    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?

    Yanmar YM240, and now just one YM186D

    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.

    Kubota M59, JD530, JD310SG. Hope to restore Yanmar YM165D

    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.

    We've had quite a few tractors come and go. Pride of place still goes to our 2 cylinder John Deere 530. With her QA loader, smooth draft control, telescoping 3 pt arms, power steering, clutched PTO, comfortable seat, and remote hydraulics she's as useful today as 50 years ago.
    There's a Kubota M59 & a JD310SG for TLB work. & a line-up of implements that work far better than they look.
    We'll not forget Mr. Big & Mrs. Little - 33 & 16 hp Yanmars - tough, reliable, & wonderfully clever.
