    I have a customer that needs a starter but I need to ID this dozer to get on the right path. He does not have one for me to compare it to. There are no markings other than what is pictured and I have never heard of a 295KY engine. Bob Rooks, you’re help would be greatly appreciated if you have any insight.

    I can not seem to delete one of these pictures to have room to upload the picture of the actual dozer.

    Adam,

    I found this site:

    http://www.dek-engine.com/

    maybe that will get you headed the right way.

    Other than that, physical dimensions of the old starter would probably be the way to go. Some pictures of the starter removed from the engine might help too.

    Good luck,

    Stuart

    I was going to say that it might be a two cylinder version of the TY395 engine, the bore being the same, but the stroke is 10 mm longer, and the governed speed is lower. That said, the starter may be the same. You say that the customer doesn’t have the original starter? Wow. You will have to measure from the flywheel housing face to the forward face of the flywheel and compare that to the pinion projection of a new starter. Also, the ID of the hole in the flywheel housing compared to the pilot size on a new starter housing, and the clock positions of the mounting bolts, and if there is any solenoid interference. If it’s an older model dozer it’s probably a Guilin (Yuchai bought them out years ago). A picture of the dozer would help in verifying this. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. Have never heard of a KY series engine, so it’s  likely to be a discontinued model. If you have the dozer in your shop I’d try to fit a TY engine series starter to it.

    My guess is it’s a later model Guilin, 1992 to 1998. Yuchai acquired Guilin (named after the town Guilin) sometime in the mid/late 90’s. It’s not clear exactly when, but they remained unchanged until 2001, but still offering the 20, 30, and 40 hp versions but with the TY series Jiang Dong (a diamond with JD cast in the block) engines. The original YCT-406 40 hp version was discontinued in 2004.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

    Good luck Adam, but I’d still try to see if a TY290 engine starter would fit. Let me know how you make out, I’m curious now.
