What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

Recommended Posts

@WHX14 those look like OTR’s to me....I think you’ll like them. They’re a softer compound and bit really good :handgestures-thumbupright: .

Yes they are OTR's Jeff and a softer rubber. The other Jeff  twisted my arm to get a set cause  he  got a set for his 520. Gotta keep up with the Hillbillies ya know!

Sorry about our other thread @Tgtack it was a good one.

Electric. It's been about 4 years. I noticed it was getting quieter. Started cleaning up the driveway and the tractor died mid push. Had to drag it into the garage. Fuel barely dribbles out of the line at the carb. Flows good down by the pump from gravity.

Went to Napa and grabbed one. This one pumps. Got the 160 running and finished up the driveway clean up but it's not right. I think there's some carbunkles in the carb. It sat pretty much since the show 2 years ago. Carb's been apart a few times already and it looks like it's going under the knife again. I need 1/4 choke to run it at full throttle. Then no choke at half. I use non ethanol  in it but storing it with fuel in the bowl may have been an issue. I hate working with gas in the winter!

Ordered a regulator, some gaskets, and a few new ignition parts for the K181 on the 857.  Hopefully I'll feel like putting them on when they get here.  BTW, sure am glad this thread is back!

Nuttin exciting here....checked the oil and topped off the fuel to be prepared for a Tue-Wed snow fall. To cold to be tinkering in the garage!!

Pushed another 3" of snow out of the drive and widened (the streets) for 3 blocks around the neighborhood and cleared the snow from the fire department doors.

Pulled the regulator off of the Charger or should i say "Non-Charger" 12 in hopes of finding one at Flywheelers show this weekend. Also still looking for Plow Blade. Maybe find one of those also. It just may get cold enough to snow here this winter!

You know how it goes @squonk start messing with fuel lines and all the crud shakes loose! Them boys at NAPA want you to step behind the counter just for old times sake? :lol:

Worked a little on the 12 hp tonite again  then figured out what I forgot and promptly threw in the towel. Can you spot it (hint this is a magneto motor).

Can’t wait to see this one come together!  I think I’ll have to arrange some time in my schedule to come over and turn a few wrenches with you on this plow mule!  Dan is a maestro when it comes to these and I’m looking forward to the symphony...

New tires on the 1257, pulled (stubborn) hubs and added a second set screw.

Those sure look sharp on there Jim.  I’m looking forward to seeing them in real world action where they belong—in the furrows!:auto-layrubber:

I'll stop over and help, or supervise or just get in the way in general! :lol:

What's the matter with those hubs in that pile @Achto that you want to make steel ones? ? Keyways shot? I do have that fresh 5060 six seed transaxle with full length keys if you need it?
