Nice D4-10 on ebay in Rochester, NY. Has "make offer", but buy it now is kind of high at $750. All I can see is the grill emblem & one fuel tank strap is missing. If anyone here buys it, I'll give you a tank strap. I have no extra emblem. Ends March 20th.

That one looks tempting. Says he will drive up to 100 miles. If that is the case it wouldn't be too far to go get it :D

Shouldn't it be a 10hp wisconsin? In his description it says 7 1/2 hp. His description leaves a lot to be desired, in one sentence he says it doesn't run and needs rewired then the next sentence he says it runs.

Yes, it IS a 10hp engine. The TRA10-D is a true 10hp, while the TR10-D is only 8 1/4hp. Yep, he contradicts himself...like so many do on ebay. The clutch disc will just be stuck to the pressure plate. Usually starting them in gear, then driving with clutch depressed will get them to free themselves.

Wait a minute... The TR-10D is 8-1/4 HP? I thought it was 10 :confuse:

Unless I'm getting it backwards, the TR is just the same as a S8D with the TRA being 10hp. Check bore/stroke stats. I know, deceptive model number!

All the Bolens Manuals state that the TR-10D engine is 10HP

I'll have to do some digging, but I've read many places that the TR is only a true 8 1/4hp.

They share the same bore, but the TRA has a 1/4" longer stroke than the TR. Same camshaft & carb, so impossible to have the same HP. The TR is same bore & stroke as the S8D. Different crank, piston, and rod.

Check down this page. Hate to dissapoint you guys, but I found out the hard way with my D4-10 Bush Hogs. I sold an extra engine which was a TRA10D. Not until after I sold it did I find out my other 2 engines were lesser hp TR's.

Mfr's H.P. Rating S7D 7.25 H.P. @ 3600 RPM S8D & TR10D 8.25 H.P. @ 3600 RPM TRA10D 10.1 H.P. @ 3600 RPM TRA12D 12.0 H.P. @ 3600 RPM

The tractor brands such as Bolens tag the tractors with TR10D's as 10hp, but they aren't really. Same with Bush Hog tractors, both the D4-10's with TR's or TRA's were still advertised as 10hp, but only the TRA is a 10.

I wish I had more time and money, I live just outside of Rochester NY. If someone here buys it I can pick it up and bring it down to the PA Plow Day. Come on George, throw him a offer!

Hmm that is interesting. I know it mentioned it in the Bolens service manual but thought it was a mistake because Bolens did have some errors in their charts and such.

I guess you are right Dan, I always thought my TR-10D 1050 was a bit weaker than the one my uncle has with the TRA-10D (Both engines were rebuilt too)
