    I wanted to be the first to tell you that I have launched a new website that is appealing to the eye, easy to navigate, has an easy checkout process, and is user friendly to everyone. My new online store is Wheel Horse Parts and More. This is a new adventure for me and my web designers are asking for individual feedback as we continue to tweak the new site. In case you did not notice, I have made a slight change to my username, which is now "wheelhorseman." I invite each one of you to visit my new website. Here is a http://www.wheelhorsepartsandmore.com

    The front weight hanger when using rear mounted attachments (tiller, box blade, moldboard plow) , which I modified to fit the rear for snowblowing/plowing and my custom engraved wheel weight center caps, Jeff.

    I have to admit the same what Bob mentioned, Matts foot pedal kit was the best I ever did. BTW fellas some great ingenious ideas that have been posted by everyone, this is leaning on being one of my favorite threads I have read, keep those ideas and pictures coming in..... Glenn

    I'm thinking one of the features should be Favorite Wheel Horse Modifications. It looks like there is a lot of interest based on the interest and responses of this thread.

    I painted my replacement trans yesterday and let it dry over night, installed it today, ( quite a job my first time swaping a transmission in a wheel horse). I fired up the 753 this evening to test out the trans and all the gears work great. I know the paint color is a little off but it was, more for protection than looks. Am going to try to rebuild the old transmission eventually in case I need it for another horse.

    @Ed Kennell I hope you are bringing your Rat rod or what you call your latest build. The one where wide bodied members will not fit.

    @Ed Kennell I think Ed has been holding out on all his engineering skills , he needs to bring step by step pictures to the Big Show and teach a class. FEL my main I wish I had. I did put an electric actuator on the rear of my 310-8 to operate the clevis hitch . If I have time before the show I will post pictures of my 416-8 "What the What" ( notice I cleaned that phase up a bit ) @JPWH needs to provide more details on that rear blade .

    Black metal trailers get hot themselves, aluminum trailers act a bit like a mirror and burn your face off instead... Very much so. I have a 2016 Aluma Trailer, 5x8. I LOVE it. It is a small lighter duty one for hauling around with my car (no HD axle on it), but it is built tough. It only weighs about 360lbs. I can push it around the yard with ease. Things to note from towing with it for a year and a half or so: - If you have any metal parts loaded on, put down a rubber truck mat or piece of thin wood first. The metal rubbing will put big divots in the soft aluminum deck. - The bifold gate is GREAT for wind load, but on my trailer at least it is a bit shorter than I would like it. - It tows and backs up great. Yes it bounces around when unloaded, but my old steel one did when it was empty too. - As I stated above, the trailer itself does not get that hot in the sun, but when you stand on or near it you feel like you are ON the face of the sun. - I dont like how they have the rear gate support arms. They use hairpin clips, which arent terrible, but then the arms dont store in place when your fold the gate down, so you have to remove them and store them somewhere. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. When I get a truck again, I will probably save up for a bigger version but they are pricey. -

    I was starting to load the trailer this morning and I thought, why push the 401 up the ramp if I can get it running. The PO said it hadn't run for about three years, so I spent an hour or so cleaning the points and carburetor, draining the stale gas, and putting in a new plug, The 4 grandson come over on Wednesdays, and the 3 youngest took time from basketball to watch old grandpa work on the K91. Little did I know that my wife was also in the audience with my phone taking pictures. And with that, success! Runs great, purrs like a kitten. She's also pretty handy with the video as well. Looks like I'm going to be asking a little more for this one at the show.

    Thanks for the interest. Look in my Raider 12 modifications current build. I think you'll find what you are looking for.

    Great idea for the plow/blower light, but I think some of the models in the 1960's came equipped with a 12V plug adaptor, or as it was known then - cigarette lighter. For me the best Mod has been buying a front hitch that just drops into the tach-o-matic. Way easier to move a trailer around while facing it and with the pivot point right by the steering wheels. It's just like picking it up by the tongue and walking with it, except way easier on the back!

    Got to thinking - What are your favorite modifications that you have made to your WH tractor(s) that made them more usable, practical or just plain better? My goal with this thread is simple - Perhaps a bit of bragging by you all will help others who are seeking similar solutions and just haven't figured it out or thought of it yet... Of course - include pictures please... Two of my simple but favorites: A power plug for easy plug in power and a rear spot light for night time snow plowing...

    I've been using BG for over a year now. Have not found anything it can't tackle. For years Kroil was my go-to penentrant. BG puts it to shame and Kroil is on the back of the shelf.

    Won't make it this year unless someone passing thru Kokomo has room for me and the horse! Probably make it in a couple years when I get vaca time at the new job. Waiting on a start date right now. Atleast I will be able to afford to get more WH stuff, even if I cant make the show. Have fun and post lots of pics!! Mike

    I didn't make it myself, but the best thing I have done to my 416-H horse is to install Matt's foot pedal motion control.

    We assume,,,that Ed K_____ll wi;; be bringing the Rottotiller,,front yard driller,,belt driven thing to the show,,,,,,, it can be displayed in the (((( Evolution of Cultiviccation ))))) section in the lower field,,,,, and based on the vote in this thread,,,,,,,,,It looks like Front end Loaders/Jonny Buckets,,,should be the feature tractors next year. We don't need a 3rd year of Modifieds,,,,,,,,, just IMHO Howard in Va

    Ed has offered up a myriad of meritorious modifications that he has crafted, but for me the Front End Loader is the biggest work (back) saver I have ever found.

    A few of mine.... The plow frame mounted tiller and ball hitch. The plow frame stabilizer. The sun top. The mole killer. Deck roller springs. Forward/reverse hydro foot control. Anti scalping rollers on 42" decks. Heat collector for snow blower cab. Snow blower auger rubber paddles. Snow blower chute controls.
