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.

I am replacing the needle bearing in the axle of my c160 auto. I have found the B-1816 bearings on motion industries. There are two listed, the B-1816 and B-1816OH (Oil hole). Am I correct in thinking the normal one is correct?
Also what thickness of gasket paper is best for making the gaskets for the transmission case and motor to case?
Thanks in advance. Thomas
Well, most of the regulars here are aware I will be relocating this Spring/Summer. I had hoped to take the remaining collection of tractors with me. However more and more it is becoming obvious that this plan wont work out for numerous reasons. As such, once I make up my mind as to which one to keep, I will be posting the remainder as well as most parts etc up for sale in the Forum Classifieds and CL.
As I hope shows in poll info, I have 2 Stage Blower, Restored 48 & 60 inch(195) decks, 54 inch blade, GT14 style Tiller and a project Sickle Bar. The Sickle BAr can likely be made to work on the GT14 style tractors and the C160.
I enjoy working on them but as I get older I may not have time or ability to do so. As such, maintenance and parts and ease of use of a single tractor are part of the equation.
A couple of these I have poured a lot of time into but I am not emotionally tied to them and I believe if I relocate back east where Grass and tractor need becomes more necessary, I can re-create them.
So help me out with my decision.
A couple pics of the beasts in question:
I bought it in 1983 from my neighbor. He was the manger of a large truck, and wheel horse tractor, sales & service company and he bought it new. He had it maintained at his shop. I only used it for mowing my lawn from 83 to about 2011. It's been sitting in a dry shed, no gas or battery, for the last 4 years. I maintained myself it since 83, changing oil about every ten hours, transmission drained and filter changed once a year. Regular greasing of all bearings. I was thinking of restoring it so replaced most front and mid hitch parts with NOS parts over the last 4 years. Also new hoses, new front tires and tie rods. Only thing missing is original cig litter knob. Just needs fresh gas and a new battery. Also 48" mower deck in very good mechanical condition. Many spare parts, including 3 brand new Wheel Horse bearings. Good tractor for restoration.
I've been busy in my spare time working on this hitch idea. I bought an unfinished sleeve hitch from Wheelhorseman1000 (btw, Lowell makes a great product and sells them too cheap). The cylinder is a factory Horse deck lift cylinder. I'm waiting for my o-ring kits to rebuild and stack two more spool valves (total of three valves). Then after I build some hoses, I'm all set. This has been an enjoyable project.
