A local D17 with the Buda diesel is for sale & the owner claims only 234 were built. I'm not a AC guy, but that doesn't seem right to me. Anybody have that info handy.....I would appreciate it. Thanks for your time.

I looked on Tractor Data and found 84,914 total D17's made.....of that 12,284 were diesels. That seems more in line with what I suspected. Thanks for the help.

Figure I see, in Swinford's book, was 350 tractors with the 230, from 181341. Wording is a little subjective, could be taken to mean a couple different things. Those 350, mentioned in the book, were made in 1953. But from my experience, AC would often run the line setup, till they ran out of parts, for a particular line, then start up again, with the 262.

Whoops, reread post! I was commenting on WD-45 diesel, not D-17, let me make that clear. I don't believe there were any 230 Budas, in a D-17, unless somebody has done some tinkerin!

Except the D17 itself did not exist until 1957. The ones with the 230 Diesel were WD45's. I do not think they were available with the Diesel until later than 1953, maybe late 1954 or early 1955, about the same time Power steering became available.

No, according to Swinfords book, all 350 230 Budas went into WD-45"s made in 1953. I think that there might be a few WD-45"s, with the 262, don"t know if they are original, or transplants, from a later D-17! Problem is, is that some dealers would hold onto inventory, that didn"t sell! we have a 1957 D-14, that was sold as new, in 1963, I believe!

All D17 Diesels had Allis Chalmers D262 engines in them. Buda engines ceased being Budas when A-C bought Buda in the early '50s. Yes, the basic engine design descended from the earlier Buda design, but did not carry the Buda name.
There were several thousand diesels made.
Now if that engine had a Turbo engine on it from the factory, it would be one of a few D17 cotton picker tractors that had larger engines in them, and were very low in quantity produced.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
