Are you talking about a row-crop cultivator for corn, beans, etc.? The front of the tractor should have two flat iron brackets mounted on the front pedestal bolts, forming a square yoke, open to the front. A two by two square tube rests in those yokes, and each side mounted unit is pinned to the end of that tube, as well as being bolted to the side frames of the tractor. The depth adjusting handles mount in the mid area of the tractor, and one lift arm cylinder needs to be disconnected from the lift arm and swung forward to connect to the front lift assembly. The remaining lift arm cylinder is left attached to the lift arms, to which the rear cultivator gang is attached. You should have rear cultivator gangs behind each rear wheel, and in the center of the tractor. As an option, you can mount additional gangs in the row areas to use as a rear mounted field cultivator. If you have a four row cultivator, the mounting is the same, but I think the front square tube is longer, and there may be an x brace in front of the radiator, and rods going out to the sides for additional support. Been many years- over 25, and I remember the D17 better- it had a different subframe, and an integral handwheel winch to assist in mounting the four row. Two row is not bad to mount, the four rows are back breakers because we didn't have much for winches back then.

thank you so much-you cleared up a lot and it is a two row cultivator: I think Ive got it figured out as to the attachments, except for the manual lifts; which cylinder is brought forward to attach-or maybe a redundant question when I get them mounted any way!

Matt- there is no manual lift with the WD cultivator- the levers are to adjust the depth of the cultivator. As to which cylinder gets swung forward, I think it's the left one, but I really don't remember after all these years, and when you get the lever assembly mounted in the middle of the tractor, you'll see which side has the mounting ear for the lift cylinder. Swing that one forward-

Matt, check this link to look at some photos of my WD45 with the cultivators before I removed them. If they look like the same type you have, post back here to let me know.

I took some close-ups of all the mounting brackets and rods before I removed them. I'll upload the photos to an album where you can view them. Now is a good time to pick my brain while I still remember where everything goes.

Scott, I appreciate all the pics; my cultivators look quite different however; the rear cultivator extends across the back wheel base and is operated by the lift arms; there are two sections fhat are the row cultivators (seperate) that attach somehow-and Im thinking either at the front or along the sides-with manual lifts on either

Oh well, since I put up the photos of the brackets and stuff you might want to look anyway. It may help give you some ideas on where everything is supposed to attach.

My front cultivator did have a manual crank besides being operated by the remote ram. The rear cultivator is operated by the lift arms but had a manual crank behind the rear axle. The rear cultivator had a toplink that had brackets mounted on the inside flange of the rear axles. The lift arms connected to arms similar to a 3pt and they ran underneath the axle and attached to the frame just forward of the axle.

Hope you get those cultivators figured out. Will you be farming with it, or is it a hobby tractor?

I think Ive got it figured out and your pics are great-It did give me some ideas!! The tractor : I bought at a farm auction 2 years ago,had it totally restored( engine rebuilt-brakes,clutch bearings,electrical, painted, etc) by our high school ag department mechanics class. It is a working tractor which has also been entered in several fairs and even pulled!

I think I have an original manual. I'll look. Might take a day or two to find it.
