Am talking to a guy about getting a JD 332 with a Yanmire and he is saying there is diesel fuel leaking out of the fuel block so it wont start??

Easy fix...not so easy...worth my time...what are your guys thoughts?

Are you helping with the repair or are you looking to pick it up? Have you checked out the parts list info on JDParts.com. It might help isolate the problem. WFM has tons of posts on the 330/332 so I would check out the hydro section as a resource.

Was looking to pick it up. I will check out that section...I downloaded the service manual but have had no time to look into anything.

I think the fuel pumps are pricey for Yanmars so you are wise to do some homework before buying it. It could just be a loose or broken fitting or something more serious. As said above, have a look at JDParts.com and you can see all the parts in the fuel system. That may help you identify where the leak is.

While parts are pricy I think it would be a solid machine to invest time and money in. I personally would go for a 322 but if a 332 became available that I could afford I would jump on it.

No idea as to what it is, but great diesel tractors, and worth going to some trouble. When you say "fuel block", are you meaning the injector pump on the engine?

I agree with Daniel, Have to know what he means by fuel block. When I think of the fuel block I think of the block next to the battery where the bulky fuel filter is installed. There are two screw-in valves with o-ring seals on the end. One is to drain old filter and the other is to purge the new filter. "IF" that's where the leak, or air getting into the line is, it would not be to expensive to repair. Will the engine start after the leak is fixed, anybody's guess, that's the bad part....

Probably going to pass this one up... was going to trade the 726 that I rebuilt on it but had someone offer up a 317 that I hear run like a beast. Wish it was a 318 with the power steering but maybe on the next one.
