I just recently did a complete top end rebuild on my Brute, got it put back together, took it on a small ride (didn't go over 25 mph) it overheated and died. Has oil, coolant, and the thermostat is working, sprayed the radiator out front and back, wired up a toggle switch to the fan, still overheated and died but now it's locked up. What would have caused it to keep overheating and why it locked up?

Gotta be something that didn't go back in right during the rebuild.

Was piston to cylinder wall clearance checked? Also what was the ring gap set at?.
If too tight. Can cause your symptoms.
