Re: Fuel leak?

Think I identified problem.....I noticed the fuel tank was partially collapsed apparently from lack of ventilation. Since first post ive learned that the leak is intermittent. I suspect after running tractor a suction develops in tank, then after shutting down the leak stopped and began sucking in a...

Re: Fuel leak?

Thanks Winston. I have screw in style. The leak is extremely slow and isn't really a big deal unless the leak is allowing air getting in if tractor sits for a week or so without starting. You think part #18 is culprit? If so, should this be a relativly easy fix? Thank you

Fuel leak?

YM2000 Having a very slow diesel leak....looks like where fuel lines connect to pump. Nuts are hard tight. Is there an "O" ring or a seal of some type back there somewhere? Also, if tractor sits unused for several days it won't start. Last time this happened I loosened bleed screw on pump ...

Re: Tire rubbing

Mine is like yours. Pins turned inside. Just wondered if a 30" scoop is too wide for these tractors. Once I have two adjusting stabilizers hopefully I can keep it centered. Thx

Tire rubbing

YM 2000 I've read all the posts related to this common problem. Bought a 30" dirt scoop/pan and the darn pins are a mile apart.....way wider than that of my other implements. I have a sway adjuster on one side and just chain on the other. Guess I'll get another adjuster to have one on each side...

Re: Throttle slipping. Tension adjustment?

I knew it.....simple adjustment of nuts on lever shaft fixed it. I just can't accept the principle of.... start with simple and work toward complicated. Thanks again

Throttle slipping. Tension adjustment?

Anyone know of a way to adjust tension on the throttle lever? RPM's start dropping during use and constantly having to throttle up. Am I overlooking something obvious.....which is usually the case. Thanks

Re: Overheating? Totally new cooling system

All good here. Installed temp gauge and tried it out today with finish mower. Topped out at 165. Darn old temp sender about gave me stroke. Hallelujah......this drama is over. Wonder if an additive might help with blow by? It's not bad but have heard Lucas is making some top end stuff that is pretty...

Re: Overheating? Totally new cooling system

Will definitely replace sender right away. I did back flush engine but now realize you are correct....a variety of temp readings are seen at different places on block. A sender only reports overheating at the sender, and if water passages in block are clear, those high readings are not a problem. Go...

Re: Overheating? Totally new cooling system

Thanks Winston...that's encouraging. This thought just hit me.....is it normal for temp readings right on the head to be above "operating temperature"? Maybe I'm ok!

Overheating? Totally new cooling system

Ym2000 New radiator, water pump, hoses, totally reworked head with new parts. Finally was able to do some mowing (4' finish mower....very light load on tractor) and when done I brought down to an idle at which time temp light came on. I grabbed infrared thermometer and got readings on head up to 210...

Re: YM2000 hard cold start and overheating

To provided closure for this thread, I was completely exasperated with repairing my tractor and gave up due to my inexperience with a diesel and lack of confidence. I fell victim to the human tendency of assuming a worst case scenario so I took the tractor to my friend who is regarded as a genius di...
