  1. Hi, i have a couple questions if anyone would mind helping me out! I have a 414-8 (i think its an 87) that I would like to swap a few things on to make it work and look a little better to me. The first thing is the front axle... will a 520 swept front axle bolt right in? Is the center pivot bolt the same diameter? I know the outer knuckles are larger 1" on those machine but are they the same height? I figured I could just sleeve the knuckle to keep my stock 3/4" 414 spindles if so Also any info on this john deer 200 series swept front axle swap? anyone know if the pivot and knuckles are all the same diameters on that one? and how much wider is it? This one is actually looking to be an easier swap if the bushings are all the same size Also whats differences on the 520 frames? Are they longer or the exact same frame? Brace for the transmission mount? and mainly just the front axle?

  7. Hey guys, I have a thoroughly abused 520 that a buddy gave me. I've been slowly checking it out and making a list of things that need to be fixed. I just pulled the spark plugs and sprayed a little oil down the cylinders and spun the starter to check for compression (without a gauge). The front cylinder has great compression (almost sucked my finger in), the back one has almost nothing. Will I damage anything if I get it running with the bad cylinder to continue checking out what needs to be fixed? In other words would it OK to run a 520 with bad compression on a cylinder? I won't be working it or anything. Does anyone know how involved it is to replace the rings on the back piston? For those who may care, here is my list thus far: [ ] Check valve clearance [ ] Replace spark plugs [ ] Replace air filter [ ] Replace fuel filters [ ] Change oil [ ] Find air box cover [ ] Replace? Fuel pump [ ] Replace fuel lines [ ] Intake, exhaust and carb gaskets [ ] Clean carb [ ] Fix choke [ ] Replace burnt wires [ ] Replace fuel cutoff [ ] Fix compression in back cylinder [ ] Replace rear lights If there's anything else I should be checking out, please let me know. This is my first horse, my first riding mower, and my first project. So I don't exactly know what I'm doing. And like I said, this was abused. You'd never guess it has 300 something hours on it. Thanks so much.

  11. Ok , been asked a lot of questions about how I rebuild front axles - unless they are physically broken no axle is really past the wear point of being rebuildable . I'm starting with an early D series front axle and upgrading to a later model D series 1" spindle type with the heavier casting . Since I could never find any pics of a comparison - here we go.... If you look closely - there is an obvious difference in the castings at the spindle end - the later model axles were thicker and larger diameter to accept the heavy duty 1" spindles. Later model (post '75 , I believe). This photo really shows the obvious difference in diameter - early models were much smaller and a thinner casting for the early 3/4" only spindles . Need to find someone with a tape measure and one of the oddball early D-200 1" spindle equipped tractors to find out if those were a thin casting or the thicker type . The machined relief is for the roller thrust bearings that were originally used - if you ever buy a D or I believe the 520's , this is the first thing to check as many were never properly greased and destroyed that bearing . This can really wreck an expensive spindle and make it more difficult to rebuild the axle casting itself . I will be re-machining these reliefs to mimic the factory design to keep dirt out and retain the grease inside the bearing . Early castings , at least on this 18 Auto or D-180 that I have (missing the stupid id tag completely) measures roughly 1-1/2" outside ... Later model upgraded casting is a whole different animal - there are major differences in how they were cast and not just at the spindle ends . Later models were 1-3/4" on the outside . Since I've never seen a new old stock replacement I'm not certain as to the original finish quality of the machining on these things - it is obvious that over time dirt has entered and a lack of proper grease results in the bores being worn badly - some are literally egg-shaped , especially tractors from the late 60's with high hours and heavy use . Snowblowers and other heavy front implements of course accelerate this wear issue - I'm out to cure that and make the unit more serviceable . The biggest , #1 problem with these is how they are greased . I've bought and sold tractors for years and had some that had huge grease balls around the spindles , inside the wheels and all over the front end . At least they were trying but the wear is almost no different than one that was seriously neglected . With the weight on the spindle , the grease is forced upward and exits at the E-clip at the top , never lubricating the bottom where it rides on the spindle base for the steering arm . The correct way to grease these things is to lift the tractor BY THE FRAME , NOT THE AXLE ITSELF . Also , do not lift it by the front mule quick attach - you will bend the cross rod for the latch and destroy it . Best way is to use a block on the frame itself or make a spreader to fit the jack , maybe I can take the time to get pics to show better ways to pick these things up since they aren't exactly lightweight ...lol . No make or brand was exempt from this issue , they all did it . The problem becomes parts availability - there are only so many parts left and finding good spindles and axles is becoming a serious problem . Some brands aren't too bad (such as the green ones) since they still support most of their older models . Unfortunately for us - Toro has chosen to drop these parts and stock is quite limited . I got really lucky and a parts dealer friend had a pair of NOS 1" D series spindles , one of the last pair to exist to my knowledge . Those are getting blueprinted and angles mapped for later - I may tackle making new ones in both the 3/4" and 1" versions . I believe with a little engineering the earlier models made in the 60's could use a sort of generic spindle since there little difference in the many models - it was mostly down to the axle's angles and width . My D will be upgraded to heim joints for the steering . Many of the tie rod and drag link ends are NLA and finding steering arms that don't have the tapered holes wallowed out is getting pretty tough . The low angle taper on those automotive style ends allows them to work loose despite having fine thread castle nuts and cotters - the force required to turn the wheels due to the above mentioned lubrication issues , combined with a gear reduction Ross type steering box makes the holes in the arms wear - I've seen 4 of these spindles on different D's all worn the same way with the tapered factory holes oval in shape and the shanks on the rod ends could be easily turned with a wrench, which should not be possible .Converting to heims is not too hard and less expensive in the long run - the only issue being the left hand threaded rod ends at the steering bell crank (or idler arm) . Since it sits so close to the underside of the frame and being tight quarters we may have to resort to using a reduced size heim joint which are easily obtained if you know the part number systems . I have a NOS pair of factory rod ends (ball joints in the parts manual) so this one won't be getting this upgrade for now . The factory bell crank is subject to wear like everything else . It's buried up under the engine and I suspect most were neglected being so hidden . Inside is a steel bushing riding on the cast iron bore of the bell crank . The retaining bolt , bushing and iron casting all get worn - which results in sloppy steering . On a D that's a real problem since their turning radius is huge to begin with . I've modified mine slightly by moving the turning arc point of the drag link inward by 3/8" - when it's done I'll test and measure the turning radius to see how much it helped and if there is any interference or other issues . Models with working turning brakes in either the stock D-200 or kit-equipped smaller models of course helped when in dirt or grass - just never use those on pavement or hard surfaces since it can really bind things up and possibly cause rear axle damage . It's all mentioned in the manual and instructions for the kits to add turning brakes . Not sure yet if I'll just make a separate thread on the steering parts or include them here - plenty of info to make a long thread on the cast iron axle alone . Depending upon how well it works out I may offer this as another service to the long list of other parts I build or rebuild currently . Guy with a lathe , far too many tools and a TIG welder must stay busy during the long winters....lol . So far, it hasn't been a cheap venture - tooling bits and parts totals are well over $400 and climbing - haven't really started any machine work on the axle as of yet since I'm still waiting on one tooling bit . I will try to document what is used in the rebuild and a parts list as well as sources . All bushings and bearings used will be off the shelf parts so it's nothing that isn't easily available . Lathe work my be required to avoid using custom ordered parts and their associated extra costs . Anyhow , more to follow.... Sarge Going forward
  12. 523Dxi w/power steering

    523Dxi riding mower. This tractor has a very strong 23hp, 3 cylinder diesel engine. Starts right up, no need to use the glow plugs! Runs strong, smooth, and clean! She doesn't burn a drop of oil. This comes standard with: power steering, tilt wheel, foot controls, real electric cruise control, working headlights and taillights, hydraulic lift (with down pressure), tilt and sliding seat, rear dual quick hitch, mid and front attach-a-matic hook ups, liquid cooling, hydrostatic drive, high and low range transmission, full dash with lights and gauges. This comes with a 48" side discharge mower deck (pics coming) as well as the mule drive, brand new Wheel Horse 75 lb wheel weights (plastic), brand new 2 link tire chains, brand new rubber Terra Grip tire chains, some extra filters, and a brand new oem 48" snow plow / dozer blade. Note: this snow plow is Brand New and has never touched the ground! You can angle it right from the seat. All paint is factory paint. This tractor is a very rare model being the diesel. The battery is strong, the tires are like new and all hold air with no leaks. There are NO drips or leaks anywhere on the machine. I have the original bill of sale, all the books, brochures, owners manuals and service manuals. If you don't haggle on price I will throw in an extra set of 50lb wheel weights (plastic) as well as another pair of 75lb cast iron rear wheel weights (very rare, too). This tractor was 9k new with the mower deck! All original and in mint condition. Mower deck is solid, I do believe it may need one set of spindle bearings. One set was replaced and has about 3 hours on them. Haven't used the deck in over a year. Extremely clean machine! Graphics are compliments of Terry. The seat is aftermarket and very close to the original design. I have the original seat. As you can see the sun was coming through the trees making some of the photos patchy. There are no dents on this tractor. There are some scratches here and there but the red paint is all original. The red on the underside is superb! With the exception of the seat and decals everything is stock. That diesel motor is unbelievably strong! I have plenty of photos I can email to serious parties.
  13. Spark Plug

    what spark plugs cross reference with Champion RH14YC for the Onan 20hp on a 520 ?
  14. I have a Custom 2" Heavy Duty Hitch for sale. Comes with mounting plates and hardware. It is brand new, never got to tow anything with it. I ordered it from one of the vendors on this site. He did a great job of making and shipping it, it was well worth what I paid for it. About the time I got it, I decided (sadly) I needed to part with the 520-H that it was intended for. I hope one of you guys can use it. I hope that the vendor (I don't want to mention his name without his permission) will understand why I am re-selling it this price. I will split the cost of shipping with the buyer, probably around 20 bucks more or less depending on where its going and how you want it shipped. Thanks Todd
  15. 520H with Hiller Attachment

    Just of quick pic of my 520 getting ready to hill disc the garden.
  16. Onan 20HP for 520 HC (1989)

    Hi All, New to the forum - from Australia and looking for an Onan 20HP for my Wheel Horse 520 HC - I'm not that good a swimmer so someone would need to be prepared to go through the hassle of sending this engine to me in Australia - and to be honest I have no idea of the amount of work/effort that would take from your end there. I am after an engine that is is good to great working condition too please. All help/assistance would be appreciated. I have had my 520 for 14 years and it is a lot like me - looks terrible, old and beaten up but still works great (it doesn't look at all like the ones on the site here - they are like new!!!! congratulations to you all). i have maintained and had the 520 serviced twice per year (minimum) but just two weeks ago it blew up - short blocks need to be re-chromed so my mechanic tells me (I am not mechanically skilled at all, I may have the explanation mucked up a little/lot!!) thanks in advance - Paul from Warragul Australia!

  19. Front Rim for 520H 1" axle

    Wanted 1 front rim that fits a 520H, 1" swept axle. PM or call 7248804552
  20. Selling a very nice 54" snow plow / dozer blade with mount and rear quick hitch. Believe this was used on my uncle's C series but I'm fairly certain it will work with a 300, 400, 500 series tractor. Model 6 4113. I think it has original paint. Best bet is to call: justin 410-812-1943
  21. Very nice snow plow / dozer blade. 48" width and in great shape. Comes with the quick hitch for the rear as well! Model #06-48BC01 well worth the money. call 410-812-1943
  22. Will an 6-6214 42" snow thrower fit my 520? I've been watching for a blower for this machine and most of what I can find, and afford, are these older models- single-stage, short-chute. From what I can tell this older model would fit the 1975 C-120 and C-160 but I have no idea if it will fit my much newer (1995) 520. Anyone know for sure if this fits, what if any mods it would need? Thanks in advance.
  23. 520-H Steering

    My 520-H steering is somewhat "sloppy". When I was looking to see where the slop was I noticed that a bolt has been put into a hole through the fan gear & shaft and this is where most of the problem is. My question is....Is this supposed to have a roll pin or is it supposed to be welded.? Thanks!
  24. Hello Red Square Community! My father recently rebuilt a 1990 520-H he found at a junk yard and surprised me with it as a birthday present. I've done a lot of searching for guidance on implements/attachments that will fit this particular model but am coming up short. I would love to get a rototiller, snow thrower, and a blade but I have no idea what will work. My model number is 41-20OE01. Will any wheel horse attachment prior to 1990 work with this tractor? I'm new to this so any help would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time!
  25. I see youtube videos of smaller garden tractors tossing around the 36" Brinly-Hardy disc harrow style discs but has anyone used anything bigger? It may be a stupid question or bad thing to do but I'm just curious. I'm thinking a 520 could theoretically be made to run a hydraulic line set out the back to lift and lower a larger disc. I don't see any reason why with some wheel weights and Ag tires it wouldn't be able to pull a larger disc. I'm not thinking anything huge but maybe a small double gang disc, something in the 4-5' range after taking the outer plates off of a 6' unit?
