    2017 PIONEER POWER... ROLL CALL

    I'll be there Thursday. See you guys there! Anybody heard of or going to the Nowthen Threshing show in Nowthen MN? It's started on Friday but I will be going for the day on Saturday. I always see about 2 other Wheel Horses there but I don't think he is on the forum.
  2. The rear tires are Carlisle farm specialist. They are 7-14. The rims are from Miller tire and are identical to the original rims but 14".
  3. It is a Chinese 10hp and mine was made by Keepler and a guy had a couple pallets of them and sold them for $350 brand new so my friend and I bought two.
  4. Yes I did swap out for an 8 pinion. Also I took apart a punch of the PTO and the belt shrouds and decided I will just leave the 1/2" belt for now because it will require some trimming of some metal. I don't really want to do that so I will just see what happens. I am going to get a really nice heavy duty belt from a shop near my house. They have really good belts. The next thing I'm debating if I should do or not is the trans under a hard load with pop out of 3rd gear. I won't be plowing in 3rd gear but when going up hills I have to be careful or I will go flying down backwards if I don't have my foot on the clutch. It has happened. To fix that though I will have to pull apart the transmission that I just rebuilt last year but it does have a leak in the main seal so I may be doing that soon.
  5. There is plenty of room for a wider belt and pulley. The belt shroud sits out pretty far. So I'm thinking of buying the two pulleys I need then cutting and welding them how I need them. Just have a little more measuring to do before I order the pulleys.
  6. Working on building the 953 Diesel into a beastly plow tractor. I just made a few brackets for some weights in the front and rear. I also picked up a Wheel Horse 12" plow. It was in excellent condition and I thought a great price for a 12". Now I'm looking into converting to a 5/8" belt because pulling a 10" with no weight it was eating up the stock 1/2" belt. Anybody that wants to give me any tips on the belt conversion or anything I should add let me know.

    Wheel Horse D-250 find

    I was driving down the road when a Wheel Horse D-250 caught my eye. It was sitting in a guys yard. It looks to be in okay condition but not great and the rear fenders and seat are missing. But it does have a plow and it seems mostly complete. What do you guys think I should pay for it? And what do you guys see for parts that are missing? I have never owned a D-250 and don't know a ton about them.

    I cleaned the 18hp up really nice and put it on Craigslist.

    I'm sure it is the first. I haven't seen a lot of square hoods with vtwins.

    Yes there are weights under there. I welded a tube between the two pieces of metal under the seat and then welded a nut in the end of each side of the tube so I could bolt the weights on. There are six 30lb weights and then a bunch of old wheel weights in the middle.

    The exhaust clears by at least 6" but I did not think about that when I built it.
