  1. Oil Level

    Thank You for the input. I don't normally wipe the Oil and reinsert. I've been checking Oil in all types of engines my whole life ( 37 years Heavy Equipment Operator ) I had never seen oil high on the Dipstick like that. I thought maybe a breather or something else was plugged.
  2. Oil Level

    I recently purchased a 1988 518-H. When I check the Oil level on a cold motor it is very high, If I bump the ignition ( without starting ) it goes to the normal level. Any Ideas
  3. I need some Input

    I recently purchased a 518-H with the Eaton 700. I am not happy with the Hydro. I know I can get a 1100 and change it. My question is . A 414-8 recently came up for sale cheap with a bad Motor, I was wondering if with the 2 tractors I could build a 518-8. My property is very hilly. some spots 15 degree. I know the 8 speed would be fine on the hills. The Onnan on the 518 runs flawlessly. I s it possible to put the 8 speed in .
  4. 518 Purchase

    I just bought a 518-H without realizing about the Eaton 700. I talked to a retired Wheel Horse Dealer and he said put Mobil 1 15 - 50 Synthetic oil in. It worked great It is now climbing the steep hill in my backyard even Hot. I paid $500 for mine With a 48" Deck,48" Plow, Wheel Weights and New Chains, With a Cart.

  7. I need expert Advice

    2 Weeks ago I purchased a 518-H, It has the Eaton 700 Transaxle. If I change it out to a Eaton 1100 will there be a huge difference. I've been running a 310-8 for 10 years. My property is very Hilly some spots 12 to 15 degrees. The 310 handles the Hills well. My Driveway is the same grade 1000' long. The 310 has plowed and graded it well. In your opinions with a Tranny swap will the 518 do as well. I could always sell it and find a 4 or 500 series with an 8 sp
  8. I'M new

    New member here. Springwater NY I have owned my 310-8 for about 10 years, It's tough and very reliable. Last weekend I bought the 518-H. When I got it home it didn't seem to have the ability to climb the hill in my back yard. About a 15 degree slope. I found out ( A little Late ) Wheel Horse used 2 different Transaxles in these. Apparently I got the Eaton 700. Thru your sight and a very helpful Retired Wheel Horse dealer I changed the oil to a Synthetic. Seems 100% better. I am looking to replace Transaxle with a Eaton 1100.No rush. I do believe I got a great deal even with the 700 Tranny. Tractor with weights and chains, 48" side discharge ,42 Rear Discharge,48" Plow and a cart. $550 The Tractor needs some work and a Paint job, But it runs well and mows great. Thanks for the help and keep up the good work .
