The wife said I need a hobby... C160 Auto
By Emmy's Dad
New to the forum here so forgive me if this question has been already.
A while ago I was given an '87 John Deere 214 from my wife's grandpa and it started an interest in restoration. Lucky for me, it had been garage kept for the last 15 years.
Long story short, a friend of mine got to talking and he said he has an old Wheel Horse C-160 Automatic that he was going to scrap. He said if I can come get it, I can have it for free. Seems like the tractor is mostly complete other than the headlight assy., gas tank, and a cover in the center where the shifter would go on the 8-speed models. Not sure of the year but is has hydraulic lift 48" deck (some rusted spots) and seems to be in decent shape for being outside for the last 5 years.
My main question is "does anyone have any pictures I can compare to so I can see what else is missing?"
Trying to figure out if it's worth my time.
Thanks for the help!
New year needs help with Air Horse
Recently purchased a 1973 14hp Automatic airhorse like the one in the pic here. Model is 1-0435. Need it as tug for my airplane.
It won't go in reverse or forward anymore. Everything looks fine. The local Toro shop says the transmission has gone and no parts available anymore. I see it uses a Sundstrand 90-1136.
Any ideas on repairs. I am not in a position to repair myself. Just. Looking to get replacement or substitute parts/sub assemblies for the local toro shop to effect a repair.
