    I have a Daewoo DS801 with a yanmar 52 hp diesel non turbo
    We use it to load mulch in the yard and the flywheel went bad(Chewed Up)
    Called bobcat because only place to order parts thru and they want 1250.00 for a new one plus frieght from korea.
    My question is
    1. Anyone know of a skidsteer salvage yard?
    2. Anyone have any 801 parts?
    Your help is appreciated

    Just to make sure im understanding.
    you mean physically take the flywheel and match
    it to one in a automobile?
    Im not a flywheel expert but this flywheel isnt a thin light 20lb flywheel from a chevy 350
    this thing is 4-6 inchs thick and weighs couple hundred pounds
    not being sarcastic just wanting to understand

    if your issue is the ring gear ,sometimes you can flip them around ,I have done several but never on a yanmar .If its welded,you can grind off the welds and flip it re-weld ,but often you just heat the ring gear and flip it and let it cool .

    I dont think its the ring gear the flywheel teeth are worn off. And We are wondering if the flywheel is imbalanced because at low thorttle the whole machine shakes.
