    Default Re: Looking for yanmar advice

    I have never used thermostart on my 3110. When it's cold outside 50* or below it turns over real slow ,but still will start without thermostart. No way You shouldn't have to use thermostart on a 70* day

    Well the guy just sold the 2200 so now the 2610 is my best option. It ran great without blow by just wouldn't start without the glow plugs. I'm sure everyone knows its a 3cyl. So I'm guessing that having to heat the glow plugs is fine. The guy has been using the decompression lever to kill the engine for several years. Is that a problem? Or can it cause one?

    Kenmac, good point on the thermostart vs glow plugs.

    If the battery is hot on the 2610 so it spins the starter at a good clip, it should start quickly at 70* without any pre-heat. If not, I'd pass on that particular Yanmar. My statement does not apply to all engine designs, but a 2610 will fire right up with no assistance down into the 50's or cooler. In fact the thermostart was an option on some of the earlier Yanmar tractors as it was only needed in cold weather areas.

    Glow plugs, thermostart, smurfs with torches, you know what I mean. .
    Why would you stay away from it if it has to use the "thermostart"? What could be wrong with it? I'm getting mixed comments. What could be wrong causing it to have to use it to start?

    I quit importing entirely nearly 10 years ago, but we still appreciate the quality of Yanmar tractors, be it grey market or the USA models. But with literally hundreds of Mahindra's on our lot, we had to focus!

    The 3110 was sure a nice model, and just like a good 2610, they start fast with no assistance except in very cold weather.

    Low compression. If you still want to buy it, take it to a shop and have them do a compression test. It will be on the low end of normal at best.

    Smurfs with torches, I like that! A thermo-start is entirely different than a glow plug system, but has the same goal of warming up the cylinders.

    Thermostart is kinda like a smurf with a torch. Like Dave said.(and he should know he use to import these tractors) compression is probably on the low side. Diesels crank/start/fire on high compression & fuel pressure.My Dodge Ram with Cummins uses a intake heater (no injectors)to warm the incomming air to aid in starting,but it only comes on in low temps and it ain't 70* .More like 50*-55*.My yanmar will fire right up at 70*
