You are not the only one. This seems to be the unicorn in the community.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I'll continue to look for one until I find a Service Manual, a scan of the book or a copy of it.

Hey, i'll just throw it out there. I will be willing to do so, if either situation presents itself.

At the Yamaha forum a member stated that he was working a copy of the book. I am very hopeful that it will be an upload like what they did with the 624 and 828 Service Manual.

That would great news. I'm a member over there too, but it doesn't seem to get as much traffic as this place. When I get I mower deck wrapped up, I might take another look into the inner workings of this thing. I have a feeling that I have put something in incorrectly. I just hope, that I have done nothing that has created another problem.

I agree, the Yamaha place has a very low traffic I'd say.
You may be able to look at the schematics of this place and look under transmissions 1 and 2. (you can zoom the schematics)
Yamaha YS240 parts .
With all the other projects I have realistically I don't think I'll be able to get to my Rickys this year except to make them somewhat usable (although one of them really is except for the clutch cable that is too tight).

I know the feeling. And yes I have blown up those diagrams and printed them out, but it does not show all the shims that I had. In part, the image of that assembly manual that I believe that you posted, that sold on eBay, would be a gold mine to me. And as the saying goes, a day late and......
