now for my question:

while i was there we tried to move it, i reached under the tractor and was trying to find the relief valve and thought i found it but when we tried to move it ,it wouldnt move. i looked thru all the pdf's for the tractor and couldnt find anything for it. could someone post a pic of where it is so when i go back out to get it i can release the pressure and we can push it onto a trailer.

In your second photo, on the left of the steering wheel on the dash, there is a T handle. You pull it out and turn or twist it. If it isn't frozen or rusted, it should pull the lever.

If not, the relief lever is just ahead of the rear wheel on the right side of the tractor, underneath.

thanks dave, the T handle pulls out but im not sure if its connected underneath or not. thats why i was wondering what the relief lever looked like so i could look at it and make sure its on there. i looked on line but cant find anything.

Russ and Ryan..... thanks, i cant wait to get it home.

I went all through the manuals I have for the YT and all I found was the knob needed to be pulled out and turned clockwise to lock. Couldn't see anything else about it.

The best I can do is take a photograph of mine on Thursday. It's at Dad's place and I won't be there till Thursday. PM me Wednesday night if you still need the photograph.

I just got home. Here you go.

It is the triangular shaped piece of metal that pivots.
I tried to keep the piece centered in the photographs. If you look, you can see where I took out the end of the pull and turn wire that goes to the dash. In the last picture, I am pushing the the piece towards the front of the tractor. I used a set of vice grips to hold it forward while I pushed. You may be able to just duct tape it.

Let me know if you need anything else. I hope it helps you.
