  1. What started out as a simple task of moving my 6-1/2' x 12' utility trailer to unload it's contents back into the Shed Repair Project after building a new floor turned out to be a really bad day . I figured the weight of the trailer and it's load was probably around 2,500lbs or more and the big D-180 should be able to handle it . Used the 3pt hitch and an adapter to lift the trailer tongue and off I went...until I got to the end of the north drive and the pump coupling on the hydro failed - badly . In hindsight - the trailer probably weighed closer to 4,000lbs the way it felt behind the truck ... Now , the trailer had to be taken off the tractor and put on it's jack ....which didn't work out too well loaded that heavily . Since the trailer was built with 2x3 angle iron on the tongue it decided to fold itself into a pretzel - despite the wheels being blocked tight so it couldn't move . It fell over and I had to use the HI-Lift to get it off the ground . The sight of the trailer falling over in the rear view camera on the Dodge is still well embedded in my memory - I knew that was going to be another large project . The coupling had an earlier repair from last winter's failure - so a pto pin was driven through the hole to get it out back to my work area to be fixed later . It made the short trip , but just barely and the tow valve was frozen tightly . As it turned out , the damage to the D was a much bigger issue..and cost 3 times as much in total . The pic doesn't do the damage any justice - that entire tongue was bent badly - Sand blasted , new tongue built and waiting for paint - Painted , as it sits now awaiting the lights , wiring and re-install the floor decking . All the while - got more work done on the D's pump problem . Found a great used pump , as well as a spare coupling in good shape . After a lot of machine work ($$$) we came up with a solution and everything was back together... After all this I found that both the original mufflers were completely shot and falling apart - so another project ... Bought a pair of 180* mandrel bends , two cone transitions and a pair of @jimkemp 8" mufflers (very nice, btw) . Fabricated the flanges for the engine's exhaust ports , as well as the pipes for the stacks - Spent a lot of time rolling the engine over on the starter to slowly prime the pump back up and finally , after several months - fired Big Ugly to test the exhaust before painting the stacks . No leaks from the hydro thanks to some new o-rings and backer rings from @pfrederi on the hydro manifold , that was a big relief . A bit shocked at the sound of the big opposed twin - somewhat like a Harley running on the choke or something - but overall not obnoxious or too loud .... D180 startup.mp4 If you don't want to wait for the MP4 to load - here's the YouTube link - I don't think the camera's microphone will show the sound too well , but so far I like it . Took a ride around the block , nice having this beast back up and running , finally . Now to finish that dumb trailer....pretty much wasted nearly the whole summer getting all of this done plus the hours at work . I'm about ready for a break but need to get ready for winter . Sarge

  3. My D 200

    From the album Darrell

  4. ,Hi all... I bought a D-250 a while back and I really like it but she's got a couple ghost problems that I can't seem to wrap my head around. I believe that it's a '76. It has the Renault engine in it. So three different times now... I've hit a small stump, stopping the mower dead in it's tracks. All three episodes were moderately violent. In two of the occasions, it stalled the mower after I disengaged the deck and backed off of the stump. So here's where it gets weird. After each incident, the mower would no longer start. If I pulled the choke all the way on, it'd fire up and rev to the sky... Like sketchy high rpms which all three times was the only way I could limp it back to the barn. After completing cooling down and tweaking the fuel mixture screw back and forth, I've been able to get it to run well again... Sometimes I can ease the choke off and the governor goes crazy surging off and on... But in most cases, it simply won't run with the choke off. So what in the heck does this have to do with the impacts? The only theory I currently have is that it jolts the fuel tank and fuel filter badly enough to shake up some contamination... But that's just a wild guess. It's also definitely temperature related, because I can mess with carb settings enough to fix it so long as it isn't up to temperature yet. So there it is... Any of you guys ever heard of a crash related fuel issue? I feel like I'm going crazy. I know I'm missing something here in the troubleshooting. Thanks a bunch! Jacob
  5. Hello again... So I just posted recently concerning a stuck clutch on my D-250. I pulled the deck, inspected everything, got frustrated, posted on Red Square and got some pretty solid advice. So under the guidance of Garry and Squonk, I was able to "unstick" the clutch by jolting the thing loose in top gear. It worked perfectly... Except... Now the thing is physically stuck in high range and the lever won't budge. It definitely worked just fine only moments before the clutch trick. Did I break something in the gear box? I did remove and reinstall the deck which I initially thought may have been installed wrong and could have been making physical contact with the linkage, but upon further inspection, doesn't appear to be although I admit I can't see it all. I was SO happy... Lol... It was working again and now this... Seems to be my kind of luck. Any tips or tricks for this issue? Thanks so much for your replies ahead of time. I have also apparently developed a completely unrelated fuel issue which I'll post separately on the engine forum. Thanks y'all... I really appreciate it. I DID manage to get the grass cut... I don't really like mowing in high range 1st gear but it was the only option... I guess some good came out of the situation. Jacob
  6. Hey guys and gals... Had something super weird happen. I went to start my D-250 (Renault Engine) and the clutch won't work. So, instead of mowing for my 4th of July cookout, I pulled the 60" deck out and climbed underneath. The clutch linkages are intact and the throw out lever was a little bit loose on the adjustment rod. I adjusted the slack out of the throw out lever and prayed... No change. I fear something is internally wrong with the clutch. The weird thing is that it worked fine when I last used it. How could something break sitting still? I'm frustrated and confused. I have a parts breakdown for the clutch assembly and I am dreading having to pull the whole motor to work on it. Any advice? Am I missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Happy 4th everyone!
  7. NOS 56" D-Series Blade

    This blade is complete and never used. $400 was dealer cost ages ago, and that's all it will take to pick up this huge blade. I will be traveling to Denver from WNY starting Sunday and would be willing to meet somewhere along the I-70 corridor (see my other post in the hauling area) to deliver for an extra $75.
  8. D160 single cylinder

    Candidate for restoration. Runs and drives needs a battery, oil change, cleaning and brake adjusted. The brake is very lose and dosent work that great. The tractor has a new head gasket and deck belt. Starter and coil replaced by original owner. I have the original coil. I also have the grill to the tractor. No 3pt hitch or rear pto, tire chains included. Want it gone asap. If you email me a number i can send you a video of it driving and midlift and pto working.
  9. deck height

    A couple years ago, I did a couple modifications to put the 60" WH deck under my D-180 to replace the flimsy 48" deck it came with. The conversion went perfectly, but there's one thing I can't figure out, and that is why I can't get the deck to cut any higher than about 2 3/4". Anyone else do this same conversion who can chime in on whether or not that's to be expected with this deck?
  10. Brantly Backhoe for Sale

    Hi everyone, I have a 600 series Brantly Backhoe for sale. It's currently mounted to a D250 and in good working condition. I'm not sure what the original kit model number was, because I believe it was originally intended for a Bolens or Simplicity tractor, but has since been repainted and touched up to be red and fit for the Wheel Horse. Most hoses and many fittings and hardware pieces are less than 2 years old. Some weak points have been repaired with fabrication work done by a professional structural fab company (PWF Enterprises in Phoenix, NY). I just replaced one of the cylinders with a brand new Prince cylinder (still have the original). I'm not in a rush to sell, but I would like to entertain any reasonable offers. I am asking $3,500. The backhoe comes with a subframe. It does not have a pump, as this model shares the PTO pump with the loader. I can address questions about how to move forward with getting a pump connected if you don't have one on your machine, already. I completely replaced the pump, couplers and fittings, hoses and bracket currently being used for the loader. Thanks for looking! PM me or send an e-mail with any questions or interest.

  23. Need Side Tin Engine Covers For D180

    I'm looking for some side tin covers that cover the heads on the Kohler engine for my D180. If you have some let me know. Thanks!
  24. Lookin for help

    Well here's my situation I have this 76 d1-60 that I have about $200 into plus countless hours of work to get it mowing again. Everything went fairly well last summer. But in the fall I noticed a slow drip coming from the transaxle. And the starter went out also shortly after the leak. i need a mower that I can count on. I love this one when it works. So should I sell or take it in to fix all the issues. And can anyone tell me a ball park number as to what it's worth compared to what it would cost to fix it. the bad... leak in transaxle leak at hydro motor and drive shaft (I rebuilt the hydro motor following a tutorial on RS but didn't replace the seal where the shaft exits the motor.) bad starter the good.. it has never seen snow it was only mowed with and alway been in climate controlled storage. it has a newer motor as of 1996(linnamar twin 790) with less than 1500hrs have all original manuals what do you think I should do. Im not made of money so as much as I would love to a complete restore is not an option.
  25. I was wondering if anyone has done any research on a possible replacement for the standard hydraulic cylinder on the D-160, 180 and 200 series. I've got a leak in the seal on mine and while I could probably find a replacement, the potential that it would leak too, is pretty high. Seems to me there ought to be something that would fit out there and would be guaranteed not to leak.
