That RJ looks absolutely cool !!! I'd put a good running engine in it & try to leave the rest of it as it is. Can't wait to see the rest of the haul.

Going to pick up a load of horses Thursday evening. D160, rj, suburban and c141. Will post pictures when I get them. I’m gonna try an get them all in one load so I am gonna have to use some of @pullstart loading skills. I think I can fit three in the truck and put the d160 on the trailer. Here is a little preview, that’s all you guys get for now :ph34r: unless you just happen to find ad for them :lol:EEA547AC-1198-475A-A8B5-3AE53489039E.jpeg.281ef63e8486bea3ccb25ff3b4d959ab.jpeg

Not getting them now, someone offered the guy $500 for the d160 rj and burb and I was supposed to get them all for $400. He said he would hold them for me but he didn’t keep his word. I would consider buying the three for $500 but I am not gonna give someone my money that was gonna sell them out from under me. People these days :mellow:

What a bummer.  The silver lining, is that you found out they were gone BEFORE you got there.

Yeah, I wasn’t gonna call but I figured it would be a good idea before making a two out drive. I am extremely disappointed, but I guess it is what it is.

I have been thinking about it and I might still try to work out a deal with him. As disappointed as I am and angry I still would really like to have these tractors. I will see what happens.

As much as it seems a bad move on the seller's part, after having dealt with so many flakes when selling stuff over the internet, I'm almost the same way. I've sold things in the past to people who've said "I'll be back with cash tomorrow!" and set up a time, to never hear from that person again. Unless someone leaves a deposit, if someone else shows up with cash first it's theirs. 

 

I've had stuff sold out from under me like that before and I've learned to bring a trailer and cash any time I'm going to look at something, instead of having to go back. Bringing the means to haul something is a huge bargaining-ship, since the seller will know you're serious. 

 

I'd go ahead and get the others.

If i decide I am still gonna get them I would have to get them tomorrow evening. He said there is a guy coming Saturday and if I still want them I have to get them before then.

I'll probably get flamed for this, but the only time I'll wait for someone to show is when nobody else calls. seriously, people will say they coming...

 

If I see a sweet deal, I make sure i get there immediately

 

now, if you approach this with the right attitude, you could leverage getting shafted for a better deal on the others ;)

The guy wants $500 for the rj burb and d.The highest I would feel comfortable is $500 for all 4. I don’t know the condition of any of them. They could all have seized transmissions and and blown engines for all i know. How much do you guys think the rj is worth as it sits ? The rj is what I want the most and the one I would be willing to pay the most for, as long as I know it’s worth what I would be paying for it.

Heading to the big show last year gave me a new perspective on what things will sell for.  Around here, it’s $100-150 more than asking price for non running tractors.  For more modern models, it’s $400-500 more.  I see non running Suburbans priced around $300 locally but have hopes to see a bigger pool in June with easier price tags to work with.

 

That rambling said, a tractor is worth what two people are willing to settle on.  I think there’s a chance that every tractor I bought at the show put a little cash in the seller’s pocket, but I felt like they were good deals for both parties.  After all, most of us will never get rich in this hobby alone but to me it’s worth it! :handgestures-thumbupright:

      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.

      Hello I'm looking a deck for my C-195 48' or preferably 60' located in NW Illinois.

      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.
