Sorry I can not read Swedish , but the pictures are worth a 1000 words. Does the Trans Am belong to you ? Thank you so much for sending the pictures.

Regards from here in the USA

I like the railing for your home!  That's pretty cool for sure.  Along with the rest of your projects, it's great!

It may only be a FireBird but it is one great looking car. You have put a lot of time and mechanical knowledge in the Firebird.

I am really interested in how you pulled this off! This is a weak design with the D series and I had envisioned a coupler like this. Can you share any details? Looks like the hydro pump side is secured by a clamping mechanism of sorts. How about the engine side? Parts machined I assume.

Hi tommyg, sorry for the late reply... Yes, the parts are machined! You could see on my site how the coupler looked like as standard. There is also more pics of when it is modified. The pump coupler have i machined some splines in and also cut it in two plus bolts to secure it.

However this coupler didn't work real well.... I put a lot of load on the front hitch and the tractor / frame bends a bit.... which result in forces on the pumpaxle and the axle sealing started to leak oil. The coupler was too tight! Later i remachined / welded it more like the original coupler with a large rubber plate and with more clearance. Now it works well! =)

      What brand of gauges are D series owners using for replacements?
       
      I would like a matched set for a D200(oil pressure, transmission temp, volts or amps) with lights.
       
      The ones on mine are in bad shape and don't work, except amps.  I think the sending units may be bad or maybe the inside of the gauges are bad from sitting outside for so long.
       
      Thanks.

      Early 70’s C161 with front loader bucket and homemade box blade, non-runnin K321?
       
      Hi, 
      i purchased this tractor a year ago. It ren for an hour and then stopped, with no compression  it had a K341 in it. I replaced the motor with a spare that came with it, now it has died as well. 
       
      We we made a mount and winch set up to use the 3’ box blade. The front bucket/hydraulics work well. I’m in Carson City NV. 
       
      I also have a mower mower deck and a tiller but I do not know their condition. 
       
      Thanks for looking. 
      Jim

      Been wanting to figure out a better way to move dead tractors around - some, just isn't cooperative at being towed - the AC 916H is a great example around here. Since the rear axle is a hydro, it does not disengage fully for some reason and the tires are really shot badly. The 16Auto dug some big holes the last time I tried to move it around, so the idea here is to use the D's 3pt lift and it's size/weight advantage to move other dead tractors. I also wanted a toolbar that could have adapters added for various tasks - such as cultivators, tines, rear blade, ect. I've wanted to build a wrecker for years, just never had the time to do it - this year, I decided I've had enough of my aching back and legs - this needs to get done before I end up in the hospital. Always seems there is no help available when I need it, so now is the time - here is where I'm at as of now...
       

       

       

       

       
      All built from 1/4" thick iron, except the hub mounting plate which 1/2" thick A50 steel. Trailer hub/stub shaft is a 1750lb rated unit. In hindsight, if I ever did it again I'd use a heavier DOM tubing and just turn it to accept bearing races, make the shaft on the lathe and be done with it. Not to mention, I could control the thickness of the assembly a lot better. There are "rear tire carrier builder" parts available out there to do just that with pre-built tubing, the correct bearings and shaft - you just weld it into the square tubing of choice. Still a lot to do - need to make a set of centering springs, locking pins (for toolbar use), tire carrier arms w/tie-down rings, rear blade adapters, ect....
       
      Just thought I'd share a bit - need to some lift testing today, hopefully.

      With a front end loader for these tractors how important is a ladder type subframe? Does the cross piece in the front have to connect where the towers are? Can the frame where the towers are just mount to the frame and go back to the transmission or is that cross piece critical where the towers mount? Could it be set further back with the same effect or would it not be the same? I know it is important to go back to the transmission so if you hit something you don't snap the frame, but how critical are the cross members?
