    older wheel horse tractor

    sorry there is no key just a push button to shut the motor off ;i will have to check it to make sure it is wired ;but heck the transmission and other parts are worth the 100 ;;it seems we live and learn as time goes by ;thanks for the reply ;

    there is no key what is there is a push button to shut the motor down .i am sure once i get the bugs out of it it will be fine ;but even though it is the wrong motor heck for a 100 bucks the transmission is worth that plus a few other parts thanks for the reply

    older wheel horse tractor

    well guys it has been a while i posted a question about a carb adjustment on a B-80 which i was able to figure out and it runs strong 'and i want to thank again the ones that did reply 'so now i have another question and i sure hope some one might know ; i was searching the craigslist for the older horses and found one that was listed for 125.00 but the owner would say he would take a 100.00 for it so off i went to the st.louis area from my home in Springfield a 2 plus 1/2 ride to and the same back 'but anyways here are a few pictures of the old horse ;yes at times we get scammed but at times we have to trust others for there word 'but anyways what i have is a older horse and really do not know the year ;in all it looked good with a few miner issues such as the choke cable and the throttle froze up 'it has the pull start and i am sure it goes back to the days ;the motor is a Briggs and stratton really not sure what horse power as the owner said a 8 but it looks a little bigger ;the deck is solid but he thinks either the belt is bad or a bad spindle ;the one idler puller is bad which is no biggie 'so i ask if any one here might know the year of this old horse'on the side of the housing the numbers are # B-703866'thanks guys yes it is an automatic but now to find the screw or valve so it will free wheel as so many are so different

    wheel horse model B-80 carburetor adjustments

    thanks for the reply'it s well appreciated;even the input on the fluid to use
  10. hello everyone it seems i have been taking time off from the restoring of these find old tractors after i sold off the so called no name horse made back in 73 ;but after that i think i did good as in a trade of a few others ;a model 1076 with a plow and deck ;with the auto transmission with the hydro lift plus a 1972 commando 8 but the motor smokes bad even when started oil shoots out of the muffler so i am gong to try that mystery oil then if that does not work a rebuild/but even with the fuel pump not working i gravity fed the fuel line straight to the carburetor and the old thing started up the question i have is a 1974 B-80 with the 8 horse motor as i really do not know the correct settings for the carburetor as which screw is for what and how many turns.really i have never been any good as setting these so any help would be great'plus on more question seeing how most stores do not sell the A-transmission fluid what do we use in the place of it for our older 69-plus automatics
