Looking for advice

Recommended Posts

Colorad

Hi all,

I am new here and am new to the wheel horse tractors. I bought a property and a D-240 came with it. Can anyone give me an idea of the year range it could be ? It does have a Koehler motor. It runs really good, I was doing a little plowing with it and it blew a shaft seal off the hydro transmission pump ?

Any links to literature for removing the pump or suggestions from anyone here that knows more about these, who can point me in the right direction?

much appreciated 

thanks 

I have taken it partially apartBD0C2757-492C-4F45-8FD8-004C9858A563.jpeg.e58d2fe14238815545419581d78b8453.jpeg

I assume that someone has made a custom decal that indicates "D-240" Automatic, as this may have started out as a D-200 made from 1974-1981.  Parts are getting hard to find but not impossible.  May want to place a "Wanted" ad in the classified section or check out the -bay. The difference between removal of the pump and the impossible, is that, the impossible is just a bit harder.  One other note worth a mention is some owners use motor oil while others use tranny fluid.  It should be refilled with the same as opposed to mixing them.  The seal on the 1976 model is part #7877 not certain if this the same for other years.

This manual will come in handy. A couple of other members have a lot of "D" Sundstrand information, @daveoman1966; @pfrederi may chime in.

Hah! D man - unfortunately, is correct on maintenance of these "Big D's" . Hate to throw that at you this early with your new tractor, but, you would have found it out anyway when you start wrenching on it.  And I think he is right on the '240' designation, its probably a '200' . The 200 had a larger gas tank than the other D's and it looks like yours has the large one.

 

Anyway, back to your seal -while it is a pain to get into there it certainly CAN be done. (I've done it 6 times) Along with the manual recommended, there are several posts describing the process. Before you get too deep into it do some reading up on to get familiar with the components.

While you are in there you can do a check on all the other components. If you have trouble with that seal # get the number off the seal and see if its  different, also try to get it out as undamaged as you can and take it with you to your local dealer for a match up.

 

The 'Big D' family of tractors have sorta a 'love/hate relation here on the forum --- Obviously I'm in the 'love' group' They are a brute in the garden tractor family!

 

OH, and welcome aboard, feel free to ask questions, somebody here will no doubt have an answer!

Just a guess but I will bet the Engine is a K-662 24hp.  They are a high quality industrial grade engine but parts will be a challenge.

  The Sunstrand manual linked details how to remove the engine to access the pump. You can dig out the seal with out removing the pump.  I drill a small hole and use a sheet metal screw sometimes.    I use SKF 7475 as it is a double lip seal.  One to keep dirt out the other oil in.  note if your input shaft is grooved you can use a speedi sleeve and install it with out removing the pump from the tractor. A truly unpleasant task.

Thanks so much pfrederi,

the seal that blew is the side shaft (drivers side) the one that the linkage connects to on the passenger side. I imagine I can use your same process for any of the shaft seals?

Do you happened to know where I would find the number of the engine? All I can find is where it says Kholer USA.

O.K. that is a different seal than the part # I quoted.  The side shaft seals are part# 103461 for the 1976 model.  I'll check if I have any.

      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.

      On my D200, when I turn the steering wheel all the way to the left, it has a tight turn radius, but when I turn it all the way to the right, the turn radius is significantly wider.
       
      The tie rods appear to be adjusted evenly.
       
      Anyone have a similar problem and what was done to fix it?  The steering does have quite a bit of play, at least 1/4 to 1/2 turn of the wheel.

      What brand of gauge and/or setup are people using to test the pressure in their hydrostatic transmissions?
       
      The wheel horse hydrostatic manual says to use a 0-1000 psi gauge. The gauge in the picture in the manual(page 25 in Sunstrand Hydro (part 1).pdf) only goes to 600psi - which is probably fine as long as it's not used to test the cylinders.
       
      I found several test gauges, but most are 0-3000 or more.  I found a couple that were 0-1000 but the increment lines on the gauge are around 50-60, which means the gauge would move only a small amount.  The manual says the pressure should be between 75 and 150 psi. 
      Most of the reasonably priced digital gauges I saw had bad reviews.
