  1. Got a "new" C120 Wheelhorse

    I don't know what the proper name is but the rubber bushing that the shut off valve goes into. wish some days I had that excuse why I do the things I do eric j
  2. Will a Kohler M10 work well in a 314-H?

    forgot about the pulley swap, guess it was something I just took for granted and would have caught when doing the swap, should be able to find one from somebody on here or one of our vendor's on here. I ran a 48" deck on a 310-8 with out any big problems. they say a hydro takes about 2 hp to operate. put the kohler on for now and keep eye's and ear's open for a larger motor for on it eric j
  3. Will a Kohler M10 work well in a 314-H?

    it will handle it, but, the 48" deck will keep it maxed out if you don't keep up with the grass. Not sure how well it will handle the additional power loss of the power flow. what have you got to,loose maybe down the road you can find a 12 or 14 hp motor to stick on it. good luck eric j
  4. the ID tag is in the center of the fender pan right behind the shifter, I can see it in the pictures. most of the ones from that era faded so bad that you can't read then anymore. good buy eric j
  5. Got a "new" C120 Wheelhorse

    pull the bowl of the carb and clean it, that may take care of your problem without a complete tare down and cleaning of the carb. just started 2 314-8 that have been sitting for several years from as rotten as the gas was that was in them. I just drained and removed the bong and fuel shut off valve wiped out the tank and replaced the bong and shut off with new ones. removed the fuel line from tank to carb, cranked the motor over till i had fresh fuel through pump, dropped the bowl and cleaned and started them up. the carbs may need taken off and cleaned better but they run half decent now. eric j
  6. Got a "new" C120 Wheelhorse

    sorry I looked and didn't see the latch lever for the pan to flip. I'm use to the Auto not the 8 speed, when I looked closer I see the latch on the left side on the frame rail side panel. I have a 73 12-8 speed that's been on the back burner for way to many years, but it don't look god to get to any time soon, some day though, good luck and by the way it is a nice looking tractor eric j
  7. Got a "new" C120 Wheelhorse

    the flip seat, not flip fender pan tells me it should be a 76 or 77, 75 and older had the flip pan, but who knows what PO might have changed or modified, someone might have even mounted a cool hood ornament on it or swapped hoods, not that I have ever done such a thing eric j
  8. 312-8 Pulley Wheel Question

    I did something similar to a 89 416-8 I have, but did it the simple way, sorta. I did an engine transplant with an 18 hp onan from a 518-H. I simply used the Hydro engine pulley which is a lot larger. had a tough time to figure out what size belt to use, but once done it worked pretty good. I don't notice much difference in low range and only slight difference in high first. in high second a slight difference which is what I was looking for, when I'm mowing, you know 2nd to slow and 3rd to fast. Well 2 is just about right now, the big difference was in 3rd high. It is a lot faster by several MPH. Do't have a GPS to measure, but you better hold on lol eric j
  9. an easier and simple way is to remove one of the bolts on top of the trans that hold the gas tank bracket on eric j
  10. Wheel Horse Transportation

    I don't have the problem with pull on the 2 stage blower so that makes the difference, and I'm sure the hill and stones makes a difference too. Lifting the that hulking 2 stage blower takes weight off the back tires, that is why I do run chains on my blower tractors. if we get some snow this year I might get to try the single stage blower more. I do remember running a single stage blower on my C120's and having the problem of the blower pulling in on the side of the snow. eric j
  13. Kohler KT17 one cylinder

    I think I heard that not all Harley coils fire both at the same time, could this be possibly your problem ? just asking since you are having problem eric j

    I respectfully disagree with you Ed on the tires on a snowblower, I don't have a problem with turf tires on my snowblower tractors, but I do on plow tractors. if you angle a plow on a tractor it will push the front end in heavy wet snow. if the blower pushes you just lift the blower a little and put weight on the front end and the tractor will turn where you want it. Not saying that other tires wouldn't be a nice plus and help some, every little bit helps right ? but not totally necessary good luck eric j

    don't sound like a bad deal, I personally don't think you will go wrong at the price if you are capable of doing some of the repairs your self that need done. at that price you are almost buying the attachments and getting a free tractor. there has been several 2 stage blowers listed in my area in the $ 650.00 range and they have disappeared, so either they were sold or the add was pulled, this is just my opion and you know what they say about them they are like a body part that everybody has eric j
