Any idea what temp the engine is running at? Do u have a temp. gun to check it?

Sounds like your engine could be overheating. Do u have adequate cooling or baffling?

As someone else mention running the wrong gas can affect the timing and contribute to the heat problem.

Do u notice the crankshaft play when the engine is hot or cold? and is it front to back play or a side to side wobble?

I know, lots of questions , just trying to get a handle on the problem.

Thanks Bill..anytime I guess, are you waiting for some couplers to come in?I'll wait if so.I'll just replace the front bearing. The play is side to side Mike.I've never overheated it and it has adequate cooling.
