    I picked up this 1974 C-160 awhile back, I got it to pull the 16hp Kohler for a different mower project, but as time passed I had to bring this baby back to life! Add Ons 16HP Briggs Vanguard V-twin Wheel Horse Plow 5.25" Pulley Off a Hydro Plow/Hitch bracket from Ebay user randy3501972 (thanks if you're on here!) Homemade trailer, can be pulled by tractor, or can load tractor in trailer and pull with truck. Bench seats double as loading ramps. Cheers, Who else has a winter project going?

    Your hose end swivels that are leaking are crimped on and you would have to cut them off. After that the hose would be too short. Also they are probably SAE #5 O ring Boss (ORB) fittings. Finding hose end 90 degree swivels is near impossible ( I have been looking for 3-4 years now) SAE#5 fell out of favor many years ago.. You have to use adapters like SAE #5 ORB to JIC 37 Flare male. Then a JIC 37 female hose end. As pointed out by Richard above, Lowell has figured that out and would be the best way to continue.

    In both cases I thing Lowell @wheelhorseman will be your best bet for repair parts.

    I have done 3 of them. They were soldered and that is how I did the replacements.It was relatively simple and all three wee successful on the first try with no leaks. The fact that the replacements I found were the exact size made it also easy.

    It's a lot about values - not that today's generations don't have them, but they don't take those values as seriously as the older generations that lived through those times. When I was young we were corrected away from disrespectful behavior quickly, not just by parents , but everyone and anyone. Parents did their job better - that's obvious. Now they let social media teach their kids, bad idea and lazy in a way on their part. I don't think he understood what he was doing - although anyone from the older generations never would have done such a thing - it was a value taught deeply to them when they were young and these days things are a lot less stern in how they are taught. I'm glad he won - he's done such an amazing job and has tried to represent his country in his way, the other stuff is noise until the courts decide - who knows. Personally - if those athletes want to display their flag at the end of a competition that's fine - but do it with a small one on a stick , don't wrap a 3x5 around yourself like some cape of a trophy - to me you didn't earn it .

    i actually just finished this same process last month. I have a walker mower that popped the magnum 16. The magnums 16s are like a unicorn to find, so I got a K341, bored it from age, and swapped it all over. Using some advice via gardentractor pulling tips, i didnt use the balancer gears because like he said, they explode and this is what did my magnum 16 in. I also had to cut down the block where oil pan mounted to make it a narrow base. All in all, it worked out well.

    Correct - Lowell does have the swivel #5 ORB ends, or did the last time we communicated via messenger. New hoses and a valve rebuild kit will stop those issues. I replaced the hoses on my 16 Auto years ago - now the valve itself is leaking pretty good and I have to get a kit to rebuild it from Lowell myself - keep forgetting to order one. When I did the hoses I used (4) #5 ORB to JIC straight adapters and ran straight end hoses off the valve side. The ones that supply the valve off the transmission can be tricky since they are the 90* swivel type and there isn't much room to the fender on the 16 Auto - they really need to be 90* directly off the hose with no adapter. Can't recall now what is on the cylinder lines at the cylinder end right , think one was straight and the other 45* or something...I can look later on today. Sarge

    I have a GT1100 setting in my bone yard. It did run when parked but was weak. I can try to take a few pics today of the carburetor and linkage assy. I can sell your some of the parts if you need them. let me know I added these pictures, probably not much help. If you need me to I can take it apart.

    First of all find a new mechanic. Governors are stupid easy to put back together, so why this guy couldn’t figure it out who knows. Look for an engine manual, you will prolly be able to put it together yourself...

    The red washer will go on the nut that holds the float bowl on. Be sure to soak the carb. in some Barryman's Carb. Cleaner (get it at any auto parts store or even Wallyworld) and blow out all of the passages. There are some extremely small passages that will foul up a carb. if not cleaned.

    It may take me a while to find it. I kind of found it by accident a couple of years ago. It was basically a simple website with a PDF list on it. Seems run by a single guy. I called in the order and when received you send him the payment (Incredible now a days). With the order he sent me a small catalogue that I know it is here somewhere. Having said all of that, I bought 6 necks and caps. I used 3 necks and all of the caps. I have 3 necks left. Haven't had a need for them since . I like to have these things around that is why I never get one of anything, however if any one is desperate for them (I know that when you need this there is nothing else that will fix it) I am willing to part with them. There will be no charge, they were ridiculously inexpensive. First come first serve basis of course.One per call so others can save their tanks.

    You will need to build or buy a sub frame that will attach the loader to the tractor.

    First, NEVER go back to that shop! Withe these manuals for your tractor and engine you or friend should be able to get it back together.

    Thats the first thing I thought of Dan ... getting the right combo of flux, heat, solder and clean metal would be tricky but doable. 'specially with a tank that Lane piced. A couple of the tanks that I messed with that's what appeared how the 1/8 npt bottom bung was attached? Or brazed??? Bet a good welder could tig one in? Maybe overlay a good base sheet metal to get back into a good area of the tank Lane

    There is actually someone out there that makes the correct neck. It is a supplier of hit&miss engine parts. I will look for the information and post it.

    I contacted them last year about this. I suggested that there’s a market out there for the rolled threaded filler necks and caps used on many old lawnmower/garden tractor gas tanks. Maybe if they were to get more requests they’d start producing them.

    I know a lot of people would not agree with me, but I think having the draft again would change our young people for the better - I have a grandson who was on the wrong road and I talked him into joining the Marines..he didn't like me for awhile, but he is a 40 year old example of an upstanding Christian husband, father and community leader....wouldn 't have happened without the service...

    When draining the transmission be sure to jack up the front end. There is a hump in the middle of the casting that will prevent some of the old fluid from emptying.
