Barn find 1975 D180. 608 original hours. Tractor and 48” belly mower look to be still in their original paint. Rear 60” finish mower looks like it has had one coat of new paint added at some point. Open to trades. Please email me with any questions or for additional photos. 35 miles north of Pittsbugh.
1967 Wheel Horse 1277 - Kohler K301S, gas engine, belt driven, hydrostatic. I had it running recently but then attempted some electrical work. I also cleaned it up by sanding some rust, dirt and grime off body and engine. Some new parts were added like a new choke cable, ignition switch, head lights, spark plug, battery and battery cables. I have new seat and some other parts that I will never use if sold. The implements include a tiller, snow thrower, mower deck. I've never attached these items. I have some belts and pulleys that came with it when I inherited it. It's easily accessible for removal and showing.
Grandpa wouldn't line up in right way. Stubborn. Nice day today, got some of my herd out. 315-8 w/42" deck to mow. D200 to disc w/tandem disc. 520H w/36" tiller. And RJ59 with 36" Parker Sweeper. These horses done me well today.
I repowered my D200 last winter. I got the for/rev handle on wrong. It’ll just drift and has no resistance if you’re operating it. I would like to put a fiber washer in the linkage somewhere. Any ideas. These are just some pics of the repower.
Guess since I broke the hub and found that bad axle keyway I’m going to pull the rear and rebuild it
might as well, cause I need to replace the axle. This way I get a good look inside and inspect everything.
Also change the bull gear bolts to mark 8, seals, bearings, whatever it needs.
1: looks like I’ll need to make a new gasket
2: Axle seals
3: Bull gear bolts and nuts 5/16 mark 8
5: and Anything else as I inspect
6: Not sure what torque specs are but I'm sure someone will know.
This way she will be tip top and painted.
I will post pics as I go not sure when I’ll start but I need her fixed.
