You can do as you please, but I would get the 200 up and running. Most of the sheet metal will work on either one. One thing I will have to check is whether the 200 came with an Electric PTO Clutch or not. I don't believe it did.

 

Great looking start for a very nice JD.. Well done !!

You need a 200 series fsm and start with the 200. Take your time.

My desire is to rebuild the 200.

 

By "where to start", I meant - do I start on the tractor or the motor?

Figure the motor should be first - but where to start with that?  The "oops" in the subject is because it's in more pieces than I knew was possible.

 

Thinking I should start with a parts break-down and start pulling apart the baskets and get a list of missing pieces.  I have parts from  2 or 3 motors and a lot of tractor parts in the baskets. May be difficult to separate bolts and parts for the motor from the body.

 

 

Looking for advice from folks that have done this before.

I'm thinking about parting out the 416:

I want to keep the motor and tires.

 

The shuttle lever and pulleys move freely, the transmission shifts smoothly and the BGB appears to be tight.  Wonder how much that's worth as parts?

I also picked up a basket case (a 212).All the parts where there but the Kohler carb had some issues with it. It's a unit that has used parts available, but sometimes hard to track down. Good luck it will be a fun project.

You need a 200 series fsm and start with the 200. Take your time.

Hi,

 

I'm taking my time - I haven't done anything with it yet, and the tractors are now buried in snow. ;)

(I wanted to finish with splitting and stacking next year's firewood first.)

 

I checked the manuals section and couldn't find anything on the 200 series.

Anyone have a 200 series FSM I can borrow?

(By the way, what is an FSM?  Hopefully not a measuring device. :D )

 

Thanks.
