  1. 520H shuts off and 60" deck issues

    this is where the fuse block used to be (part# 67-7160). I'd replace the fuse block.
  2. 312-8 pricing

    Thanks. The asking price is in line with the numbers above.
  3. 312-8 pricing

    I've come across a garage kept, very low hour 312-8, with a 42" deck and a cart. All very clean. What is a fair price for each; tractor, deck and cart?
  4. 341 kohler acr

    So could you check compression by spinning flywheel backwards?
  5. 341 kohler acr

    Will the ACR function if you spin the crank backwards?
  6. 1975 wheel horse hydrostatic 14 horse

    Check the white writing on the left floorboard in first and third photo
  7. Cab LED Lights

    Thanks. This is what I was looking for.
  8. Does anyone have a specific make and model of LED pod or light bar that they would recommend based on first hand experience? This would be for a snow cab. I'm not looking for Rigid ($$$) quality, maybe $30-$50 price range.
  9. PTO Clutch Pressure

    Is there a procedure for setting the proper spring force on the PTO clutch? I'm interested in both a 520H and a C161, if the difference in mechanism drives a different procedure.
  10. Thanks Here's a link to the manual on another site: http://www.wfmfiles.com/download/Tecumseh-Peerless_Motion_Drive_System_-_Transmissions_&_Differentials(691218).pdf
  11. Thanks Kurt, Do you have a link to the manual? I've only found the parts list.
  12. How much gear oil does the right angle gear box in a two stage blower take? (79361 blower / peerless 1000-014 gearbox). Is this a' turn it up on end and fill to the top' deal, or 'leave horizontal and fill to drain plug deal?' (maybe 5/16" depth). Manuals are silent on this, or I have reading comprehension challenges. http://www.wheelhorseforum.com/files/file/4093-gearbox-snowthrower-peerless-1000-014-iplpdf/ http://www.wheelhorseforum.com/files/file/2563-snowthrower-44in-1996-1998-2-stage-79361-om-ipl-snpdf/
  13. There is a 520H transaxle for sale in north west Connecticut crag's list.
  14. Loaded tires

    I fit 12 gallons between front and rear.
  15. Loaded tires

    I've got a new to me C-161 (hydrostatic). It has rear cast iron wheel weights that I estimate to be around 150 lbs combined based on external dimensions. Primary use will be snow clearing, pushing a 54" plow. Is there any reason I should not also load the tires? It currently has ag tires. I don't plan to add chains until I see how it does without. I'm also working on a 520h w/ two stage blower for deep stuff. So the 161 would be more for light snow or slushy cleanup.
