Default Yanmar YM 2000= high range

Have been trying to buy this ym2000 from a small tractor dealer here, finally got to test drive today after getting flat fixed, well it jumps out of high range detent when releasing clutch mostly after shifting into 3rd gear not every time you shift but about every 4th time, radiator leaks, water pump shaft wobbles dripps coolant,rusting around lower hood section near pivot point, warning lights not wired tack inop. wandering about high range fix any suggestions.

Is the dealer familiar with the Yanmar lineup?

Is it too personal to ask what he wants for the tractor?

I'm not sure why it's jumping out of high range but it will take a tear down to determine if it's a shift gate problem or something more serious. The water pump is available (no problem) same with the tachometer cable...but broken cable means the hour meter is in-op and it may have been this way for years.

This one sounds seriously neglected....This may be one tractor you should consider passing up unless, the price is just too tempting and leaves you with a sizeable amount in your budget to acquire the necessary parts to make it ready for duty.

New radiator is $285, new water pump $116, transmission unknown, etc. Any smoke? Any bubbles in overflow jug? Does it crank right up? What do fluids and fluid levels look like? Any blow by? No advice, just some things to think about.

The tractor has a rebuilt engine ,I have talked to the mechanic who did the work, new crank, main & rod bearings, vavle job on head new oil pump, new injector pump etc. no water in oil no oil in water. asking $2200.00 . maybe shifter dent arm ? still requires trans tear down I guess ? Parts and repair maybe just too much. I think dealer feels he was burned on the trade in of this tractor ,don,t why he took the customers word for condition of tractor .

This is a 'toughy' IMO.

The dealer should be willing to negotiate with you just to get it off his inventory. He should also be willing to sell it at a loss since it has so many unknown variables. IF he decides he wants his money out of it, it may be on his lot for a very long time.

This particular tractor could be a 'money pit' and you might end up hating it...or worse, loosing interest and tackling a monster where you never break even.

If your budget is set in stone you still might be better off buying a good, used YM2000 for more money, but with a warranty, parts support and a dealer who will stand by your purchase! I think Tullahoma Tractors in Tullahoma, Tennessee is a decent Yanmar dealer. If they don't have what you want, or it's too far to pick up, then I would seriously consider a UTDA delivered tractor from LMTC's inventory. Regardless of where you go, it would be a good idea to call them both and just 'talk' tractors for awhile

Woodshooter, did you ask the mechanic if he had an opinion about the transmission? Maybe see if he has any estimate of possibe repair? If it is indeed a rebuilt engine that puts a check on the plus side.

With the tranny jumping out of high range, I would either have to buy it for a steal or walk away.

the radiator and water pump I could deal with, but the unknown tranny problem, that scares the heck out of me.
