  1. well now we have it

  2. 4 SPEED #5085 Trans rebuild Videos & Pics

    Steve the videos are very helpful. Did you replace all the bearings that are in the trans cases? I've got mine apart and i'm wondering if they would be ok to reuse if I clean them up real good and pack some quality grease in them. Also what's the best way to get the woodruff key off the "input shaft". I't won't budge and I don't want to bugger it up.
  3. '72 Commando 800 rebuild

    After tearing it apart and polishing gears as much as I see there's some pitting and chips off some of the gears. Would this warrant trying to find new ones? I think the pitting was caused by water mixing with the gear oil, creating some sort of acid. Would sandblasting do more harm than good? I can't get everywhere with a polishing wheel.
  4. Have you seen the NatGeo ad for the documentary on the hit on BinLaden? If we had so much trouble for some silly movie poking fun of Allah shouldn't this new doc bring about a few more embassy attacks?

  5. Any bets on the election?

  10. Altes Brot ist nicht hart, Kein Brot das ist hart

  11. Hi, I'm new to this forum. Joined since it appears there are a lot of Wheel Horse fans out there who might offer some advice on how to go about restoring my old mower. ? # 1: How do I know for sure what model number my trans is? I'm thinking it's a 5058 but I would like to know for sure. I have the RH case off it now in a vise. I've never rebuilt anything so I need all the help I can get. Where can I get a repair manual with better pictures in it? The old man I bought the mower from didn't have the rubber boot over the shifter and needless to say, water got into the trans and I can now see the gunky rust/acid that formed inside. ? #2: would it be safe to sandblast (maybe with soda?) the case inside and all the internals? and ? # 3: how do you get out the little plug that keeps the shiter rods with the detents in. It's some sort of spring loaded rod but instead of an allen head screw all I see is a little plut in the hole. Thanks fellas for any info you might have to help with these issues.
