    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. Balancing Gears - in or out

    Don't know if you have this, want it, or have a place for it, but it is very well done. ...
  2. How did you make out over there??
  3. Hey gang. Got pwr and cable back THUR. Sorry, should have checked in sooner. We are very lucky here. The Beast lives in a garage at 11FT, my old trailer is at 25FT, but surrounded by 65FT tall FL Long Leaf Pines. NO DAMAGE, NO FLOODING!!! With packing up stuff and getting out, then getting back in, my ticker is workin pretty hard. Nitro patches on top of each other!! LOL Things starting to get back to normal here, I know we have some other guys further south, and a few in Houston as well. Hope they all were at least as fortunate as us!!
  4. 1962 short clip, Pittsburgh PA

    Pulled from home 8mm movie, spring, 1962 wheelhorse.mp4 I can't seen to add comments to answer questions as normal on this thread. So, don't know why it will not play on an ipad, but since there are only 15 or 20 of them in existence, well,.... secondly this is ME, when I was 7, keep in mind I was 6-5 in the 7th grade!! Mom was out raking the yard, and Dad had just got his new fancy 8mm camera, so he was out filming the action!!
  5. Found this on an old 8mm home movie, ME, showing my trim around a tree technique, all be it a bit rough, but not that bad for a 7 year old!! 1962!! wheelhorse.mp4
  6. Red Square 2018 Calendar Project

    1978 D200
  7. Still makes me sick to the stomach. This is ALL my fault!!! See Hank was a cool enough guy to agree to haul a D skeleton from the show to his house for me, and since it was hogging up the front of his traier, his two beauties were stuck at the rear, and got crunched. No favor for me ... and he has a crunched trailer, with 2 good horses!! Thats what you get for doing a favor!! LOL I hope .. no ... pray that this all works out for the best!!!
  8. Some Pics from Zeek

  9. 2017 Friday/Saturday pics

    GREAT pics, thanks for the work!!!
  10. Jrblanke's Big Show Pics

    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!!!
  11. Dell's Big Show Pictures

    Thanks for taking the time to take great pics, and to post them. Fantastic!!!
  12. I Love A Parade!

    This may "sound" better with a well placed comma!! Just sayin'!! lol
  13. I Love A Parade!

    Thanks VERY MUCH for taking the effort to do this, I know it detracts from your day, and we really appreciate it!!!!
  14. Who else can't go?

    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!!!
  15. Batteries

    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
