  1. Raider 12 Transmission for project

    One more question... I was thinking of making this one a three seater. See vid of one above. Can the axles handle that much weight? With the heavy engine in front, the front end is plenty heavy enough.. just concerned about axles....
  2. Raider 12 Transmission for project

    Okie Dokie. Thanks guys. Good news. Sounds like its strong enough and will work. I will give it a good inspection and cleaning. I will get to working on it in next couple months and show yall pics of progress.
  3. Hi all, A couple years back I put a fairmont railcar engine on a wheel horse C 141 frame to make a ride for hit miss engine shows. It's an eight speed hi lo So, I got another fairmont engine and am gonna make another ride. So I found a Raider 12 carcass rolling frame stripped down and parted out with an 8 speed trans. As I look online I see that these had a ten pinion no slip set up that people say are weaker? Should I proceed with frame I have? Or do I need to find a stronger trans? The set up is basically a ride for shows that has a double seat for two people heres a link to the first one I built so you can get an idea of what I am building
  4. B80 tiller.

    I took off belll. It's less than 1/4 it's about an 1/8. Rivets are basically level with the material. Surface is rubbery and smooth but not slick. Tiller gives jt a work out more than the deck did. Deck didn't make it slip. My new tiller does.
  5. B80 tiller.

    I have the trunnion adjusted all the way. Still slips. The clutch facing is about a 1/4 inch thick. Is this too wore
  6. B80 tiller.

    With yalls help I got the right pulleys in and got it all together. Only problem is now that the clutch slips. It is adjusted as tight as it will go. It's a 1975 b80. 8hp kohler. It only has rubber ring rivited to engine side of clutch. Outside pulley side is metal. Does it sound like I need a new clutch. ? The 139 belt is tight but works great. Just the clutch slips. Any ideas on how I can fabricate one buy one or am I missing a part or extra ring. Tke rubber ring that's on it (riveted to engine side ) is about the width of less than 1/4 inch.

  11. Tiller question

    Ok. I found a tiller that will work and with it comes the bracket to hook it to back and the idler assembly for the belt. The only thing the idler assembly is missing is the spring and the pulleys and the guard. I can fab up a belt guard and buy a spring and pulleys. My questions is what size are the two pulleys.... the smaller flat and the bigger v ...? Thanks for all your help y'all

  14. brake material and slipping hub

    Hi all, 1. Working on my B 80. The belt like material slipped out of the brake mechanism the other day. Can't find it to glue back in. Any ideas on what to use for brake material or anyone have some they would sell? 2. Also, I put a new hub on last year. Had to destroy the one on it to get the transmission apart. Seized real bad. This new hub no matter how hard I tighten it slips on the axle. I tighten it down and its fine for a while and slips. I got another spare one I am gonna put on. Hopefully it will "grab" better. Even thought of drying off all oil and using a file to "rough up" the axle. Anybody ever had this happen and know a solution? 3. Just to update,, as I have posted before been looking for rims and tires for the b 80. . I put a set of 23x10.50 x 12s on it I found at a local shop pretty cheap. BIG, but look real nice on it. THanks for all the help and advice! Jamie
  15. Tires B80

    The 22.5-7.50-12 tires seem difficult to find. What other sizes would work well with a B-80 Wheel Horse? I got one good rim with a good tire of 22.5-7.50-12 and I guess I can salvage the other rusted rim with some paint and JB weld to a rusted spot and use a tube. If I have too, I will get two back matching tires of a diifferent easier to find size. Just wondering what sizes would work other than the original and not rub fender, etc.. Thanks, Jamie
