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.
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.
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.
