  1. Thinking about 520H Repower

    Hi Guys, The Onan in my 520H was running poorly so last month I took the heads off, decarboned, cleaned/reseated the valves, checked valve seats and reassembled with new gasket set. When installing intake manifold, I realized last year (carb cleaning) I forgot to hook up vacuum line from manifold to gauge. Hooked it up correctly this time and ran great. First blizzard yesterday and started snow blowing. After about 15 minutes the became noticeably louder with less power. I was wondering firstly if anyone has any idea what went wrong? Also, I was thinking about repowering with a Honda or Vanguard and would love opinions on which way to go? Also, should I go with an engine or kit and which company? I’m good at fabrication, etc. Thanks in advance! Happy NewYear
  2. Wanted: Original Cab roof Part# 8795

    I'm looking for a Fiberglass or ABS roof made by Original Cab. Cab #P650CC01. (Part number 8795 Plastic top, long.) I'm also looking for the glass windshield with electric wiper blade. Part number 5975. Madison, WI.
  3. I recently purchased a Original Cab model P6500CC01. Minus the roof.I was told by Original Cab that the glass windshield and ABS roof that they sell would not work on my cab. Has anyone modified a new roof and glass windshield to work on this cab? Or does someone know where I might find a used roof and glass windshield for this cab.
  4. NOS, Original Tractor Co snow cab Original Tractor Cab P650CC01 *NOTE: as far as I can tell, the plastic white top is all that is missing Otherwise, the pieces are in good shape, never used - just dirty from sitting. The instructions and unopened original hardware also included. Per the instructions this model is for 1990 and up 500 series tractors, although likely will fit / adapt to others somewhat easily. I bought this with my 520h from the original owner who advised it was never used and from the condition and packaging that appears to be the case. I will not use it so I am looking to give a good home. As a side note - the tractor only has 256 hours on it and also has a powered leaf / grass bagger unit (which is not something I see often as far as attachments). But up for sale here is the NOS snow cab and hardware only .
  5. Changing oil

    I changed the oil/filter on my 520H last fall. I only put 4 hours in the tractor last winter. The oil is still golden-brown in color. It's looks new Should I change the oil and filter again?
  6. Should I pull the trigger

    Been watching Craigslist and found this listing: Anyone see any red flags? things to ask? thanks!
  7. FEL on 520

    Cleaned up another old Simpsom loader laying around and mounted it on a 520H . I think it came out looking good. I have had at least 6 of these Simpson loader and I think they are great. all new fittings and hoses and stripped to bare metal, and painted, 125 lbs. of rear wts on each wheel, need to clean up bucket yet. It lift at least 7 ft. Love the 520's for loader tractors, easy steering and plenty of power.
  8. I'm looking for a rear axle for my 520h. Anybody have one? I have a loader on the tractor and this is the second time I broke the axle. I would consider a complete rear end.
  9. 520H dead

    520H is dead. Things I've tested so far. I've jumped a wire from + battery to blue wire on starter. It cranks over good. I cleaned safety switches, starter, ignition connections. I notice if I jiggle or slowly turn key the lighted board will come on. A couple of times the tachometer reset itself. the lights will not turn on. Is it possibly the ignition switch?
  10. 48" SD mower deck 78361

    48" side discharge mower deck, used only 1 summer. This deck is in fantastic shape. Little bit of rust, very straight and spins like new. I can ship Fastenal at cost, or pick up. 300.00 OBO. https://flic.kr/p/X6JGCv https://flic.kr/p/W2Kf91 https://flic.kr/p/XeMMYG
  11. I have a 1994 520H that was running good and lost spark. Comes with a snow cab but no other attachments. I would like to find someone that want to get it back running and use it. Willing to give to a good home not looking to get anything for it. Alex
  12. 520H electrical woes

    Hi All, here's hoping some of you learned folk will offer your thoughts and opinions. Bought a 93 520H that has had several neglectful owners. At various times, changes have been made to the electrical wiring. All bad as far as I can see. The original ignition switch was changed for a universal switch, so the original plug and wires were cut off and crimp terminals added. A hole was drilled in the dash and a push button starting switch added. Plus other nonsense. So, I am basically going through the loom wire by wire using the wiring diagram to tell me what's what. The white wire from the B+ terminal has almost melted. The red wire from the starter motor to the fuse box has melted the contact in the 9 pin plug and come adrift. Several safety switches were broken so I assume that's the reason for bypassing everything with the push button starter switch (quick, cheap and nasty fix). My questions are these: Is it a wise move to remove the 9 pin connector completely and replace it with solid wiring? ( I have new identical 9 pin plugs sourced from ebay but don't feel obliged to use it ) Instead of sourcing power for the fuse box which is 30 inches of wiring away on the starter motor terminal, is it better to have a wire going directly to the battery which is only 6 inches from the fuse box? It doesn't seem logical to pick up battery power from the starter motor end of the cable when the battery end is only 6 inches away from the fuse box. The gray tachometer wire has also been cut and joined into another (stator wire), can somebody reply with a pic of what the terminals should look like at the regulator? I have included some pics of the catastrophe for everyone's amusement. Look forward to your thoughts Steve.
  13. My mule drive fell apart when I was plowing this winter and I grabbed all the parts I saw, but I'm not sure I got everything. Seems like there should be some spacers or washers to separate the pulleys. When it goes back together, I'll put a cotter pin through the nut.
  14. I would like to buy pretty much any spare parts or implements for a 520h I also need the blade positioning handle for a 48" dozer blade.
  15. ignition switch

    Hey Guys, I am having an issue with my 520H. I parked it a while back to change the deck and when I went to start it it wouldn't crank over. I checked the battery, safety switches and connections and they were ok. I happened to swap out the old ignition with a new one and the tractor started and ran great thru probably a dozen on/off cycles. I ran it last night, turned it off and when I went to start it, it wouldn't turn over and start. I'm thinking that its a much bigger issue and am open to suggestions. Thanks guys!
  16. On a 1992-1996 520H wheel horse lawn tractor, I have replaced the starter motor and flywheel. I also replaced the coil, condenser, plugs and wires. After all that was done, the tractor started first time cranked and I mowed the 1 acre yard one time. When I went back to mow again it would not start and I see the starter motor is now chewing up the flywheel gears. The new flywheel now has severe burring on the engine side. It looks like the starter is not fully engaging into the flywheel. The mounting bolts have a thick washer. Are those washers supposed to be spacers between the engine and the starter motor, thus moving the nose of the starter closer in toward the flywheel? Am I doing something else wrong?
  17. WTB Idler Pulley Set for 520H

    I just tried to hook up my tiller to the 520H and realized I don't have the idler pulley set. Can these be had or am I in for a long search? Call or text if you have one in the DC area. 703-966-9651 Thanks, Tyler
  18. New "shoes" for a horse

    I finally got around to mounting 1 set of new tires front and rear on my "Good Friday" 520H after 22 years the original Dico brand were weather/dry cracked through the sidewalls only tubes were holding the air inside, @HorseFixer, Duke the 23x10.50-12 Nanco brand Ags mounted out to 9.5" not 10.50" but still more than 8" wide ,I don't think you would've been happy with that for your set up, but I'm OK with them being a bit narrow, means a bit more traction and bit less flotation for my intended purposes mowing,gardening, and snow pushing. The fronts are Trac Gard 16x7.50-8 turfs they were an PITA to seat the beads but got it done, had tire shop do the rears, also did inside MF approximately 45# and outside weights CC 30# on them and put my one off powder coated wheel covers on (they hide the "blue" weights that were originally MF red) all this today since I'm on 4-10 hour days now Friday is going to be project day, anyways here the goods, Jeff.
  19. Hi Everyone, I am not selling this easily as the loader on this machine was the find of my WH collecting daze! For sale is a 1991 WH 520H with a 1970's Wheelhorse ARK Industries Loader, sub frame and the weight box. The clock on the 520 shows 1183.8 hours. However, the engine was bought off Ebay and I had it shipped to Pennsylvania from Michigan. This Onan P220 had less than 800 hours on it and I have put 40 hours and some change on it since installing years ago. (It doesn't get used a lot)! Before installing, I de-carboned it and replaced the top-end gaskets. I need room for home projects, space in the garage and I picked up another loader tractor of orange color so this one has to go. What's wrong with it!? Well first off, everything works as it should except a gauge light is out on one of the dash gauges. The gauge works, You just can't see it at night. One of the pivots on the loader left side is wallowing. It's not bad but it is something that I will mention. There is a small seep from the left side bucket dump cylinder hose connector. The tractor is also is a ***** to start if it sits awhile. What is right with this machine? All the gauges work! All the lights work! It has the forward swept front axle which makes turning with a loader wonderful. It has the heavy-duty front spindles so it can handle the stresses a loader with weight will induce on a tractor. The bucket is as solid as you can get and built heavy-duty! With the weight bucket full and with the 26x12x12 rear tires/rims, you won't get stuck unless you really try or are in some seriously bad terrain. Though this tractor's speed and direction is still controlled by the steering wheel lever, you will also get a complete foot pedal conversion kit I bought a few years ago on RedSquare and never installed. The motor runs great! The tranny is powerful cold, warm or hot! The loader works 100% and can handle many tasks least of which is snow removal. (Now is where I start to sound like a late night commercial) You will also get the original Onan P220 motor, (rear cyl valve seat went), with all the parts intact including the muffler, coil and fuel pump, PTO, etc. It can be rebuilt if you so desire. (If you buy it now).............. For the asking price, you also get a complete 1992 WH 416-8 that is 100% mechanically sound. (Electrical gave me fits so it has a push start). It looks like hell and a tire loses air but it runs and mows great and starts each and every time. It comes with a 42" SD mower deck that works well. The Onan P216 runs great and has good compression in both cyl. If anything happens to the 520H, the 216's motor can be dropped right in! I really need both these machines out of my garage and storage shed soon. I have NOT offered this on Craigslist or on our other popular classified website here in Central Pa yet. What I really want is for someone on Redsquare to buy it and take care of this machine. ARK Loaders are getting scarce and this unit runs great. I just don't use it as much as I though I would and having two loaders is nuts when space is tight. This machine has never sat out in the weather since I have owned it. (Almost 10 years). It has always been serviced and regularly maintained. It hasn't mowed grass in 5 years! The price is negotiable but I don't want to give it away. I won't ship it either as it's too much to take on and I'm busy as heck! Emails or PM's. I'll check in a few times a day until it is sold or if no takers, it goes on the block to someone who most likely won't care much about it! If you have any questions, let me know. More pictures are available if you want to see something up close and personal. Here are some of the views I took this afternoon of the loader/tractor. $2500 or best offer. Give me an offer. I'm not criminally insane. I'll counter or just say no. Just be serious folks. Thanks!
  20. 38" 2 stage snowblower

    I have for sale a like new 38" Wheelhorse 2 stage snowblower. The manual says it fits 300 and 400 series tractors but I have it mounted on a 520h with no problems at all. It is in great shape and everything works. Asking $750.
  21. Got the 520H back together!

    Thanks to Dave, I got the hydraulics line I needed for my 520H and finally got it put back together. I actually got the line a couple of weeks ago, but didn't get the chance to work on it until this week. First my mother-in-law passed away suddenly a couple weeks ago, then four days after her funeral, I had to go in the hospital for a heart cath and stent so I couldn't do anything for a week after that. Then a week ago my father-in-law went into the hospital for an infection that had turned septic. We didn't get him out until this Monday. So things have been rather crazy in my life lately. Since things are finally getting back to normal, I was finally able to spend some time in the shop this week. I did drain out what little oil was left in the transaxle and replaced it with fresh 10w30 Rotella. It was nice to finally get to drive it around the yard yesterday. The tractor still has a couple of minor issues. Biggest issue is the gas gauge sending unit, and I have posted a thread about that in the electrical section. I also have a wonky light switch, so I need to find another one of those. I'm also missing the handle for the hydraulic lift lever, and the knob for the choke. No biggie. They are both still available from Toro, the handle isn't cheap tho. The engine runs good, tho it does burn a little oil when it's cold but goes away when it warms. Don't know what was put in it for oil tho, or if it's maybe diluted with gas. Haven't had the chance to do anything with the engine yet. Also I noticed that when I turn on the key, all the lights come on (as they should) except for the oil. Don't know if the bulb is burned out or even if they are replaceable. Also have to replace one of the tail light lenses, as well as both bulbs, one of the headlight bulbs, and a couple of the gauge bulbs. Also need to fix/adjust the switch for the parking brake light. Again, minor issues. Overall, I am pretty happy with this machine so far. BTW, I have tried to put that 520H club thingy in my signature, but can't figure out how to do that on my iPad. Pics below.
  22. Repair fuel sender?

    The fuel gauge on my new (to me) 520H isn't working. The gauge is getting power and ground. If I ground the brown wire at the sending unit, I get FSD on the gauge needle, so I know the gauge itself is okay. I pulled the sending unit and get nothing from the white wire to ground no matter where the float is positioned (infinite ohms). If I test from where the white wire is soldered on over to where the bare wire wraps around to the first winding of the rheostat, I get continuity. But if I go from the white wire to the actual first wrap on the rheostat, I get nothing again. So it appears that the bare wire is broken between the where the white wire is soldered on and the first wrap on the rheostat. Of course it is on the back side where I can't get to it. Has anyone ever taken one of these apart and successfully repaired it? It appears that you would have to drill out the brass rivets that hold the restart part to the metal brackets, solder the broken wire, and replace the rivets with small bolts or something similar. I figure I have nothing to lose by trying. It's not working now anyway. My guess is that these are very expensive to replace. None on eBay right now. Any thoughts, encouragement, or otherwise? Thanks!
  23. Hello everyone, I NEED HELP! I came across a gentleman that is selling his whole Wheel Horse collection to clear out his garage. This is what he has: ($600) 93 520H, 1400hrs runs perfect, 48" deck. Torn seat. 20hp Onan. Has owned since new. He says it is a gas guzzler. ($1000) 01 520xi, 2889 hrs (key must have been left on). 20hp kohler. Looks in good shape. tight and shows little wear. Starts, runs fine. only a puff of smoke at initial start-up. minor Hydro noise, but it was 25 degrees out. comes with 78363 48" deck, 42" blower. ($500) additional 60" xi deck, clean, no rust, original ($1000) 268h with 360hrs in the best condition of the 3. ($1200) 52" Z-master zero-turn with 600 hrs. ($500) 02 520lxi for parts, running. ($3500) for everything above. I am upgrading, potentially from a Deere GT225 with around 500hrs. The GT is uncomfortable, and the 42" deck is small. I have hilly terrain and about an acre of grass. I need the tractor for snow removal and mowing only, in addition to hauling a trailer to/from the woods. I have a 1981 1710 Ford tractor with a FEL, PTO/3pt, and back blade for big jobs. Please steer me correctly. Tell me what to look for specifically, as I am new to Wheel Horse. Thanks for any/ALL input!!! -Eric
  24. New to the 520h. What should I be seeing for a vacuum reading on the gauge. Standing Reading at idle? What causes it to rise and or fall? Is this engine vacuum or a hydraulic vacuum? Thanks
  25. I have to say I never hoped to find a 520h and now another followed me home. 550 hours on the clock.Owner was asking $350.
