That's got to be pretty rare. They only made about 6500 diesels don't think that many trike front ends. Make sure to keep it nice and show it a lot. That's something to be proud of you have.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

You can bolt the single front on in an hour or so. You can see that that one had a wide front on it at one time by the paint missing on the four tapped holes on the front of the pedestal. Mine, before and after....

Warm them up before working them, and cool them down before shutting them off. If the previous owner followed these rules you should be good to go.

I've had a couple of the 230 Buda engines in a WD45D and a Cockshutt 40 diesel,really a pretty good engine I'd say same basic engine as the D17 diesel and the D19D.Not a good starting engine in cold weather but most indirect injection engines don't start well in cold weather.

Dad bought a diesel back in 74. The head, injectors, and pump have never been off since dad bought it. I have it now.

Lot of injector and head issues. Big $$$ to fix. Others can chime in with details.

Well that's more of a tractor to put in moth balls, and brag that u got one, but as far as a hobby farm tractor, you would be off with a gas 45,or similar tractor, Just my opinion .

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]
