    D 200 dash light

    I used this one, but it does not look like they have anymore https://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/202029419809 also saw this - it doesn't have the bracket but the light looks the same http://www.2040-parts.com/dialco-usa-hooded-pilot-lamp-light-assembly-dash-gauge-aircraft-instrument-panel-i1438449/ I personally don't like the way the 2040-parts.com website looks. I would call or try to contact first - it looks suspicious to me. At least you know what to search for though.
  2. Thanks for the responses. $150 is the asking price. Most of the 50lb cast iron JD wheel weights around here are going for at least $150 for two.
  3. I'm not sure. He did not know and I tried googling the numbers on the weights but nothing came up. I did pick one up. They seem to be at least 50lbs or more.
  4. I have seen a couple of D series tractors with dual slots for the motion control lever but this one has the lower slot blocked and it "looks" original? Did Wheelhorse do this or did the owner do this and why was it done?
  5. They are mounted on a wheel horse D-180. They are cast iron. What brand and weight are these wheel weights? How much are they worth?

    D Series Replacement Gauges

    Thank You for the information.
  7. What brand of gauges are D series owners using for replacements? I would like a matched set for a D200(oil pressure, transmission temp, volts or amps) with lights. The ones on mine are in bad shape and don't work, except amps. I think the sending units may be bad or maybe the inside of the gauges are bad from sitting outside for so long. Thanks.

    1979 D200 filter numbers

    I know I saw this somewhere on the forum but cannot find it now. I want to replace engine and transmission oil in by 1979 D200 I thought I read I could get the filters at NAPA but did not write the numbers down What do I need to ask for at napa? Transmission Filter number: ???? Engine Oil Filter number: ????? Engine Air Filter number: ????? Thanks.
  11. The PO owner installed what I believe to be a non-standard carburetor. The dash panel shows choke when the lever is at the top of the slot and run when it is at the bottom. However, I have to do the opposite. When I start I have to have the lever at the bottom of the slot to choke the engine and then move to the top of the slot for run. What is the correct carburetor for this motor in a 18 automatic? Did the PO install incorrectly? Other than the motor runs perfectly.
  12. Thanks. Appreciate the responses.
  13. Can a Kohler 482 be replaced with a Kohler K582S, spec 36337(that's all I can read from the spec# - looks like serial# is 23055F030) in a D180 without any modifications? The K582S runs and comes with a K532QS spec 53131a as a parts engine for $800. I'm still new to this hobby - what would it approximately cost to have the existing K482 rebuilt -runs but smokes bad. At this point in my hobby, I would most likely have to take it somewhere to have the work done, unless a local fellow member would help me with the rebuild. I do want to learn! Thoughts on the $800 for two motors - provided it can replace the K482. Thanks.
  14. A previous owner modified replaced the motion control lever on my 18 auto with what appears to be a John Deere motion control lever. The 18 auto I have has the single slot for the motion control lever. Are the motion control levers for the single slots interchangeable between the different D series or do I have to find one from a 73 18 auto? Thanks.
  15. Just wanted to let everyone know I followed Glen's flattening instructions, to the letter, and the results were excellent. Wish I would've taken a before/after picture. Thanks again Glen.
