Valves ground and gapped, heads decarboned and new gaskets. it does have some rust on the top back of the hood and both guards have some and the crome on the air cleaner cover is starting to peel. Tires hold air the fronts do have a little cracking, didnt see any on the rears Seat has no cracks. Hour meter does NOT function any ?s PM me
  6. I bought a 06 last year and love this thing. you are right it seems the post 2010 are bringing good money. As for this one if it checks out like you said 12500 is high ya but your current one has 300K and with only 28K on it you have another 18 years before you have to start looking again. Yup its worth it jmop

    Sending you a PM

    The PTO style in the firs pic, which is the old stye, will work when adjusted correctly and is easy to install. As for the carb, only one off a 14 or .16 hp engine will work correctly. and it should have 3 screws to mount the air cleaner backer plate. To determine if your carb is correct look inside from the air cleaner end there should be the number 30 stamped into the ventrua Looks like you the parts needed to get this old beast at least fired up. FYI, if the electric clutch switch is still functioning it has some value.

    What you have I believe IF the engine is original is a 1973 16 auto. That type of hydro control is the give away as it was only used in 1973 and the seat pan also. I don't think the 16hp is original because it has manual lift I have never seen a 16hp auto or a C160 auto without, its most likely a 12 or 10 auto originally. From 1973 and up it should have 3 safeties , one for the PTO control lever, seat and the brake pedal. I would not try to start as not only all throttle control linkage is missing but the governor linkage is missing also and could over rev the engine and scatter it.

  13. Nice looking GT you have there Bad news is not only is the plow blade wrong but the plow frame is for a C/300/400 series tractor. the correct frame is similar the D/ C195 series tractors, its longer and wider. Finding the correct plow will not be easy. Now not to say that frame won't work but you will only be able to use the 42" wide plow blade and it will still hit the tires when angling the blade and be skinnier the the width of the tractor when angled, unless you put the 520 extension kit on it and the angle handle still wont be right. I used a C/300/400 series plow on mine while it worked great when straight, it was a pain when angling/ angled.
  14. wheel horse 516h question ?

    first i would advise NOT using brake clean it is highly flameable and explosive the surging is a normal problem with the onans, and almost all the time is not a governor problem but a dirty carb or fuel problem make sure your fuel lines are in good shape and install a new fuel filter, and thoroughly clean the carb again using a good carb cleaner, any other solvent will harm the gaskets and seals sometimes running a gas additive will solve the issue also
  15. wheel horse 516h question ?

    The Onan and Kohler regs are the same wiring configuration. In a pinch if I don’t have a spare onan reg I’ll put in the kohler spec part. The only diff is the casing. Heck it’ll even bolt right up As to running without, yes you can, without the reg in place the power has nowhere to go. If your old one was not supplying any voltage you can put it back in or Just tape up the connector good so it doesn’t arc onto the sheet metal.
