D250 restoration

Recommended Posts

Solze1267

Well a little late to post this (actually months late but hey life happens) but I purchased this D250 which runs rough and is stuck in low range but still moves. Over the next few months myself along with my father are going to tear this beast down and completely rebuild this back to its former glory. I also have the original mower deck to go along with it. If anyone has any incite on these tractors feel free to comment. I will post pictures along the way.

Hey Don,

Brian from Mass. You grabbed a headlight and cables from me.

I'm guessing that's you.

I'll be following this thread also.

Good luck, Give me a holler if you need anything.

Ok so a little update on the restoration. Due to overtime at work and some unforeseen family emergencies I haven’t been able to do much on the tractor. BUT I was able to finally meet up with @bmiller0457 and snag this snow blower and parts tractor off of him. I am also working with my paint supplier on a color match for the tractor since under the seat pans on both tractors is not faded out at all. I will post a formula for it once we have it. Progress will be slow but continued until overtime slows down at work then watch out!

Got my decals in today from Redoyourhorse and they look great. Now to get to the point of being ready to put them on.3370E29C-74DF-4422-B605-D7CC646EA606.png.48bb9de83bf81010e4326657566b78f2.png

Finally the D250 is back in the shop to get worked on and is joined by it's little brother rj58 who goes perfectly up on the work bench... Slow and steady wins the race

      Hi All, It's time for me to sell the D-250 I've had for the last 8 years.  It’s useable as is, or would be a great project bundle for further restoration.
       
      I am selling a large package: the running tractor, a refurbished snowblower (48”), parts snowblower, mower deck (60”), tiller (40”), front plow blade (60”), Cat 0 3-Point Hitch with adjustable top link, WH 3-Point tool bar, wheel weights and tire chains.  Also included is an extensive part collection, nearly a second tractor worth.  I will include the original manuals, an original 1976 sales brochure, and repair manuals for the tractor and the engine.  I made electronic copes of all of the above, and stored the paper copies to prevent further wear. This is one of the most complete D-250 tractor/attachment bundles I’ve seen.
       
      Some highlights from the available parts: Frame rails, extra engine, water pump, extra transaxle, extra gears, including worm gears (stored in oil bath), Front wheel set, carburetor, carb rebuild kit, rebuildable original radiator, extra radiator overflow bottle, rebuilt alternator, new voltage regulator (I was planning to change over to an alternator setup from the generator), new in package Renault engine seals, new PTO seals, ignition maintenance parts.  There are also many panels, frame pieces, cables, levers, tubes (lines) and hardware in the collection.
       
      The tractor engine runs smooth.  There are around 1050 original hours on it; It’s a 1976 edition.  Everything works, except the dash lights and the rear lights (disconnected b/c of fender).  I just haven't sorted out the wiring, but it is all there.  Headlights are good and working, as are all of the gears and levers.  The four tires are nearly new Carlisle Multi Trac, with nubs still on them.  The rear tires have been filled (ballasted) with Rim Guard for extra traction.  The hydraulic pump, front PTO clutch and brakes operate but could use a tune up.  I’ve used it for mowing and snowblowing on hills, driveway and around my land. I don’t have an original WH seat.  The snowblower was rebuilt a few years back, and assembled with all new hardware and bearings.  The mower deck gearbox was professionally serviced recently, and has a new set of blades with only a half dozen mows.  The rear fender needs a repair, but all pieces are available.  The plow and tiller are due for restoration.  The Points, Condenser and rotor have all been replaced and tuned in.  The battery is good.  I've rebuilt the carb, replaced the fuel pump and changed out the plugs within the last 30 hours.  The replacement radiator is from a Kawasaki engine; it was installed with new hoses. There are also new custom hydraulic hoses and a new hydraulic lift cylinder.
       
      Here's a video of me mowing, this past summer.
       
      Transporting this haul in one trip will require a pickup truck and a large trailer.

      I bought a 3 point hitch from someone on Face book but the 3 point hitch lift assembly bearings were not included.
      The are NLA. 
       
      Does any know a supplier for these or have two they are willing to sell? 
      I looked at McMaster and could not find one with the sizes needed.
       
      The part# is 8340 in the 3 point hitch diagram below. 
       
      Thank You.

      What direction does the front PTO Pulley turn on a wheel horse D180 with a Kohler K482 as you face the front of the tractor?
       
      I want to get a hydraulic pump for a Johnson 10 loader I will be mounting to tractor and want to make sure I get a pump that rotates the correct direction.

      I was looking for Ross steering parts and "found" the gardentractorpullingtips.com/steering.htm website.
      I have not ordered anything, only sent an email with questions.
       
      Today I noticed the post in the Red Square Links for "not recommended suppliers".
      I am glad I did not send any money.
       
      I am rebuilding a Ross Steering box on a Wheel Horse D180.
       
      The Ross Steering box has the code below stamped on the column.
      SCA 10200
       
      Where can I get these items?
      -          Complete Lower Steering Box Bearing and Cup/Race Kit - Full Set. Includes two plastic bearing cages/ball spacers.
      -          9/16" Diameter Cam Follower (Steering Pin). 
      -          Flanged Sealed Ball Bearing to replace the insert at the top of the column.  Looks like it's a little bigger than 1 3/8" OD with a 3/4" ID 
      -          “Easy Steer" Upgrade Kit. For models with 3/4" diameter pitman arm stud.
       
      I have seen some of these parts on the auction site but was hoping for someplace I could order everything from.
       
      Thank You.
