  1. Seafoam. Your thoughts

    I use it all the timea in all my gas cans so that when I put it in my engines I expect them to run better. And they do. My brother-in-law had a motor bike that ran really bad after sitting for a long time .I told him about seafoam and he tried it and the next time I saw him he said that engine runs beautiful now. So he's a Believer to. After seeing first hand what ethanol will do to a carburetor in a few months of setting I'll use anything that will held. I'm a believer .
  2. where to buy parts online

    If you have the part number google it. If you don't have the part number go to manuals section and get a parts manual. You will get anything on google. That's what I tell my wife.

    Welcome @Brennanbo. It's nice to see young men doing something constructive with there lives and there's nothing better then working on something that you love doing. I think holding a wrench beats holding a cell phone any day.
  5. 520H Hydraulic Lift slow to charge

    I have a sundstrand in my C160 and I use mobile1 10w30 and even in the cold of winter the response is immediate. No delay at anytime. I know the Eaton 1100 is bigger and better but it should be almost immediately able to lift and go in the summer time. I do let mine warm up some in the cold only because the manual says to.

    @WHrookie all of us started the same way knowing nothing about these wheel horse tractors. I read a lot of the posts here just to learn from others problems. Great people here that's why I stayed.

  10. Happy Birthday Howard

    Happy Birthday Howard. Thanks for all you do for the Big Show.
  11. WHEEL HORSE REAR WHEELS SAFE FOR HIGHWAY USE ?

    My thoughts exactly as @JAinVA. The tires and rims used on the riding mowers or small tractors are not for hyway use. There made thinner then a regular trailer tire. And they exceed 1200 RPM’S at hyway speeds can and do separate when hot. Here's a chart and as you can see it only goes up to 45 Mph.
  12. Seat and Seat cover options

    @FatJackDurham Here is the seat I got for my c160. It $63.00 at Northern Tool and has 16 holes to match almost any bolt pattern. It is a very good seat and the bolt holes matched perfectly.
  13. 36” rear discharge blades

    I found a place here I'm Michigan that carry some a lot of wheel horse parts at good prices. https://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Blade/8969/1850333
  14. Seat and Seat cover options

    Most aftermarket seats have many holes to fit on different types of tractors. The seat I got from Northern Tool had 20 or more holes so it fit perfectly on my C160.
  15. wheel horse A 90

    Welcome to Redsqure Another Michigander. Your transmission I believe is a peerless . Depending on the year this may help. Maybe the year of yours and a picture will help
