What does a D-250 use for a transmission?

 

Nice find, btw.

 

Cat, it has a 4 + R with a HI/LOW Manual Trans. Shaft driven and I am guessing a automotive style clutch, thru I haven't checked on that yet.

They ARE a lot diff than the other smaller D's.  No rear tin?  Did you ask if they took it off and might have yet?  Not sure how you would find that, might be making some for this. That rear frame sticking out would have to come off if mine, weights or not!  Wonder if something else was mounted on those beams?

That sure looks like a beast Brian. Congrats.

I see on the column, you have diff lock, on the right, Pto beside that, tranny hi/lo

to the left of the shifter. But, what is that 2 lever arrangement beside that?

The rear end on that is most likely not the typical GT rear end we see in North America. It's probably something heavier. That Renault 4 cylinder engine was probably capable of some serious low RPM torque. That's a nice find Brian and it would make a great restoration as the diesel variant.

My experience with the Renaults goes clear back to the Renault Dauphines imported during the late 50"s and early 60's I was not impressed with them at all;.

That said those engines were uses in more small equipment than one would think and I think they proved out to be pretty good engines.

My father-in-law had a Case 1830 skidloader with the Renault engine and I ran it a lot. Always started good reguardless of temperatures, and was a smooth running engine that did everything you could ask of it. If one can find parts it would not scare me at all.

What I wondered is if the later imported Le Car used the same engine without the gouverner and could easily be swapped?

gl, The rear seat pan was discarded at some point when the owner built the frame on the back. It's just bolted on and used to have a small metal barrel on it to hold ballast, but it rotted away. I will find a used fender pan for it at some point.

 

That sure looks like a beast Brian. Congrats.

Will, I will look at it closer today as I move it around on the trailer to get the rest of our stuff back on the trailer to go home tomorrow. I want to find the ID tag, if it's still on it also.

Bobby, I had the same loader on my 1970 GT14 and it was a great loader tractor. If you had the tiller on the back it made it steer pretty easy, without the weight it was a real bear to steer.

Does it have steering brakes.

It almost looks like it says "parking" above that "2 lever" arrangement.
