Re: 1772 vibration

Do you have a clutch in the drive shaft? Secondly if the drive shaft is not lined up properly I think that needs to be corrected first. My 1572 started to vibrate badly. My problem was the clutch and a worn charge pump shaft. I replaced drive shaft with a newer style u joint shaft and replaced charg...

Re: Whats a D640 Diesel from a 1782D worth?

I would not sell unless I gave full disclosure. With all the problems not worth much in my opinion. If it were me I would part it out. You would make more than selling whole. Some parts hard to find and valuable like the hood and fuel tank. Once all is sold go buy a nice diesel to replace it. They c...

Should it stay or should it go

I finally picked up an 1882 I bought a week or so ago. This thing is unbelievable it is the nicest original super I have come across, this makes # 28 for me. Can't decide what to do keep or sell. I am not a cyclops guy as a rule, I have had 5 2182s but sold them all. This thing looks like it was nev...

Super value

Here is the question. What model is the most valuable Super? I don't want to know The one you would pay the most for ( because it is your favorite ) but the one that is actually worth the most and why. I have owned and sold over 25 supers. The one that has brought the most money for me is the 2182. ...

Re: Grand slam of Supers

It came with two hour meters one with 600 and some and a new one installed with under 50 The story is it was broke for one season then replaced. No real way to know but looking at everything 700 seems believable.

Tow hook on Super

For some reason I always thought a Super would look better with a tow hook on the front. So as I was getting ready for plow day I decided to throw one together. I do think it makes the super look better but it also worked very well as I used it to pull a few out at plow day. What do ya think?
