  1. D250 Front PTO belts

    Mine is a 78 model. What i did originally was cut a long belt to the size i thought it needed to be. When i got home with the belts they gave me they were way too loose. I then noticed they gave me 3/8 wide belts when the one i measured with was 1/2". I now switched the 3/8 for 1/2 but still need to try them. The ones they gave me are 40 1/8. I will try the 39 7/8 if they dont fit. Thanks Guys...
  2. D250 Front PTO belts

    Could someone please tell me the size of the front/mid pto belts for the D250? I'm having a heck of a time trying to match one up. Thanks

    Finally finished the restoration on my D250!
  5. 79 D-250

    79 D-250 with hydraulic front plow, tiller, and 60" cutting deck. I've gone over just about every piece of this tractor with the exception of the engine and trans. Runs good. Has 60 pounds of oil pressure and 150 pounds of compression in each cylinder but does smoke a bit. Trans shifts perfect with no noises. I replaced every bearing on the front PTO and wheels. I took this down to the frame rails and painted every piece while making sure everything worked as it should. I also gave the same attention to the cutting deck, plow, and tiller. All new tires with 26x14's on the back. New seat, new decals all around, new switches and lights on the dash. I even replaced just about every nut and bolt! I put an incredible amount of time and money into this tractor, but now its time for a new project. Asking $4500 or best reasonable offer. Call or text Rich at 336-301-0779 (I will put more pics in my album)

  8. Irishman, do you have any parts for 94' 520 H?

  9. 10 hr road trip ! What could it be?

  10. Set of Wheel Horse chrome hubcaps

    Are these for 8" and 12" rims?
  11. Anyone have a Ford Flex ?

    I have a Black 2013 F-150 crew cab 4x4 with a 5.0L for sale if you're interested.
  12. I just read through your build from the beginning. What an amazing job!!! I love the thought that went into every detail with amazing execution. I look forward to seeing how the trailer turns out! You're an inspiration my friend!!! God Bless!
  13. I had a C-145 that had pieces actually broken completely off and I had excellent results with fiberglass mat on the underside to secure the pieces. I roughed up the surface with course sandpaper to give the fiberglass something to bite into. On the top side I used a disk sander to dig into the plastic over the cracks followed by fiberglass and then a skim coat of body filler. The repair was actually stronger than the original plastic.
  14. I'm rewiring the whole tractor which is why a more detailed wiring diagram is needed. I'm sure most of it is the same on models with an alternator or a generator except for the charging system.
