  1. 18 Automatic ignition switch

    Thank You. The 103990 switch works for me.
  2. Voltage Regulator/Rectifier

    I used this one and it seems to work. This one has the 3 prong offset connector instead of the 3 prongs that are inline.
  3. I have a 1973 18 Automatic. While cleaning up the engine shroud, on the right side, sitting on the tractor, I noticed wet oil on the bottom of the cylinder head. Once I wipe the oil off, it stays dry until I run the engine for 5-10 minutes then it will be wet again and the next morning there will be a couple of drips of oil on the floor. I'm still new to this hobby and am thinking I need a new head gasket. I have not removed the head yet. I also noticed a tag on the engine shroud, see picture below. Has anyone else had this oil leak problem? If I order a new head gasket, do I look for a K482 or K532? Would it be a good idea to replace the gasket on the other head, even if it's not leaking? Thank You.
  4. Looks like I need part#101917 or 92-6785. Why are they so expensive? Is there an alternative?
  5. When I go to this link:


    it shows an icon and then asks to enable 3rd party hosting  and something about - what does this mean and how do I do it?

  6. I looked at that listing and am confused. The description says "You are purchasing a digital printout of a Wheel Horse Tractor Parts Manual" but the picture shows a service procedures manual?
  7. I have the owners manual but am wondering if there is a service manual for the 1973 18 automatic. Model: 1-0610 I have the 1978-79 BCD Service manual from the manuals section of the forum but wondering if there is something similar for the 1973 18 automatic. Model: 1-0610 Thanks
  8. D200 Dash light

    Thank You "D" Man. Appreciate the help!
  9. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement assembly for the dash light on the D200? Mine is all corroded. The toro part number is 104032 and is NLA. Does anyone know of a replacement assembly?
  10. 1979 D200 Model 91-20KS02. It's aluminum finned. Pictures below
  11. I thought I saw a post about testing regulators but I can't find it now. How can I test it to make sure it's working correctly?
  12. OK. That sounds like a great idea. Still new to this hobby and appreciate the help. Thanks.
  13. Pacer, I looked this evening and I can see the regulator. I have no idea why PO unhooked it. The plug coming from the engine is not melted and looks ok to me. It is a 3 wire plug but it is not flat. See below. I guess next step would be to test it with a multi meter.
