  1. 18 Auto, D-160,180,200 Frame Access Panel-Chbg, PA

    I have all this & more, almost or maybe all body parts, complete 1" steering set up, etc. most of it i n good condition.
  2. Help identify a Hydraulic Cylinder

    Add on kit for the 1257 type Machine?
  3. It's back!

    Half the listings on ebay are multiples, worse than the listings here.
  4. Wheele

    I have bent the spindle arms a little bit with a big adjustable wrench if it is not too far out. (With the tie rod arm holes).
  5. Steering Wheel for 520 HC

    I have a "Toro" steering wheel like 300, 400 & 500 series use.
  6. Sunstrand hydro pistons

    Being a certified machinist, I'm sure you know they are hardened & lapped to dedicated cylinders in the rotating group. You would need to start with a cylinder body, which should not be scarce. Might help some of us keep some of the hydro's alive instead of parting them out.
  7. Just got two inches in Perry County PA

    Does he need a headlight bucket for lights?
  8. Wheelhorse C-160 Hydraulic Controller

    That spool could also be stubbed & saved.
  9. D200 trans axle

    If that is the "bull" gear, I have one.It would have to be drilled out as per service bulletin and derusted, and I would have to be sure it is 1 1/8 flanges. If it is needed I may be able to drill it.
  10. Christmas Surprise

    His work & efforts on it, will greatly increase his appreciation of it, and if I were in your shoes, that would be a priceless reward from the project!
  11. D160 Won't Start

    Does this coil need an external resistor? Usually they will run without, but maybe not this time. It may say on the coil one way or the other.
  12. New to me loader

    What is the tractor? They are getting scarce in some areas, seems like that's all anyone wants to do anymore. I have salvaged a couple in the past, that that had "chunks" go through the gear motors in hydrogear units & ruin the castings as well as gears. The only unit I ever bought to "part-out" is a "D" series which had sat in a salvage-junk yard for several years and sat in another individuals pine forest several years before it was bought and stripped of the backhoe, loader & rear tires & left to rot where it sat. (I still have "D" series parts running out my ears) Guess I'm just too conservative, or is it that I'm too stupid to feel good about destruction of good useful tools of ANY kind that may help someone who might be in need. Sorry 'bout the rant, I just see a world of abuse & greed, & pray JESUS calls HIS true believing church home SOON.
  13. Raider 12 Old switch to new

    You said you upgraded 10 amp to 15. i have done that ion the past, but I have a question. How did you know it was a 10 amp? The only Kohlers I have seen on WH's were breakerless ignition, and I don't remember when I changed the first one, but before 1980. I changed ign. switch & nothing else, but added points, cover, gasket, push-rod coil, condenser, & two wires. I ask because there are no common parts, as flywheel's & stators are different. in each set-up, as well as the rectifier. (I'm still learning) Maybe there was a change I lost out on. ?????
  14. I guess I must have done a GREAT BIG NO-NO on a tractor I painted years ago, but I put stainless flat washers between components I was reassembling after painting to separate them for blowing out dirt, spills & whatever. (Moisture could dry & not oxidize bare metal from vibration) It worked pretty well, but over the years most of it has gone amiss due to hurried service etc. I thought the cleaning was easier & better, blew off water etc. after a bath (which is very rare for me.) One word of caution, watch painting where fumes can get to open flame. Just a reminder. While I was still working I saw a very large quantity of paint booth filters pulled outside an assembly building, and I saw them go up in a fireball after they had started drying. Nothing but concrete lot around but still surprised me that fire dept. was not on stand-by as much safety as the co. stressed! But it made a believer out of me.
  15. 18 Auto Setting "true neutral".

    I resorted to a center punch with a "hollow" grind and while some didn't look so pretty, none of the discs came off. If I need to do it again, I think it will be with a good epoxy.
