  1. As posted in the "What have you done"... thread, I got the VR, Ign switch and volt gauge done. Thank you to those posting here and also @BOB ELLISON for supplying his schematic. As a vendor FYI for you.... I found the best price and fast shipping services from for the VR and switch.
  2. What have you done on your WH today?

    Installed a new voltage regulator, proper key switch (to replace an incorrect one), and replaced ammeter with a volt gauge. Rewired back to factory specs except adding volt gauge. I put that to the " I " terminal so I can see voltage while in "start" position.
  3. Thank you for offering Bob but I'll use your diagram just as it is. I'm going to wire my lights that way as well. I'm using LEDs but I figure it's worth the cheap insurance.
  4. I'm installing the proper ignition switch and rewiring some. I'd love to see a proper schematic drawing that is a little better than the one from a 74 B80 Factory Sketch. It's a bit vague. @BOB ELLISON, you have one for a c-160 that you redid I think.?
  5. Whats your Winter Project

    Lemme know when you're headed north
  6. What have you done on your WH today?

    @Lane Ranger Nice looking decals !
  7. Man oh man...... I hope to someday have the leather bound set. Here's most of mine.... with a couple others..... I have maybe a little over half... ?
  8. Keeping in mind I've never done the work myself. Here's what I would be asking. How much cost would I have into the tubes? Would that cost be worth the insurance in my mind of having the tubes dry-rotted as opposed to my tires being dry-rotted? I feel like I probably would put the tubes in if it was not a lot of extra work.
  9. Ed, and everyone else for that matter. Never apologize for a long post. Those of us that love to read them will be very happy. Those of us that don't like long posts will skip over it and still be happy. Personally, I like 'em..... I'm a HHUUGGE Louis Lamour fan. ... I'll write more later when I have time
  10. Excellent writeup Glenn. Well said. Another vote for Rimguard here. @HorseHead1089, I'm fairly new to the WH addiction but been around tractors awhile. I haven't heard of a way to weight a machine I like better. Part of my reason is cost. I can get beet juice INSTALLED for only 50 cents a gallon more than buying the others then doing the messy work.....
  11. Dolmar Chainsaw

    I have a 1987 Dolmar 116si. Absolutely love the power of that Beast for getting through a log. Haven't used it for a year or so because the chain brake cover is melted internally. .. (My fault ) Sometime or other I'll get around to fixing it. Can't believe the strength whenever I use it.
  12. Converting a 3 season camper to a 4 season

    Peru, NY to ? saayy... Jacksonville, FL... 18 hours. Could be a tough commute.
  13. Thank you Everyone for contributing to this post.... I'll read through them in the next couple days when I can. KEEP 'EM COMIN'
