  1. LED lights with turn signal flasher

    Awesome, thank you!!
  2. I've been kicking around the idea of adding two Amber led lights to the front, and two to the back of my Commando 8. I would like to have them flash on and off. Does anyone know if a standard turn signal flasher will work? Or, do I need a different flasher unit?
  3. Snowplowing with my 1968 Commando 8

    Achto, I'm North of you, up in Wausau Wisconsin.
  4. Hi Patrick, here is what I have for measurements. This is the original spacer. It hope it helps.
  5. Snowplowing with my 1968 Commando 8

    Where are you located?
  6. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    Here is a picture. It's basically a trailer tire. Thanks for the suggestions.
  7. Snowplowing with my 1968 Commando 8

    Yes indeed! My neighbors are surprised by it's capabilities.
  8. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    I had this happen while I was out plowing. Original Wheel Horse tire. 1968 Commando 8 Fleet Farm has them for $50.00 a piece. Any other suggestions?
  9. Delco remy voltage regulator

    I just replaced the ignition switch. It is back running again.
  10. Delco remy voltage regulator

    Hello everyone, it's me again. I went to start my tractor. It barely turned over. Then, when I tried it again, it wouldn't turn over at all. I checked the connections. Everything is good I took out my voltmeter, and I have power going into the voltage regulator, but not going out. If I push down on the copper contact, with the key on (see picture) the engine will turn over. My Dad and I looked it over. We cannot see anything physically wrong. My question is, if I start the tractor by pushing on the copper contact, will I do any harm by running the tractor this way?
  11. Hi Patrick, once I get home, I'll get the measurements.
  12. 1968 Kohler 8 hp muffler

    I'll definitely be careful when I do remove it. I've heard horror stories.
  13. 1968 Kohler 8 hp muffler

    I would like to replace the muffler on my 1968 Kohler 8 hp engine. It is about 3/4" water pipe. Then, the muffler itself is about a five inch diameter. I am guessing that it is the original muffler. Any suggestions on a replacement? I would like to have it as quiet as possible. The old one is really rusty. I going to have to get some penetrating oil and a couple of pipe wrenches to get it off. Thank you. P.S. I really like the Christmas lights at the top of the page!! 🌲 🎅

    Oh, okay. If it were American made, I'd get one.
