    Need advise on Diesel

    I have an opportunity to purchase a x495 with 22hp yanmar diesel 2011. Hours unknown, and one piston and rings had to be replaced. Piston and rings was sold together from John Deere. Price is $2,800. Tractor condition is excellent, no cracks, dents, etc. Your thought on reason engine needed work!!!

    Hours unknown - that would give me pause. Before anything else I would want to know the hours. If low would need to find the reason for a catastrophic failure like this.

    Now - I looked up the piston on Deere parts and come up with AM882426 for the piston and rings and a price of $150.59. Where is this price of $2800 coming from?

    OK - makes more sense!

    Some others will have to chime in on the value of the tractor. But I would still insist on knowing the hours. These Yanmar diesels are about bullet proof - would try very hard to find out what happened.

    With that said - I replaced the piston rings along with other neccessary goods on a Yanmar diesel years ago. I had no idea what I was doing (and no internet to seek help then) and did fine. Itís not the replacing or the parts that would bother me - itís what else you may find wrong once you dig into it.

    I misunderstood your original post. I see the piston/rings were already replaced and runs great now.

    I will bow out and let those who can help you with value respond.

    I have bought a X495 and two X595's that had bad hour meters. The LCD hourmeter is built-in to the instrument cluster and would cost around $ 800 for a new cluster. So that is why about 50% of used X-Series tractors hourmeters do not work.

    I have owned a 332 with the 16 hp Yanmar, six 455's with the 22 hp Yamnar and three X-Series tractors with the 24 hp Yanmars. I have NEVER had any engine problems with any of them.

    Is the tractor at a dealership? They might be able to provide some details.

    To me if your going to go through the trouble to tear into an engine,new gaskets and such why would you change one piston and rings.Whatever happen to one could happen to the others.Sounds like a ticking time bomb.There's others out there I'd pass on this one.

    I also thought it was odd that only one piston was changed. May have been low compression, bad ring. I do not think the compression would be even between all three cylinders. The JD spec is a maximum of 36 psi difference between all three cylinders. I would have at least honed the other cylinders and put in new rings in all of them. YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW THE ENGINE HOURS TO MAKE A GOOD DECISION. I would pass on this one.

    Good point. I believe Iím going to pass. I would rather pay more and know that the engine has never been cracked open, and 1/2 way worked on.
