  1. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    I was thinking the same, and I really liked the assembly line for painting! 👍
  2. Clutch Springs or custom spring setups info please

    Last season we smoked a belt on the Raider 12. Installed a new spring from my local dealer and everything has been fine. We are thinking of building a 14hp full out performance engine. I am thinking to add some more spring pressure to keep the belt from slipping with the added horse power. I have read some guys installed an extra spring but I haven't seen where it is located. I didn't keep the package from the spring I got but it could have been the same part number you suggested.
  3. I searched the site and found some good older threads but no pictures. Pictures help me. lol Does anyone have experience with a heavier clutch spring, if so item number please. Another thought I have been having and discovered some have done is add another spring for tension. If anyone has success with these please send pictures.
  4. DoublE Twins pulling

    Great looking tractors!
  5. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    Made it to the first pull of the season with the GT-1100. Grandpa ended up placing second. Thanks for all the help guys!
  6. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    I feel your pain. lol That was my entire project with this GT-1100.
  7. My Restored 101C

    Nice job! It looks showroom fresh.
  8. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    My neighbor and I welded up the Wheelie bars and the front weight bar. I started priming the tins a few days ago. Hopefully the paint comes in tomorrow and I can get painting. She’s starting to look like something.
  9. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    More progress on the Work Horse pulling tractor. I got the wheelie bars mocked up and ready to weld and paint tomorrow. Hopefully by the end of the week I can get the body work painted.

    Got the pulling hitch all welded up. Crunch time now. Only 2 weeks until the first pull.
  11. Thanks guys for all the help. This morning I caved in and brought the carburetor to a professional. The carb still had a slight fuel leak and that linkage issue. The owners father was a huge Wheelhorse guy. He fixed the fuel leak and showed me why it wasn’t working properly. One of the levers on the plate was behind the linkage that would press on the choke. This machine had so many bent pieces I didn’t know what was supposed to be bent or straight. Lol In the end it lives. I just got done tuning by ear and took it for a ride. Thanks again! Now on to make it look presentable, add the pulling hitch, wheelie bars and weight. 13705E55-A2ED-4068-9795-52032A0604E6.MOV
  12. Yes you are correct 252417-0664-01 date code is 84022911
  13. Thank you Garry for the file but this one doesn’t have that choke plate that my tractor has. Looks like the smaller 8hp have a similar plate but not as large as this. I have been looking at videos, diagrams and pictures for days. This set up must not have been used for to long seeing that I haven’t found any other than a couple exploded views.
  14. Thank you Howie for the suggestion. I did exactly that. It was off just a bit but now it is set end tightened. I am off from work today. I am going to work on it until I get it. This machine has been tough since day one. The previous own did really bad back yard mechanical work to this machine.
  15. Thank you for the help. No problem. It’s icing here too now. It was freezing working in the garage today and yesterday was 70’s. Crazy weather. Yes I took the carb off for rebuild. I was thinking the previous owner might have done something to the governor also. It was off just a bit. I reset it and is on tight now. There are two holes on the governor, one for the throttle linkage and the other for the spring. I think I have them in the correct spots. That’s where I’m stumped. This machine was apart when I got it. I haven’t been able to find a picture of how it’s supposed to look together. I have seen parts exploded views so I knew what I needed to make it complete but orientation is where I may be mixing up.
