  1. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    There are 8 inch rims Edit; wh didn't make rims they bought them You can get rims up to 12 inches i think. (My d200 rims are I think 12""
  2. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    They are 7 inch rims you can use 10.50 but depending on the brand (actual sizes differ between brands) they may look bulgy You need to measure the backset correctly. Lay a straight edge across the rim on the back side then measure down to the hub ring. most horses use 1-3/8"
  3. Tractor to run tiller

    I agree with above an 8 speed is ideal for tilling. It does take some effort to raise the tiller, a consideration if you have shoulder problems. 500 hours isn't much. I am always a bit leary about "overhauled" engines. Was it a machine shop ovrhaul or did the PO just throw in some new rings and call it a day....
  4. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    I have both the Harbor Freight small tire and regular size tire machines. Both do sort of OK for what they were designed for. However they do not do real well if the tire bead is really stuck on the rim. i bent the heck out of the bead breaking part of the larger machine. To break stubborn beads i use one of these. The gray one is a beast and will do up to 24 inch wheels. But it is a bit slow. Most time i resort to the slide hammer. Edit: started thinking about how much I have invested in tire tools, also have 10 different Kentool tire irons and Cheatah bead seater. But rough calculation between WHs Big tractors military vehicles and trailers/wagons i have over 100 pneumatic tires to worry about.
  5. Whatever medium you use for the sand blasting it WILL get into bearings and other rub points no mater how much tape you use.
  6. Couldn't find any bearing with 75mm outer other than 45mm or 50mm shaft. I think I would take the old bearing to a bearing place.... http://www.skf.com/us/system/ProductSearchResult.html

  9. Front spindal question / C-175. Rim falls off

    Guys I thought my mind was going so I just went out and looked at my old Dodge (its an M-37 but was made by Dodge) The Left Hand threaded lugs are on the driver side (left). Edit: Don't see much marked hardware anymore like on her. 2 of the initials are long gone now...sad

  12. Front spindal question / C-175. Rim falls off

    Snow plowing is hard on what ever you use to hold the wheel on. Think that when you are pushing heavy snow the front of the tractor wants to go sideways so you turn the wheels a bit to counter and they are slipping sideways. In my case I was plowing to the left and was counter steering so the wheel was being pushed hard against the bolt (in my case) and it unscrewed or in other cases pops off the e clip.
  13. Front spindal question / C-175. Rim falls off

    I admit it has only happened to me once...but that was not a fun day
  14. Front spindal question / C-175. Rim falls off

    Bolts are not fool proof..They can back out, usually left side. Happened to me when plowing a few years ago with aC-175. Fell off several hundred feet from the shop major PIA (That is why old trucks had left hand thread lugnuts on the drivers side) Wheel horse spec'd bolts with a plastic plug in them to keep that from happening but over time plastic gives up. I am using these now.
