  1. Hello all, was wondering if anyone could help me out with info or advice on how to go about fixing my brake pedal on my '92 312-8. I don't know if it's just a pin/part that needs replacing, or there is more to it than that...I have hand tools, but am not really mechanically inclined---learning this stuff as I go. Pics/instructions to follow, would be appreciated. My machine is parked/put up for the winter, 'bout 120miles from here; going about lots of this backwards, I know, but I'm trying to build my store of knowledge, for now, Thanks for any and all help. Here is a pic for reference. Dad told me it is a common problem; we just didn't get to it lasttime I was back home, where it is stored currently (after going over fluids, cleaning, etc). I just like things to be "right"...he laughed when I found a replacement NOS hr meter for the pictured empty hole (now since installed),,,to him THAT was an uneeded "bell" (as in, ...whistle). If the mods need to move this post, no problem; I looked around, didn't see a "specific" place that fit better to post my question.
  2. Got her goin

    I started the restoration in 2009. Had to stop (work and life) finally got it back together last week. It still needs some stuff here and there but the hardest stuff is done
  3. Hello all - I have a 1990 312-8 that recently started being a pain to shift, and eventually it stopped shifting into 1st and reverse and was hard to get into 2nd and 3rd. After looking at some posts on here I discovered the possibility that a loose shifter could cause this problem. My shifter definitely had a lot of play in it so I proceeded to pull the seat, rear plate and shift plate off the tractor so I could get to the area where the shifter goes into the transmission. I removed the shifter, reseated it and got the dog head screw lined up in the shifter donut and was hoping that would fix the issue, but after getting it all reassembled and trying to shift even into 2nd or 3rd the shifter, while not as sloppy, now just turns side to side - taking it back out and inspecting the shifter I have discovered that the pin which holds the donut in place on the shifter has sheered and the donut is now able to free spin on the shaft. Not too much of a problem as I plan on just pressing the old pin out and replacing, however I am concerned that the ball on the end of the shifter seems to be getting pretty flattened off on the left and right sides of the ball. I tried looking up a replacement on Toro and several other parts websites but I can't find one anywhere - I can get the boot, everyone has those, but no shifter. My question is, does anyone know where I might be able to find a new shifter and more important, is a little flattening on the ball anything to worry about? Also, with the shifter out, looking down the hole my transmission looks like it's full of mud! Definitely doesn't look like the gear oil I put in it - anyone know what could be causing the transmission gear oil to be sludging up like that?
  4. Hello. I recently purchased a 312-8 with blower and dozer blade. I cannot figure out how to hook it up. Please help me!
  5. Can 2 312-8 transmissions be linked together?
  6. My husband was a long time member of the forum, some of you might have known him. I am looking to sell his wheel horse. I believe it is a 1990 Toro/WH 312-8 Series with a 42" Deck. It has minimal wear and tear. Was running recently, but not now, however I don't know the reason. Otherwise in good shape. Beloved by my husband around our property. Asking for $500 or Best Offer.
  7. 312-8 Pulley Wheel Question

    Afternoon! I am looking to adjust the diameter of the pulley on the engine and the one on the transaxle to speed up my tractor a bit. (For fun) I have decided to increase the size of the engine pulley by 1" and decrease the size of the trans pulley by 1". I have not been able to find the proper pulley in local stores, and am hoping anyone here might have some insight into where I could order them online, and maybe help me identify the proper side as I'm not exactly sure what size is on there currently (Do you measure the outer diameter of the pulley, or the inner diameter of where the belt lays? Base on outer diameter, they are 4" on the engine, and 6.5 inch on the transaxle.) The tractor is a 312-8 1985, with a 4 pinion 1" axle shaft transaxle. I greatly appreciate any feedback or help! Thanks! -Bert
  8. I have a 1985 Wheel Horse 312-8 and am going to be using it for mudding and other fun stuff. I want to put some ag tires on it, but am hoping any of you can chime in on good places to get them from, what size I can go up to without modifying the fender and such. Thoughts? Thanks!!! -Bert
  9. 1986 312-8 w/ Deck

    I have a 1986 Wheel Horse 312-8 in fair shape that I'm the 2nd owner of. At least that was what I was told in 1996 when I bought it. I've not used it to mow with for a while as I'm running a 314-8. I do start from time to time and run it around the yard. Last time it was started was last Sep '16. Has newer rear tires w/ chains. The chains are in fair shape. The mowing deck is 36" or 38". I'll be pulling it out to start soon as it's been a while. The seat needs new vinyl that's why it's covered. Instead of letting it sit idle maybe someone will restore it and run it around. I have it on Craigslist as well. Send along a note if interested.

  11. Tiller for 312- 8

    Hi, im new here so bear with me as I find my way around. I recently bought my first wheelhorse. It's a 312- 8. I'd really like to get a tiller attachment for it. I only found one on local Craigslist and the guy wanted $650 for it. Am i gonna have to pay that much for one? What is a reasonable price and are there other places i should be looking for one? Thanks so much?
  12. Swapping k series into an m series

    Curious has anyone swapped a 12 hp k series into a m series tractor? I have a 312-8 that needs a motor and I have a k series 12 motor and curious how big a deal the swap would be?
  13. New Wheel Horse Owner

    Afternoon! I have heard many good things about Wheel Horse tractors, and recently decided to make my first purchase! My budget was pretty low, and I stumbled on one that needs some work so it seems like the right thing to do. Picked up a 1985 312-8 21-12K801 for $150. Overall not too bad condition and runs well, but the steering is completely broken. That is my first project to get this thing in working order and then I can worry about lesser items. I know virtually nothing about this tractor yet, so any tips, tricks, or overall advice is welcome! Especially if it has anything to do with getting the steering in order, as I'm not sure how much I can fix and what will need to be replaced, not sure if this is a common issue or not. I will post pictures of the tractor and the steering issue. Thanks, and happy wheeling! -Robert

  15. snowblower

    I'm looking at a snow blower, not sure the actual numbers but I wanted to get some opinions on if my 312-8 will run it or have any problems...
  16. First off.... I DID NOT DO IT! The neighbor told me his 312-8 was up on the hill immobile. He uses it for cutting the grass between the Christmas trees. Problem was it was stuck in reverse and couldn't even be pushed. Further in the conversation it came out that he got stuck in a groundhog hole. He tried to rock it out of the hole. He said the smoke was flying! I assumed it was a belt, clutch problem. So up on the hill I took off the fenders and shifter. With a long punch I was able to force it into neutral and coast it home. Today I got the transfer case apart. Not a pretty sight. The price of the 3 gears on Partstree is $665! The 312-8 will get a transplant from his smoking WorkHorse. Here's pics.

  18. 312-8 starter won't engage

    I'm a newbie to this wheel horse world so first off, thanks for any advice/assistance you give me. I have a 312-8 with a 12HP kohler and the starter will spin but won't engage the flywheel. Do I need a new starter or is there something else I can do?
  19. I need some advice. I have spent the last two days trying to figure out how to bypass the PTO Clutch saftey switch? I have tore her down and I can see the switch, however, when I disconnect all of the wires from it the christmass tree light still lights up alerting that the lever is not in the "disengaged" position. This is not accurate as I have the lever in the correct position. Is there a way to bypass all of the saftey switches? I have the tractor up on jack stands with no wheels and no attachments connected. I am trying to get the engine started for the first time to see where I am in that area. Looking at the switch it appears to have two metal strips on its side that the lever slides up against when engaging and disengaging. They appear to be corrroded and it is next to impossible to get the switch out without taking apart the entire sterring box etc. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Marty
  20. Bought this guy today for $60.00 on a buy/sell/trade site. Can't wait to start the restoration project. Looking for any advice/tips/tricks/pitfalls etc? Thanks, Marty
  21. 1998 312-8 for sale

    For sale is my first Wheel Horse, my 1998 312-8. Tractor is real clean and runs great. I've currently got it listed on Craigslist for $1,000 with a 37" deck and bagger setup. Tractor has 775 hours on it and doesn't skip a beat does have a minor dent in the hood from something falling on it when it was in winter storage. I would keep it but I have 3 horses currently and need the extra room. Willing to sell as a bare tractor is someone is interested. Shoot me an offer I'm negotiable on price.
  22. Hi all, looking for some help in identifying if mower decks from a 1977 C-160 and 1984 C-165 would fit on my 312-8 early 90's model. Thanks for any input. Brandon
  23. This is my first wheel horse and i love the tractor other than one issue. So i bought a 1996 toro Wheel horse. I was mowing my lawn for the first time and noticed the motor was moving around too much. Upon further inspection the motor bolts were loose. I tightened them, but there was only 2 bolts present. I did more research and the chassis is a 96 according to the id tag and the motor is the correct kohler 12 also manufactured in 96. Is there just two bolts that hold the engine in or am i crazy? on the PTO spindle side it looks like the engine bolt holes just hang off the tractor by like an inch and are way off. I thought i was missing some kind of engine mounting plate or something. I searched the internet and it lead me to this great wheel horse forum. I looked up a few schematics and they were not that helpful. Any help is appreciated. Below is a picture of her i had to pick it up it was very clean.
  24. #79350 #79351 I have run across these two plow/blades. Will they fit a 312-8? What would a reasonable price be (assuming all of the hardware is present, which I still don't know) Also curious if you think any of these decks will fit mine. I have not seen them in person. Also a reasonable price for the decks. For what its worth, I put a 16hp Kohler engine on the 312-8, if power is a concern. Thanks!
  25. I have a friend a few towns away that is looking for a blade for his 84-6 312-8. I have a couple of short frame blades from the sixties and wondered if they might fit his 312-8. Any ideas? Thanks.
