Oooo, those are cool! I've seen a couple in person and always thought they looked pretty neat. I believe they are all shaft drive too.

Be sure to take lots of pictures when you get it!

Sweet! Looks like it's in great shape! I believe the engine is a Yamaha made horizontal shaft isn't it? I'd love to see some pictures of the engine and drivetrain.

Pretty neat looking! The engine cylinder seems to have a real slant to it, almost like the Honde GX and clone engines. Wonder if they have a big enough air box on that thing? lol!

ordered the gasket on ebay. i was happy to be able to find it but WOW! 16 dollars and 6 dollars shipping. but oh well gotta have it. the tractor is quite nasty from where the oil has been leaking mixing with the grass and leaves over the years so i'm hoping to get it and the engine cleaned and pressure washed tomorrow yahmaha yt 3600 20190219

finally got around to stripping it down and getting it pressure washed yahmaha yt 3600 20190311
yahmaha yt 3600 20190310
would be a good one to build a trail mower out of if it wasn't in such nice shape the frame is really heavy duty but that wasn't the plan ! just restore. I am however wanting some opinions on repainting it. I Know it looks really sweet in the pics but it does have some rust spots scratches and the decals have some cracks. so i was thinking about doing a custom paint job ! what do you think YA or Nah !

I'd go with a black frame and a darker yamaha blue. The same blue color as yamaha quad plastics.

Looks like a nice, well built frame there! What's the steering like on this unit? Is it a lawn tractor style pinion and sector gear, or an actual small steering box of some sort?

That's pretty cool! I've never seen a drive-shaft hydro before.

The cub cadet 1440 I pulled my steering gearbox from had one. Pulled a horizontal vanguard off of it too but that’s another project...

Personally, I like the light blue (it is different) and I would leave the paint and decals untouched while just taking care of the mechanical stuff. I am partial to the natural distressed look. The frame could get a fresh coat of black.

We have all seen Antiques Road Show, once you refinish something it loses all its value! lol!

I was thinking the same as everyone else about it looking like my Honda HT3813, but I guess these are both Japanese tractors, so it makes sense that they would be similar. Are there any other Japanese lawn tractors that you know of?

Kabota makes some pretty hefty LTs, they call some of them GTs but when compared to the old stuff they're not hefty at all. They have some LTs that come with diesel engines from the factory, pretty neat. But they're all pretty weak hydros and have thin frames and what not.

Shaft driven hydro's are quite common with older GT's. John Deere, Cub Cadet, Bolens, Ford, etc. They all had 'em at one point.
