    Suggestions To Lighten Rear Ramp.....

    An option may be to copy one of the old U-haul leaf-spring assisted tailgate setups. It's a little bit cleaner above the top rail of the trailer, but would require fabrication. If more lift were needed a pair of springs could be used, or a stiffer leaf. These pictures are of a homebuilt version...

    Traction Loose Rear Wheels on Iseki TX1410

    I don't own an Iseki, let alone the TX1410. In the photographs I have seen, I cannot tell if there is a tensioning adjustment or not. On my small Yanmar tractors, the sliding hub has a hexagonal bore that slides onto the axle. A pin goes through the hub and axle, locating it and keeping it from...

    Brush hog slipper clutch I should post in Ford but I like this forum

    I can't specifically help, but you have (Unfortunately) a range of possible issues. The simplest by far is as you suspect, the slipper clutch not being sufficiently tightened. A stripe on both plates with a marker, a streak of nail polish, or a scribed witness mark would let you know pretty...

    Fair price for YM186D w no loader?

    This is completely unrelated, and not meant to be a critique or advisement: I don't know why, but the perspective here (Or perhaps she is just especially petite) makes that tractor look much larger than I know it to be! The first photo looks makes the tractor look exactly the size I imagine it...

    8N to attempt land speed record!

    According to an article at Bangshift.com (Available here: BangShift.com 8N Credible) the current land speed record is about 68 mph, set in 1935 by an Allis-Chalmers machine. There will be an attempt during Speed Week by Jack Donohue, a very accomplished racer himself, to break that record with...

    ym226d 3 point struggle

    Yanmar says 1168lbs "at the hitch" in their brochure for the lift capacity. I can't find any information about the pump sells for the 226; it also fits the YM2020-2420 series machines, but not anything else I can find information about. If you can post the numbers on your pump's data plate, we...

    Drowning information and video

    I'm thoroughly impressed with the lifeguard. He saw the child was in trouble, and reacted rapidly and correctly. It's difficult to blow the whistle, stop the wave pool, draw attention to yourself as stopping everyone's fun etc. I think he did a great job in tough circumstances; he's truly...

    Comparisons in tractor design: Yanmar vs Pasquali

    I found it on craigslist; another friend actually owns the same model. Parts are available but not prevalent. The air filter is an oil bath, so no problem there. I bought a new hydraulic pump to replace the leaking one, and engine rebuild parts and clutches are available as well. Oil filters...

    Comparisons in tractor design: Yanmar vs Pasquali

    Awhile ago my regular browsing of various classified services led me to a new tractor. It's a Pasquali 997, made in Italy sometime in the late 1970s/early 80s. It's not a Yanmar, but since it is in the stable with nearly all Yanmar machines, comparisons were inevitable, and I thought it might...

    Mitsubishi D1500 Maintenance questions - NEWBY needs a little help!

    I would start with Valley Power for brake shoes, they seem to have a good reputation. I've never bought anything from them, but they were extremely helpful and friendly the one time I called them about parts. Your brake shoes may not need to be replaced, merely adjusted. There is usually an...

    YM336D fuel consumption

    Just use the one for a YM240. ;) The fuel consumption data are accurate for the tractor, but I don't think the absolute pulling power they describe is generally applicable. If you look, they added 430 pounds of iron ballast to EACH rear wheel, after putting liquid ballast in them to boot...

    Yanmar hats

    This popped up in the "You might be interested in" portion of the popular online auction site we are not supposed to mention, while I looked for a couple minor items for my tractors. I thought it was interesting, but not to the degree it was justified in having its own thread: A Yanmar belt...

    PTO speeds

    I had posted a similar thread in the Yanmar sub-forum, but Kensnelling recently posted some new-to-me numbers for the PTO speeds on his D2000. Since I have a D1800 and have always wondered about the PTO speeds, I was excited to see his numbers: D2000: 1 - 540 rpm 2 - 753 rpm 3 - 998 rpm 4 -...

    Winston1's ym2002d farming tactics

    Winston inspired me, so I rustled up some pictures to share of some of the tools I'm hoping to put to work improving my gardening capacity and capabilities. They are kind of just for fun, since it doesn't make economic sense to try growing my own food here, with water being so expensive, but I...

    Truck tire debris

    I agree about the subjective part. I don't want to change the topic from tire debris; I run my tires at 42 PSI. Recommended is 35. (Same brand/model tire as factory delivered) After mine decapped, the inside part of the tire bulged out beyond where the normal layer of tread would be, looking...

    Agrisupply shipping time

    I have ordered from Agrisupply for several years, and have always had a good experience. My last two orders have taken what seems to be an excessive amount of time to ship. I placed my current order 10 days ago, and even though nothing was backordered, it still has not shipped. I called...

    Yanmars advertised in California

    These are not Yanmars, but I found them interesting. The Honda seems like the ultimate yard tractor: Front and rear lifts with 551 lb capacity, front, rear, and mid PTOs, 4 wheel drive and steering, differential lock, etc. This one seems to be complete and have a multitude of attachments. I...

    PTO speeds

    I was going through some of my notes, and found a chart I had started keeping track of some time ago, documenting PTO speeds for different grey market tractors I own or might encounter. I thought it might be useful to others if I put it up. I was derelict in my responsibility to keep track of...

    Yanmar F475

    Stuck PTO shaft saga

    What is the worst case of a bound up PTO shaft anyone has had? I had mine today. I picked up an older Brush Hog brand cutter awhile ago, and decided to test it out today. When I tried to hook it up, I discovered the PTO shaft was stuck in the collapsed position. I've had this happen on older...

    Got an oddball new attachment

    It really has nothing to do with Yanmars, except I put it on back of one. I got an offset vineyard cultivator, that I'm trying to learn more about. Pictures and a description are in the attachments forum, here.

    Offset vineyard cultivator

    I went to buy a tree auger to plant some fruit trees, and ended up coming home with more than I originally intended. I've never seen one of these before, and don't know anything about vineyard work. It's by a French company Humus, about which I can find nothing online. I thought it was kind of...

    IH 464 hydraulic troubles

    I've got an IH 464 that started giving me some trouble this morning. The hydraulic system for the lift and remote valves has largely quit working. I still have power steering. If I try to lift the three point, nothing really happens. The remote valves don't do anything either. I hear a...

    Ford 1700 clutch adjustment

    I just picked up a Ford 1700 that needed a starter. While I waited, I wanted to start it and move it around, so I tried pull starting it. However, the clutch is slipping. The clutch disk has what appears to be ample material left: The ruler has a space of about 2 mm from the edge to where...

    Ford 1700 starter parts

    I'm looking for a replacement solenoid for a starter on my Ford 1700. I think it has a Lucas replacement. Neither Napa nor the only starter rebuilding place around here were able to find a solenoid or any parts whatsoever to rebuild the starter. The original is a Hitachi S12-62, I understand...

    Original brochures

    In another thread, Scotty Dive posted some information about the original loaders on some Yanmar tractors. He sent me some scans of brochures he has made. I've posted them here on my photobucket site. There are brochures for the GT14, YM169, YM180/187, YM220/226, YM276/336, and a Brantly...

    Hydraulic pump adapter

    I posted this same question in the parts section, but realized I may have better luck here. I need to couple an SAE A (11 spline 3/4" male connector) pump to my tractor, which has an SAE B (13 spline 7/8" female connector) end. What is the best way to do this? I can't find any direct adapter...

    SAE spline adapter

    I need to couple an SAE A (11 spline 3/4" male connector) pump to my tractor, which has an SAE B (13 spline 7/8" female connector) end. Is there a source for a direct adapter, or a male ended Lovejoy (or similar) coupler to somehow link them? Thanks.

    A sinking feeling in my stomach

    I picked up a YM240D last weekend. I needed a fuel tank and some odds and ends for some of my other machines, so called Wayne at LMTC. He was helpful and careful to make sure that I was ordering parts for the correct machine, and told me to check the serial numbers to make sure I really had a...

    Transmission cover removal

    Are there any tricks to removing the transmission cover on a YM2000? (Part 16) I've pulled this part on my YM240 before, and it came off with 4 bolts. This time, it seems to be immovable. It has been immune to a dead blow hammer, blocks of wood walloped with a regular hammer, a putty knife...

    Had a breakdown!

    I finally had something fail due to wear and not abuse or improper assembly. My YM240 has a separate hydraulic pump to power the loader. I had left the tractor at my dad's house so he could do some cleanup. After only a few minutes he called me and said the loader wouldn't work. A quick trip...

    Tractor show at my house!

    This afternoon there was a tractor show at my house, and I was invited. It started innocently enough. I moved some trailers out of the way with my newish-to-me B6000 (12.5 pto horsepower) so I could mow with my little riding mower, a John Deere L100 (17hp). I decided to take a picture of the...

    B6000 front end disassembly

    I recently picked up a B6000 with a loader, box blade and spike harrow. (I documented the saga in the Yanmar forum , where I normally hang out.) Long story short, it had some wobble in the front end that I didn't catch before I bought it. The top of the knuckle moves in and out about an inch...

    My (hopefully not ill advised) foray to the dark side...

    (This post may be misplaced, but since I have put spent so much time on the Yanmar board, it feels like home. I apologize if this is too chatty post, and will delete it if asked.) I made a journey to the dark side, and have gotten bit. Since the school I work for is on spring break, I've had...

    McCormick Deering crawler advice

    My grandfather recently passed away, and among his things was this old crawler: All I know about it is what I remember being told as a child. It runs on gasoline to start it, and something else (Kerosene?) once it's warm. It's a McCormick-Deering, has a 4 cylinder engine with spark...

    Frivolously productive afternoon

    A couple weeks ago, my girlfriend succumbed to my recent spate of tractor activity, and learned to drive some of my equipment. She really enjoyed it, and has been wanting to grow a "BIIIIIIIIG garden." After she looked some, she now has a YM2000 to do her gardening with! It's all hers, and...

    New addition to the extended family, and trouble

    The school where I teach is working on developing gardening plots for the sixth graders. They don't have a tractor to use, and partly in thanks to my experiences at this forum I am apparently the resident expert on agricultural practices, specifically tractors and their implements. With some...

    1401d vs 186D 3 point lift comparison

    For a change, I have a question about a comparison between tractor models, rather than some maintenance or repair issue. A friend is looking at a Yanmar 186D. He has some implements (Brush-hog and disk harrow with roller) already. We have tried my 1401D on them, but they are just a bit too...

    YM240 smokes heavily, lacks power

    Resolution! When I last parked the tractor, I shut it down normally with the fuel cutoff position on the throttle. When I restarted it, I got the same symptoms as I had earlier! Knowing what to do, I pulled the valve cover, and discovered that this time, the number one cylinder's rocker arm...

    YM240 spindle and steering repair

    My project YM240 has revealed another area needing major work. This one, unlike the engine issue, is kind of my fault for missing in my inspection. On the front axle, the spindle is supposed to come up through the axle tube, in a bearing, then have a Woodruff key that splines the spindle to...

    YM240 smokes heavily, lacks power

    As mentioned in another thread, my recently purchased YM240 runs weakly and blows a lot of dark gray smoke. It will rev up to around 2200 rpm or so, but profusely pours smoke from the exhaust and lacks power. The motor was disassembled when I bought it last week, and I got it together and it...

    Loader valve difficulty

    I just purchased a Yanmar YM240 with a loader 2 days ago. When I bought it the motor was partly disassembled, supposedly to replace a headgasket. I got it back together and running, though my motor difficulties will probably end up in another thread, but for now, my trouble is with the loader...

    Generic gasoline engine tuning question

    Hi, I have a gas IH 284 that really lacks power. When it attempts to pull a load (even starting itself out with no implement or trailer) the engine bogs, stumbles, and runs roughly. With no load, it runs smoothly, but it is difficult to throttle up: opening the throttle, even with no load...

    Introduction

    Hello, I just joined the forum to see if I can get some advice on tuning up my tractor.
