    Thank you erij for your reply. That is exactly what occurs when I try to use the rod. It appears to bind and not rise as smoothly as the chain did. My 160 is a worker so maybe it’s best if I continue to use the chain and not the rod. Thank you again.

    Thanks. Useing the manual can you tell me which hole part # 7-59 the tri-union goes into?

    I have the rod but am unsure how it is attached. Some photos may help.

    On my recently purchased 1975 C160 has a lift chain for lifting the deck that does not look original to the tractor. The manual shows a lift rod and no chain. Can someone post a picture of what the lift rod looks like and how it is attached to the lift. It is a manual lift. Thank you.

  10. C-160 lift cable installation

    Thank you for the response. I will check on them tomorrow.
  11. I have a 1975 C-160 8 speed manual. I want to install a new lift cable but I can't figure out how to sperate the body sheet metal from the top of the transmission to slide the lift cable into the groove. I removed the two bolts on top of the transmission but that didn't help. Has anyone else done this that may have the answers? Thank you in advance.
  12. C160 transmission

    I need some opinions on which is the best fluid to run in my 1975 C160 8 speed transmission. Thank you in advance
  13. Just picked up a C-160

    Yes that is what the parts are for! Thank you for all your help.
  14. Hi guys! I just picked up this C-160 and I have a few questions. It is a 1975 and appears to be all original except the front tires. My question is what is the lower pulley that is located next to the transmission pulley for? Also the drive belt guard appears to be oversized. Are both of these designed for a attachment? It starts and runs great with no smoke. The transmission also works flawlessly. Even the headlights work! Thanks for any help.
  15. In search of some expert advise. I have a C160 that I wish to bring back the natural "patina" as much as possible without reprinting. What tried and true methods have been used by other members on their machines? Thank you all in advance.
