  1. Hi did you find a rear end I have a complete one I'm about 15miles

  2. 416-8

    Ok I have a chance to get a 416-8 with a 48" deck cheep no engine. My question is can I drop in a spare 16hp engine I have from a 416h or is the engine drive pulley different?
  3. Hi Biggin this is Macgyver I'm interested in trading my 60" deck with you . 

    Pm me & will send my cell #

  4. Steering gears

    Here's a question for someone with more knowledge than I. I have a couple of tractors 3 right now. What are the gears made of steel cast iron? Want to know so I can figure out what to do about fixings the slop in the steering. I'm sure I'm not the only one to encounter this problem. I might even talk to someone in my area as we have several gear manufacturers in the Rockford area.
  5. 520H Id

    Looks like I got lucky. Turns out it's a 91 so as I understand it has the gear reduction steering right? Also has a 60"deck that has been rebuilt and it runs good.
  6. 520H Id

    Need a little help with id of a 520. It's in a barn has forward swept front end. There are ball joints on the tie rods. The hydro & lift are on the steering column. Also has A 60" deck any guess? I know you want pics but dont know how to post them.
  7. Who made a Sears loader

    I found it on a Craig's list ad in my area for $900 tractor & loader. It's not home built and still has the Sears decals on the frame.
  8. Who made a Sears loader

    Hi got a chance to buy a Sears tractor with a Sears loader. Would like to know who made it. The tractor looks about the size of a 520 and has an older 20hp Onan.
  9. Hydro oil options

    I have two 520H. Have changed both to. 10 w30 Mobile 1 syn. I will say that both are quieter & seem to pick up faster when cold.
  10. Got a chance to get a tall shoot single stage blower mod 79365 It is for an xi? Can it work with a 520H ?
  11. Change Hydros?

    I'm looking at buying a C160. I understand that it has a Sundstrand axel Is there a reason why I can't change that to an Eaton 1100? I just happen to have one in the shop.
  12. What's it worth

    Got a chance to get a C160 with auto & lift. It runs Kohler engine and mower looks to be 42" SD for $250 sound OK? What hydro is in it Eaton 1100?
  13. I just bought a 516 Wheel Horse. It has a complete & working Sundstrand Rear end. Any one want it? I'm located in northern IL. I won't ship it but if you want to arrange to pick it up let me at.
  14. UHMW base plate for snow thrower

    I know I'm late to the party here but. I have a Wheel Horse single stage blower that has factory wheels on it with a adjusting lever on left side to quick change the height. There are no skids. I know you want pic's but don't know how to do that. I will get the numbers off the tag. I just picked it up today for $40.
  15. Onan disassemble question

    I have 2 onan engine blocks one has the newer crank case breather it is metal and goes straight up the other is plastic and on an angle. Question is how do you remove them? Also one block was a vertical shaft engine but looks identical to the horizontal block. Is there a reason it can't be used with the horizontal crank & oil pump?
