    A friend of mine has a Yanmar B50 and one great thing about yanmar is that they put multiple filters on the fuel system. That saved his machine when the fuel tank got rusty. I would suggest you take a good look inside your tanks to see if there is rust. It's a good idea to keep the fuel filled up during the summer months when moisture in the air, inside the tank, will condense and water will cause rust.

      @Andrew Camarata They sell bio-cides that are suppose to kill bacteria that grow inside of fuel tanks. Perhaps that would help prevent problems.
      I knew a mechanic who said he had a large set of steel balls (no pun intended LOL) that he used to put inside of tanks where he would shake them around ( no really ) to get the rust out ( ha ! )

      When I got that machine a dirty tank kept clogging filters. I had to remove the tank and pressure wash it out. This was 6 years ago and I have not had any problems since.

              Andrew on the pin you polled off your escalator the pins that used to make for deferent company’s. I used to cut the shaft 1/2 longer ea side turn the shaf 1/4 snap ring measure your snap ring make it fifteen to twenty thousand deep. On the end of the drill a hole so you put grease insert drill tap and drill small drill 3 1/2in Deep major how deep you drill your middle Hole, drill a hole on the top of the shaft until hit the hole in the middle of the shaft. I came up with this when I started to make all the shafts. Every contractor loved them. They told me they little longer,

                Not sure if anyone has commented this ... but I has a Yanmar diesel tractor. ... Needed a few bolts and other things and found out Yanmar make the John Deere engines. I got may different parts by just comparing. Not sure this would help in your situations.

                    Andrew, work ethics and mechanical skills are amazing tell us how long you have been performing mechanical work? My Dad was a Master Mechanic himself on Cats and other heavy stuff. I do believe if Dad were alive he sure would be impressed. Keep doing what you do and best wishes for a great future.

                        Hi Andrew, in one of your other videos you said that you had to put your name and business on your truck how come you haven't got them on your other machines like your excavators if you do people would easily recognise your equipment

                                    Andrew Camarata Lol. Sounds easy enough. I’m new to heavy machinery, but I’ve been inspired by your channel to start from the ground up at 35 years old and pursue my dream. My goal is to buy some land, build a workshop, buy a truck and trailer and start looking for deals on used machinery I can fix up and dig myself a giant lake. You have a beautiful spread up there. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I wish my Dad had taught me how to do all the useful stuff you are able to do. I have really learned a lot from your channel.

                                                      I don't ever plan on working on engines or equipment, I have used basic equipment around the farm and I drive so having some kind knowledge about maintenance saves me so much money in the long run.
                                                      For instance, some one tried to sell me rim's for a ford truck, because one had a notch in it like some one hammered it 🤷‍♀️. I looked then instantly said : that can be ground out. surprised myself even, and it did grind out lol
