Hi Tony. Welcome to the forum. I live in Oregon City area and figuring things out myself as well. We are off Redland Rd and Henrici.Thanks, @bmaverick. I am in Oregon about 25 miles south of Portland where the real Oregon starts.
I do have ROPS and it did save my life on the rollover. The bolts did bust out of the cast PTO cover so I had to get a new one. Better than dying as you said.
I was surprised that my local new tractor sales place, Menck Machinery, would fill my tires with Rim Guard for $180 so it seems like a good investment. I read a thread about the 4wd and the shifter slipping out.
Floppy 4wd Shifter-2210D
I have the Parts manual from Hoye so I think I will stay in 2wd until the rain starts then bring it into my shop to take apart.
Member JohnDeere3720 has training in diesel mechanics and lives up in Banks. You may want to get in touch with him. He has been fixing up some Yanmars and posted threads here about his projects.
Did you have your seat belt on when rolling over? I’m trying to get the roll bar on my 186D for the same reasons of safety.
Sorry to hear about the accident. Glad you are all right.
