Does it have steering brakes.
It almost looks like it says "parking" above that "2 lever" arrangement.


Yes Will, it has steering brakes and I think the second lever is to release the Parking brake handle.

Ok, so that hole in the dash, would be missing an indicator light then, for parking brakes?

Yes, that's the parking brake indicator light.

More photos to help identify the year of this tractor, they were built from 1976 to 1981. When I bought it, I couldn't find the tractor ID tag. I was hoping to find it under the front support for the loader upright arm, but all I found was a series of numbers stamped into the frame rail. I only have 1 Front Remote Hydraulic line on the left side mounted on the side of the radiator support, not coming out under the grill in the front of the tractor. Also mine has the foot operated PTO control mounted on the left foot rest running board and had the push-on/pull-off ignition switch and a momentary push starter button. With all I have seen on this D-250, I believe it's a first year, 1976.

Got some time today to mess with the D-250 and it's going to need another engine. I tried to rotate it over and she's stuck hard. So I pulled the oil pan plug and about 2 quarts of water ran out it, then some oil. I am guessing that whoever had it before the guy I got it from had only used water in the engine and it froze enough to bust the engine. I will get ready to pull the engine out of it and find a Diesel to drop in it.

 Brian, I'm sorry to hear about the engine, but it will be a far better machine with a diesel. A tractor in that size range should of had a 20-30hp diesel anyway. I'll keep my eye out for one around here, as we're not that far apart. :thumbs:

I hate to hear its got a busted engine, but I think you will have a better tractor with a diesel or even another gas engine.

Thanks Matt, I believe it needs a big HP engine also. A 20 to 30 HP Kubota or Yammar would do the trick.

It will run very well after I make a run up to Tulsa to pick up your big diesel mower to get that engine for this one.

 I know this probably isn't exactly what your looking for Brian, but there's just something about the idea of putting a Kubota 3cyl turbo diesel in a Wheel Horse that puts a big smile on my face!  :rocker:  :bigrofl:
