  1. Hey TT, I have a 520 H with a 48" deck. This crazy thing has been leaving skip lines in the grass. I had this deck off yesterday, had a couple cancer spots plated, I put brand new factory blades on this animal, (AGAIN...)it STILL lets skip lines, I've about had it. what is the fix??? I'm just about due to take a come-along around the three mandrels and draw them together!!!




  2. 633 ??

    I'm not so sure that's ever been proven as being a constant. I do know there were problems with intake manifolds breaking and I believe the Kohler "fix" was to install the standard side draft Carter "N" & matching governor lever & link in place of the updraft Tillotson. Earliest versions did have a Fairbanks-Morse recoil vs. the Kohler recoil found on the later models.
  3. K-161 Recoil Starter

    Don't use any lube on the "brake" parts and make sure to apply a little blue thread locker to the center screw once you're sure everything works correctly. You'll have to hold the center screw from turning while pulling the rope & observing the pawl operation. Don't overtighten the center screw and do not pull the rope again until the thread locker has time to set. If the center screw loosens, the friction required to "kick out" the pawls will decrease. The pawls won't extend unless you quickly jerk the rope ~ and even that technique is not reliable. (and it makes you look like a rookie - LOL) The cast aluminum 4 bolt recoil found on the Tecumseh / Lauson engines in the 550/551/502/etc. models are getting tough to find replacement parts for.
  4. 520HC vs. 520H Transmissions

    The next two mating gears are also different.
  5. Attach-a-Matic?

    It's been a while since I tried, but I believe the latch pieces will hit the tie rods and/or their attachment piece at the front of the lower steering shaft on the short frame tractors. A 1267 is a long frame, so there's no interference.

  7. Happy Birthday Terry (TT)

    Thanks gang! Annual member / guest tournament going on at work so I spent from 5AM to 8PM at the country club / golf course ~ and not in a fun way either! Sure is nice to come home, sit down, and read bunches of happy birthday wishes. I thought everyone forgot about me by now.
  8. Happy Birthday Terry, hope it's the best one ever.     :occasion-birthdaymulticolor:

  9. Help ID RJ-35...

    That 35 had part of a Wisconsin engine and a 3 speed transmission mounted in front of the seat when I got it, The picture I saved from the classified ad:
  10. What Wheel Horses do you regret selling?

    Both of these are now in great hands:
  11. Serial Numbers

    neighbor! Identification information would have been on a decal found on the side of the hoodstand below the PTO engagement lever. The numbers fade over time to the point of disappearing in some cases. The Pewter WorkHorse series was only available in 1982, 83, & 84 and the product numbers ending in "00" denote 1984. Numbers ended in the mower deck size in 1982 & 1983 because the mower was included with the tractor purchase.
  12. What's In Your Mirror?

    Thanks Brian! I'm guessing this is why it has the auxiliary feed bag: The tractor & mower deck are both 1994 and the blower is a 1993. 710 hours on the tractor and it needs some TLC ~ especially in the wiring department.
  13. What's In Your Mirror?

    I was told about this incoming 520H way back in early July by the owner of the dealership where it was to be traded-in. It took this long to get things worked out, but it all came together last Saturday.

    Installing a new cross shaft is probably the correct answer, but making an attempt to straighten the current part would be something I'd try. Any damage to the ID of the brass bushing/nut will cause oil seepage, so you'll want to be as gentle as possible. if all else fails, the shaft on the 10 - 16hp K & M series engines can be changed without major disassembly. You'll need an oil pan gasket, a few long skinny screwdrivers, possibly a telescopic magnet, a good light, and a whole lotta patience.
  15. valve c clip

    I can't say I recognize that as being anything that I've seen behind the breather. I've never dissected a rotator so I can't say that it's part of one. It shouldn't be laying in there loose no matter what. I'll have to see if I can find a rotator and do a little research.
