 Wheel horse -- Garden Tractor

I have just acquired an older Wheel Horse lawn/garden tractor (D-200 automatic)! The tiller is in pieces, and I am trying to locate a parts-owners manual for the tractor and the tiller. Any info would be greatly appreciated! P.S. any idea where the serial/model on the engine is located?!

Those were quite well built garden tractors in there day. Toro Wheelhorse is the dealer you will need to find to aquire parts as well as the manuals you might need. These tractors were built in the mid seventies I believe. The engine serial number on the older Kohlers was on the shield on the upper block around the finned area.

L.Graham -

Having rebuilt several D series Wheelhorses, I can attest to the potential difficulties that one will be experiencing finding components.

Many of the parts that were needed were for the engine. That is, I had the 20 hp 4cyl Renault auto engine in mine, Model D-250. This unit was the biggest and baddest of the breed, without question....certainly the heaviest.

A tractor WAY ahead of its time. Most of the parts for the engine, albeit metric, were able to be found either from junkyards (Renault LeCar), or cross referncing bearings, seals, etc. I also found a host of graveyards off the internet that I chatted with.

Are you looking to rebuild the engine? The tractor? Tiller? The whole enchilado? Most components of the D 200 are still reasonably available from the local Toro dealer, as Art mentioned.
