  1. Larger Fromt tires

    I have that size on a 312 with 10/23/12 on the rear-no problems
  2. The 418 C is alive!

    Good deal on a great tractor. I'm sure you'll have it looking sweet soon.
  3. Steering wheel

    Did you ever get a steering wheel?
  4. 1975 Wheelhorse C-100 Restoration

    Nice work Jon! Keep us posted on your progress.
  5. 310-8 and a 36" SD deck

    Karl, are you sure it's not a 37" deck? I thought the 36" decks were only on the older horses. Just curious.
  6. Wheel 416-8

    Of course you can always offer $200 and maybe get an even better deal!
  7. western N.Y. suppliers/ enthusiast

    I'm in Rochester. Sorry, you're a little too late-I recently sold a couple. There are quite a few on craigslist around here but right now seem to be overpriced or junk. Keep looking, something will turn up. Also check the classifieds here. good luck
  8. C-160 with a Briggs

    I believe some of the '74s had Teckys in them. Buy it, change the plug, clean the carb and you'll probably be happy with it. It looks pretty well cared for.
  9. My WH 1257

    That's a Beauty!!!!!!
  10. Opinions needed on this 314-H

    You said it, "it's a great deal". Tractor alone is well worth more than that. I'm sure it's a 42" deck with the blower unit and that is great for leaves as well as grass. I have a 314-8 and I love it, plenty of power and not bad on gas. Run-don't walk to get that gem!
  11. Bagger or no bagger

    I have a 314-8 with a bagger and the 37" deck and it works great for leaves. The one you're looking at probably has a 42" deck, therefore the blower. If you don't like raking leaves, it's definetly the way to go.
  12. I'd jump all over that, even if I didn't need it! And no, your 42" deck won't fit. XI series attachments mount differently than 300-500 series.
  13. MId 90's 416-8 how much..

    You made a fair offer imo, considering all it needs and being non-running. I'd keep looking unless that model is a must have for you. I have an older (85 or 86) 416-8 with the Kohler in decent shape and running well that I'd sell for what they want.
  14. Gear shift set screw

    It's called the "dog point" set screw-part #1239. You can grind down a regular screw to make one if you can't fine one. Jack"s small engines has them or maybe your local toro dealer.
  15. I use the regular twin bagger with 37" deck and the blades with the uplift ends and it does a great job. Of course it works better if the leaves are dry but a little damp is ok.
