My nephew ended up delivering it to me Thursday night for the cost of fuel. The loader works great. Will lift the front end off the ground no problem. The tractor runs great after some messing with, it just won't move. The hydro pump sounds like it's working just not getting any movement. Anyway this is my 400 dollar D200

Great deal. Read the manuals. Probably a blocked filter, low fluid, or maybe wrong fluid. Good Luck, Rick

What a GREAT deal, the loader is worth the price and the D-200 is a free bonus. Did you check to make sure the free wheel valve is closed?

I couldn't really get on the free wheel valve. I tried from underneath with an open ended wrench and couldn't budge it. Is a square nut and sockets wouldn't go on the nut through the hole by the brake petal. The manual says to use 10-40 or 10-30 in the transmission . I have the filter just haven't done it yet

Sitting on the seat, there is a hole in the frame of the tractor about where your ankle would be. If you look through the hole, you should see a bolt with a slot in the end of it for a large slotted screw driver. Use a slotted screw driver to rotate the bolt.

Through that hole is a 5/16 share nut with no slot . it looks factory because of the red paint . I can get a 5/16 wrench on it from under neat but can't budge it

Just got back from vacation. That is great looking tractor for $400!

 

So you did get it running?

 

All the freewheel valves I have seen are a slotted screw type. You can remove the side panel that is blocking your access  to the bolt pretty easily, I think its just 4 screws hold the panel. I am thinking that its not the factory screw. If you get it out give us a pic please.

In my book, $400 for just the loader is a bargain!!!!!!!!  That is a super GREAT deal!

My 1974 D-200 has a square headed bolt instead of the slotted type.

 

Through that hole is a 5/16 share nut with no slot . it looks factory because of the red paint . I can get a 5/16 wrench on it from under neat but can't budge it

Mine is square also. Did you try to turn the square headed bolt/plug in both directions?

It only needs turned 1 complete reveloution to go from drive to tow, or from tow to drive.

 

Some of my Wheel Horse autos the tow valve gets turned 90* and some get 1/2 turn, and my D is 1 complete turn.

 

 

By the way, you got a very good deal for the tractor & FEL!

I can't seem to get a socket on it. I tried for about an hour with no luck. I can get a wrench on it from below but I'm not in a good position to turn it. It won't budge
