  1. K181 not starting

    Hi group! I have a ‘77 B80....I rebuilt the fuel system from tank to carb and just recently rewired the ignition system...it was starting and running fine, but I noticed a significant oil leak...so, I pulled the motor, broke it down, and replaced every gasket...turns out the bearing plate gasket was 95% gone... So, after putting the motor back on, I put a new plug, plug wire, points, and battery on as well...I go to start it, and nothing! I jumped the starter and it turned right over...so, something is wrong in the ignition circuit...what could it be, and how can I diagnose it? Nothing has changed...it’s the same brand new ignition circuit that worked fine a week ago. And just so you know, all the safety switches were pulled out of this machine years ago. please help...my grass is overtaking my house!!!

  3. Plow wanted

    @case442 Thanks for responding! Would you post a photo and provide a price please?
  4. Plow wanted

    I have a ‘77 B80 and need a plow before the snow flies here in the northern mountains of PA! If you have one or have advice on where to find one, please let me know. I’ve kept an eye on local classifieds and hit the yard sales for two years now, and haven’t come across a single one!

    Do you know if this will fit a B80? And will you ship?
  6. exhaust stack

    As a new Wheel Horse owner, I have seen many photos of tractors with modified exhausts...I love the look of the vertical exhaust stacks, and I'm interested to hear from people who have made this mod, and what info and tips they can provide...
  7. Light kit for '77 B-80

    Thank you both! I am thinking ahead to winter here in northern PA...I'm going to be in the market for both lights, and a plow later this summer...
  8. Light kit for '77 B-80

    lights were an option on my 1977 B-80 ... any ideas on where I can purchase them? either used or a new kit...
  9. Motor ready to fly with new carb!

    Yes sir...that was the problem...I didn't think that would make that much of a difference, but she is running good now! Thanks guys!!!
  10. Motor ready to fly with new carb!

    The point I'm trying to make though is that this didn't happen when I first purchased the tractor...only after I put on a new carb...
  11. Motor ready to fly with new carb!

    It may have been...I will have to move it and see...but I don't think that little of an adjustment will resolve my problem... When I'm running the motor and find a decent throttle position in first gear, the motor nearly stalls when I engage the PTO...then, when I find the appropriate throttle position with the PTO engaged and I disengage it, the motor is revving way way high!??
  12. Motor ready to fly with new carb!

    What's strange is, I didn't have this problem when I first bought this Wheel Horse a few weeks ago! Now, with this new carb, it just started happening...
  13. Motor ready to fly with new carb!

    Most likely the previous owner if that's the case... (not sure why it's posting the pic upside down! lol...it's not upside down on my cell, and it won't allow me to edit it) If this isn't a good angle, let me know...
  14. Motor ready to fly with new carb!

    After recently acquiring a '77 Wheel Horse B-80, I had to give it some TLC... Fuel Delivery: new carb, rebuilt fuel pump, new fuel lines, new in-line fuel filter, installed an in-line fuel shutoff, cleaned the inside of the fuel tank and petcock... Start Circut: new battery, new solenoid, and all new wiring... so...it starts right up, and sounds great, but my problem is with the throttle...it seems to either be purring beautifully at idle, or ready for takeoff at full throttle! lol There is no in-between...what am I missing???
