    Help me identify this noise.

    I haven't even looked at the parts breakdown or opened it up. I heard this noise coming out of the garden after disking part of it under. I think it may be a bearing noise. Look at this video I made and posted to YouTube so I could link it here.

    Check your hydraulic screen/filter

    I went to change my fluid. It's not been 500 hours but that would take me forever to get that many hours on it. It's been quite a few years since I changed it. Full change maybe 12? I did partial changes I believe or either drain and refills when I did axle work I believe. But this thing works...

    Not Charging

    My battery is 4 years old. I keep a HF solar charger maintainer on it. I wanted to check the health of my battery. It's been parked since last weekend. Put meter on it 12.15v , ok that's low but I bought a cheap battery. So after I used the tractor for like 30 mins I get back to shed leave it...

    Disking food plots with the YM2000

    I figure everyone likes pics and especially videos. I made a video as I was disking my food plots a few weeks ago. If it looks like it keeps cutting and jumping it's because it is. I had to stop it to make the turn so the video wouldn't be all ready as I used my two hands. Just some raw footage...

    Head Gasket

    What do you think about re-useing a head gasket. If it wasn't blown but pulled to check cylinder health. I have a non running 186. As I spin the motor over by hand by fan it spins very easily like there is no compression. The previous owner pulled to head cause the motor was locked up. It was...

    I'll be getting another tractor!

    Well it's not a Yanmar but it is red..or was, or had a reddish undertone under the years of "patina". It's a FarmAll cub! I guess I need to move on over to the Farmall/ International forum and post a similar thread but I thought I'd let some of y'all who know me better know first. Nothing...

    Metal roof over shingles roof.

    I'm sure this has been discussed but this is my go around for it. So let me hear your suggestions, things to avoid, how you did yours. What trim did you use on sides, is it a mistake to not use trim on your sides. Metal directly over overlay, use perlins over felt, did you run two layers one...

    Moving a storage shed

    Throw some ideas out there for me. My neighbor is giving me his old 12x16 shed. It's at least 35 years old. Frame looks and appears solid so pulling from the skids should be an option. My plan is to wait till it's dry and put a chain or rope between the side skids and pull with a tractor. If...

    What would you use to glue seat back down?

    I was given a zero turn that needed some work. It's low hours. I did the needed repairs to get it back in service. Now it's just things like the hour meter doesn't work and the fuel float is sunk so the gauge doesn't work. But the question I have is the seat has pulled away from the metal seat...

    A Quick easy mod to make your lights flash in unison as flashers.

    Not sure if this has been posted here, but I have never run across it. This will allow both flashers to work at the same time like a slow moving vehicle should have on while on a road. The way there set up is like turn signals, only one side on at the time, I guess they use them as turn...

    Anyone else see the article about the new Yanmar Outboard?

    I will try to link to it tomorrow but the other day I read an article about yanmar anouncing it will produce a turbo diesel outboard. I think it was a 50hp.

    Got some new tires.

    Was looking for some cheap mud tires for my old wood and farm truck. Was looking at the new modern patterns over the classic mud tire.

    Washing Air Filter

    I have read on here about the original Yanmar air filter being washable. Those who have washed it what did you use. Did you use diesel, gas, mild soap and water or just water? I was just curious of what you did and was it successfull. I have one that need to be cleaned out beyond blowing it out.

    Here is the Bush hog Razorback rz60 that I picked up a week or so ago. Well used. And has the classic tears on the corner that this model suffer from while looking at google images of it.
