    I cut out a few pieces and they have been laying on the work bench. I've been real busy with some family problems that we won't go into. I've also got old with eye problems bright lights bother me. My welding not what it used to be in other words it ain't pretty. I can still put two pieces metal together that take something bigger then a Garden Tractor to pull apart. I think this is an original ideal but I would put any money on it. It's a removable 2" receiver hitch with a single pin mounting. This tractor all ready had a 2" receiver hitch but the winch has taken up perment residence.

    Pretty sure this qualifies, though I'm new to WH. Friend sent me a picture of this for sale on the side of the road, deep in a rural neighborhood where he lives. A couple of phone conversations and a visit and it was in my trailer. Have tractor with about 650 on Hobbs, big DR lawn/leaf vac, WH trailer, extra deck wheels, 4 gas cans, 25 foot 6" diameter remote vac hose with hand wand. New turf tires, motor with "rebuild" work done. Everything works. Removed seat, rear fender, and tunnel covers to clean and grease everything. Greased all steering gear and deck points. Pulled starter solenoid and emery'd the bore (was sticky), cleaned air filter, runs like a champ.Guesses on what number a great deal would be on these? Can anyone help with exact year? I'm thinking 1990-1992? Link to pictures

    Growing tired of how my cloned carb is running... so, I made another rich choice today & decided to recondition my KT-17's factory original Kohler carburetor. After a 12 hour, overnight chem-dip, this is how it turned out.

    I borrowed at set of 23x10.50 ag's on Cub Cadet rims from a friend for my Raider 12 ( so I could participate in a plow day) . I liked the look and the 10.50's did not stick out of the fenders much more than the 8.50's did with the rims. Here's a pic with one of each wheels. With both 10.50's

    Decided to be pro-active and have a new boiler installed. The old one was approaching 21 years and was a slight leaker, not to mention it was a cheapie steel boiler. Now have a Weil McLain Gold cast iron unit. Hoping to see a reduction in my oil consumption 👍

    THANK YOU for the idea. It has turned what was a nightmare job every year to something I look forward to do. That video is only a portion of the side of the property and that was only basically one days worth of leaves since I had cleaned it yesterday also. Just for reference on my neighbors yard it take 6 landscapers with backpack blowers and one poor guy dragging a two wheeled blower to clean the whole place in about 1-1/2 hours. Two hours later the place looks like it hasn't been done in weeks. In one hour sitting down I basically do the same amount of work. Its a bit of a sad day when I remove that thing for the winter!

    Got off work early today (boss says we're getting too much overtime) so came home and did a little tinkering on the Horses. Took the fenders off the C141 and put them on the C125 to see if I liked the looks of the metal pan. Now need to find a set to permanently mount cause I really love the look...they really make the wide ags stand out. Then hopped on the 125 and went for a ride around the lake that is behind the RV park where we live.

    Found a C-121 while looking for another puller project, but this one is a true Barn Find. Got it from the original owner, other from paint wear it is complete with all the decals in tact and in great readable condition (looks like new), the deck has no ruct, no rust on any of the metal, The choke and throttle still has the lettering on then. The seat has been replaced with a dealer replacement with no logo on it. The original seal had the dealer logo on it, but it was discarded about 2 weeks ago. The only body damage is a small dent on the grill opening. Still has 3 of the original tires on it and not weather checked or worn very much, always stored inside the barn. The 12 hp Kohler hasn't run for 4 yrs. but is free, the reason they parked it, the outboard bearing on the PTO clutch seized. I want to paint it but the decals are in such good condition I hate to disturb them. It is a well maintained Survivor and I think just wipe it down with a scochbrite pad and clear cote it. The original owner bought it new in 1981 and used it until the PTO gave out, then his kids got him a zero turn, I bought it from him, C-121 8 Speed 91-2K802-25294 168 Mod K301AS Spec 47648d Serial 9701798 12 HP

    @squonk Do you check the internet daily for stories that you can use (names changed to yours of course) or do you have a black cloud hanging your head or did someone give you the evil eye. You need to move before we read " Local man mowing yard if killed by a truck load of live chickens wreck" , no chickens hurt in the accident.

    Worked on a 42 inch mower deck I bought for $50 that needed a new belt and some cleaning up with a little paint. Center pulley grease fitting was bad . It has no hex sides left and would not accept grease so had to be removed. Tried several methods even with heat and no luck. Finally used a 7/32 drill bit and drilled down the center. Saved the threads and did not even need to retap it! New 1/4 x 20 grease fitting went right in an greased it up! New belt and some paint and back together for next year's mowing .

    Yeah, stuff is nasty. Eats everything and the fumes of the older stuff was pretty bad. If I got within 10 ft. of the stuff and went home my wife knew I had been near it. I had a 5 gal pail of the Napa Carb cleaner years ago. Same stuff. It ate right thru the bottom of the pail! Only thing I've seen worse is Nu-Brite coil cleaner. I've had AC units smoking using it.

    Took the c100 out into the pasture after putting the tire chains on. Scraped and hauled mud and dirt to the low corner.

    Some sad news indeed... always loved to hear the story of how your wife volunteered to drove it 25 miles... on treacherous, ice covered roads, through a blizzard, with no coat...just to get it home. Keep the faith brother, you'll get it going again.

    Let us know what you find Fred. I looked at it on eBay and honestly, I'm afraid it is pretty rough with just a newer coat of paint. I saw several go to $500 to $750ish at the Charlottesville auction and some of them looked a lot better. Maybe I'm wrong, hope I am!

    If it's original it's a Kohler. But a non-running D-180 for close to 2K!!!! Ouch! I don't even need to see pics to know that one is overpriced. Having no way to verify that the hydro tranny is good is almost a deal killer. In my opinion anyway 🤔

    Surprisingly most of my customers have never been to the forum. Most of my phone up customers do not use the internet. A family member or friend gave them my info. Standard questions are Where can I get parts? or What color to paint. Or What year is my tractor. I would say 50% of my customers have their Father or Grandfathers old Wheel Horse and are trying to refurbish or restore it for sentimental reasons so I always tell them to go to wheelhorseforum.com they will help you save your horse.

    You couldn't ask for better weather and the variety of equipment was outstanding. Member @turnnleft was there with his grandson and a lot of outstanding RJs. This poor horse has been abused! Here are a few more photos of the show. Don't know what this is but it was Not For Sale, owner had picked it up a few weeks ago and hoped to find out more information fro people at the show. Here is a Standard Twin walk behind tractor that has been converted to a rider. Very interesting! I have one in my barn and have plans to do something similar with it. Massey was the feature tractor this year. This gentleman had a great Deere toy collection

    First off They’re only original once. My no paint just buff and wax and you’ll be amazed. My all original 1057 had a quick wet sand by @stevebo with 2000 or 3000 grit (Steve will have to tell ya what he used) then a buff and wax . It turned out beautiful. Yes there’s some chipping on the grill where I had a dent hammered out but it’s all part of the tractor’s 50yrs history .

    Yes I am, but I am visiting family in St Augustine, FL so I can't run out to the barn to take a picture. I just put one on the 418 C and used the round pump and mounted it to the bolt at the front of the foot rest. It was right in line with the fuel hose and close to the fuse holders on the other side. See photo below (not mine) On the 312 your fuel line runs further forward so might move it forward as needed.

    To be sure you have adequate clearance you need 1-3/8 inch back set. Many other brands (JD) use a 2-3/8 back set. Depending on your model the 2-3/8 may work if you do not want chains. Hydro fans can be a problem with the deeper backset however depending on your tire size

    Be sure to mount the pump lower than the tank on the tractor so it will work best. Also, be sure to put it on a fuse protected circuit that is turned on and off with the key.

    Thanks, Jim, the guy goes by greenbrushtrees, here. He sent me two new 111170 pulleys shipped for $47.50 , the cheapest I could find was 60.00 each plus shipping. Yesterday was at my sisters house, B-I-L asked about the deck in the truck bed, told him I was going to get some welding done. He said the old guy down the road does some welding for him, the guy use to fab roll bars and frames for the local short track and drag racers back in the 60's, 70's and 80's. Three hours, a few beer, $20.00, and some great stories, deck looks great. New belt is $52.00, so what looked to be a $200.00 + refurb, ends up $120.00 and a new friend.

    Carlos, Yes the fuel pumps can be a headache. I install an electric one right away on anything I buy, then no worries about getting fuel. These two I show here are the types I use and are readily available here in the states through ebay - usually under $25

    Keep the faith, I grew up on a B wide front end that my grandfather bought new and C narrow front that my uncle bought used then dad got it but sadly had to sell it to make room for the Kioti, Jeff.

    Nearly everything on a D is unique other than the pump and rear hydraulic motor - it is the same as the C-series but it is configured in a divorced setup with a set of steel lines and flat steel manifolds that run between the pump and motor , the pump is driven directly off the engine . They are not fun to work on - it is highly cramped and the entire tractor is built around that pump . Now , that said - the engine is fairly easy to pull and it's a fairly bulletproof K-482 Kohler twin opposed with an oil pump - it is a very stout engine for it's rating (highly underrated) . I paid $75 for mine in non-running condition - but a lot of stuff had issues and was worn badly - especially the front axle . Early models up to ''75 had used 3/4" spindles on the wheels/steering and wore out easily . The 56" blade that came with it was mangled badly - but I'm a welder and a mechanic so everything got repaired/replaced . Tires are much bigger on this model and not cheap , either - there's a lot to consider and for what they are asking that thing better be like new with few issues for that price , which I doubt . The pump and the coupling between it and the flywheel side of the engine is highly prone to stripping the splined teeth - that alone cost me several hundred dollars to upgrade it to a used/good pump , have a key way cut in it's shaft and modify the cast coupling for a key , but it should not fail again . I rebuilt the Ross steering box for about $60 - easy enough to do as long as the worm gear isn't damaged or just worn out , which can happen . I'm knocking on nearly $1,000 into it now and haven't touched any paint or decals - that's just in hard parts and machine work . SO , buyer beware... I will say this , when the run they are an animal but they still have some limitations - mostly being that pump setup and the rear axle and especially the pre-'75 differential issues . Using the C-series rear hydro unit and longer axles to make it work made them weaker than a C due to the added stress when they made it wider - it should have been a heavier unit all-around .

    I wondered when you were going to give the metal fenders a try. I remember the "before" pictures, this is much better. Do you get any interference with the big tires? That's a nice setting for a ride too, I think I'd be inclined to do that every day.

    My father in law paid $1,000 for a non-running 18 Auto (what became the D-180 the following model year). He put some time into it before "gifting" it to me. I've thrown $350 into it to get it running. Still dealing with some adjustments, but it starts and runs just fine. That said, I personally would not pay over $800 for a non-running model if NEEDING something to cut grass and use. If you are a collector, looking for a project, or a full resto... then I could see paying more.

    Yep, the motor is a Kohler twin 18hp and if in good condition is a BEAR!! But, nonrunning and in the D series for 1800 .... uh-uh. Parts for the engine are scarce and if the hyd drive has probs then youve got a a monster headache. The steering can also be a prob - tho at least it can be fixed. Mind you, the D is a hellava tractor in decent running condition, but even then it would need to be especially nice to get in that price range.

    Got tires tired of looking at the ugly cracked plastic fenders, so borrowed the set off my C141 for a while...its going to be a LONG time before the 141 is up and running...figurevi will be able to find another set to go on the 125 sometime in the future. Really like the looks of the metal pan a lot better.

    Gotta say I love the wide ags too. I would like to put a set on my c125 next spring and wondered how 10.5s would look on the stock rims. Now, I've gotta have 'em!
