  1. snow equipment Buzz, anything to do with snow including snow mobiles, snowblowers, snow throwers and walk behind snow blowers I do believe. Hopefully I'll be able to bring my Trailblazer 7's including the one with the mower deck. eric j
  2. 1996 520

    an onan will fire the coil when the switch is turned off or on, it fires with an interruption to the 12 volts. if the motor wasn't running correct and dumping raw gas into the muffler when you turn the switch off and on causing the coil to fire it will back fire. I've had this happen to me, generally only after running tractor and restarting right away. Did you get it figured out yet, good luck eric j
  3. Can we discuss the C-171 again?

    the tractor was repainted that's why the marks around the decal. the steering wheel has been modified from what I see IN the picture. the hood is a C series becuase of the hood latch. This is not a black hood, also tell tale by the hole in the hood. eric j
  4. 2018 Show Dates?

  5. Has anyone heard from Mark Klinger?

    I remember talking to a guy with a low hr 420LSE, never knew his name that I could remember, lousy with remembering names any how, Seamed like a real nice guy. I also know Charlie Culley and most of the orginial board members. As far as I know he was never on the board of the WHCC show. I could be wrong, I will ask Charlie when I talk to him, if I remember and see what he has to say. eric j
  6. 227-5 cutting grass in the orchard

    did you measure the deck width, looks to me more like a 42" rear discharge deck, but I've been known to be wrong before on occasion eric j
  7. check and make sure you didn't knock the high low range shifter in neutral, don't ask me how I know this eric j
  8. why not combine the good motor and good trans on one and then you can put all of the best sheet metal on the good tractor eric j
  9. eric and shallowwatersailor eric j
  10. Another one

  11. C120 slippin'

    I only use wheel horses for everything, if I had a great big yard I might be forced to look at a Z turn or a sub compact tractor, but as it is I have just slightly less then 1/2 acre. my 60" deck is over kill for my yard lol eric j
  12. WH 310-8 W/ Kohler m10s Starter issue

    I have some tractors that won't start unless you back off just slightly on the key and hit " that sweet spot" in the switch, the other thing is to check all saftey switch/ My 310 wont start unless I slam the PTO lever back after sitting, not hard just turn PTO on and then off and it will crank over. Like said above check all grounds and battery connections first. good luck eric j
  13. I've also ran 48" decks with a 310-8. I've also ran my 60" deck under a 1990 416-H with the 6" front tires on it, they did rub some, but the tractor ran it, when I use my 520 with the 60" deck and try and go a little too fast through the tall thick stuff, usually only a weeks growth, it will either start to bog the motor or slip the PTO clutch and or the belt. I had a K341 16 HP kohler, and lets be honest, they don't sip gas any more then an onan. Before this blows up into a big argument over Kohler verse Onan, lets agree that most of what we say boils down to personal preference, based on first and second hand experience. It's No difference then Chevy verses Dodge verses Ford. They all made good and bad products, mostly good or they wouldn't have stayed in business as long as they did. We can argue maintenance issues or the lack there off and how forgiving a particular brand is. Each brand has it achilles heel, whether it's and onan valve seat, briggs twins valve seat or a kohler balance gears, the KT's blown rods. I have or have had at some point most of the twins that wheel horse put on their tractor, from the K532 in a D200 a KT17 in a 417-8, both of witch dad bought either new or almost new,a briggs twin opposed 16, and yes 16, 18, and 20 onans. My PERSONAL preference are the onan, but then again I'm a Dodge Man so that just goes to show what I know right eric j
  14. that means I can run an 80" deck with my 20 hp tractors eric j
  15. The Dynamic Duo

    that's what mine looked like eric j
