I know that the older smaller grey market Yanmars do not have a water pump or thermostat. But does any body know if the mitsubishis or Isekies 24hp and under have either one?

Thanks

Thank you for the reply and welcome to the tractorforum. I wonder if only Yanmars have the setup without the thermostat or water pump?

Durwood,

To my knowledge Yanmar doesn't use a thermostat in any of their sized tractors.

And Pre 1980 two cylinders did have thermosiphon - heat convection type cooling (no water pump). Not positive about later model two cylinders.

I wish I knew more about Mitsubishi.

Thanks Mark. I had heard not to long ago about the Yanmars not having a water pump or thermostat and was just wondering if it was a Yanmar exclusive or if all small japanese tractors were set up that way.

Here is one almost gone and nobody has bid on.

That MT1601D is a nice size.....and color.:D

Durwood,

I don't know too much about that model except that it is the latest imported model (MT series).

Mitsubishi makes the smallest 4 cylinder tractor available to date. It's the 16 HP. That is a small smooth running diesel.

The "D" series is the oldest imported.
The "MT" Series is the newest imported.

And they are Blue.
:cool:

thermostat

My 2350fd does not have a thermostat but does have an active water pump. It is a direct turnover system that is probably sensitive to overworking. I would love nothing more than to find an aftermarket thermostat assembly to limit-but not completely restrict-water flow based on water temp. Anybody have a thermostat?
