Hi Warren, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. If there is not overheat or other operational problems and the oil level is good and the filter is clean and not restricted, it could be the result of an old service bulletin that was out on these for faulty sensors or harness problems. Here is the info:Solution Number: 21353Solution Summary: SIB-RW-R85-40-5 Clutch Temp Sensor Removal - RC50 & 4WD50Publication Date: Jan 23 2003**Paper copies of solutions may not be the most current solutions** <<Ref SIB R86-20-6 on head temp sensor>> <<RC not in SIB above.>> Information: Beginning 04 Feb 85, the cylinder head temperature sensor and clutch temperature sensor have been removed. In addition, warning system modules have the clutch temperature indicator (a) removed from the lower left-hand corner (b). Parts: New warning system module is RE22166. The earlier warning system module (RE11018) will remain for use on earlier tractors. Additional information: Cylinder head temperature and clutch temperature sensors were removed from 50 series 4WD tractors beginning with the following tractor serial numbers:8450........(5186 - ) <<4050........(5658- )8650........(7314 - ) 4250........(9793- )8850........(6060 - ) 4450........(20011- ) 4650........(11128- )<<see SIB diagrams>> 4850........(9093- )>> To eliminate clutch temperature sensor:1. Cut sensor wire leads as close as possible to sensor.2. Splice wires cut off at sensor together with a crimp connector or by twisting and taping. Important: Sensor wires to SMU must be connected together to prevent a false warning light on dash. Note: Crimp connector can be filled with silicone sealant or a dielectric grease such as AT66865 to prevent corrosion. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 1.

There will have to be (2) sets of service parts carried. One set will service row crop and 4WD built with the clutch temperature and head temperature sensors. The other set will service all row crop and 4WD tractors built since the removal of the sensors. In all cases a "set" means parts for domestic tractors and parts for export tractors.

It also requires that the electronics be "fooled" because there will be no sensors tied to the inputs. The current level from the SMU to the fuel level sender was increased to improve the reliability of the sender. Pin #6 has been modified to supply a regulated 5 volts to the oil pressure sender. The present RE12175 pressure sensor incorporates a 5 volt regulator for stand alone 12 volt operation. The regulator in the sensor is to be removed for cost and reliability improvement. The required 5 volts is now available through the SMU on pin #6 which has been vacated with the removal of the clutch temperature sensor. This change will require a new part number for this part. To differentiate between the new sensor and RE12175 the connector halves on the harness and sensor are reversed.
