    Default Yanmar 276D stops cold - twice

    My 276D is set up for snow plowing. Two storms ago after about 5 minutes of warm up I'm in reverse and the machine stops - like I backed into a tree (no tree). Restarted and all worked well. This weekend it happened again after about the same amount of warm up time. I guess I got the clutch in on time because it didn't stall this time. Anyone have any idea why?
    Thanx

    A drop of water in the fuel? I can't think of anything else that could be that sudden, and then resume.

    Does that model have a shutdown solenoid?

    A too tight gas cap - no vent - can prevent fuel flowing and cause a shutdown but you would also see the sides of the tank sucked in.

    Many in the past. Today, a Kubota M59, JD530, 2 Yanmars - 16 & 33 hp, & a JD310SG

    So what was the cause? AFAIK there is no shutdown solenoid in that model. I like the non-vented fuel tank idea; it just sort of appeals to how I imagine the events unfolding.

    Pride of place goes to our 2 cylinder John Deer 530. With her loader, PS, clutched PTO, and remote hydraulics she's as modern & useful today as 50 years ago. And has a comfortable seat, too.
    A Kubota M59 & a JD310SG for TLB work....giving us options on doing heavy jobs.
    We'll not forget Mr. Big & Mrs. Little - 33 & 16 hp Yanmars - now gone.
    And a line-up of well-used implements that still work better than they look.
