I Found an HT20D 20 minutes from me through another forum. I contacted the owner and made an offer on the machine last weekend. we agreed on a price and i picked it up an hour ago. he has had it since 1990 and has actually done a lot to the motor in the past. It was sleeved and rebuilt once before and had injection work done as well.
My goal is to restore the machine and show it along with my 1250 repower.
The good thing is it runs and mows. The best part is it came with a Ducati workshop manual and a parts manual! It came with a spare starter and some other parts.
Currently uploading 2 videos of it and ill post them as soon as they are up.

That is a nice find and to get the manuals for the motor is like getting gold with it .If you don't mind i would love a copy of the manuals or maybe upload to the site.Can't wait to see the pics.

Changed the fluids and filters in the tractor today. Looks like its been a while. Cleaned the internal oil filter for the engine too


acceptable oil pressure is 25-45psi on this engine. I Checked the oil pressure and it was on the low side at 20psi so i shimmed the pressure relief valve. Im at about 32psi now.

Hooked the plow up from my 1250 and ill be plowing some snow tomorrow. i think i might mount the cab on the tractor too but i need to bend some brackets for it first
