Re: noisy shift gears YM1500

My 1500 has been occasionally hard to shift out of seventh gear (not sure about 3rd, I don't use low range very often) since I bought it several years ago. I have to either pull a lot harder than I want to or I have to let out the clutch just enough to make the tractor start to roll and then I can s...

I made sure to buy the dust covers because, living in Pennsylvania, it's not uncommon to get into mud or snow deep enough to fill the spacers. I even put a little bit of sealant around the edges that I peel off and replace each spring.

Re: Throttle slipping. Tension adjustment?

That happened on my 1500 last year, and what I found was that the friction disc had split and half of it was gone. I ordered a new one, put it on, and the problem was instantly solved. It's #4 on the link that Winston posted.

Re: Loader Build

Thanks. I originally wanted to buy a loader from Coldwater Tractors, but my better half torpedoed that idea. When I told her I was going to build a loader I think she thought I was joking until I did it. From the time I bought the first piece of steel until now it's been well over a year. My main mo...

Re: YM2210D - over run clutch

I would think that your PTO shaft would need to be rated to handle whatever your PTO horsepower rating is. You aren't going to be moving while you're using this, meaning you will have the transmission in neutral, so I can't see you needing to size the shaft larger like you might need to do for a rot...

Re: Temp Gauge installation

I installed both a temp gauge and oil pressure gauge in my dash. I eliminated the idiot light entirely and for both I just used a hole saw and centered it a little bit to the right of where the idiot lights were mounted. The hole saw makes the hole pretty tight for the gauges, but I just used a drem...

Re: YM2210D - over run clutch

The problem with converting from torque to horsepower is that power is a measurement of work done over time, so to go from torque to horsepower, or back again, you need to specify the RPM. I was thinking 2200 rpm engine speed, but that was wrong. I need to use the 540 rpm PTO speed. For the 885 foot...

Re: YM2210D - over run clutch

When running at 2,200 rpms, 885 ft lbs is about 370 horsepower. I don't see how a slip clutch with that high of a torque rating could protect your tractor.

Re: Loader Build

Thanks, Winston. The cylinders are quite a bit bigger than I need, you're right about that. It takes a little longer than I would like to raise and lower the boom. I bought them more for the price than the size. I've had a difficult time convincing my wife how useful a loader would be so hopefully a...

Loader Build

My loader is mostly done. Other than painting it, I just have to install a sleeve on the tilt cylinder to shorten the stroke by 3" (a little bit of a miscalculation there) and get some quick disconnects for the hydraulics. Eventually I'm going to need to get longer lines for the line from the v...

Re: Ym1500 front end loader?

I've been working on building a loader from scratch for my 1500. I'll be posting pictures in a couple weeks in the project section once I have it done and painted. The only things I have left to do are attaching the bucket and plumbing the hydraulics, which I'm hoping to have done this weekend. I us...

Re: 1500 shift pattern.. seriously?

At risk of revealing that I'm a little thick....I ran across this old post and I can't hold back any longer. can't wrap my head around this infernal shift pattern. I keep wanting to believe that 1st thru 4th is the low gear range and 5th thru 8th is high but 1st and 4th are the same position?.....a...

Re: Ym1500 oil pressure

My 1500 does the same thing and in eight years I've never had a problem with it. I'm thinking that's normal.

Re: Yanmar 1300D

Looking at this picture it looks like switching the front wheels and attaching both of them in the correct narrow stance will fix it.
