  1. GT-14 Snowball Project..

    A right angle box was the first thing that came to my mind but they are super expensive and kind of weak. I found a source for a 12 puck pulling clutch that I really don't need, and that will allow me to run bigger injectors.. And I also just picked up 2 tiny turbos off a Volvo at the junkyard today.. See why this is called the snowball project? I'll have to get some pics of the GT-14, I'm sure it will be totally out of hand by the time it runs so stay tuned. I do have a pic of the turbo 1276 in which I just took a junkyard turbo that was way too big and bolted a carb on the front and it just kind of worked. That's the one I cut grass with weekly
  2. First off, for a little background, I have a 1276 and a 72' GT-14 which I inheireted from my Grandpa who bought them new. Used both for a while until the hydrostat gave up on the GT and shortly thereafter, the motor on the 1276. Swapped the motor to have a good running tractor which left me with a "stripped GT-14" and somehow in the mixup, a turbo on the 1276 (which I will get into later). Anyway, I started out by buying two bad 8 speeds with intent to make one good one and swap out the old wore out hydrostat unit and then power it with a v-twin or really just anything bigger than the Kohler that it originally started with. Ran across a good deal on a Yanmar 3-cyl diesel but now I have a dilemma on my hands.. What can I use for a shaft driven transmission? I think the 8 speed idea is getting scrapped in favor of some sort of shaft driven setup (preferably with a rear pto aswell). Has anyone done this? The only thing I can find are Cub Cadet transmissions, in which I really can't "find" to purchase one. Is that like totally against the rules in the Wheel Horse world? Haha.

    I'll get some up here when I can. We've had some wild weather here the past few days and I haven't had a chance to get either one out

    Hey everybody, somewhat new to the Wheel Horse's here. I've got a 66' (?) 1276 and a 74' (?) GT-14. My grandpa bought both of them brand new and they've been in the family ever since. I pulled the 1276 out of the shed where it's lived for the past 18 years, gave it a little TLC and have been happily using it every week to cut the grass here at the house. (Cuts a whole lot better than I ever imagined might I add) Just got the GT-14 out of my dad's garage tonight and brought it over to my house and am in the middle of doing the same thing. I've got a few attachment's for it, too. Not real sure on exactly what all is there, but will be finding out this weekend when I dig them all out. Anyways, I hope to get some good information (and possibly be able to give some too!) P.S. Would post a picture but they are both kinda tore apart at the moment and aren't too pretty, will get some soon
