  1. Hello all. I spent about 30 minutes sorting through thousands of topics related to "high idle" but none of which answered my question, so apologies to all if this is a repeat. I recently bought a C161 (8 speed manual) with a Briggs & Stratton 18hp twin. According to Briggs' manual they recommend idle to be set at 1400rpm. I'm not claiming to be smarter than the engineers who designed it, but this seems incredibly high and wasteful on gas. Realistically, a tractor engine isn't spending a lot of time idling (not like a car stuck in traffic or at a light) but it's more of an annoyance than anything. My question is, does anyone know 1.) why it's idle is so high, and 2.) has anyone tinkered with it to get it lower-without compromising other performance aspects of the engine? All my personal preferences in relation to idle speed aside, the engine runs like a top (knock on wood). Thanks to all for your help.
  2. I have a wheel horse c161 Hydro, and I want to put on a stack type exhaust as the muffler that is currently on it appears to be to large and burns the paint on one side of the hood, what will I need to do this job, such as pipe size and stuff. The picture is what I want my muffler and pipe to look like, it is not my tractor
  3. I bought a C-161 last year which I knew would need body off restoration. I did not get the priority job of remodeling the wifes kitchen done in time to tackle before we got to grass season. It runs well now that I have replaced starter...and flywheel (don't ask why on the flywheel ) and I had hoped to use it to mow this summer and resto it over winter. But It has a gas leak. I fixed one leak which I had hoped was the only leak by replacing the grommet. This bigger leak is on bottom. There are two indentations. Might have been slightly threaded a long time ago to hold it in place. Question is....Do any of you know what type of plastic are these made of? Will the epoxy glues at auto parts box stores adhere to it? Suggestions? Thanks in advance. Aldon
  4. C161 Automatic in UK

    I have just joined! My first foray into machinery. I have had trouble with the power - only running at full choke and even then with greatly reduced power - replaced the fuel line and filter - just rebuilt the carb - wondering if there is a UK supplier of Kohler parts as I am having to buy stuff from the USA. Really want to get hold of a new air filter plate... I hope to restore the whole thing to its former glory. Any tips gladly received. Will post pics of my beast when it stops raining!
  5. You may have seen my "scrap yard save" thread that I posted last night. Well I also done a little tractor swapping with some tractor buddies and ended up with these Wheel Horse tractors. A C161 hydro and a best I can tell 68 Raider 12 ( I haven't ran the tag on it yet.). Also got a nice 42 inch RD deck and a nice tiller. Both tractors seem to be in very good shape mechanically. The Raider is missing the hood and engine but it did come with a good K321 14HP long block. The 161 needs a little wiring work and an axle seal.
