Brian that's a nice addition to your collection. It must be one of the biggest heaviest GT's ever made. I think it would be great to get that Renault engine going. 4 cylinder, just think of the unique sound and the torque that engine would have. Sweeet!!

This may help trackdown parts. There was a cute motorhome built in the early to mid 80s that used a small Renault diesel engine. I don't remember the name. I considered buying one and found that a dealer on the net, advertised the ability to get any Renault diesel engine parts. Good Luck

Heck of a deal there Brian.

One can't even think about building that FEL for the $300.

 

Coldone clued me into the info, that the D250 was made by Gutbrod in Germany.(same

headlights as Elf).

I've seen lots of engine parts for those on German Ebay, as I searched for Elf stuff.

 

Somewhere in here, I've got a few links to Gutbrod sites and manuals, if they're

of any help to you.

Good deal on the WH and loader.

I have a D-200 with an ARK loader. My loader has is own hydraulic pump and system....seperate from the tractors system.

How about the D-250 and loader?

 

 

I don't know yet, but all the others I have seen have had their own pump running of the PTO.

Cat, Thanks, that lets me see how it should look in the day light. That is the same loader that I have, with the cross member and tall uprights. :D

Brian, is this the one in TN?  I called the morning after you told him the M.O. was in the mail.  I just knew he would call me and tell me the money never got here, so come on and get it.   What a great deal!!!!  Really jealous.  Ive been looking for a D-250 for a while, and a loader is such a bad@$$ attachment too!  Good luck with it.

Ark 550, I think the ad said for the loader model.

David, That's the one. The guy was a real pleasure to deal with and seemed like a great guy just down on his luck. I sent him a little extra for storing it for me.

Wheel Horse sold the Ark loaders with W H decals on them. They are the same one from what I can tell. :thumbs:

I am not sure if its the same engine, but the Gravely GMT9000 uses a renault engine also. If nothing else I think you have a great platform for a repower. I would think a Wisconsin V4 or a Kubota deisal would be great in itand since I am dreaming might see about 4WD for the front too.

Just talking to him for the short time I did, I thought he seemed like a nice feller.  Glad someone on here got it and will enjoy it!

I've been E-mailing and finally talking to him for 2 weeks now. He doesn't E-mail so everything had to go thru his wife who has been pretty sick.

I've got a couple diesels sitting around waiting for a good home. It will be interesting to see what it needs. I won't get to pick it up until the next trip to MIL & FIL's place in N.C. this spring. I may not be able to wait that long.
