Has anyone found a good reference to cross reference these things? I've got a m4-30 (for the time being) and it seems like something that people keep talking about, but the GOOGLE can't seem to find it.

On further review- same info I've found elsewhere, and doesn't cross reference the tractor models. I can't find anywhere that says x engine was in y model tractor, which is the info needed to get kubota parts. Anyone found it?

The Model M4-30, also called the Atomic Four diesel, a 52 cu in, 25 hp, 4 cylinder, based on the Kubota Y-850 block, was built from 1988 to 1997.
from: History of the Universal Motor Company 4

So, which tractor was made with the Y 850 block?
I haven't figured that out yet.
It may not have been used in any tractors as only 470 were sold.

I found the Kubota equivalent for my 5411 which is the Z-500 [check the dipstick, it should have the Kubota engine # imprinted on it] then a call to my local Kubota dealer resulted in a fax from him of the entire engine chapter of his parts book. I have it in my binder next to my 5411 manual as a cross reference.

Your dealer was willing to help you without tractor type? Mine said with tractor number they couldn't find anything. I tried using the engine block type, but they said they couldn't look it up that way.

Seaner97,

Hate to say this but I think you may be S.O.L. (spit outta luck) on this one.
With only 470 of the M4-30 engine made it is possible that this engine was never used in a tractor.

There is a possibility that you might be able to use the glow plugs & fuel injectors from a similar engine block: say the M-40 (I have no idea if this is a comparable engine block though) which does have a tractor model cross reference.
Someone who knows a lot about Kubota engine blocks could probably make that determination.

Good luck.

useful information!

I have been trying to get parts information from Kubota tractor dealers for my 5411 via email in the Seattle area without success. Where are you located and can you share who your Kubota guy is? It may be worth it to just contact them and have parts shipped if they seem to be so accommodating.

I have a lot of info for Kubota and other non-marinized parts for the Universal M-30 / 5424. If that helps you any, please feel free to email me.

Once you know the tractor model (B6000 for your engine?) a useful resource is the online parts diagrams on the Kubota USA website

Kubota Tractor Corporation - Parts List

Once there, click on the "accept" then enter your Tractor model into the search and you will see all the sub-models. Select one to go to the parts manual.

When shopping for parts, I simply copied the part number from the manual into a google search and usually got plenty of results.

I to have a M4-30 Kubota block #Y-850 and am searching for new injectors. I have Nissan Denso 3340 7J injectors and ask has anyone found replacements?

I believe the injectors,as well as many other parts are generic with many of the smaller Kubota engines.
The Y850 was never used in a tractor, apparently built just for Universal. You're pretty much SOL for parts that aren't shared between models, you'll have to get them from the thieves at 'beke.

The injectors are available on E-bay for $54 each, brand new. Part no. 70000-65208. Look at the pictures. If they look the same they are the right ones.
You could also take one in to your local Kubota dealer and have them match them up. My local guy charges $71 each.

Capt.,
Thank you for information, however I'm having trouble locating injectors on ebay. What are you searching Kubota parts, Westerbeke, other?
