I just got this 74 D-180 for $450.

Seems to run good, needs choke lever, pto belt, gas tank is a cobble-job, hydros seem to work.

Just wanted to see what you folks thought. What would you pay?

Also where can I find a front end loader? They seem hard to come by.

Sorry for cut-off pics....I didn't take them!

Check with @elliot ness he may have a front-end loader....If he doesn't now, he more than likely will soon!

I woulda paid 450 for that tractor all day! You got a great deal. Around here guys want 1000+ for a lot worse shape and no 3 pt or brakes! Stay on the hunt for a FEL and you will eventually find one. :text-coolphotos:

      Ok - the UL-1 batteries won't cut it for turning over the big cast iron Kohler twins - got one that is only 6mo old and it's basically shot already . One start cycle and if it doesn't fire it's done - needs to be jumped . Since it's mounted above the Sundstrand pump and so close to that thumper engine I'd assume the vibration is just killing the plates . At a rate of 2 batteries per year - that doesn't work out very well and the rotating mass of that engine just draws far too much from the battery - even with a new starter .
       
      From the BCI group number chart and some dimensions of what can fit in the tractor physically I come up with a Group 26 battery - what is everyone using in their twin cylinder D's ??
       
      I see an equivalent Deka runs about $80 - anyone tried that size on one of these D's ...?

      Getting my mess of a d160 rebuilt and found the source of play in my steering.
      This may also explain the oddball rim.
       
      Bottom race. Or is it races now?

      So I went on a hunt for a replacement. Wow those are expensive. No standard bearings even close.
      Turns out 3/4 x 1-3/8 x 1/2 wheel bearings fit perfect because of their flange. Well almost. The ID is a little off.
       
      Adjustment needed. I already ground the lip off. I believe the lips were to hold the bearings for assembly.

       
      The flange of the bearing sits nicely in the adjustment cup.
       
      Looking down into the cup with bearing in it. Flange side down.

       
      Worm alignment with sealed bearing in cup on left. Same as new.

       
      The cotter pin hole doesn't line up but there is enough room to drill a new one.
       
      End view with bearing installed.

       
      To install both top and bottom bearings you have to grind or turn a good portion of the shaft and the lip on the other side.
      It's only .030 so not to bad.
       
      Both bearings installed. Fit nicely against the shoulder of the race on the worm.

       
      Worm alignment with both bearings installed. Old outer races removed. tightened snug. Still has full travel and is more centered.

       
      No way to install cotter pin. but my alignment cup was so tight it will not come loose. I'm lucky I got it out.
       
      End cap with both bearings installed.

       
      Hi-tech cap removal tool one ground down wood bit.

       
      The sealed bearings sit up against the shoulder of the race and the bearing flanges face away from the worm.
      The flange may need adjusting depending on who made it. There is no inner seal so it can be greased like usual.
      I'm not sure how they will hold up to thrust loads but for 6 bucks I'll risk it.
      I didn't grind near the original races at all so it can be put back to original if need be, minus some metal anyway.
       
      Welp, back to painting parts.......

      I've been looking for a while. The bolt holes just line up and the wire is a little tight between the fender and light. No drilling though.
      They were at Rural King. I think about three bucks each. Optronics MC42RS RED  Marker/Clearance.
