Greetings fellow tractor enthusiasts,
I thought I'd chime in and introduce myself. I finally talked my dear Father out of his WH 520H (and 44" Snowblower, and 42" mower). 
This fine machine has a whopping 180hrs on it.
I blew snow all Winter in style, with the only problem being the safety switch under the seat not wanting to depress in cold weather.
This week I've been detaching the blower and attempting to resurrect the mower deck. It's been outside for yrs and not used in a very long time.
I seem to be missing the front belt pulley and faceplate to complete the connection (I have him looking for it).
I look forward to learning and sharing info here on Red Square. Thx

Is 4beers by chance a reference to an old Van Halen story?

Wow. Thx for the welcome(s) !
I'm in Margaretville, NY.
In the habit of always saying "Upstate", so not to be confused w/ the rat race of NYC.
Didn't realize there were so many members from up here.

I'm still grounded and without front pulley (Mule?) for mower deck while Pop looks for it at his (numerous) garages for it. Thanks for the offer Duane. I may have to take you up on it. I'm gonna need a sickle bar attachment soon if I don't get mowing. :eek:

Hi, 4beers, I am new here too, and new to WH tractors, but I fear I'm hooked already! I used to spend weekends at a friend's cabin close to Margaretville years ago.

Welcome. You actually have a 48" deck and I see the front sway bracket for the snow blower which is a good thing.

      My 520H blow out a valve seat.  Any suggestions on a new motor or should I have the seat repaired?

      Is this the correct setting to test the battery or voltage output? I tested four different batteries. The reading is saying about 17.0-17.5 on all 4 batteries.

      Hello new to the forum I just bought a 1997 520h with 387 hrs  has a snowblower single stage and mower deck its in real good shape  i think it just needs a little maintaince.  Engine surges hopefully just needs a carb and tank cleaning. Headlights don t work and need to replace a idler sprocket on blower and possible have to replace the lift seal because the snowblower won't stay up it slowly lowers not sure if that's normal because if weight or needs to be fixed. Overall very happy I bought it  I grew up using my father's 520h

      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

      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.
