  1. I like that Brandon. Only from the mind of an engineer. "Viscous coupling"
  2. The first thing I would do is a good transmission flush. Drain it, fill it with diesel or kerosene, run it a few times around the yard, drain it again, and refill with new transmission oil. Remember to lift the front end to get all the oil/fluid over the hump. It it still does it, set the parking brake when you are not on it and have the engine running.
  3. You are correct. You are up Dennis.
  4. Keeping it in the Wheel Horse family, besides tractors and mowers, what other mode of ride-on transportation did Wheel Horse sell ? I know many of you know this, but there are some newbies who may not be aware.
  5. They are an assembly. I could take it apart but I'd rather not. PM sent.
  6. Okay, so I have one of each. They are equipped with the shift-fork, however, I don't know which is which. So I'm going to need a little help. Is the 5615 A or B? It's been 4 years since I stripped these parts out of the transmission.
  7. If it's the same as the B-80 4-Speed, I should have one. Part #5615. I will check in a little while and get back to you.
  8. I have never see that on the parts list either. I guess that it was included as part of the "box assy"
  9. From my vast wasteland of trivial knowledge, I submit this. I have been told that these carts have in fact been produced since 1962. If you look at the file below, then scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will see the date that the parts list was printed. Even though the file is titled 1964-1967, the date of printing does not agree. Just sayin'
  10. I buy my stainless nuts and bolts from boltdepot.com. Good prices, and you can purchase as little as 1 single item. No packs of ten and such.
  11. Just my 2 cents. The 8 HP 4-speed is just the no-name version of the first B-80's. Came out in '73 during the transition period prior to AMC taking over ownership in '74. The 8 hp is a cool little gas sipper with enough power to do many tasks. Having said that, I agree that the price is too high. I purchased two 1974/75 B-80's four years ago for a total of $300.00.
  12. Chicken eyelids...one upper, one lower, and a membrane that goes vertically. The upper and lower are open most of the day, and the third one keeps the eye moist. The three eyelid question was from Trivial Pursuit. I don't remember what edition, but it's one question and answer that has stuck in my head for decades. My grandmother used to raise chickens. You'd think that she would have taught me that, but no, I spent my time shoveling chicken s**t and gathering eggs.
  13. I used to use the Valspar Restoration Series in the aerosol cans for touch-up. It was a totally acceptable paint, and the color IH Red was nice. Dried reasonably fast, and cured hard. Then when it was no longer available, I did an experiment with the Majic brand from TSC that replaced it. I sprayed it on a properly prepared and primed piece of steel, allowed 6 hours to dry as instructed. It never did. I could scrape it off with my fingernail. Even after 24 hours it was still soft and I could press my fingernail into it. My recommendation is to avoid Majic paint.
