  1. Mower Spindle Bearings

    I just received 10 off amazon for 13.99 bearing number 6203 is 17mm x 40mm x 12mm, mine are sealed both sides but I'll just remove seals, nice having extras and can't beat the price.
  2. C-195 Update

    I have the same year (judging by hydro levers in fender) c195 and it's a beast, I think you'll really like the size and power, just watch slopes if it still has series 1 kohler, only weak link in it.
  3. 48 inch mower deck bearings

    Thanks for all the help we'll get him all fixed up and have another horse addict. That's some great info Anglo hope it can help others in similar situations.
  4. Can't seem to stop these horses.

    Pics will be coming.
  5. Can't seem to stop these horses.

    I like that one, my brother just gave me 2 spray guns and a gallon of DuPont fill and sand primer yesterday so I think I'll be getting more of Terry's excellent decals soon.
  6. So I'm thinking this hobby may be an addiction, I seem to keep finding 's when not even looking I currently have a c195, c175 auto's, 308-8 and c161, now my "buddy" calls and says "I got you a c145 for $75.00 with 42 inch deck runs but needs some tlc bring it over saturday" did the same with c161 last week is he some sort of strange "drug" dealer? Regardless another coming this weekend.
  7. Hi all, I am looking for a good source for the bearings and size for a freind who just got a 520h with 48 inch deck model 78360 serial 5901723, looks like bearing is toro no. 10966. Any help would be great, it's his first horse and in great shape, free from his father in law who bought it new, includes all original paperwork, I'm so jealous . Thanks for any help. I know everyone loves pics so even though it's just a deck this is before cleaning up, even the decals are nice. Can't wait to see the tractor.
  8. C161 opinions

    Thanks for all the responses, already planned on buying the tractor post was to help convince the better half I couldn't pass such a deal and that only makes 4 of these amazing little horses. She keeps asking me how many we need and I tell her "too many is never enough."
  9. C161 opinions

    Well I'm going tomorrow to see it with my truck and ramps.
  10. C161 opinions

    I have a chance to buy a c161 very close to home from a friend of a friend who saw it in his garage and asked him if he wanted to sell it. He said it has been parked in garage for a long time it belonged to his father who was original owner, not running right now but did several years ago. He said his father mainly used it for hauling a small cart around 3 acre yard and had other tractor for mowing. Long story longer he said $200 my friend said offer $150 and he'll take it, are there any known issues to watch for, would it be worth $150 any thoughts.
  11. Will be getting that. Plan on light sandblast then acid etch primer and paint.
  12. started restore on c195 hood.
  13. Cheapest wheel horses

    C195 in front with cart were free, c175 in rear was $100.00, both need restored but strong runners.
  14. Got the lift cylinder mounts welded on for fel build.
  15. Drilled and pinned arms for my c195 loader project and checked level, slow going with my job always keeping me away.
