  1. D250 For Sale or For parts

    SOLD! Runs and holds antifreeze. Stuck in low speed range, the high/low gearbox needs to come apart. The 4-speed manual transmission works fine. I bought it to restore, but I don’t have the time anymore. Has a good belly mower (model: 65-60XS01), no rust thru and no rust repairs, even the sheet metal belt cover is in good shape and deck is complete. Tractor’s plastic rear fender has typical small cracks, but no plastic missing. Charging system works. Even the battery tray is in good shape. Comes with an “Original” Owner’s Manual, Factory Service Manual, Parts Manual for tractor & mower, and Dealer Prep Instructions. Tractor isn’t missing very much. Bought it a year ago, but it’s just sitting here taking up room. I’m in the extreme southeast corner of Indiana, just west of Cincinnati Ohio. E-mail me for more pics. Red Square members get to see the ad first. Bill billybanman@yahoo.com
  2. Need D-250 Tranny Help

    Wow! I feel like such a dumb-dumb. I received the original service manual with the tractor and (some how) overlooked the entire section on the transaxle. Thanks for the wake up call. I think I need to take up drinking. I'll look at it tomorrow. It's time for the burgers & grill. Thanks Garry. Actually, you did provide the answers for me.

  3. Need D-250 Tranny Help

    I need some transaxle help with a D-250 I just bought. Wasn't running when I bought it, so I couldn't test drive it. Had been sitting for 3 years. It's a manual tranny and it appears to be stuck in low speed range. I haven't been able to find any pictorial blow-ups on the net, so I'm looking for someone that has been inside these gearboxes. The engine driveshaft connects to the spline shaft in the front of the gearbox. This spline shaft come thru a cover plate bolted to the front of the transaxle assembly. There is also a slide bar sticking out the front of the cover plate. This is actuated by the high/low speed selector. The slide bar has a bracket welded to the end of it, so it must be removed with the cover plate. I believe the slide is seizing in the cover. I tried soaking it with PB Blaster for a few days, but it didn't help. Maybe there's an o-ring in the bore. I don't know without a parts blow-up. Am I working in the right direction? Anyone been inside one of these beasts? I've been sorta holding off until I have a better working knowledge of it. I did try to search the Gutbrod name in Germany. Didn't find anything useable. If all else fails, I'm in need of a replacement manual transaxle. A little help please!
