  1. This came as a videotape with my 17-44HXL. Video quality is not the best but it is as good as I could convert and upload. My computer skills are somewhat limited. Cleat
  2. You need the shaft as well. The bottom end and gear are different. Length will likely be a bit different as well so your steering wheel may sit up just a little higher.
  3. 312 creeping throttle

    A claw hammer and a block of wood works well. At least that is how I remove the 'T' handles on my 520's
  4. Should this pin tap out?

    WD40 is not penetrating oil. get some kroil or other real penetrating oil and you will stand a better chance.
  5. 520h no charge question

    Yep, check all connections. That is precisely the reason to go straight from the regulator to the battery cable at the starter solenoid with a 30A inline fuse. 9 pin can't handle that kind of current. Also check the 30A fuse. Cleat
  6. ? on demise of Wheel horse

    I am not arguing the quality point as I am obviously a Wheel Horse nut but Metric is the way of the world now. Your new truck or car made by the big 3 are all metric top to bottom. For the price I hope they are not total junk. Cleat
  7. 520H fuse block

    Here is the wire diagram. Later model 520 wire diagram.pdf It shows the 3 fuses, how they are wired and the wire colours. I personally wire from the voltage regulator straight down to the starter motor solenoid battery cable with the 30A inline fuse. Fuse holder is down by the solenoid. You will then only have 2 (15A and 25A) fuse holders up where they are now. That takes a large load off of the 9 pin connector. Wheel Horse did this on the early 520's, unsure why they changed for the later ones. Any more questions just ask. Cleat
  8. 520 h hydro trans

    They do make a weird sound. I guess that is why it states not to tow. I believe it is safe to push around however. After they sit a while the sound gets much less. I guess the oil runs out.
  9. OOps, 520H did it again

    Filter is Toro Wheel Horse 108335 or Napa 1410. Cleat
  10. Why does my 520 keep catching fire?

    The only real electrical issues I have are mainly left to me by previous owners. Once I repair, clean and grease up the connections then I have no more issues. I do not leave a machine outside ever and that helps a lot as well. Cleat
  11. Why does my 520 keep catching fire?

    You can run without the LED board. My 520HC only just has one LED for low oil pressure. Cleat
  12. Why does my 520 keep catching fire?

    Has the harness been butchered in ant way anywhere ? Just wondering if a signal to the board that is supposed to ground is instead being supplied with 12V or vice versa. Signal could be from any of the LED indications displayed on the board. For example Parking brake signal is +12V when disengaged and open circuit when engaged to operate that particular LED, if that signal gets inadvertently grounded then board could get damaged. Engine Temp is grounded to turn on LED. If +12V is inadvertently applied then board could get damaged. I have enclosed the wire diagram for your machine which outlines every circuit to your display board and you can follow each wire to determine the proper signal supplied. Later model 520 wire diagram.pdf This may take a bit of time but in the end should solve your problem. Cleat
  13. Make sure the clip on the master link faces the correct way so normal rotation forces it on and not off. They do not normally just come apart on their own. Cleat
  14. That's what I use as well. Don't know if it is a perfect match however as I usually paint at least an entire panel or part. The spray paint and cans of liquid paint to get sprayed on with a spray gun are different shades even though they are from the same manufacturer. All of my tractors have this small discrepancy and after a while you don't notice any more. You can just tell from this pic. The hood and fender were professionally sprayed with TSC IH red and everything else is TSC spray paint in IH red. Cleat
  15. NJTOM's 701

    The one I drove was owned by my grandfather and I believe it was a 1959. Apparently the clutch went out on it a couple of times but never when I remember. By that time we had bigger diesel tractors to do the heavy work. You could pin the clutch pedal in two positions depending on whether you planned on using the PTO or not. Gear shift was a weird one that slid up and down then front to back to select gears. Ours had a loader as well but I only actually seen it on once as steering was a bear with it on. However, the mounting frame stayed on and it had round loops on both sides with a support bar running over the top of the dash. Lever to raise and lower was on the top of the transmission and it simply had a trip lever for the bucket. Cleat
