    Finally got the engine in my daughters suburban after a year. Few small things left but end is in sight now.

    I have been known to do both, I have a 13' ramp trailer. The one Cardinal Rule for loading is to back onto the ramp! If you are going forward and have a momentary loss of traction you can end up upside down. Also, if you are suing portable ramps be sure they are secured to the truck/trailer, if the mower deck hooks on a ramp it will get pushed off the tailgate and you will be on your side in a split second.

    I use a 14' landscape.

    My rule of thumb is opposite, drive them on forward, especially if the hoods are hinged in the front. If not properly secured, a tractor that is backed onto a trailer or truck, can and will lose their hoods due to the wind drag blowing them up and off. I've seen it happen, and in fact, I was behind a trailer that had that happen to. If you do backed them on, secure the hood with a bungie cord or strap (just don't tightened them too tight to damage the hood). If you do have a problem with them rearing up if driving them forward onto a trailer or truck, don't drive them on, but walk them on. Put them in the lowest gear, throttle down, and just walk them on. Much safer.

    Nice sunny afternoon, so I decided to line up two of my tractors for a couple pictures. Featuring my 857 that mows the yard every week, and the recently restored 1276 sporting freshly painted rims and some new rubber. Carlisle SAWTOOTH 4.80-8 in the front, and Kenda K501 23x8.50-12 Super Turf in the rear. Enjoy.

    Jim, The width of my 6 x 12 trailer is 96" outside of fender to fender. The maximum width of my Tacoma pickup is 84", outside rear-view mirror to mirror. I don't feel like I'm going to take out any cars, but there have been some mailboxes on the right side of the road that may have felt a bit like jumping back as I passed by.

    The lighting makes the paint look pink.

    Interesting info Bob. I was working on a 10 Hp K241 on a 1075 (has a S/G), the timing hole is on the rear side of the shroud. On My 310-8 it is on the front. Apparently when they started putting ring gears on for electric starters they moved the timing marks and the sight hole. Having them up front near the points makes life a lot easier...

    Just purchased my first Wheel Horse yesterday. I'd like to restore it to its original glory. I'm sure there is plenty of parts information out there. Any help you guys could provide would be great. The I have says C-120 on the side but the previous owner says it's a c-100. It does not have a data tag anywhere that I can find. Is there any distinguishing features I should look for to help determining exactly what year/model it is.

    18' car hauler when I am running around local or a 28' "toyhauler" when we are making a vacation out of it!

    This flywheel is typical of a K-series with Bendix-type starter. Since @Fin_ is working on a K301AS, this should help him locate the marks if they are still there.

    Those ags are the original and correct for your tractor along with the fronts. Your D tractor is a 1979 and the three point, pto, and disc brakes where options for that year. The hour meter and dash light are options also. In 1974 when they introduced the new "D" series and you ordered a 200 you got all the items i mentioned standard.

    Since there was a lot of talk about the timing marks, here is how to find the approximate location if your flywheel is rusted. This is where the marks are located, and what they are supposed to look like. This is a K301 flywheel. So, with the cover off, looking from the front, remove the nut and locate the keyway. Place it at the top (12 o'clock). Your TDC (T) mark will be at 9 o'clock with the (S) mark 5-1/2 to 6 teeth toward the top.

    I He has a C100 the regulators on them were the old large finned style mounted on the hoodstand not cooled by the engine.

    Not a bad price , but too bad the 3pt hitch has been robbed off of it - that is common , though . Those ags aren't very aggressive at all and generally won't tear up the turf any . I'm going to do a detailed writeup about rebuilding the Ross steering boxes , as well as where to source the parts and some upgrades while it's being done as well . Keep a close eye on your engine to hydraulic pump coupler - they can be a real problem on the D's and can cripple the machine in short order leaving you stranded . I'll be working on that coupler on mine shortly , waiting on parts for the steering box first . Sarge

    Judging solely from the amount of rust in that pic on the flywheel, your timing marks are long gone. The timing was never the problem as it ran before you parked it. First I would have checked for spark. If I didn't have it, checked for 12 volts on the coil with the key on. If present, I would have filed and set points , and recheck for spark at the plug. More than likely there was a coating on the points, or a fuel problem. The timing doesn't get off sitting.

    Bertie Many use landscape type trailers because ease of use. I had a nice enclosed trailer for use and storage but these can be a bit pricey. Some just use ramps on there trucks. It is up to you and what you can afford.

    Fred, the trans will bolt in and are the same in all most every way except the axles on the 310 are 1" and the 416 are 1 1/8" and unless you are using it in a tractor pull or puling tree stumps with chains on you will probably never hurt the 1" rear axles , eric j

    Not all! Seems like a few have gone to @dells68 @TravelinJavelin and @T-Mo have snagged some nice ones lately. I am about to go from an acquisition mode to a get off your keister and start restoring mode shortly. I have enough projects to keep me going for a few years.

    Ok, here are some pics after having the tires mounted, I think it is a pretty good option to match the original color. Nice thing is that the paint is easy to spray, dries fast compared to Rustoleum, and tire mounting did not damage the finish at all. Only $3.49 a can at your local ACE Hardware.

    This place is absolutely fantastic, and I love reading shared stories like this. You look real good in that shirt Jim.

    Ed, Give me a little time to get out to the shop. I may have some that were left over from the 416-H rebuild. If I have extras, I'll send them to you, otherwise I will try to find the dimensions and where I got them. I do remember it was a marine supply company but I don't remember the name. Have to do some research... Okay, here you go. That didn't take long. Inside diameter is 3/8". Is this what you need? Available from the link below. I think they are packaged 10 to a bag. PM me and I can send you a couple. Bob http://shop.mariner-sails.com/Nyliner-3-8-Inch-Id-Rudder-Pin-HC-8061011.htm

    Nice looking D and a good price for what you have. Probably a good thing I didn't run into your deal as my stable is a bit cramped these days. If we were closer I would swap you some turfs for your ags.
