  1. D-200 hydro fluid.

    If it is like the 18 Automatic it should be at the right rear corner on top of the trans-axle.
  2. Say "D"-Man,

                     I have an 18 Auto as you know, should the dynamic brake stop the tractor while traveling in reverse? I usually have to move the motion lever a bit forward to stop. I followed the manual on adjusting the neutral stop, but no matter what, the machine wants to keep rolling while traveling in reverse. Most everyone I have asked just tells me they use the motion control on the 18 Auto. Also, A-Z has a complete turning brake assembly for sale, is that kit a nightmare to install?




    Thank you,

      I know very little about driving and stopping an 18 Automatic, although I have had two 18's, a D-180 and a D-200, I personally have had very little seat {driving} time all but one of the tractors we're purchased not in running condition.  The one that sort of ran only would do so for a short distance, then stop.

      I know the 18's and the D's are designed to stop by simply placing the motion control lever in the neutral position.  

  3. PTO

    In addition to the aforementioned, there are also 2 brackets the Mid-mount and the Front mount, as well as the belt. Please note the Mid-mount must be adjusted whenever adjusting the Front bearing bracket for belt tensioning purposes. If this is ignored and only the Front mount is adjusted it may put the shaft in a bind.
  4. Thanks Richie, it measures ~56 inches from outside to outside of the duals.
  5. D 200 Engine

    Brian, not much advise but if the engine is original it would be a Kohler 20 HP. That is a lot of tractor and accessories to let sit if the hydro was strong, it may be worth rebuilding the engine.
  6. Just a bit of an update, took the tire with the damaged bead areas and the wheel to Best One Tire service center. They dismounted, cleaned and applied some bead sealer prior to remounting and inflating. Temporarily mounted hubs and tire/wheel assemblies to axles to get a couple pics. First is Dual hubs on axles the second one is all 4 temporarily mounted. P.S. Right fender is slightly off level because I did not have the under fender support bolted on.
  7. The 81 d160

    I assume the D-160 Twin Automatic is for the Onan 16 and the D-160 Automatic is for the Kohler 16 single cylinder.

    Matt,that is looking great, if I may ask what did you use for the footrest pads?
  9. PTO Belt Size

    Not sure of the dems. but I have a N.O.S. Wheel Horse Part #103084 belt for sale.
  10. Just took two of the back tires/wheels to a couple of tire shops. One was mounted; but, the area where the valve stem hole was welded shut, was ground down a bit too far so it leaked. Having this dismounted so it can be rewelded. The other has a bit of bead damage and both shop workers advised get a new tire or use a tube. A Carlisle Trac-Cheif in a 27 x 8.5 - 15 (6 plies) doesn't come cheap.
  11. Sarge, I have not load tested the engine/pump coupling yet, I have both the cast coupler and the rubber coupler N.O.S. I know the original was only designed for so much through-put; but, I feel whatever extra weight that all of my modifications will have added is going to be insignificant compared to say a set-up with a back-hoe and front-end loader's weight. One other consideration is that this certainly is not being built to become a worker or driven hard.
  12. I finally have the second pair of hubs removed from the axles. I took them over to my neighbors' who has a 12-ton press; however, it would not even budge them. So I then proceeded to take them to a repair shop that had a 200-ton press. Needless to say, they were out the next day, oh and no heat, just a bit of penetrating oil and a lot of squeaking, + $40.00 (he wanted $50.00). I didn't take any pics, maybe after I get the paint on. Not much of an update but I just wanted to add this.
  13. D180

    Fred, I don't even need to see pics to know that one is underpriced, or at least very reasonable, considering it is: 1.) offered as a make offer, 2.) in PA {closer to you than to me in OH} 2.) it is probably a D-200 if the tank, deluxe seat, and engine are all original 3.) it is listed with a plow, deck, has a 3 - point hitch. and PTO, 4.) equipt w/ turning brakes 5.) rear tire chains and states that the hydro worked fine when ran last. I have purchased 2 - 18 Automatics. a D-180 and a D-200, just parting the package out could double your money.
  14. Got my first wheel horse d160

    Because of the higher RPM speed, the Wheel Horse / Woods 60" finish mower is about all that is compatible to attach to the 3 point.
  15. D160 trans

    Does it look like this?
