  1. wheelhorse deck 79108 mulch plug?

    Only thing I can find is the right baffle and the tractor manual states it can be removed for side discharge mowing. Item #13 https://www.partstree.com/parts/toro/mower-deck-assemblies/79108-toro-44-recycler-mower-deck-for-xl-series-lawn-tractors-sn-6900001-6999999-1996/baffle-cover-assembly/ Garry
  2. RJ58 Hard to Roll In Neutral

    It takes a fair effort to turn the axles so the input shaft will turn because you are overdriving the input shaft. I do not know the ratio but often advertised as 100:1 which may be engine rpm to wheel rpm. 1 turn of axle = say 75 turns of the input shaft takes considerable effort. 75 turns of the input shaft = 1 turn of the axle should take very little effort. Others that have tried this on this transmission may have a better recommendation. If in neutral I have no idea of the force required. Garry
  3. Toro drive belt?

    You will get the correct length belt only from Toro. The replacements only come in even inch lengths for the most part. Transmission drive belt 108501 - (HB/5L x 81.50" or 5/8" x 81.5") Garry
  4. A VS H

    Looks like they all use a variation of the Eaton 1100. -032 and -062 and I don't know the differences. They may be just minor improvements made over time. Go to https://lookup3.toro.com/partdex/index.cfm?xCaller=Toro Type in 416-H or 417-A The results that come up each have a "Details" page. Click on that and the transmission model is listed in the chart. Sadly Toro no longer includes the model year for each here but still available at this link https://www.partstree.com/parts/ Garry

    Thanks boomer Garry
  6. belt size

    A 5/8" wide belt is a "B" section belt. And watch the length. A true B-82 is 85" long and a true B-79 is 82" long. You will also find B-82's that are 82" long. Garry
  7. Time to fix the brake

    Try backing off the adjustment at the brake band 1/2 a turn at a time till it will latch. I find it is too easy to get the brake set too tight and the latch won't lock. Garry
  8. 1986 414-8 clevis lift question

    It should fit. The slots were provided to easily adjust the lift height but it also increases the effort required. Garry
  9. 522xi Electric PTO Removal

    Don't see anything in the 5xi service manual but here it is. Click on the picture first. Once the bolt and flat washer are removed from the end of the crank plus a bracket to stop the assembly from turning the clutch should pull off. Garry
  10. Mower deck roller bracket

    Guessing this is the deck you have. Don't believe the brackets are available separately but the parts list will show what is or was available. Garry

  13. Tractor Identification

    Your model number is 1-6231 - an early 1968 model using a starter generator. Mid-year production switched to a Bendix starter and alternator charging system but the tractor model number stayed the same. That looks like a very original model. Click on the chart below Garry
  14. 312-8

    The 312-8 only uses one belt. Click on the picture and the belt is on the page that comes up. If you need belts for a mower deck what is the width of cut? Side or rear discharge? How many mower blades? Garry
  15. Snow Blade Identification

    Does not look like a Wheel Horse blade or A-frame. Possibly someone modified a blade to work on the WH and they did a very good job of it. The only place I see that could be improved is to add another crossmember about 18" from the back where the frame starts to narrow. That is a weak spot now. Garry
