I Hello all,
I was turned on to Wheel Horse earlier this summer. I sold a 98 Murray that I had garbage picked and repaired, needed something that could do more than mow. I saw a listing for a 1977 D160 on another site and when the pic finally appeared... I just had to have it.
If you frequent this site you may not recognize it at first, but this is Jake Kuhns old tractor (he is a good kid).
I bought the tractor for purpose, I needed something that can level my driveway and help maintain the private road I live on. I also wanted the option of a blower. I have done a ton of work to it since I got it from Jake. I pulled the motor and rebuilt it, rebuilt the carb. The snowthrower was in pretty rough shape so I stripped as much of the rust off as I could, replaced all the bearings, put on a new pulley and gave it a fresh coat of paint (will add pics soon). I then turned my attention to the tractor and back blade. I would not call it a full restoration since I did not fully dissassemble it, blast and paint. I just removed what I could, cleaned it up and painted as much as I could.
I still have a bit of work to do to get it finished up, but its pretty close.
after all the work I have put into this over the past 6 weeks I think I have earned my membership. Hope you all enjoy... Jake deserves some credit on this project too!
Hope to hear from you, if anyone is desperate for onan some 16hp parts I might have what you need. Just ask!
