Re: YM2001 no crank/start

"Common sense" troubleshooting is in order. Pull the starter and bench Test it with jumper cables, testing drive engagement, and condition of drive and flywheel ring gears, also check clutch switch for proper contact with VOM.

Re: Why do I have grease in my front axle? YM1500D

I find it hard to believe that "00",600w), grease will ever find it's way into the lower knuckles and spindles. I have read many accounts of guys waiting for many minutes to hours for 90wt to reach those points following a tear down repair, (oil level stops dropping). I would still top wit...

You need to first troubleshoot and repair, then re-wire as necessary.

Re: Ym276 sluggish

Correct air/fuel starting mixture is obtained ONLY at WOT, (no carburetor). Check ALL throttle linkage for binds, bad springs, etc.

Re: Why do I have grease in my front axle? YM1500D

Don't worry about the grease, it will mix perfectly with oil. If mine I would fill with 90 wt, then top off with LUCAS Power Steering Stop Leak until it stopped leaking, and delay the job for 10 years or so.

Bent steering arms should not be causing your steering play. I would check the end knuckles for play before bothering to straighten. Would try that Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak. It can save you a lot of work. It has stopped my bush hog output seal leak for over ten years.

Re: New-to-me YM1500D with some issues and questions

Looks like you may have your hands full with pump, so for leaking front axle seals I would just top off with LUCAS Power Steering Stop Leak and put that job off for 10-20 years. It is about same viscosity as 90wt.

Is your shifter boot torn? That's a LOT of water to get in from power washing after changing fluid.

Re: YM 1900 radiator

The 1700 rad will no doubt fit in the opening. Prob just need to make mounting brackets. Home Depot angle aluminum should work fine. 2 pcs bolted together to make "U" shape bracket.

Re: Flashing CHG Light

What is the static battery voltage? a blinking light is usually a sign of battery not taking full charge. 14.5 v is pretty high charge rate, also sometimes a bad battery sign.

A scraper, (not plastic), dipped in ACETONE usually works well on most all adhesives.

If the (red arrow) valve is partly closed that is probably the whine you hear. Recommended drop speed is 2 seconds.

Re: Locked back wheel

Assume the brake to be the culprit and work from there. Not aware of any online manual, but service manual available on this site.

Re: Fuel leak?

"For what it is worth I have bled numerous tractor just by loosening the injector nut"
I seriously doubt that. As gwp said the engine, (pump ) must be turning, and still no way to know if all air is out unless properly bled back to tank.
