud the shroud helps pull air through the open holes instead of pulling from around it." Oh, guess I forgot some people actually use these things for fun..
