    Did a little TLC on the 855 today. it had duals when I bought it but I had to take the outers off to load. the inter was 8.5 x 12 and the outer was a 6 x 12. also found out the inters were not loaded so I had a pair of loaded 6 x 12 so I put both sets on and some hub caps I had laying around. also put a more comfortable seat on. still got to put some counter weight on back & clean up

    Just wanted to show off my new Toy. I think it's my fathers day gift. It was at a auction today. Wasn't going to go because I didn't think I could afford it but my dear sweet wife said you never know & told me to go anyway. It's a 855 with a Freeman Pony Loader.

    Well it's been awhile since I dust these beauties off. Between remodeling my house,landscaping,Working 2 jobs and chasing my 1 year and 3 year old around today I had some time to get some of my wheel horses out. The 3 cream puffs have less then 300 hours on them each and time to work them a little. Anyways wash and clean.

    I got the news that my blood counts have stabilized and I wouldn't need another transfusion today. After seven units of blood and three units of platelets since Thursday this was very good news for me.

    I thought I ought to start a thread to show progress with my rescue horse. It is a 1972 800 3 speed that was destined to go to scrap. It seems that a number of people had had a go at it and given up without ever getting to the bottom of the problem. As the coil appeared to be missing I was guessing a lack of spark might be in there somewhere. Well the coil turned up in amongst the leaves in the gap under the rear mudguards on top of the transaxle. I took it and the battery to the workshop. The battery turned out to be U/S so (new one on order). I tested the coil and it sparked as it should. This afternoon I had a bit of time so I whipped the points off, they were pitted....(new points and condenser on order), for now I have just tickled them up a bit, gapped them and connected all the bits up. I rigged a starter battery and turned it over.... I have a nice fat spark! There is no fuel in the tank so I need to take mrs Rog out shopping later... I will get some fuel and video my first try at a start up, I will be back

    I needed a new push mower since my old one completely rusted out around the rear wheels. I had looked into a string trimmer mower, and while very handy for trimming, not much for what I needed (thank you all for the feedback on that). Well, today I found a big box by the garage. It's a new Toro and self propelled! I am used to the very cheap mowers which take some effort, but this one is like driving a Lincoln after getting out of a Yugo! Grass is too wet to mow, but I was able to use it around the steep hills by the pool and it worked great! So happy having the self propelled.

    My introduction to Wheel Horse began in the summer of 1997, immediately following high school graduation. I worked at Howard's in Coudersport (former Tucker's) until November of that year. I assembled new units, and did maintenance & repair on Kubota, Wheel Horse & Ski-doo equipment. I remember seeing pictures of the 520xi that fall. If I recall, we got one unit in the fall just before I left. I always thought they were pretty neat. Well I got one last week in ROUGH shape. So far I got it un-stuck ( motor was ceased) & running well. I have some questions on this machine, and after reviewing several sites & pages, this looks to be the best "spot" For "street cred" I have attached a link to my shop video. Karl J. Crowell (say Kroll) Cheers ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gsPayJAGZU

    Thank you for the cap nut solution - I've used 3/8" for my hood and 1/2" for the seat hinge so far with great results!

    Still haven't put the tins on yet. Have to wet sand them and see how they come. In the mean while I was able to pick up an original JD three point hitch for it. Took awhile to find one as they sell for huge money. I was able to pick this one up for a great price and it's in great shape. I'm going to add the rear hydraulic connection setup for future rear attachments.

    My Horse Barn is located (in Henry County) right where the Ozarks meet the Plains....does that make me "bi-local"? BTW..I maintain a listing of WH guys in MO and KS.....and since 1972 have acquired a "secret knowledge" of several WH's hidden in the Ozark barns!!!

    I thought you might like a bit more background info on Multipower in Effingham. When my father worked there as a salesman way back in the 1960's they were: Mid Surrey Garden Centre. It was horses from there that I used to drive at the Surrey show. I drove past the premises around 8 years ago and they were still in business as multipower machinery, but a quick look on street view shows that they are now MPS garden machinery.

    I just now read that to my wife. She asked me if there was a certain emoticon I could post for her. Well, actually she showed me. I told her no because this is a family oriented forum. Glen, I'll introduce her to you at the show.

    Prior to the wide spread use of chemical weed control cultivating was a big part of farming. Tractors were specially designed with high clearance to avoid damaging the crops while getting rid of weeds. Cultivating is actually making a comeback amongst the organic grower crowds and some of the 50-60 year old tractors and their cultivators are getting back into use.

    I love it when a plan comes together. The knowledge on this forum is amazing. The best part is that even though folks are all over the country, it is like having a nice neighbor that can help.
