  1. First order is find a D160 with a bad hydro or trans in it. My dad has one but thats his baby so thats out my neighbor has one in rough shape so I'll see what I can do with that
  2. Well looks like I'll have to start putting it into motion! I still want to keep as much as I can to be able to mow/push snow with it. Adding power steering is a thought too but that seems simple enough.
  3. Hi all! I'm hoping you'll all give me some insight/thoughts on this. I'm looking to customize a D160 yes a D series with an 8 speed to replace a failed trans unit. I have a very good idea on how I want to do it and retain hydraulics while being shaft driven to a WH 1 1/8 axle 8 speed via RH gear box and unfortunately a short period of belt. I know it would be quite a project to get everything measured out and secured properly along with a clutch rod and possibly modifying the shifters to come through the center plate. So do you all think this project is worth seeing through or a D series should never have an 8 speed but possibly a shaft drive rear end from an XI series WH?
  4. Do you happen to remember the paint code? I need it for mine thanks!
  5. Its alot of work but its the best way of doing it! The old 11hp briggs was cooked so it was a good excuse to redo it all and put an onan in as I'm partial to them but keep everything in the scheme work horse! Thanks!
  6. Started a little paint work on my work horse resto with a twin onan and 8 pinion rear diff

    Any muffler off a wheel Horse with an onan will work. But the number of tabs is different. A 520 has 6 for the chrome shield where say a 416 would have 4 if it doesn't have the chrome shield

    The muffler is pending. Heres some other parts I have. They're dirty but in good shape. The muffler with the chrome heat shield I'm keeping for my restoration gt1142 that I'm putting an onan in.
