I can't seem to locate the oil plug on the transmission/hydro of the C161 auto.  Can someone please show me where the heck it is!?!?  I would think it was right on the bottom somewhere near the filter but I do not see or feel anything that looks like a oil drain.....


Thanks for your help,

It is a 1/4" allen plug.  Located just to the left of the piece of the hitch that goes forward under the tranny.  it is usually filled up with dirt so it is hard to see and it doesn't stick out much at all

      For Sale; C160A runs good, good hydro. Recently installed rebuilt, repairable hydraulic lift cylinder, front axle pin is new. Tires have cracking but hold air. Battery is weak. Seat has a couple tears. 1822hrs on the meter.
      I have another hood with straighter metal but no decals, you can pick the one you want.
      Another question, was the transmission mount repaired? Yes, I included a photo of the repair. Looks like it was done some time ago.
      I have to many projects if interest send a pm.
      I apologize, I didn't have my glasses on when I looked at the hour meter, I changed it from 1600 + to 1822 actual.

      When we try to push the machine with out it running or in gear. The rear wheels are locking up. Is there a release valve? I have to push it from the storage area to the shop, the motor is rapping.  
      Thank you

      I had downloaded the hydro manual for the Sundstrands SM 492-4206 and as I was putting it in a binder I noticed that pages #18 and #36 were/are missing.
      My question is does anyone have them??  If they are the notorious "PAGE LEFT BLANK" I guess it wouldn't matter BUT if not they might come in handy.
      Just askin'

      Just hauled a couple more home and the 2XX already has me confused.  I read the engine tag, saw it was a 20hp and promptly decided it must be a 270H.  Model and Serial was thought to be a 269H according to:
      Model 72102 Ser 8900682 
      Engine:  Kohler CV20S, SPEC: 65531  Serial 2801920751
      I found this on this forum which indicates it's a 1998 269H, but with a CV19S and this one has a CV20S

      I also found it interesting that it has an electric powered hydro pump to lift it's 52" recycler deck.  First 52" WH deck I've seen.  Came with a good hood off another 26X, other than the usual lower most part of the grill is gone.  Problem is it needs a drive belt and I gather that's 4-6 hours of pure fun!  Any thoughts and tips appreciated!
      Oh, that WH partially riding on the cab is a 312H.  Tag is missing and I didn't get the engine tag number.  Got funky little wheels on the front.  Not sure I like that or if that's going to be good for a snowblower, but she's slated for use in the snow, with either blower or blade.

      I have developed a kit that allows a Wheel Horse / Toro hydrostatic tractor to be operated by a pedal on the right side of the tractor. The original forward/reverse lever can be retained or removed. The kit includes everything needed to install the pedal kit and installation is simple with the help of a downloadable installation manual. Additionally, only one (1) 1/4" hole will need to be drilled which can be done by a hand drill. No other drilling or cutting will be necessary. Any tractor with this kit can be converted back to stock without any visible evidence that kit was installed. However, you'll never want to do that

      The kit operates very simply and similar to modern tractors. When the pedal is pushed forwards the tractor will move forwards. When the reverse pedal is pressed downwards, the tractor will moved in reverse. If the operator takes his foot of the pedal at any time, the pedal will automatically center itself and the hydrostatic transmission will return to neutral (stop). This enables the operator to use both hands on the steering wheel or one hand on the wheel and the other operating an attachment like a snow blower, plow, etc.

      The foot pedal is custom cast in Aluminum, uses brass bushings to minimize wear, and it closely matches the OEM Wheel Horse BRAKE pedal commonly found on 8-speed manual transmission tractors. Modifications were done to the pedal to add the reverse pedal and adapt the pedal to the rest of the kit. For the most part, the pedal looks like it was designed and manufactured by Wheel Horse / Toro. Additionally, a grease fitting has been adapted to the pedal to further minimize wear and tear and if the brass bushings ever wear out they are fully replaceable without having to buy a whole new pedal. 

      The pedal kit fits the following series tractors with Eaton hydrostatic transmissions: C-1X5, 300, 400, 500. 
      My kit can be adapted to older hydrostatic tractors with the Sundstrand transmission, however, you will need to find an updated hydro cam commonly found on ebay. Message me for more information. 
      Here is a link where you can download the installation manual: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zp8ty4oxctzvt8a/Wheel Horse Hydro Foot Pedal Instructions V3.pdf?dl=0
      I am selling these kits for $250 shipped to anywhere in the United States. I offer multi order discounts as well. I will also sell to other countries for additional shipping charges to be determined.
      If anyone has any questions please feel free to PM me or post your question here and I will be glad to help. Or you can email me at mattdarling02@hotmail.com.

      Below are pictures of the complete kit and the pedal installed on the tractor. Some modifications have been made since these pictures were taken. For example, the reverse pedal is now cast in aluminum instead of the steel pedal shown below.
