  1. Got a "new" C120 Wheelhorse

    That is the cover to the oil breather. Inside you see a small mesh-like filter. You can buy them.
  2. Foot rests for a 657

    to Those footrest "pegs" were used on many models of that time period (early 60's). By the late 60's-70's Wheel Horse started using the longer wider footrests. What kind of Wheel Horse do you have? Look for an ID tag that should be mounted on steering tower that tag will have model number. or post a pic and someone on here will help you ID the tractor that you have. I looked around my barn but unfortunately found only a single footrest peg. I do have a pair of the longer style.
  3. Is the gas draining back to the tank?

    I recommend just before fuel pump. I think if you place it closest to the tank, that would be the lowest spot, and gravity will make the gas naturally flow to to that point, you may be defeating the use of the check valve. Just my Ed let us know how they work out for you. Curious on where you run the wires to, obvious the ignition, I think ???
  4. Is the gas draining back to the tank?
