  1. Coffee cups

    I am interested. Next Christmas would be right on time for a website.

    How did you find the right type of ball bearings? I would like to replace mine, but I haven't been confident enough to order. My Deck is a 48 inch from 1978.
  3. Ball Bearing and Belt Help

    Thank you for the responses! I have another deck I am not using, so I could steal a spindle off of it. But... I wanted to know what type of bearings I should order. Any suggestions? Is there a better name brand? Thanks!
  4. I have a C-101 with a 42 inch deck. The zerk on the center spindle was sheered off. I read some old posts, and it seems that I can replace it with sealed bearings and close the shorn zerk hole. This seems like the easiest solution to my problem. But... I can't determine the best bearings. This is an older deck before they starting using metric. In addition, I would like to replace the deck belt and the pto belt. How do I find the correct belts? Thank you!
  5. Purchased a Work Horse GT-1100 Today

    Great Deal. The chains and weights are worth 65 to the right person. If you can't get it to work, you should be able to part it out and more than recover your money.
  6. Super C in the making.

    I love the look and idea of this. Are you going to do anything with the grill? Do you plan on keeping it like a beast or dressing it up?
  7. What the life span for this engine?

    I want to piggy back on this question. How long will the engine last with rebuilds? Can they only be rebuilt once?
  8. Wheel horse / Toro

    Was toro really in competition with Wheel Horse? Did they have a Garden tractor before they bought Wheel Horse? It seems like Wheel Horse completed their lineup.
  9. Changing Mower Blades

    I want to know this too! Can someone reply to Tuna from 2013?
  10. traded my bucket truck earlier

    I bought a bucket truck 3 years ago, and it is going to be hard to give up. No more ladders for me. I love what you got for it though.
  11. I am trying to find all of the zerk fittings on my C-101, and two spots have me puzzled. The center spindle on the mower deck does not have a zerk. I looked at some images online, and I couldn't find a wheel horse mower deck with a clear zerk on the center spindle. Is it missine a zerk or is there another way to grease this part? A while ago, someone suggested greasing the steering column and shaft joints. I have been looking at it, and I can't find any zerks. How do I grease this? Is it necessary? Thanks in advance! Clark
  12. Kohler vs. Tecumseh

    I was recently offered a Sears St/16 at a fair price. I really like 70s era wheel horses, and the cast iron Kohler engines. If this Sears tractor had a Kohler, I would have already said yes! But... It has a 16hp Tecumseh. I don't even know if there are rebuild kits for this engine. Are these large Tecumsehs decent engines? How do they compare to the Kohlers that Wheel Horse was using during the same era? http://www.tractordata.com/lawn-tractors/001/3/9/1398-sears-st16.html
  13. Stuck in the Mud? What NOT to Do!

    That was scary. Thankful that I never would have thought of trying that.
  14. What should I pay ?

    3k would be a decent price. At 5k you can occasionally find a diesel yanmar or Kubota. I love Wheel horse's, but at 5k I would get a Kubota and save up $500 to get a nice c-series Wheel hHorse. I think the kubota would be a more functional with a front loader, and it would retain value better.
  15. Big Show idea?

    The fear of liability is often more dangerous than accidents. It's a bad habit to kill an idea with the fear of liability before the idea is flushed out and the risk is assessed. What activity is being proposed? What is the safest way to do that activity and still achieve the goal?
