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! =)

      This is my 1974 Wheel Horse D-200 with a 20hp twin cylinder Kohler, rear pto, turning brakes, 3pt hitch, ag tires all around, weights all around and a 54" snow/dozer blade! also have a rear finish mower, reat roto tiller, and a Didier 50" sickle bar!

      Geez, it seems like it's been forever since I've been on here. Hope you guys didn't miss me too much. Based on the fact that I had no notifications waiting, I'm guessing not. Lol!
       
      Anyway, I'm thinking of putting an electric clutch on my D-180. Some of you might remember that I replaced the original Kohler K series 18 hp twin with a 25 HP Kohler Command when I broke a rod in the original engine and could not find any replacements. With the modifications I had to make on the clutch linkage, and the fact that I've also outfitted this machine with a 60" deck, the existing manual clutch just can't generate the pressure against the plate that I'd like. The clutch surfaces are fine. Does anyone have any experience with an electric clutch on your D series? I want to maintain the 2 pulley system to drive the rear PTO. What do I need to know? How the heck to those things enen attach to the engine? They all seem like they're earmarked for a specific machine, but are they somewhat universal in design? Some photos would help. I've got a 1 1/8" shaft to work with. Plenty of length to make any forward/aft adjustments.

      I picked this jewel up yesterday at a John Deere dealer, it's a 224 case ,but it has a 16hp Onan on it, and someone put Power steering on it. It has a few leaks, but runs great. even has a joy stick.

      Toro Front End Loader with Weight Box for Xi series tractors. The loader is in excellent condition and was removed from a tractor with 70 hours. It is complete with all the parts including the stands. I will also consider a package deal with my Toro GT550 (522Xi). The GT550 has 1,000 hours and has some cosmetic issues, but runs and operate good.

      Fast question ...
       
      Per the IPL for the 6-1141 and 6-1131 54" & 56" blades - how is everyone pinning the rear blade lock arms so they can't unlock the blade ? I've ran into problems with this thing before wanting to unlock itself and drop the blade half off the tractor. It seems when back dragging rough pavement, especially if I back into a snow bank the thing is moving those locks out of position and allowing the frame to drop off. The only reason it stays at least somewhat under the D is the lift arm , but getting it back into position is no fun due to the weight of this thing and especially out in the snow/cold weather. Last time I had to drag the thing back to a clear area so I could wrestle it back into position, lift the frame and lock it again. I did wire them shut for now, but don't trust it and I use it to back drag quite a bit on rough areas I don't want to ram the cutting edge against and risk damaging the rear axle differential or anything else. Mine has been rebuilt with a new cutting edge of 1055HC and the frame is highly beefed up - most of it is now boxed in and the thing has gained nearly 50lbs of steel. It cuts great, almost too good but that random dropping it off is starting to irritate me - need some ideas here...
       
      The smaller 42" and other frames lock from the other direction - so to speak. The brackets are also drilled to accept large hair pin cotters to keep those locks in place - I see no way the bigger blade frame is designed for that, unless I'm missing something ?
