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

You do not need the oil hole.  The case halves of the transaxle use a thin gasket (1/64" .369mm??)  I will have to go measure the hydro motor to case gasket in the morning.

Thanks for the reply. I have found 0.4 or 0.5mm gasket paper for sale on eBay would that be suitable? I assume the thickness of gasket affects the endfliat on the shafts in the transmission?

As you're located in UK, and you are possibly only replacing the Axle Bearings, fit may be worth considering obtaining your Bearings in the UK - LINK -  .

As for the Trans Gasket, 0.4mm max as suggested would keep the End Float close to it's original dimension. Genuine ones here are expensive, so I'll also cut my own..

I've also got a full bearing replacement to do on an 8 speed on my 'Job List'. Have most of the Bearings, and the Closed End Full Compliment Needle Bearings are very expensive here.

Hope it goes well for you.

good luck - as Richard says just shop around for the axle bearing. Plenty of people sell them in the UK.

 

I never thought about end float Richard - I think my C-101 probably has at least 1mm thick gasket....:o

I’m going to change seals and gasket on a 8 speed at the same time to combine shipping, I’m not going to change the bearings as they seem ok. I thought shipping to uk was reasonable for $10.

Sorry thisi took so long...had to plow snow again this morning.  The Hydro motor to transaxle gasket is .74mm (or 1/32" gasket material) it is thicker than the  case gasket.

Same reason for me on the 8 Speed, I thought I'd just clean it out, fix the previous owner's repair errors and change the Gasket n Seals, but have since suspected (5 years) a tired Axle Bearing for a returning very slow weep on R/H side (0.015" up down movement  under load).So they are all coming out if any sign of wear.

 

$10.00 Is unbelievably cheap !. I suppose it depends on how much you're purchasing from them, but be sure you are prepared for Import Duty and Charges, it can double your costs.

Good Luck and would like to know how you get on.

      I have at least 7 hubs on different tractors that I would like to add a second set screw to.
       
      I have an older but good quality floor model drill press.
      I have the tap set.
      I don't recall ever using the tap set to do anything other than clean out threads. Not make my own thread set.
       
      Can anybody give any particular advice?

      I'm selling my 1975 C160 Automatic because I'm moving in a different direction.
      It is in nice used condition and runs excellent and the hydro is strong.

      It does smoke for a second or two when cold. But It doesn't appear to burn any oil between changes.
      I have a big list of new items I installed.
      All 4 tie rods and connecting rods from WheelHorseman 1000

      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.

      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.
