  1. Happy Birthday guys. Hope you had a great day.
  2. Decals

    That is not a standard decal for the 1977 B-100. It is for a hydro and the B-100 did not come as a hydro in 1977. @Vinylguy Terry, you need to pull that one from your B-100 8-Speed package.
  3. No. It comes in two parts, paint and activator. You measure out a 4:1 mix. Thin if necessary. I don't want to hijack this thread, so I'd suggest searching the forum for info already discussed about this subject.
  4. As long as you keep it sealed, the unmixed parts should last a couple of years. Mine did. But once mixed, you usually only have a window of a couple of hours to use it.
  5. If I had the chance to go back in time before I painted my first B-100, I would have investigated single-stage acrylic urethane paint rather than wasting time and money using aerosol cans. The labor used to paint, then remove all that junk paint and redo it correctly can't be calculated. Acrylics are extremely dangerous if not used correctly, but the end result is definitely worth the effort.
  6. 1973 wheel horse 8 4 speed tractor

    Take a look at my edited post above. The value? Not too much in the collectors world, but what is very unusual is that I've read that is has left-handed blades.

    I am going to guess that it is a 1971 CG7. Pictures courtesy of @Stretch44875 via his posting of March, 2014 http://www.wheelhorseforum.com/topic/46410-new-member-what-do-i-have/?do=findComment&comment=428618
  8. 1973 wheel horse 8 4 speed tractor

    It is not a garden tractor, but a lawn tractor. Pressed metal frame. Still trying to figure this out.
  9. 1973 wheel horse 8 4 speed tractor

    Definitely not a 1973 8 4 speed.
  10. It's always good to have a rebuild thread to follow during the long gloomy winter months. You are doing a great job and a fine service for this nice lady.
  11. Not to mention that there are literally 1000's of Wheel Horses out there running with a nice mix of oil and water in the transmission due to bad shifter boots. So I guess most any weight gear oil is better than that.
  12. This has always been a question in my mind, the use of 90W oil in the manual transmissions. When 10W40 works well in the hydros (transaxle as well as the transmission), why is it necessary to use 90W in a manual? After all, the owners manual for some of the 60's models stated the use of 40W in the transmission.
  13. 701 Double Belt Cover on eBay

    701 was the only model that had two belts from the starter to the flywheel pulley. The double thick cover for some reason is missing on many 701's. When a cover is found, they usually sell for big bucks.
  14. FYI, I just spotted a 701 double belt cover on eBay. Just a warning though, you must have DEEP pocket$.
  15. Key switch

    Try looking on the hood stand, near the top, under the dash housing.
