Turn the ignition to the on position........ on the top of the fuel filter you will see two bleed screws side by side....... loosen the left bleed screw slowly, a bunch of bubbly fuel will leak out, when the bubbles dissappear and its all fuel leaking out tighten the screw........loosen the right bleed screw, if you have just replaced the fuel filter and the bowl is empty it will now fill up with fuel........when air bubbles dissappear and it is solid fuel flowing out tighten the screw..........Now the injector pump screw.... I'm assuming you have a three cylinder yanmar diesel so if you follow the three metal fuel lines you will find where they meet side by side and are secured to the top of the injector pump with fittings.....there is a screw on the front of the injector pump which you should loosen slowly, and tighten when the leaking fuel is free of air bubbles...............This should do it.

It is common for the 2040 and other similar Deeres to get some air in the system. The brake system uses the tractor's hydraulic fluid.

There are two bleeders on the rear axle housing on the top on either side near the wheels. assuming that there is good clean oil and the rest of the system is working, you slightly loosen the bleeders one at a time and pump each brake pedal independent of each other, hold the pedal down when air stops coming out and it is nothing but clean fluid. Then hold the pedal down and tighten the bleeder. Repeat on other side.
