  1. Evansville, indiana show

    Jory: when you are selling a good Wheel Horse -you can almost always have a happy customer! My wife says maybe I can find some more of those! http://siamclub.hypermart.net/
  2. Where do you find tractors and implements?

    You have to get to know Wheel Horse owners! Meet and greet, go places, talk, ask questions, go to some shows, swap meets, etc. Once your phone has ten of twelve wheel horse guys and gals listed you will have more ways of finding parts, tractors and information that you even wanted !

  4. Mower decks spacers

    If you are looking for the older style nylon block glides for the tensioner contact D.J. Harrison -hcminnis on Red Square. He has them for sale. http://www.wheelhorseforum.com/profile/1864-hcminis/
  5. Sickle Bar Belt Replacement

    Re: Red Plastic Sickle Bar Mower Guard/Cover D.J. Harrison (hcminis on Red Square) has some for sale $15,00 plus $10.00 shipping. They are 48 inches long. http://www.wheelhorseforum.com/profile/1864-hcminis/ Very good material and small bungy cords can secure them. I even put Wheel Horse decals on mine. 7-1311 manual is on Red Square . 7-1312 parts list also. I don't think there is much difference between the two 50 inch sickle bar mower models Jim!
  6. Sickle Bar Belt Replacement

    Lowell made 12 sets of the Traveling Hook (and two bolt bracket for the tower to ride on) and the Lift Rod for Sickle Bar Mowers and I just happened to contact him after he finished doing that to ask about making me one. I traded him a 1054 front grill/cowling for the set. I spent last year and early this year working on this 7-1312 Sickle Bar Mower that was given to me and my brother. I bought all new bolts (mostly stainless steel from Bolt Depot) in a package based off the parts manual. I put new bearings, a new machine pin in the wobble box and several other parts I bought at various swap meets to put it all back together. I ordered the spring for the drive belt tensioner today after getting the mower all installed on the 854. WHX12: If you do a search on 7-1312 Sickle Bar Mowers I thinbk there are a couple threads of info on my rebuild.
  7. I thought you guys might want to see this

    No better tribute could be made for your Dad Tyler!
  8. 42" deck: 2 styles ?

    Like Garry Says the center support bar needs to be turned around. I have seen so many decks that have an egg shaped hole for the lift rod to go through from over use. Someone just turned this center bar around reassembling it. Glen: Plus: I always had my front bar with the U shaped cutout link (on both of your decks it is on the left side) on the right side of the deck when installing??? The pictures I posed are of 36 inch decks but should be same as 42 with the lift racks. Mower decks suppose to be mounted from right side of tractor.
  9. Sickle Bar Belt Replacement

    WHX12: Yes I used Bob Maynard's good information to rebuild my bearings on my 50 inch sickle bar mower . I used bronze bushings inserted in the repleacement bearings to rebuilds the 7-1312 Sickle Bar Mower I used on my 1964 Wheel Horse 854.

  14. 400 suburban project

    Looks very good but you can get a smaller heat shield in chrome that Harley Davidson makes for the softail bike online on Ebay. Not too expensive and contour works on RJ and Suburban exhaust.
  15. I will be there on August 23rd.
