Re: Build dates for Yanmar 155d

Sometimes you can find a date stamped on the wheel of the tractor. They are non-serial numbered components, but may be a useful clue as to narrowing the production year. For instance, if the wheels are from December 1979, it is reasonable to call the machine a 1980 year tractor. All this assumes the...

Re: date of manufacture

As was suggested, I would look more at the rimes. The date code may be on the inside face, and harder to find. If the wheels have been heavily repainted, or have corroded excessively, it might be impossible to find the date code. While I'm not saying you should, some time with a wire brush and somet...

Re: Yanmar 3010d Hydraulic Transmission Oil

Any of the common "universal tractor fluid" varieties should work just fine for your machine. From Hoye's knowledge base: "JD303, HyTrans, J10A, J14A, J20A,B,C,D, J27A" and others will all be functional. Go to any local tractor dealership or supply house and they will have a comp...

Re: lift weight capacity of 1610

This is just my suspicion, so is worth exactly what you paid for it. If the tractor is able to handle that sprayer, it will be at its limit. The 1610 is a little bit bigger than my 186D, but smaller than my YM2000. I don't think my 186D would handle 700 lbs of sprayer. It will do about 550 lbs: A 30...

Re: Lost 4wd 187D

Depending on what separated, bent, or snapped, you might not have to split the tractor. The front drive engagement on my YM186D bent and became unusable. I was able to restore its function without splitting the tractor. I posted a thread about the tractor, which evolved into covering my fix on this ...

Re: yanmar tiller tine patterns

...Most tillers turn so the rotation is in the opposite direction of the tractor wheels as it drives forward. That is, engage the tiller and put the tractor in neutral, and the tiller will pull the tractor backward. But a few are designed (or mounted backward) so that they turn in the same directio...

Re: oil filter

Is the low oil pressure in the YM155 from an inadequate oil pump, or do they get a relief spring stuck or something else entirely?


Why would placing a larger filter onto the machine reduce the oil pressure?

Re: 2610d front wheel drive problems

They are 5/16". Assuming everything else works fine means the drop box is engaging. I don't have a parts book, but I discovered when working on my YM240D that a set of 8mm ball bearings took up the slack in my slightly worn coupling better than the 5/16" ball bearings did. Some thick, sti...

Re: What do I Have?

If you cannot find an engine data plate, or serial number on the transmission casting, a couple other things to look at may help identify your tractor. The YM1500 will have a 4 speed transmission plus reverse, with high and low ranges. The YM155 is a 3 speed transmission, plus reverse, with high/low...

Re: HYDRAULIC PUMP

As Winston said, you shouldn't lose a lot of fluid, but it IS going to drip and leak when you disassemble things. The fluid will drain from the pump and connectors, and the suction line will drip until the open end of the line is even with the fluid level in the reservoir. I would be surprised if it...

Re: HYDRAULIC PUMP

The hydraulic pump is on the right side of the tractor, at the front of the engine. If you follow the two tubes up the right side of the tractor, they will run into the hydraulic pump. The large one is your suction line, the small tube is the pressure line.

Re: PTO won't stop

Grab it with your hand (carefully!) and see if you can stop it. I know it's possible to do, but this is a terrible idea, and really dangerous! A piece of lumber could be used instead of your hand, or, even safer, hook up a PTO implement and see if it drives the implement. I just don't think it's wo...

Re: What Yanmar is this?

The 2TR20 is the engine for a Yanmar 2000. Check the serial number also, but I think it will show you have a YM2000.

Re: What Yanmar is this?

On the left side of the transmission housing, about where your left ankle is, you will find the serial number. It will say something like "YM2000-000879" or whatever. The first digits are the model number, and will tell you what you have. The other thing to check is the data plate on the s...
