  1. That is good to know. I have the need for one right now. I am not sure if the shaft on my blower is 3/4". I feel there wheelhorse had another shaft size.
  2. Regarding his original question, what style V-pulley accommdates the drive belt. I recently purchased a drive pulley and it was tapered to a perfect V whereas the original V pulley has a flat area that the belt appears to ride on.
  3. GT14.....I am hopefully putting in a HF 22 hp during my upcoming holiday break. Regrading the clutch, did you fabricate the bracket that mounts to the engine block and secures PTO or is that a part that is available somewhere. Tx
  4. Woodruff axle key

    I just measured the broken one I took out...seems to be a good match for the 937097 number.. Shame on me for not scrolling down farther on the parts list. Tx!!!##
  5. Woodruff axle key

    They are not stuck.
  6. So simple....yet so complicated. Ordered a woodruff key for my 310-8 (assuming 21-10K804). It has the 1- inch axle. The WH parts list says 937108 which I ordered and is way oversized. Measures 1/2" x 1 3/8. Anybody have the right part number?
  7. K341 16 hp torque

    Thank u. I now see why people love those kohlers
  8. K341 16 hp torque

    Anybody know the max torque output of these engines. Want to compare to 16 hp Carroll Stream and 22 hp predator.....tx
  9. The Horse comes out to play!

    What engine is in that beast?
  10. K341 Engine Speed / Govenor

    Back again..now have time to tinker. Question regarding throttle cable and hook up. Something must be missing from this setup. Throttle cable directly connects to speed contol arm and one clamp fastens it to shroud. Should there be more hardware? PO has cobbled this tractor so up here and there so not sure what is right. Engine is k341 spec 71371 serial 14199379. Anyone have picture of proper set up? Sorry for no picture, problem loading.
  11. K341 Engine Speed / Govenor

    All makes sense......Thank you both
  12. K341 Engine Speed / Govenor

    Have a working Kohler with really high RPM when i push throttle cable wide open. About to adjust the Govenor assuming that is the fix. Should adjustment be done without throttle cable and spring attached? Manual does not mention this.
  13. Leaking Seal

    Thank you to you both...may try this weekend. Stopping by to pick up a pick like tool to remove seals. hubs do not want to come off. Have been spraying them daily. May need a puller. Will see what tool i come up with.
  14. Leaking Seal

    Have a 1985 416-8 that appears to be weeping from the axle seals with drips every night after use. But as I looked closer and began to clean the area, the major source seems to be coming from around the drum brake. I am assuming a bad seal. Now, I remember reading here that the axle seals can be picked out and replaced without cracking open the tranny. Is that true how the brake drum seal? Never opened a tranny before so will keep my fingers crossed. This all started when I did a preventative drain, flush and refill of transmission. Makes some sense since it probably cleaned the insides of the seals of deposited crud which was acting like a seal in itself. Suggestions Please !!
  15. I did not even consider that as i was following someone else's design. But I don't think the sandwiched bearing (spherical bearing) that I mounted in front of where the battery goes would fit properly in your suggested area due to the extra metal plates i added. I did use the flanged bearing (#24 - WH part 109189) and inserted it into the holes where the shaft passes through. It is kept in place by the collar (#26 - WH part 1085). Not sure if they are providing much support but had them in the parts bin so used them. Found the quick connect online (Summit Racing if I am remembering correctly) ~$46. The steering wheel was acquired at PEP Boys (~$40). Grant is the manufacturer. The sandwiched bearing was TSC parts. A little more than I wanted to spend, but what the heck. Weak points of the fix may be the steering wheel. We humans usually grip the outside part of the wheel along with a cross member. The wheel i got is a smaller diameter and the cross members are metal and angled down. Not sure how much this will annoy my wife when she mows. Will have to wait till Spring to get a reaction. Thanks for the insight. I did notice that now the shaft slop is gone, much play when turning so your suggestion make sense....will take a look
