    D200 .. bought one in 1978, loved it. Now interested in restoring one. Picked up one that, while in pretty rough shape, appears to be complete. Let the games begin!!

  1. GREAT pics, thanks for the work!!!
  2. Back in my truckin' days, I was illegal about 90% of the time, either hot freight, over weight, etc ... as such I had to sneak around the country on the back roads. What a great way to see America. So little is available to be seen from the interstate. Take the little blue lines,eat at the local diners, stop at the corner gas stations ... it makes a better trip!!!
  3. Thanks for taking the time to take great pics, and to post them. Fantastic!!!
  4. This may "sound" better with a well placed comma!! Just sayin'!! lol
  5. Thanks VERY MUCH for taking the effort to do this, I know it detracts from your day, and we really appreciate it!!!!
  6. Just about have tears in my eyes ... really enjoyed last year, but just got a defibrillator installed, and DR said no driving, so here I sit!! ANOTHER example of the unbelievable Wheel Horse family, ... I found a D180 that I would like to use for the V8 project, ... AZ Tractor has it, he is bringing it to the show, and JPWH is going to haul it to his place in GA for me!! Hopefully I can get cleared to drive first of the week so I can go up and get it!! Again, fantastic people!!!
  7. Best batteries for these are those designed for them, and the closest cousin still in use .. all over .. are golf cart batteries. Trojan seems to get the best reviews, with several different grades, the higher the amp-hr the more $$$ ... Great deal on the big ones $89.95 w/ proper core. They have an 18mo warranty. YES, batteries are only as good as their charger!!! http://www.sbsbattery.com/products-services/by-application/transportation-and-mobility/trojan-batteries/golf-utility-vehicles.html
  8. PLEASE CALL ME ABOUT THE D180 .. I DON'T NEED THE MOTOR, IF YOU WANT TO REMOVE IT. I HAVE A FELLOW WHO WILL HAUL IT TO GA FOR ME, I'M IN TAMPA. THANKS .. BOB 352-586-1676
  9. Yep, thats what I was planning on. HOWEVER ... those soft curves are VERY difficult for a NON-PRO body guy ... me .. to master. Truthfully I w2as hoping to find another D200, easy to do what I want with that. Few and far between down here!!!
  10. I'm not going to use the deck, any of it's attaching hardware, mules, belts, pulleys or any part of the PTO system, so it's all yours. I have an 18HP Craftsman, the old one with the HUUUUGE hood, need to see what this guy will give me for it, and what you want to give for the deck, then will see where I'm at.
  11. Thanks buddy ... I am looking for one for the V8, and it will require a TON of hood work to make the finished product ... this hood looks like a nightmare, there are NO straight lines!! Everywhere you look there is a beautiful, subtle, but pain in the ass curve!! I was thinking he was a bit strong, but remember, I'm down here in the land of "nuthin RED"!!! If I have to go to your neck of the woods to get something, I'm lookin at 3-4 tanks of gas at $75 each ... it adds up fast!!!
  12. Found this little ditty a couple days ago ... guy said it's a 1967 model. I have no idea what it s. He wants $400 for it with NO motor. I will not use the deck or PTO stuff, deck mountng, etc ... Any ideas what it is, and what it's REALLY worth???
  13. Thanks guys, appreciate it!!! Actually went and looked at a "birthday present" don't knwo what it is or what to offer!!!
  14. YES we are getting gas!! Pipeline system is nearing completion, and pwr plant conversions are underway, but we're still chewin thru two 99 car trains of coal per day!!!
  15. UPDATE ... The defibrillator is in and working like it should, at least for the pacing part, I hope it never has to shock me!! Doc said "you're a big boy ... it will still put you on your knees"!! Thats bad, but the choice is a backhoe and dirt on my head so .... And the official word is no driving for a month!! Great!! This is gonna suck!!! Oh well ...
