Straight From the Horse's Mouth - The final chapter

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I am new here and just picked up my first Horse. I am in the process of restoring it and need a few parts I have a 1968 commando 8 I was driving around in rural Indiana and came across a mower salvage yard they have a wheel horse 607 in great shape. I am curious if the drive belt cover from the 607 will fit my command 8. I looked at both owners manual and both part numbers are different but they are both short frame tractors I know other models have the same part number that will work any help will be appreciated. Pictures below are from when I got it last year and the other is almost restored.

I believe the 607 had a Tecumseh engine, and the Commando has a Kohler. The difference may be in where the cover attaches to the engine.

When I was looking at it I believe it has a 6hp kohler

Bob's right, thats exactly the difference. Save yourself the headache and get the right belt guard that will bolt right up. 855/856/857/ another commando 8.... that's what to look for.
