  1. Speed up Your Horse

    Great post! Thanks for all the information. I like the idea of speeding up WHs for racing and how it is done. But for me, I like spending time on the old tractor. I only care that my WH goes faster than the grass grows and sky snows.
  2. Hi Everyone

    I didn't think of that, Amanda. That's how old a geezer I am. I would have been all all over the web. Thanks for the warning.
  3. Hi Everyone

    Amanda, I'm sure the neighbors would be laughing, too. I would be. If it wasn't me. :scared-yipes:
  4. Hi Everyone

    They'll probably see me in my boxers mowing the lower forty. 😧
  5. Hi Everyone

    Thank you for a warm welcome, everyone. Don, I'll post a picture right after I get out to the "Estate" to take a photo. I have to tell you that I can be a bit of a reductionist. What I mean is, right now the WH is down to it's "underwear", so to speak. I took the hood/grill off to clean the engine compartment and have yet to put it on. I have a feeling that the neighbors are appalled when I take the old horse out to cut the lawn in its scivvies.
  6. Hi Everyone

    This is a great place for information regarding Wheel Horse tractors. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it. I've already posted a question and gotten responses. I'm not a Wheel Horse owner, yet. I'm the executor of my mom's estate and among the items is an LT-1100 3-Speed that my dad bought in 1984. He passed away about 10 years ago and I've been using his WH since then to maintain mom's lawn, blow snow and cart yard debris around. Dad also had a Murray tractor that he bought in 1999. That died a long time ago. But the WH is always ready to work. I have a drive belt issue now that I have asked a question about in another area. But this tractor's engine is completely amazing in that it starts every time. Sometimes it seems to start before my hand touches the key. That little engine just loves to work.
  7. Help With A 1984 LT-1100

    Hi Garry, Thank you for your help. I'm not sure which manual the "Brake and Clutch Linkage" page is in. Sorry. I have looked and just don't seem to be able to find it.
  8. Help With A 1984 LT-1100

    Thanks for the effort Gerry. The LT-1100 3-speed has a pulley on the transmission, it also has two idler pulleys mounted on the chassis. There is a single guide on the rear idler pulley shaft and a double guide on the front idler pulley shaft. There is one more guide mounted directly on the chassis next to the transmission pulley. Up front on the vertical drive shaft that comes from the engine, there are two pulleys. One drives the transmission. The other drives attachments like the mowing deck blades, snow blower, etc. I think I have the belt path for the transmission belt pretty well figured out except for the path around the front idler pulley and front double guide. The odd thing is that there is a very clear diagram in the parts manual that shows the belt, the shape the belt takes when it is properly installed, and all the pulleys and guides except the front idler pulley and double guide.
  9. Hello everyone. I'm new here. I've spent time going through the forums and manuals trying to find a picture of the undercarriage of this model. I need to install a new drive belt that runs from the PTO to the Transmission. The old one broke so I'm not certain as to the path the belt should take around the pullies idler wheels and guides. I did find the instructions for the replacement. It included a VERY bad picture. The picture is so bad that I can't even make out the guides. Does anyone have a better picture or link to one? Thanks.
  10. Thank you Dave. I think that diagram should help quite a bit. Garry, thank you for the directions to the manual. That should be useful, too.
  11. Does anyone know where I can get a Routing Diagram for an LT-1100 3-Speed Drive Belt. I'm looking for the routing diagram for the drive belt that runs from the engine to the transmission. Any help would be appreciated.
