Hi folks, commontating at a rally in eastern England this last weekend and one of the lads came round on a D21 tractor and I did not know anything about it. Good tractor or bad tractor ? MJ

The original series 1 D-21 bull gears were 2 3/4" wide. They were that size up thru a couple of years of series 2 turbocharged models. They then went to 3 1/4" wide bull gears in the late builds of series 2 tractors and these were retro-fitted into older models if they failed. Ring and pinions were not changed. If the HP was left at 127.75 HP factory setting, I doubt there'd been many failures. Far too many were tweaked to 150 HP or more and then failures occurred pretty quickly.

A great machine. One of the most powerful tractors of its time.

I hope it has had the series 2 rear end updates,or is a series 2.The original D-21, with the turbocharged engines, with the original rear ends only lasted about 1,100 hours, the bull gears, the ring and pinion,and the bearings were all changed.But they had a lot of power too!

If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
