Just wanted to say hello to everybody. I bought a basket case L2500DT and have been reading the forum for a couple of days and wanted to post something. I may be needing a lot of help from the gang here. Thanks..........bud

There are no basket cases...merely opportunities!

I had an L245 not long ago. How much of a basket case are we talking about here?

Thanks guys, as far as how bad to me its not that bad or at least I don't think so. It's a 99 with 305 hrs. It came with a LB400 loader, 5 foot rotory cutter and a box blade. the previous owner took it through a pond thinking that as long as the exhaust was out of the water it would make it, WRONG. He bent 2 rods but I didn't find any damage to the crank or cylinders. I think I can put in new rods, rings and pistons and be ok. The entire front end is in a box with all of the bolts in one bucket. It will be a fun adventure. I will try to add a picture url. Thanks again...rc

Roadkill -

Next time you talk with this guy, you'll have to mention to him that there's another means of transportation for crossing ponds...they're called "B O A T S" . Geez!

Sounds like you got it under control though. If something arises that stumps you, there are plenty out here to assist.

I was able to pick this up for their payoff (3900.00) so I think I will do ok with it. One thing I'm not real sure of is the head has what they call a pipe pin? Is the blue/green rubber o-ring the one that goes there. The head gasket set doesn't identify it neither does the manual. I'm attaching a Picture link of what it looked like when I picked it up. Thanks in advance.............rc

Shouldn't you sign in as "PondKill"? Or maybe "Waterdog"

Most older submarines were diesel powered. What happened to your tractor would be a natural mistake for any WW2 history buff.

Good thing he didn't read up on diesel locomotives. You would be doing some serious body work too.

I was told that it has been like this for about a year. I have it tore down now and the cylinder walls and crank look good. One of the rods and two of the pistons looked good but I figured I better go ahead and get all new while I'm into it. I ordered three rods, pistons, and ring sets which should be here at the end of this week. The price kinda threw me, 700.00. I will carefully clean up all of the oil ports and reassemble with lubriplate and see what happens. Any advice would be appreciated.............rc
