  1. WH 516-H

    Wasn’t the 312A with the Easton 700? others will chime in
  2. WH 516-H

    518,516 didn’t come with hydro lift. Just the manual lift. They did have the weaker Eaton 700. The 520-H and 520-HC of that model year had the stronger Eaton 1100 with hydro lift
  3. Deck attachment, 520H Wheelhorse

    The throttle issue is common you will need to get behind the “Dash” plate. The rivet loosens up i removed the throttle knob with a claw back a hammer and 2x4 wood. Unscrew the throttle from the dash. I just squeezed the rivet with channel locks. Some preen (beat on it) with a hammer. Some drill out the riveting and put a nut and bolt. Better than the usual bungee cord throttle engineering you see. Welcome to RS
  4. I will be the tree hugger today: try to minimize oil, antifreeze,gas etc run off most car wash places forbid it. down the drain and we then forget about where it goes but it’s going into our water source and our trout etc i bring all my drained fluids to local shop to recycle ♻️

    Oh my!! ah, hmmmm?!? 😏 under WH tractors or “other brands” ?
  7. Put on new ignition switch

    Pull the connection off the back of the ignition switch and inspect: a lot of times it’s just cruddy connections.
  8. Not worth $500 note the air cleaner cover lying on the floor in the first picture. It goes inside the pretty chrome air cleaner cover to actually cover the air cleaner. Possible carburetor mice in there if you got it as an extra 520 parts rig for cheaper it might be ok a quick hose down does not equate to NOS. Keep looking
  9. Only used on 520 dont need it for 416
  10. Picking up two today

    Wonder what’s with the throttle “limiting screw”? didnt want to redline it I guess😎
  11. Picking up two today

  12. Gas

  13. New shop lights

    Has anyone tried the LED replacement bulbs in the old fluorescent fixtures? looks like your old fluorescent light fixtures have to be the older style magnetic versus a new were electric Ballasts

    Caleb, Please wear the shoulder seatbelt, in addition to the lap belts, in your Dad's GTO! Prior to 1968, the shoulder seat belt (usually separate from the lap belt until the 70's) was an option for most cars. For 1968, it was mandatory to have both. lap belts are better than nothing but cause head injuries and hip dislocations. My 67 Camaro only has lap belts and I will upgrade to after market Morris 3 point seat belts
  15. Now we know where the WH designers came up with the final hood look!
