Did u bleed up top and bottom both? Did u have it jacked up so radiator was above motor? Doubt an oil leak will cause overheat

Yeah didn't have it jacked up very high, maybe 12 inches. I can re-do that this weekend.

Also, what size is the rad cap? I want to buy a pressure tester and test the whole cooling system at 15psi.

Gonna test the whole system this weekend, pressure up to 15 psi and see if it holds, if not then start diagnosing one component at a time. I will let all know what happens.

1.the reverse wire is a green wire that drapes over the engine and will get a bad connection due to the heat of the engine.
2. when has the belt been replaced? is it hard or many cracks on the outside of the belt?
3. is the grease in the primary clutch hardened?
4. no more than 5 psi is needed to carb. anything above will push past the float.

1. I don't think the reverse rev-limiter is an issue anymore, I'm not seeing a blinking reverse light and the rhino now moves fine. My clutch was shot, replaced it and everything moves fine. However, I'm getting an oil leak at my clutch housing now, I assume this is when my dumbass used a sanding attachment on the dremel tool to remove the old gasket before putting the new one, probably affected the mating of the flange assembly. Ordered a new one.

2. Replaced belt already, old one was at 30mm

3. Grease is fine, but cleaned it all off and applied new grease to everything.

4. Fuel is no longer a problem, not getting a gas smell anymore, not sure what changed that but I'm not complaining.

The issue now is the over-heating and the oil leak. What size pressure cap adapter is needed to test this radiator? Anybody know of a good affordable gauge set for the dash? I'd like to see fuel level, water temp level, and also oil pressure.

Thanks!
