Thought I would post a few pics of my 200 as they don't seem to show up often, pulled it out of a 4+ year slumber, put some gas in the tank(it was empty), put a battery in it, and with a little work, she runs again, the reason it was parked was the brake peddle had  rusted tight, been lubing that good, once I get that fixed as well as some other projects I'm gonna install new drive belts, change all the fluids and put her back to work.

And yes I have another seat for it and am going to get new taillights(have a new headlight lens as well).

The chassis is the same as the rest of the 200 series, I have actually gone into Deere Country in Adamstown, PA with my dad when this was his tractor and the parts guy had never heard of a 200, I can get parts at my local dealer, sometimes if they can't find a 200 in their system I'll tell them to look for the same part but for a 210, the only real difference between a 200 and a 210 is the K181 vs. the K241.

If you get down to the nitty gritty details of it their are actually a few differences. They actually used at least six different frames for the 200 series tractors. My 75 has the original engine but my 76 has a 241 in it. I do have a k181 for it when I get around to getting it done. I keep looking for mufflers for the 200 k181 but they are nla If you are ever down this way let me know I'm not far from
Adamstown

Sounds german. Reinhold is a male first name and a family name. We will write Schöneck with the umlaut or Schoeneck and it means nice corner, or better nice landscape.

There were a lot of Swiss/German settlers in our area. We have quite a few town names that are German. One local road still has the German name on the sign.

PA Dutch is actually PA German(I can't spell the correct word that would begin with  a D, Help), my father speaks the language (PA Dutch) pretty good as his grand father spoke it in the home, it is a form of low German, I can speak very little of it, the Amish use it regularly.

A 200/208 is on my wish list as I love the less common machines.  I think a 200/208 would look great next to my 120 and 312.

Don't forget the fun (odd) names such as Blue Ball, Paradise, Bird in Hand and so forth.

I'm not sure I have seen a 208 in person, I have seen a few 200's.

Let me make the suggestion that before you put new belts on her, clean any rust off of the sheaves. The rust will rapidly eat the cloth off of your new belt, otherwise (how did I learn this?). I've found the plastic bristle wheel at Harbor Freight work great for this task.

I have a narrow brass bush that should work great, thanks for the tip.

Got the brake peddle loose, now gotta work on getting it completely free, between me and my dad we have had this tractor for 12 or 13 years, but never realized there was a grease fitting for this peddle, oops.
