  1. Red Square 2018 Calendar Project

    Not meant as a joke! May not be apropos but let's give the ole guy credit, and what a great winter project! He died in the LINE OF FIRE DUTY while doin' his masters bid. He's still standing by diligently waitin' for the medics to return life support. Already I can hear the scoldin', but what a comparison to some of the excellent work from our group of restorers! .
  2. I thought you guys might want to see this

    Ditto the other members, a legacy leaver of values to a son who cared enough to share his fathers passions to/with others. Thanks
  3. Crusty beyond saveable horse

    You hopefully have found one and if weren't so far off this'd be a good one. It's 70 or so mi's south of me and I'm goin to get it soon as trailer gets fixed. Me and son want to study it. It got killed by fire I'm told. Local restaurant has this'n chained to tree, when asked he says "es antique, no sell!" said that ain't as old as mine!!
  4. Attach-a-matic

    Check in manuals for year model under (top next to BROWSE or close)> Manuals>tractor>(YR) in an applicable IPL/IPB (parts diagrams) and it should include a section wit the front, mid and rear, but not the axel, clevis, or slot hitches. The yr operator manuals should discuss how to operate them. I think they are under Miscellaneous or other. The Attachments list for particular years is prob under miscellaneous also and covers what newer fits or changes to older, if that makes sense. Hope that helps, if not input particular year and model and ya'll get a response. When you pick BROWSE a dropdown menu appears with the pick function containing manuals
  5. Model #

    71-08K801 1977 B Series Garden Tractor B-80 8-Speed Kohler K181S-30629D 8 (from Wheel Horse all Years Chart in manuals) is what shows, but I see Garry already sent manual info
  6. New To Me RJ

    Sent ya a PM about Clinton engines and parts. Seems like a joyous project awaits yer attention! Let us know if ya will about the Fastenal experience: I favor the idea they have although here they always have to refer to manager for pricing, ha!
  7. I know Mrs specialwheelhorse would be immensely humbled by all the good sent by our membership. Her name is Dee as is one of his daughters. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the memorial this coming Sat but my thoughts will be with Mrs Dee and the daughter and prob many grand children. I think it will be in Brighton, Tn. THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOU KINDNESS, UNDERSTANDING, AND PRAYERS. He will be missed, his memory will LIVE on! Just spoke with Mrs Dee, memorial is in Rosemark, Tn at Community Baptist Churh if any meber in the area wishes to attend I know you would be Welcomed.
  8. Specialwheelhorse Jimmy Rodgers has gone to a new stable in heaven 07/25/17. One of the TRULY nicest humans on earth. Such a sad happening, but he suffers no longer. Keep his memory alive in your heart and a prayer for his wife and daughters.
  9. Don't know where tyo start bad news

    Thank ya'll so much Mrs specialwheelhorse will get comfort knowin' the care and concern of his fellow Wheel Horse members. I will keep an update as find out.
  10. Our member, specialwheelhorse Jimmy has been in the hospital since March 21st (just found out) and is not goin' to be with us much longer. I asked for permission from his Mrs. to relate this information and it was ok'd. She is asking for help to liquidate Jimmy's stable of fabulous WH's, all with mowers and his spare engines and parts. I really don't know where to turn, but here. He has moved from Texas to Tennessee, but last I saw of stable was excellent appearance and condition. His Pond signed WH was unique to me but prob customary to all that are able to go to Mentone. Anyway if anyone cares to help on this matter (I believe we are only to sell what's in our hands on classified) His wife Dee would greatly appreciate it and I would as far as where and how to go forward with this. Again I just can't say enough good about Jimmy as many of you too found when and if ya met him, please say a prayer for him, wife Dee and family and I will try and find more on location and liquidation. All I ask is fairness and respect for the man, his work, and family too.
  11. pulling rj?

    Yeah don't cha just hate when they lagh and say "Just a lawn mower"! Oh what fun!!!!!
  12. Idler pulley question

    I definetly would give a try ( turning over), run it up, very cautiously have some or yourself (while engager stays seated to shut down and keep interlocks engaged) observe while running and see if defaults to worn spot. If it does and eats at belt get rid of it. Also it's a curiosity why so wide. Yo might find one at Tractor Supply if one is up there if do need one.
  13. The Large and Short of It

    Really like the tractor in the middle, ha. Really both "huggables!"
  14. Gosh this worries me
