Question for FABMANDELUX

Fab

I know you farm and use BD to operate your equipment. I have a farm equipment on BD question for you.
I recently picked up a fairly low hour but older Yanmar tractor (20 HP model) I know it is older than 94 I intend to run it on BD will changing fuel lines be all I have to look out for?

I would ask Yanmar but the closest dealer is 250 miles away

Go for it!! I've got 2 Yanmar 18hp diesel's that I use for irrigation, both run great, have had no problem's at all. They seem to run a lot smoother too. They don't seem to "hammer" nearly as much as they did on Dino-diesel. And yes replacing the hose is all you should have to do. FAB
