  1. Finished the last mow of the season yesterday and am looking for a winter project to make this tractor better. One area that I'd like to investigate is a retrofit to the front roller wheels on my 60" deck. I'd like to ask if anyone has modified the front wheels to a caster rather than a "locked" wheel so that when the tractor is turned, the wheels follow the tractor rather than just stay pinned into the wheel mount. Has anyone done this to their deck? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  2. Looking for 522xi snow plow

    Trying to locate a front snow plow for a 522xi. 48" or 52". The 310-8 needs replaced and I'd like to add the plow on my 522xi. Located near CLE and work transport within reasonable distance. Thanks.
  3. 310-8 Starter Replacement

    Thanks for the tips. Bought one off ebay and it seems to work great.
  4. 310-8 Starter Replacement

    Have a 1986 310-8 Kohler K241s motor. Spec # 46863 and serial # 1610607383 and I need to replace the starter. Can someone provide the original part number for the starter or a suitable source for a replacement? It's 10 tooth, 7.25" overall length. Having problems finding a replacement that clearly identifies it as a WH OEM replacement. Thanks.
  5. 522xi PTO Problems?

    Great advice. Will follow your info. Many thanks.
  6. 522xi PTO Problems?

    Have a 1998 522xi Wheel Horse / Toro with the 60" deck. I'm pulling it out of the barn to prepare for mowing. Last year towards the end of the season. once hot, I'd turn off the blades and then, they wouldn't restart unless I let it cool down some. I thought the air gap could be the problem but whe I went to the service manual, it says the PTO is not adjustable and perform a voltage test on the coil. Should I look for anything beside this advice? Thanks.
  7. 1067 Voltage Regulator wiring help needed

    Paul: Got 4 terminals on the new VR (identical to original). The one you did not list above is "L" which is wired to the cig lighter and headlamp switch on my 1067. I did not wire that terminal up. The more detailed wiring diagram Garry provided showed the GEN wire connected to the armadature terminal on the SR so that's the way I completed the wiring. The reason I was trying to confirm the wiring is that the first VR and SG I installed (coincidently exactly the same way this new one finished out) worked for about an hour and then smoked out burning back wiring and trashing the new parts. I was able to get new parts from the vendor (after a 6 week back and forth) and from what I see and assume, one or both of the India / China parts failed scorching the system. Funny how Delco/Remy parts lasted almost 50 years and the cheaparse knockoffs probably will last 5. THANKS to all the folks that help with my questions!
  8. 1067 Voltage Regulator wiring help needed

    Here is a pic of how the SG and VR was wired prior to removal and replacement. The blue connector was attached to the Bat terminal and led down to the battery; the red connector was wired to the F terminal on the SG; to the left of the VR you can see a short wire that's connected to the terminal on the underside of the VR that is connected to the A terminal of the SG. This is the wire that I'm having questions about as the wiring diagram does not show this wire being connected to the SG from the VR. I have attached the pics that show the inside of the VR and the screw on the bottom. I want to make sure that this is wired correctly. Thanks for the aid and assistance. Tom
  9. All: Recently, I installed a new starter generator and voltage regulator in my 1067 to replace the original Delco parts. I have the wiring diagram for the unit, but I noticed a difference in how the V/R was wired into the tractor. When removing the old V/R, the three connections were as they appear in the wiring diagram, L to the lighter and then to the light switch; B to the battery; and F to the field (F) terminal on the starter generator. This matches the wiring diagram exactly. However, there was a short wire connected to a terminal on the underside of the V/R that connects to the armature (A) terminal on the starter generator that does not show up on the wiring diagram. Should I replace this short wire or is this a ground of some kind? I found some info on the Delco site that the "A" terminal on the V/R needs wired to the "A" on the starter generator. Is this terminal on the bottom of the V/R the "A" terminal that needs to have the wire to the "A" on the SG? I have double checked all my connections up to this point and this is perplexing to me.

  10. New for Me 522xi 60" mower questions

    Really EXCELLENT Garry!!!!! Much appreciated!!!! WV...spring tension. Thought maybe a rubber stop for the chute could rest on or some type could act as a vibration stop.
  11. New for Me 522xi 60" mower questions

    Uh oh....what good is this topic w/o pics? New Horse and my old Horses (and one stray Speedex) I love RED tractors..
  12. Picked up a 2000 522xi with a 60" (model 78395) deck. Test mowed with it today as part of my going over the tractor and I have the following questions I hope someone can help me with. 1) deck belt "rattles" against the deck when I engage the pto. I haven't removed the shroud over the spindle to check the idler pulley yet but could the idler spring tensioner be weak or mis-adjusted? 2) How have others addressed the discharge chute rattling against the deck top? Rubber button? Length of self adhesive foam/rubber gasket? 3) Where can I find an owners manual for the mower? Maybe I'm computer illiterate but I couldn't find accessory manual for any decks, blowers, etc Initial review on this tractor is it's a great tractor. Moving up from a 1067 and a 310-8. So far so good. Thanks in advance for any help. Tom
  13. 310-8 Won't move under load

    OK...so to speed things up and get my work tractor back to work, I contacted the Craigslist seller and went out and bought one of his UniDrives. Seller provided new rear hubs to fit the larger axles so I felt pretty good about the sale. Took it home, cleaned it up, changed the gear oil, and replaced all the fasteners that needed replaced. Seller said the trans came out of a working tractor and it seemed to be solid. Installed the C-160 tranny and found out near the end of the install that the drive belt shaft on the tranny was 1" long versus the 1.25" long shaft on my old unit. The 6" pulley was too wide to fit the installed used unit. Seller said that to his knowledge, the unit had not been rebuilt. Anyone hear of a 1" drive pulley on these UniDrives? Is there a pulley that is supposed to fit a 1" long shaft? Seller seemed genuinely surprised and offered to trade another unit for this one but now I'm a little skeptical on flipping out this unit for another from his inventory. Seller seems to be a serious WH collector and a nice guy, but maybe I should rebuild the old unit. Any suggestions or ideas?
  14. 310-8 Won't move under load

    Just a quick thought...Guy I know has a C-160 tranny (unknown year) with the 8 speed. Is this tranny a bolt in exchange with the one in my 1986 310-8? I have a 1967 1067 that I could swap out the tranny but to me, the 1067 and the 310 trannys don't seem to be "similar".
  15. 310-8 Won't move under load

    Nice repair to reform the keyway. Did you fix the axle this year and have you tried it out on the tractor.
