    Some sad news indeed... always loved to hear the story of how your wife volunteered to drove it 25 miles... on treacherous, ice covered roads, through a blizzard, with no coat...just to get it home. Keep the faith brother, you'll get it going again.

    Let us know what you find Fred. I looked at it on eBay and honestly, I'm afraid it is pretty rough with just a newer coat of paint. I saw several go to $500 to $750ish at the Charlottesville auction and some of them looked a lot better. Maybe I'm wrong, hope I am!

    If it's original it's a Kohler. But a non-running D-180 for close to 2K!!!! Ouch! I don't even need to see pics to know that one is overpriced. Having no way to verify that the hydro tranny is good is almost a deal killer. In my opinion anyway 🤔

    Surprisingly most of my customers have never been to the forum. Most of my phone up customers do not use the internet. A family member or friend gave them my info. Standard questions are Where can I get parts? or What color to paint. Or What year is my tractor. I would say 50% of my customers have their Father or Grandfathers old Wheel Horse and are trying to refurbish or restore it for sentimental reasons so I always tell them to go to wheelhorseforum.com they will help you save your horse.

    You couldn't ask for better weather and the variety of equipment was outstanding. Member @turnnleft was there with his grandson and a lot of outstanding RJs. This poor horse has been abused! Here are a few more photos of the show. Don't know what this is but it was Not For Sale, owner had picked it up a few weeks ago and hoped to find out more information fro people at the show. Here is a Standard Twin walk behind tractor that has been converted to a rider. Very interesting! I have one in my barn and have plans to do something similar with it. Massey was the feature tractor this year. This gentleman had a great Deere toy collection

    Carlos, Yes the fuel pumps can be a headache. I install an electric one right away on anything I buy, then no worries about getting fuel. These two I show here are the types I use and are readily available here in the states through ebay - usually under $25

    Rebuild the old pump or use an electric low pressure Facet . http://www.then-now-auto.com/product-category/fuel-pump-kits/kohler-fuel-pump-kits/ Sarge

    Keep the faith, I grew up on a B wide front end that my grandfather bought new and C narrow front that my uncle bought used then dad got it but sadly had to sell it to make room for the Kioti, Jeff.

    Nearly everything on a D is unique other than the pump and rear hydraulic motor - it is the same as the C-series but it is configured in a divorced setup with a set of steel lines and flat steel manifolds that run between the pump and motor , the pump is driven directly off the engine . They are not fun to work on - it is highly cramped and the entire tractor is built around that pump . Now , that said - the engine is fairly easy to pull and it's a fairly bulletproof K-482 Kohler twin opposed with an oil pump - it is a very stout engine for it's rating (highly underrated) . I paid $75 for mine in non-running condition - but a lot of stuff had issues and was worn badly - especially the front axle . Early models up to ''75 had used 3/4" spindles on the wheels/steering and wore out easily . The 56" blade that came with it was mangled badly - but I'm a welder and a mechanic so everything got repaired/replaced . Tires are much bigger on this model and not cheap , either - there's a lot to consider and for what they are asking that thing better be like new with few issues for that price , which I doubt . The pump and the coupling between it and the flywheel side of the engine is highly prone to stripping the splined teeth - that alone cost me several hundred dollars to upgrade it to a used/good pump , have a key way cut in it's shaft and modify the cast coupling for a key , but it should not fail again . I rebuilt the Ross steering box for about $60 - easy enough to do as long as the worm gear isn't damaged or just worn out , which can happen . I'm knocking on nearly $1,000 into it now and haven't touched any paint or decals - that's just in hard parts and machine work . SO , buyer beware... I will say this , when the run they are an animal but they still have some limitations - mostly being that pump setup and the rear axle and especially the pre-'75 differential issues . Using the C-series rear hydro unit and longer axles to make it work made them weaker than a C due to the added stress when they made it wider - it should have been a heavier unit all-around .

    Another one down the road. I picked this one up last week and had buyer's remorse. Not because of the machine just the fact I have too many. This one sold at a push which I am fine with. Just wanted to see it go to a better home.

    My father in law paid $1,000 for a non-running 18 Auto (what became the D-180 the following model year). He put some time into it before "gifting" it to me. I've thrown $350 into it to get it running. Still dealing with some adjustments, but it starts and runs just fine. That said, I personally would not pay over $800 for a non-running model if NEEDING something to cut grass and use. If you are a collector, looking for a project, or a full resto... then I could see paying more.

    Yep, the motor is a Kohler twin 18hp and if in good condition is a BEAR!! But, nonrunning and in the D series for 1800 .... uh-uh. Parts for the engine are scarce and if the hyd drive has probs then youve got a a monster headache. The steering can also be a prob - tho at least it can be fixed. Mind you, the D is a hellava tractor in decent running condition, but even then it would need to be especially nice to get in that price range.

    Got tires tired of looking at the ugly cracked plastic fenders, so borrowed the set off my C141 for a while...its going to be a LONG time before the 141 is up and running...figurevi will be able to find another set to go on the 125 sometime in the future. Really like the looks of the metal pan a lot better.

    I don't know what model deck you have. It's my understanding that the 37" decks came with two different belts according to the models. Some had double "V" belts and some had standard "V" belts with a flat back. That could be the reason there are two idlers listed. As with all other Wheel Horse equipment model number might not tell what you have with idlers and belts being changed over the last 29 years.

    Story is guy I got it from bought it New in 1966 and he said the dealer painted it this way to sell it faster... I got new decals with it and it will be restored to original. Sat in his barn for 10+ years, he put battery charger on it and it fired right up and it doesn't smoke a lick. When these techys run good they really run good! First pic is from before I washed it
