  1. Has anyone heard from Mark Klinger?

    That name doesn't sound familiar to me at all. I haven't been to the show since 2003.
  2. He may have had a sickle bar mower at one time. On a Charger you remove the PTO and use a small pulley that comes with the sickle. The PTO is on the sickle frame and uses this pedal set-up.
  3. Biggest Tractor

    I would say the D-200 and RS-83 (Ride-Away Senior) were the largest tractors that Pond / Wheel Horse actually produced. The D-250 is a rebadged German Gutbrod tractor sold by Wheel Horse, but not manufactured by them.
  4. wanted: good used or NOS Kohler breakerless ignition parts

    Thank you for the response. Please let me know your price for each and i can pay you via PayPal or postal money order, whichever you prefer!
  5. Looking for either good used or NOS Kohler K-series breakerless ignition coil and trigger. please contact me via personal message if you have these with price. Thank you!
  6. Can you identify this Wheel Horse?

    Unless the frame and hood have swapped out, that is a pre-1970 tractor. It is a long frame tractor meaning it was made with that frame/hood combination, and with full length running boards from 1968-1969. The bulk of this tractor is either a 1968 or 1969 Charger or Electro 12. Can't quite make out the decal on the fuel tank housing.
  7. 37" deck?

    I have a 37 inch deck on a 520-HC. With the guage wheels set at lower cutting heights, the right guage wheel will rub the rear tire when the deck is raised to transport position. This can be aleviated by using a narrower guage wheel with a spacer or narrower rear tires. This is the only issue with using the 37 inch deck on a 520 with a "swept" front axle.
  8. Elmer Pond and Stow Tractor

    You probably mean Shaw Tractor Co.
  9. What's up with this ranger

    Not that it couldn't have been replaced, but if memory serves, that hood decal was only used in 1969 (last year before the vertical shaft/fiberglass Lawn Ranger).
  10. RJ-35 survivor

    55 RJ-35 came with a Clinton 1200 152 spec. motor. Do a search on this site and you will find posts discussing the specifics of this engine.
  11. All 1961 701 and 551 tractors had the two piece transmission while the 401 retained the three piece trans.
  12. unknown front bracket

    I have honestly never seen that bracket before, but the quality and matching patina with the tractor is very interesting. Perhaps some allied attachment mounting bracket.
  13. Wheel horse 754

    There was a document sent out to the dealers in a limited geographical area regarding this tractor. It stated the number of the tractors available.
  14. Kholer k91

    Original engine for a 1961 551 is a Lauson H55D spec. # 2113. The 1960 550 used a Lauson H55B spec. # 1170.
  15. Side discharge deck for Lawn Ranger?

    No....all Lawn Rangers, until the vertical shaft versions, came with a rear discharge deck.
