FEL on 520

Recommended Posts

Very nice!

Maybe I should put my loader on my 520 instead of the D-200!

I have had many small Loader in the last 15+ years, most on wheel horses, and by far the 520H with gear reduction steering & swept forward axles are my favorite. The D's are strong but maybe a bit clum'sy, and steering is always an issue with the D's.

Nice job Larry, as usual.  I have an Ark550 on my D200 and you are right. Steering is a bear.  Would the 550 be too large for a 520? I also have a 520xi that may do the trick.

 

I didn't realize that you had to be a member of the subgroup 520 club to post, in case anyone else is wondering why you can't post to this topic.

Todd, The 550 Ark will fit the 520's I  have ad a few in years gone by, I mounted them all, just make sure your uprights are as close to the rear wheels as possible, this helps take the strain off the front end when it rises the higher the loader shifts the wt.  to the rear wheel and that's where you want it.

      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.
