  1. About 30+ years ago my dad who is now 80 was working in a sheet metal (HACV) factory and decided to make himself a rear clevis hitch mounted scraper blade for his CC 1200 to repair our 1/4 mile long driveway after winter and rain storms, so with an old pair of cast iron plow shares he got his radius to break a piece of 12? gauge steel for the moldboard approx 6" tall by 48" long with 1/4"x2.5" flat bar for the wear edge (that was later upgraded to a car leaf spring), he also bent a piece of 3/16" into a "U" for the swivel mount to the moldboard then a 3/8"x2.25" flat bar for the lift/pull/swivel arm, finished off with the clevis to attach which he also drilled to be able to tilt for pulling side ditches, long story shortened, it worked very well for many years with my body being extra weight when necessary, after I moved out to find my own way he added brackets for extra weight, fast forward to the past few winters it sat outside the shed where he accidentally ran it over in the snow with my Kioti, so the last couple months I've been in the process of fixing it for him/myself and here's a few shots of the broken to fab to final (hopefully a bit better and easier to angle plus turn for pushing version) waiting on paint stages that I just finished up today... Father's Day, Jeff.
  2. Any one seen anything like this before??? Its a dual port I believe, which would make it 1600cc? Quirky for sure. Never heard it run. Have to wonder if there's enough air movement to keep the thing cooled. No shroud or fan........doubtful, IMO.
  3. Custom made one of a kind front weight hanger/ bumper, engraved for the 520H ,selling as shown sandblasted in the raw ready for your choice of paint/powder coat ,with attach-a-matic hitch rod and spacers to align to frame, will accommodate 3 43# cast iron suitcase weights very heavy duty in construction all 1/2" thick cold rolled steel TIG weld on front seams as well as bolted and MIG welded from behind, Weights NOT included shown to illustrate how this works on these tractors.
  4. Has anyone ever made their own hydraulic 3 point/front loader systems? I would really like to put one on my 414-8 but don't want to jump into anything without any knowledge. By the way I am new here and just now learning how the site works. Thanks and God Bless.
  5. New guy

    I'm new sorry but anybody like dual military engine horses ?
  6. Who has a customized/built 'worker' dump cart to show off? I'm hoping if I see some others, I will be get some ideas for my own. I have an old steel dump cart.... it was "custom" made (Frankenstein-ish from many parts) approx 40+ yrs ago, and my dad used it with his old gravely.. later with our 310-8, then later with my ZTR.... May have started life as a Gravely item, IDK. It is just a square cart, approx 3' x 5', x 1' deep... with 1 1/2" square pocket stake pockets in the corners, and a top hinged removable tailgate, 4.80x8 tires. I'll try to add a pic later. I want to restore it to some degree, still gonna be a worker. Want to clean up the rust, paint it WH red, new tires. I will create a removable front and sides that can insert into the stake pockets to increase the capacity for things like leaves and firewood. I'm thinking of PT decking for the side rails. Maybe a spray-in liner material for the inside? My goal is workable, durable, and decent looking!
  7. Hello on my kawasaki 227-5 17 hp single cylinder i was thinking about putting a straight through pipe on it and people time and time again were mentioning burnt or warped exhaust valves and i have no idea how bad this is or how common it is so i just want to know if i should or shouldn't straight pipe the engine thank you James see my other thread about tachometer gauges
  8. Heres my D-180 from 1975, that i have renovated and build some custom "things" on. For example new gastank, seat, lightning and stainless holders for them, 3-point hitch at front and back, hydraulics with 7 functions and its own pump, new bigger Ross steering box, side exhaust systems with mufflers etc. I have also built tools for it as a snowblade, a loader, counterweight and have also a forklift built going on.
  9. Tachometer

    Hello I have a Wheel-Horse 227-5 with the 17hp kawasaki single cylinder engine and was interested in putting a tachometer on it (just because i won't too) but i need a step by step guide as I'm not sure what exactly i need to do, also if anyone could advise on a good tach to use that would help a lot, while I'm at i thought that i might put a oil pressure/temperature gauge on it. thank you James
  10. Hey everyone. As you know I'm hot and heavy into wheel horses now and many of you have answered many of my questions and helped me TREMENDOUSLY. But I've finally decided to give my horse a paint job and I thought I'd post pictures along the way. Here's the engine cleaned,sanded, prepped and primed. This is the first thing I've done. :)

  14. Hello everyone!! A few weeks ago I was fortunate to stumble upon a pretty nice 312-8 with 675 hours. Much to my wife’s dismay, I drug it home but once she took it for a drive she was smiling from ear to ear. She actually said she liked it better than my 520. I kinda scratched my head and just said ok dear. Anyway, I decided I wanted to put 23x10.5-12 on the rear of my 312 instead of the 23x9.5-12 that is stock. I found a set of Goodyear tires without rims at a consignment sale that came home with me. Then the hunt for rims began….Low and behold I found a set of rims that my neighbor had laying around his garage. I was told they came off his CASE and he didn’t need them anymore. So tonight I decided to scuff them up and paint them metallic silver to cover up the red. I have yet to find an exact match to the factory silver WH put on their wheels that I am happy with. I have found though, if you have a nick in your factory rim, a Sharpie Metallic Silver marker is the best for the task of touching it up. IMHO. So my question is this: I blended a mix of metallic silver and Smoke Grey paint to produce the color of the rims below, do they look close enough for horse shoes? I can’t decide if I’m happy with the color or not or if I need to do a grey metallic. I’d appreciate any opinion. Thanks!! Below is also a pic of the 312 they wheels and tires are going on.
  15. I'm thinking of mounting farmall cub headlights (the thin looking ones) to my 753. I know they're not original wheel horse obviously and I'm usually a stickler with that type of deal but I think they would look good. Is this a bad idea in you're guys' opinion?
  16. I bought this 1960 400 from Taycotrains a couple years back now. I was missing a couple of the usual suspects, belt guard, throttle controls... I tracked down what I needed here and there and with the help of a couple RS members. Last fall I finally got around to disassembling the tractor and started to freshen things up. Currently I don't have access to a sand blaster so I used a combination of e-tank, chemical stripper sanding and wire brushes to get the parts down to clean metal for new paint. I've replaced some hardware as needed or just for personal preference. At the show this year I picked up a pair of '61 cast foot rests and cast brake pedal. There where two pieces that needed some repairs. First the hood had torn in two places where the rear tank strap was spot welded and second the hood stand was cut up at some point to accommodate a different engine. Learning as I went, I managed to weld the cracks from the tank straps without burning through the hood and when I was done (after I wiped the sweat from my face and unclenched my teeth) decided I didn't want to do any more welding on that thin original metal. One morning while having a coffee and perusing the forums I stumbled on Duke's RJ Hood stand modifications and decided I would do something similar. First, since I'm still tying to learn to weld, I wasn't going to modify an original part. I needed to build a RJ style hood stand that I could bolt onto the frame, then I could add some hood support and maybe even hang the tank from this structure instead of damaging the hood again. This is what I have so far...
  17. OK, I know hl 5 kits are really rare and expensive. I be seen guys just mount small headlights to the hood which I think looks pretty good but I know its not original wheel horse style. Are there any good alternatives or should I just wait for an hl-5 kit to turn up? Thanks in advance, Zane
  18. better than nothing I guess lol. Just figured id post this while im waiting on my wheels to dry. I got me some ag rears and tri rib fronts yay. Figured I would need them to pull my newest disc attachment. thanks for looking.
  19. Hello All. I have been looking around in my spare time. For rare, unique, coustimized, Different, coloured etc wheel horses. I've found some great ones out there. I was wondering do any of you have any pictures. Here's the ones I've found.....
  20. Three point hitches are handy & I've seen some nice ones put on Horse's here at RedSquare. Member "kpinnc" custom build stands out. Member "stevebo" 3PH is another. Those are just a couple off the top of my head, there have been several. I wanted to give it a shot...so I came up with this. 30 second 3PH installation. Step one. Step two Okay I cheated a little bit. It's a Koplin 3PH designed for ATV use, rated at 200 pounds lift/300 pounds downforce. Made to fit in a 2" reciever hitch & powered by an electric actuator. I seen it on Craigslist, haggled with the seller & went after it this morning. It fit's right in the 2" receiver hitch designed & built by member "smoreau".
  21. Hi Everyone, The Tranny in my 310-8 would not shift from high to low so I decided to "crack" it open. I'm sure many of you could quickly forecast the problem. Yes, the beloved Hi-Lo shifter was in 2 pieces! I had never dealt with this before but after researching it on this site it seems like a pretty common problem. I have 2 questions: First, has anyone had any success with a weld repair on this part. Second, has anyone proactively "beefed up" or extended the welds on this part to decrease the failure rate? It seems like the short weld bead ends at the thinnest part of the sheet metal component. It seems like If you extended the weld bead further around the circumference of the peg then it would reduce stress and solve the failure problem. The only thing that I'm not sure about is if there would be enough clearance with the extra weld bead around the gears? Any help would be greatly appreciated! John

  23. Hi, has anyone ever built a cab for a wheel horse, and if so are there any pic or diagrams? Thanks Joe
  24. On the old WH forum, my DIY driveway dresser was described, below- Since this post, it might be of interest to know that it works just fine, even more so with an improvement where the 21 teeth were extended to a total height above the tire surface of 2-1/2" In addition, about 80 lbs. of additional weight was added to the assembly. It does keep the weeds down. Tom
  25. So awhile back I posted a topic called " Modification Dilema" where I asked whether or not I should cut the fenders on my 1054 to accommodate some taller tires. In the end I ended up cutting the fenders, only to realize later that the tire were way to damn tall as they stood at 32" compared to the factory 26/27". About a month later the 12hp Kohler I had put on it started to smoke like a chimney and I knew it was time for a total redo of the machine. Jump to a couple weeks ago I began pulling it all apart for a fresh coat of paint, newer 16hp twin Briggs, swapping the 4 lug hubs for a pair of 5 lugs, and finally a set of 26x12x12 Ags. The engine proved to be the biggest challenge as it was way longer and wider than the original Kohler. For the width I bolted on a piece of angle to the side of the frame, but for the length I had to make brackets to extend the 50# grill 5" ahead. For extra support and to have a place to bolt on the hood I ran a piece of 1" flat stock from the grill to the tower. With all the modifications came a drastic new look. Let me know what y'all think. If I ever get decals made up for it I'm gonna call it a Wheel Horse 1054 "Low Boy"
