yep, finally bought a cheap (2500.00) yanmar, grey market babe, ugly as sin, low hours (or at least that what i thought) used it for 26 hours and all of a sudden the motor started running like it was fed pure ethanol, must of hit 3-4000 rpm for a split second then the engine blew. Was gonna tear it down but decided to junk it, think I'm strip the little devil and sell parts on ebay, tires and wheels probably worth 100-200, not really mad, I did get 1/2 year out of it, must have been fuel pump related. Before you buy a little low hour foriegn grey market tractor-be careful, anybody out there have bad luck with these kind of things?--bob
