Might as well show this one too since this one is a worker. Not as an entry but just to put it in a thread that's about customs.

Here's my homebuilt backhoe which has done plenty of work for a little machine. Spent 2 summers of spare time outside on the ground cutting, drilling and welding to get it together. By the end, I was sick of cutting, drilling and welding! Spent the winters researching the net for hydraulic info as this was my first time ever attempting to use them and building something this big from scratch.  Built using the plans from PF Engineering.com

This is my little C-85.  I bought it mainly for the plow due to the snow we get here in the winter.  She started out a little rough.  Not nearly as much effort in restoring her as some of the works of art I see on here, but then I wanted a worker.

I replaced the fender pan with a metal one from a later unknown model that I bought off ebay.  The plastic fenders were so rotten they would crumble at the slightest touch.  I used the original plastic mounting base as a spacer for the metal one and only needed to cut out for the fuel tank.  Worked perfect.

I wouldn't really call the Craftsman plow a modification, but more of an adaptation.  It works great though.

When it's all together the Little Horse looks pretty serious.

36_15_271_zps52c3ab1c.gif  Yeah, that chair has almost run it's course.  It is starting to disintigrate.  I already took the arm rests off, couldn't get my fat butt in the chair with 'em on!  I have another seat that resembles the two-piece WH seats to go on.  I just need to cover it with vinyl first so I can just wipe it off and go when it is covered with snow.

Thanks to everyone who voted!

 

This could be one that I do again since there may be enough spare parts around. It did get lots of attention at the shows and apparently people like the style of it. It's just getting tougher and tougher to come up with new ideas for something that hasn't already been done.

      Hello
       
      I have a D 200 and my sons have been cutting the lawn this summer and nerver check th oil and the seized the motor. I freed the motor up and it runs fine until there is a load. I checked the Compression  and I have one dead hole. ;-(   it broke my heart. I have a Mower, tiller, and snow thrower.
       
      Any Advise? Should I buy a motor? Or rebuild or scrap?? I liked the machine. But I dont want to dump a ton of money into it if it is questionable. I am not sure if it is a Kohler or Onan??  Any thoughts
       
      Thank you

      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 ....

      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 .

      ,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
