    resurrecting the c111

    I sorted out the wiring, put air in the tires and took the plunge... the c111 bravely battled the yard and won(mostly) I will be finishing it tomorrow. I am learning the quirks such as it likes to pop out of high range, it doesn't charge, the clutch spring is week(I have a new one), and a few others but I am happy with it. I am fond of my 655 but there is a different feel to the c111. With the 655 you do(work) and marvel that it does, and with the c111 it just does.

    resurrecting the c111

    New fuel tank grommet in, fuel line run, new fuel pump, new battery, new battery cable, fuel tank installed, seat pan installed, seat (not jd but broken gardening seat from harbor freight). Still chasing wiring gremlins but it's running. Rode it out to get the mail! Few more odds and ends to tinker with but there is light at the end of the tunnel!

    resurrecting the c111

    I bought a c111 two or three years back and she has been back burnered since purchace. Now entering the second summer at my house the yard is taking its toll on my 655 (witch i used to plow my driveway this winter past). So I dragged the c111 out of storage. I tore into it made a list and set about getting it running. well this evening to catch a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel i jumped a few wires, hooked up the new fuel pump and with out much hesitation she came back to life. now to check off everything on the list. pics and updates to come.

    What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    I am currently resurecting a c111 to take over mowing dutys for my 655. The hilly acre of fast growing grass is a little too much for the 655.
  6. I may not be on here much but I am still tinkering with wheel horses. My collection has grown to about 10 and I have just about every attachment that I want... but could still use a few more:text-lol:

    I back at it

    I have been dormant here and in my wheel horse activities for 6 months or so. But now my wife and I finally have a house of our own so now that means my wheel horses have a yard and driveway of their own. That also means I have to nurse them all back into health... The first being my 1056 witch will be my main mower. It has its work cut out for it the yard has yet to be mowed...

    1056 rewire

    I am rewireing my 1056 and I have a few questions. Will it be alright to leave the tab on the regulator for the cigar lighter unused? Witch would be better volt meter or ammeter? Thanks

    wobbly hubs

    The hours of my tractor are unknown but more than likely high. I am going to put another set screw in at 90 degrees but before I go through the hassle while I have them off I will check the bore. I am hoping they are not hour glassed out as @JAinVA suggested. The Once a gain thanks for the added information...

    wobbly hubs

    Thanks for all the help! my set screws are just bolts unfortunately I will have to get a proper set of set screws. I will also put another set screw 90 deg. from the original. Does any one have pictures of their set up with the added set screw?

    wobbly hubs

    I just went through and put new bearings and seals in my 655s transmission, and when I put it back together I got new woodruff keys for the axles. The slots for the woodruff keys were not in bad shape. The channels in the hubs were alittle ruff but nothing I figured would cause a problem when I put the new set screws in. So what happens is now I can tighten the set screw and the hub will tighten up then one rotation or so later the hub seem loose again but the set screw is still tight. Any thoughts?
