Re: I wanted oil pressure and boy do I have it now!

Ok. Discussed with diesel mechanic friend and we added one washer under the male threaded plug which slightly reduced spring compression. This washer was installed on the outside of the valve, not inside where the shims would normally go. Started tractor and the pressure was down from 90 to 70psi. R...

Re: I wanted oil pressure and boy do I have it now!

I guess I will exchange it for another if you have one without the slits in the body like the original one as it should have the proper spring. The original has a circlip holding everything in, not a threaded plug like the one sent. I sure can't run it with 90psi. Would you like me to send a picture...

Re: I wanted oil pressure and boy do I have it now!

Aaron, Checked oil pressure with a reliable gauge and got 90psi cold at idle. Removed threaded plug from oil pressure regulator and there are NO shims. However the spring in the regulator you sent is heavier than the original one which broke. Do you think the previous owner replaced with a stiffer s...

Re: I wanted oil pressure and boy do I have it now!

Thanks Aaron. I just installed the valve the way I received it from you. I didn't remove the fitting screwed in the valve body to see if it contained shims? The pressure gauge is just one you'd pick up at the auto parts store. I have a portable gauge I can check it with. This is bizarre... Went from...

I wanted oil pressure and boy do I have it now!

Was getting low oil pressure on rebuilt engine and found broken spring (and some trash) in my by-pass valve behind oil filter. Aaron sent me a replacement and now I'm showing 80psi cold at idle. I shut it down thinking this is way too much pressure. Perhaps it has something to do with shims which I ...

Re: Got tractor halves back together and clutch is not right?

Here we go again! I got tractor halves put back together again and it seemed to go together just fine. Now the engine is not engaging with the transmission. The clutch action seems to be fine. Don't think clutch shaft fell out of the coupler on transmission end but I guess it could have. I'm wonderi...

Got tractor halves back together and clutch is not right?

YM2000 Just got rebuilt engine put back in tractor and tractor halves went together fine. Now when tractor is in gear I can roll back and forth therefore it is not engaged with engine. Also, clutch linkage rod (with turnbuckle) will not reach mounting holes? When I manually move clutch clutch lever ...

YM2000. Which way does clutch pressure plate install?

Both sides of pressure plate are identical except that one side sticks out a little farther than the other. Shop manual does not address. Do you think it matters? Any help appreciated!

Re: Well... Here I go with overhaul

YM2000 - removing crank shaft Thanks again Winston. Waiting on shop manual but thought I'd get a head start. I have removed radiator, alternator, hydraulic lines and everything necessary to split tractor exposing both ends of crank. I am assuming I can avoid removing engine from frame by jacking up ...

Re: Well... Here I go with overhaul

Thanks Winston. Well.... There you have it. Will definitely have to tear down. Gonna show my ignorance and ask...... Can a journal be built up or will crankshaft need replacing? Hoye lists a new one for $+500. If it can be built up should the machining labor exceed this? Was shocked to see that a ne...

Re: Well... Here I go with overhaul

Looks like I was a little anxious and way off on measurements. The difference between crankshaft journals is 0.0125. the readings I'm getting are: Front - 2.1230" Rear - 2.1105" I'm not totally confident of my readings as it is very difficult working thru the engine housing. Anybody happen...
