This is probably the same machine... what are the odds someone else puts tire chains on the front of their tractor that look like that.

 

 

It is... :D

So... is there really a difference in an HT22 and a HT1000?

HT22 is the same tractor as the HT20D.   HDT1000 has only the same rear as those two... Frme, engine and most of the rest are not the same other then some of the simple stuff on all 3.

So... is there really a difference in an HT22 and a HT1000?

 

Yes and no.  It all depends on how picky you want to get :D :D :D

 

There are differences, but they are minor. 

 

There were two models of the HDT1000.  2388 and 2388s.  The 2388 was built in 1982 and 1983. The 2388s in, probably 1984 and possibly 1985.  That's speculation as I have found nothing that actually references the 2388s other than the fact that it's printed on the OOM and Parts Manuals. Other than on the front cover, the OOM never references the 2388s, and all illustrations are for the 2388.  The parts manual is pretty much the same other than the fact that they tacked on a parts list for the PS as the last page of the manual. There are no footnotes indicating differences for parts between the 2388 and 2388s

 

For the 2388, other than the engine, the biggest would be factory Cruise Control, the longer hood, a different fuel tank, battery location, and a fishplate bolted to the front of the frame to support the fuel tank. I would assume that there would have been different cutouts in the frame to accommodate the engine. An engineering note does say "stronger frames".

 

For the 2388s, it appears that they added factory PS, an auxiliary hydro oil cooler, and different decals.

 

I gave Jerome a book that contained internal engineering notes from Bolens, and he found a reference to the HDT1000.  On that sheet, they referred to it as the HT23D.

 

He was kind enough to send me a picture, which I'll attach here.

HT23D-HDT1000 Paperwork.jpg

 

The biggest noticeable difference, other than the engine, is the travel speed  The HDT1000 will zip along at 13 Mph!  I'm assuming that Bolens did that because the folks overseas tend to drive their GTs on the road and they wanted a good speed for that.

Yours OB is a 2388S-01 That was built starting in 4-15-83 from what info I have found in the rest of that paper work.  Those two books you still have dont happend to have more engineering changes do they? What you gave me starts at 225 I would think any number under 225 would have info on like on the tubes and large frames from the 60s because the were modal with number like 197 and 198.

You got all of the engineering notebooks I had.

 

The ones I kept have attachments information.

 

If you found more notes on the HDT1000, would you be so kind as to scan/take a pic of it/them for me?

No, they are all brochures, parts and owners manuals, price lists, correspondence with manufactures, etc.

 

It's mostly the "Allied Manufactures".

What problem is he having with the starter? The one on my HT20D had a bad bendix, but after lots of searching my local auto electric repair shop was able to find one somewhere in Canada.
