D160 with external park brake

Recommended Posts

This D160 that I picked up last weekend has a feature on it that I have not come across before. It has an external brake similar to the style that a "C" series manual transmission uses. I haven't seen that on a "D" before. All of the D's I have seen use the internal brake paw. Also has an electric cooling fan pointing at the hydro manifold. How rare is that. My other D160 and my D200 do not have either of these features. Any thoughts????

I have two D-200s. The first is a 1977 model and that has the internal pawl brake, the latest addition is a 1978 model and that has an external band brake mounted on the hydro motor unit. Was it a change perhaps as the pawl brakes kept getting broken off?

I have a 77 with the internal brake and a 79 with the external band - both D-200's and came from the same dealer.

'78 seems to be the year of change. I haven't had the time to take a good look over my 'new' D-200 in detail but there are a number of differences with the other from '77.

 

Don't know if it applies to the D-160 but as well as the band brake, the decals changed to the style of the C-121 introduced the same year and the headlamp bezel decal is black. An hours meter appears to have become an optional extra, even on a D-200; the plastic dash has an easy to cut away blank where it could be added. The rear wheel rims changed from the traditional style (which could be fitted either way round to produce wide or narrow track) to a much wider rim which only fits one way round and is made (I guess) in two halves welded together.

 

I'll take a look at the steering out of interest - but what am I looking for?

the steering pivot arm looks much stronger on my 80 160 than it did on my 74 180

      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.

      Been wanting to figure out a better way to move dead tractors around - some, just isn't cooperative at being towed - the AC 916H is a great example around here. Since the rear axle is a hydro, it does not disengage fully for some reason and the tires are really shot badly. The 16Auto dug some big holes the last time I tried to move it around, so the idea here is to use the D's 3pt lift and it's size/weight advantage to move other dead tractors. I also wanted a toolbar that could have adapters added for various tasks - such as cultivators, tines, rear blade, ect. I've wanted to build a wrecker for years, just never had the time to do it - this year, I decided I've had enough of my aching back and legs - this needs to get done before I end up in the hospital. Always seems there is no help available when I need it, so now is the time - here is where I'm at as of now...
       

       

       

       

       
      All built from 1/4" thick iron, except the hub mounting plate which 1/2" thick A50 steel. Trailer hub/stub shaft is a 1750lb rated unit. In hindsight, if I ever did it again I'd use a heavier DOM tubing and just turn it to accept bearing races, make the shaft on the lathe and be done with it. Not to mention, I could control the thickness of the assembly a lot better. There are "rear tire carrier builder" parts available out there to do just that with pre-built tubing, the correct bearings and shaft - you just weld it into the square tubing of choice. Still a lot to do - need to make a set of centering springs, locking pins (for toolbar use), tire carrier arms w/tie-down rings, rear blade adapters, ect....
       
      Just thought I'd share a bit - need to some lift testing today, hopefully.

      Looking to get out of the WH business so looking to unload everything as one lot.  Have D160 w/ Onan 16 twin original.  Use it to mow last year so it will run, have not started it this year.  Burns oil but good machine otherwise. Has 48 inch belly mower and snow blower. Other machine is 18 Auto with bar tires, 3 pt hitch and rear PTO, 48 inch Rear finish mower and snow blower.  Current state is that it has motor and hydro pump out because the O rings for hydro pump were leaking so while making that repair I planned to change the Pump shaft out.  Motor and drive are good and I have mowed with this in the past.  Spare parts I have include Most of another Machine that was stripped down so there are spare tires rims, rear end, steering components, I also have 2 o 3 spare hydro pumps, extra hydro line sets (hoses and hard lines), Another 16 horse ONAN that blew a rod currently torn down (may be salvageable, never followed up with it).  I am getting several Allis Chalmers garden tractors passed down to me and since I barely have time for my WH I figure its best to pass these on to another collector and make room for the new fleet coming.  Please reach out to me Via Email and we can exchange contact information and I could send pictures when I make time to take some this week.  Thank you.

      I’m not sure I’m in the right place for this post, but I’ve got a leaky hydro cylinder on my D180. It’s the primary one that lifts the deck, snowblower, etc. I could take a chance on finding one on ebay, but I was wondering if there’s an alternative besides used.
