  1. My newest RJ 35

    Gotta agree with vin about the oil rub. Did my '57 like that and it never looked quite right. Can't really describe it other than the rj looked like it was trying to be something it wasn't. Cheers
  2. Help identify this Horse

    Upper Canada et all, Went looking for a pic of a restored rj '58 on Red Square to show my wife the tractor I just bought. It's the one at the top of this post. Picking it up this week and will get proper picks posted. Because the hood has been cut away on both sides and it's been modified in other ways as well I'm thinking tear it down and make it all shiny and new. PO has sent me some more pics - looks like it has a Briggs engine in it as well. Cheers UC I feel your pain - I've missed out on so many this year it's making me crazy. At least 5.
  3. BIG SHOW 2016 BUY/SELL/TRADE THREAD HERE!

    Never been to the show so don't know if there are boatloads of parts or not but... I'm looking for an ignition module - or in lay man's terms, the thingy you stick the key in - for my 414-8. See you all next week.
  4. BIG SHOW 2016 BUY/SELL/TRADE THREAD HERE!

    I'll be looking for a 400 series tractor. 414-8, 416-8, 418-8. Already own a 414-8 Kohler only. If anyone is considering letting go of one of these please contact me.
  5. Big Show 2016 -- Customs

    Damn, thought this was advice on clearing US Customs for those of us from north of the border. Never mind.
  6. Missed this by a couple of hours on CL Buffalo last week. If there is any chance someone has one of these and would be willing to part with it please get in touch with me.
  7. Thank you for your prayers

  10. '57 rj 35

    I am selling my '57 rj 35. Included are 3 additional Kohler K-90's - 1 working 2 for parts. The hood is in great shape - dead straight no rust holes gouges etc. Gas tank doesn't leak. Kill switch has been added since photos were taken. The only non- original parts are 2 engine shrouds and a reproduction belt guard which is currently on order from Joe Papke. Although the engine came to me as a rope start I do have a Schnake pull start for the engine. I'm looking for 1750.00 - OR BEST OFFER. Would consider a trade for another Wheel Horse tractor I'd be looking for something in C, D, 400, 500 series 18 horse or better. Kohler definitely. Preference is 8 speed.

  12. k90 Trouble

    Well you asked for it. Also this was a goal of mine - to get the engine sound like this. Don't know why... it just sounds like it's supposed to - to me anyway. Have recut "Had a little Accident" and will be reposting after the sequel "RJ's REVENGE" is ready for prime time Just because.m4v
  13. k90 Trouble

    Thought I posted this last night but apparently not. Huge thanks to all and if ever there was a time for dancing bananas this is it so... Tweaked the carb tonight and was actually out riding the rj tonight. Unbelievable.
  14. k90 Trouble

    Wallfish: Nailed it!! I took the engine out of the tractor fired it up and then positioned the throttle conduit to touch the points. Engine immediately started to fail. Took it away and repeated the process. Same result. So I'll get the points cover back on once I'm happy with the engine timing.
