We went to Houston last Tuesday and picked up the HT 20D, Man this thing is BIG!! It came with a 72" mower deck, 54" power angle front blade, and factory 3 PT. hitch. The Ag's have a little dry checking, but no wear at all. The only issue that I cna see is the PO had started to try to fix the fuel issue and had taken a piece or two off the engine, I will try to get the time to put it back together in a few days, I hope. I need a Engine manual for the diesel engine, and don't see one in the manual section, maybe someone has one that they would share with me. Thanks

Looks like it's been altered for deep water use! Gotta love diesel!

Unfortunately, the engine manual for the Wisconsin WD2-860 diesel seems to be virtually non-existent. I have had an HT20D for almost 5 years, and have never been able to find a manual for that engine. Good luck! Let me know if you find one, please!

I see in the pics that you also have the original 3-pt lock-up. Those are kind of rare, too. Most of them seem to have disappeared over the years. Nice find.

As doug said the manual is very hard to find so if that pans out let me know. Looks like they removed the fuel solenoid that was a problem area for the motor would cause the gov to drag and not run right some shims will fix that.Pretty good deal there with the 3 point. And yes the rod sticking out the back is the lock-up rod.

Bob, Thanks for the info. Was there any bulletin or write up done on this and how to correct it?

The rod would allow you to raise the 3pt pull the rod out and then you could unhook the lift rod from the rock shaft.and the 3pt would stay in the up postion and not need to be removed when using other attachments.
