 Yanmar 226D 4wd Problems

The right front wheel of my 87 Yanmar 226D has locked up. Before I dig in and take it apart I need to find a repair manual and a parts supplier. Tractor is in NH.

 Yanmar 226D 4wd Problems

Dave, I just sent you an email with a few suggestions for parts and manuals. Let us know what the problem is. I've never had one lockup, so this isn't real common. Dave

Dave, this problem is very common to the Yanmar gray market tractors. You likely have damaged bearings and seals. Hopefully the damage is not too great as the "tower gear" arrangement of the Yanmar front axles has some axial and thrust needle bearings that can cause serious damage to other parts when they disintegrate. Don't ask me how I know - just take my word for it.

Greg, I sold nearly a hundred 4x4 grey market Yanmars last year and have had no such problems. Most of them were the newer YM's and F-series. I do buy only real nice stuff from Japan, so maybe I have just been lucky so far. I have had a number of the front ends apart fixing seals and I can agree with your assessment concerning the needle bearings. If they get loose in there, it could be bad news.

Dave,
I have personally only seen one tractor this bad, but I have only seen about 16 imported Yanmar tractors total. The oldest being YM1500D's, the newest an FF205D. Many of them were not personally mine.

The YM1110D I almost have back together was pretty much a basket case. The engine needed some work as well.
Greg

Well, I rebuild a yanmar 226d front axle last year on a tractor I bought on E-bay. lots of parts and pieces in there, including, as mentioned before, a couple of needle bearings. more than likly one of those came appart and fell in the lower drive gears, jamming them. Good news, very sturdy design, I doubt thet it caused any damage.(but there might be other stuff wrong, why did this come appart??)
Parts readily available from Yanmar, prices not unreasonable.Get the partsbook and the maintenance manual, a great help with all those pieces and dimensions. Suggest while you are in there to replace all seals and any marginal looking bearings, for a couple of hunderd $$ it will be like new.

You should be able to match the bearing at a supply house even without the number off of it. They can mic it and get the number from the dimensions.
The bushing may need to come from Yanmar. You may be able to match it to a JD number also. Dave should know.
