If it's running well, I don't know what would be causing it to run hot. Maybe it's running too lean/overspeeding?

i think it has to do with the sqeeking noise it is making.that seems to be when the overheating started

check your clutch,if so equipped,the clutch and the clutch drum may be in a bind.

If you don't see any problems with the clutch, try removing the shaft and run it to see if the squeak is still present. If not, the problem is likely dry bearings in the shaft or in the gearhead if equipped.
