Here is my semi-restoration project. I Just cleaned mine up a little and stripped all the sheet metal and repainted it. I used IH red paint color. I purchased this 520H at an auction a year ago for$400 it has a rock solid 62" most deck. I also have a 2 stage blower for it. I am waiting for my new bar tires.
Thought I would share it here
I have recently bought a cheap old gearbox mainly for the cast hubs that the wheels bolt to, then I thought as it turns a little but can't change gear or anything like that it would be interesting to look inside!! Do they all look like this? Can it be brought back to life? It's now soaking in a tub of paraffin to see if it will clean up. It's a 4 speed with high and low ratios with a 1 1/8" axle, I think I read somewhere that there are two sizes of axle. Any thoughts?
Here is my 1977 C-160 in mid-restoration. She purrs like a kitten. They don't sell blades for this deck anymore (as far as I could find) so I bought some close and had a machine shop drill the extra holes to make them fit. I should see tomorrow how well that works out.
I'm in SE TX, looking for garden plow and tiller attachments for this sweet girl.
Hope you enjoy the pics!
