    repair wheel hub

    That sounds like a good idea. Its better than the JB Weld I thought about using. I will check with my machinist friend. Thanks.

    repair wheel hub

    I have worked on many Wheel Horse tractors and one thing I find on many of them is the wheel hub is wallowed out in the keyway. This allows the hub to rotate slightly on the axle. This will give a feeling of slippage in the drive train or transmission. I have even found them with a piece chipped out of the axle. I know it is important to keep the setscrew tight to keep it from movement. Anyway, has anyone found a way to repair these hubs short of replacing them?

    Need a bagger, which ones will fit

    Sorry, My last post was wrong. The 79301 vac-bagger fits the 300, 400, and 500 series tractors.

    Vacuum bagger

    I have a brand new vac-bagger model 79301 made for the 300, 400, and 500 series. It is for 42 and 48 inch decks. I would sell for $400 but you would have to pick it up here in northern MN.

    I don't know if it would fit but I have a new 79301 vac-bagger that you could pick up for $400. It fits 42 and 48 decks in the 100, 200 and 300 series. It might be adaptable to the 5xi.

    Bagger for Wheel Horse 416-H

    I have a NOS vac-bagger that fits the large frame tractors for sale.
  10. Have you ever tried the candle wax method? I had a set screw on the wheel hub that broke and could not get it out. I heated the bottom of the bolt and dripped wax from a candle on to the bolt. Then used an easy out and it came out.

    520-H not running right

    I use my 416 for blowing snow and usually have to pull the choke out a little to get it to stop surging. It may need to have a larger main jet. However for the running rough, check the compression and the condition of the spark plugs. Compression should be within 10% of each other.

    5xi Dozer Blade

    I have this dozer blade that came from a 5xi tractor that is just like new with very little use. I do not have a tractor that it will fit so it is for sale. It came to me on a trade.
