 can't wait to try cutting grass with the 195. i cut about 4 acres today with my john deere 400 which is  comparable  in size and horsepower. still want to change all the fluids first and do a tune-up before i take a chance on hurting something.

 

i always think about a diesel repower but i don't have the right motor to do it. i have a 16 hp Kubota 3 cylinder diesel looking to be installed in something but i don't think it would pull a 60 inch deck under the 195.

 i didn't know that all 195's had the rockshaft installed, that should make it pretty easy to fab a 3 point hitch. what rear tires were more common on 195's, 29x12.50-15 or 26x12-12? the runner has the 15's and the parts tractor has 12 inch wheels.

 

thanks

keith

I would love to get a 195. According to photos and specs on tractordata.com they are a beast!

I haven't really looked into it yet.
But, I believe you can just buy the three point links and arms for it.
You just need the right lengths.
The only tires they came with were the 15" x 29"
Someone substituted the 12" on there.

You are a lucky man to have found 2 of them...... I wish I could find one that they didn't want my arm and leg for it

sad but everything in NY is made of gold, somebody forgot to tell my employer because they have seen fit to not give us a pay raise in 3 years, last one I found looked pretty nice but I had to pass it up, a little to rich for my blood

Standard tire size: front  20x8.0x10

                              rear   29x12.0x15

 

Optional tire size   front  18x8.5x8

                              rear   26x12.0x12

 

I could measure the the three point arms and links for you.

 didn't get much done today to either tractor. sanded and painted the inside of the front rims for the parts tractor. on the runner i found an exhaust manifold to replace the cracked one and picked up new gaskets.

The pics showed 3 very nice GTs and 2 very nice trailers but, what is under the cover in front of the garage? Looks like maybe a 70ish GM medium size. Good Luck, Rick

 good eye on the car, 1969 Chevelle, still needs a lot of work. trailer with both 195's was borrowed for the trip. made the trip to Wisconsin (350 miles one way) to get the two tractors and pulled it with my 1994 Jeep Wrangler 4 cylinder 5 speed. the Jeep was a little overloaded.

 still trying to get a few more things broke free on the parts tractor. so far both hyd. spools, hydro foot pedal, hi-lo selector are now moving. brake pedal, steering valve, engine and throttle are still stuck. going to mount the front tires tonight if it doesn't rain.

 

thanks to everybody reading this post, it keeps me motivated

 just finished putting tubes in the rear tires and bolting them back on. this is one impressive tractor just on physical size alone. i am giving up on trying to turn the motor and will pull it out later for a winter project.  this weekend i am picking up a set of 29 x 13.50 - 15 tires i will put on if this tractor turns out to be a runner.  for now it is getting pushed in the corner and i am moving on to the running tractor to do some repairs.

 

thanks
