  1. The wife said I need a hobby... C160 Auto

    Ya, called the local shop and they said between $75 and $90 depending on how far they need to go. Wasn't happy to find it but I can't exactly complain having paid nothing for it lol. Looks to me like someone had it bored over and then tried to use O/S rings on a Std. piston. I'll definitely be pulling the engine and checking the crank bc I have to basically strip the block for them to bore it. Well work has been crazy lately so I'm just now getting the head off the check the cylinder and valves. Let's just say that I'm in for more than I had hoped lol. Haven't mic'd the bore or piston yet but it looks like someone put the wrong piston in...

    Lol ya, I got it home finally and put it under the carport (wife isn't happy) but it's safe 😊
  4. K301 rebuild , balance gears keep or throw away?

    I tossed mine out of my k301. Rather not take the risk of them blowing up. Granted from what I've been told, it's mainly a concern for the souped up engines that see very high RPM's. Engine might vibrate a bit more without them but imho I'd rather deal with vibration over a hole in my block. My $.02

    Thanks for the replies, I should have taken pictures when I went over but it was pouring down outside and I wasn't even going to attempt to load it into the truck without a winch lol. I'm going to try to get it next Sunday with the trailer, then maybe I'll have some pics for you.

    Agreed, just more worried about finding out what all accessories came on that model. I know one of them had an hour meter on the cover panel that is missing but is there a way to find out which ones this particular tractor came with? And not angering the wife with the cost of the resto. Lol
  8. New to the forum here so forgive me if this question has been already. A while ago I was given an '87 John Deere 214 from my wife's grandpa and it started an interest in restoration. Lucky for me, it had been garage kept for the last 15 years. Long story short, a friend of mine got to talking and he said he has an old Wheel Horse C-160 Automatic that he was going to scrap. He said if I can come get it, I can have it for free. Seems like the tractor is mostly complete other than the headlight assy., gas tank, and a cover in the center where the shifter would go on the 8-speed models. Not sure of the year but is has hydraulic lift 48" deck (some rusted spots) and seems to be in decent shape for being outside for the last 5 years. My main question is "does anyone have any pictures I can compare to so I can see what else is missing?" Trying to figure out if it's worth my time. Thanks for the help!
