D15 transmission question

Posted by DaninKansas on October 14, 2013 at 06:33:06 from (

My FIL died a year ago and the family is starting to sell off a little of his equipment. He had 3 D17s Series IVs and a D15 with an add on 3 point. My son wants to buy one of his grandpa's tractors and restore/refurbish it like I did with an IH 350 a long time ago (still have that tractor).

The BIL that is now "in charge" of the farm says he can sell one of the D17s or the D15. The D17 he wants to sell he thinks has a distributor/ignition problem of some kind. It will run fine for a day or two then it will quit like you shut it off annd refuse to start. A day or two later it will start again and run fine.

The D15 runs OK but pops out of gear. He started telling me it was an easy fix that "only" required splitting the tractor (quickly moving it out of "easy" for me".

None of these tractors are in "good" condition - he ran his stuff hard and long and skimped on repairs. The last couple of years the smaller stuff (like these D17s) sat alot as he had bought newer larger equipment that he liked running better.

The only thing I would use either tractor for is putting up hay - probably running the baler and other light chores.

What do you think?
