    Mower deck 37"

    I have a 37" side discharge deck i took off a 800 Special im not sure if the 800 came with that deck or not. I know it fits lots of different yr wheel horses. It does make i little noise but not to bad. I just sharpened the blades. If interested please call text or pm me thnx. The pic is before i fixed it up n painted some of it. For some reason i allways have trouble with pics on here.

    1277 rare or not

    Hey everyone i gots a question. How rare are the 1277s? I hardly ever c them on here or Craigslist. N not many questions about them on here. The 1277 was the first wheel horse i got n it was in a falling down shed for a few yrs. I got it for cleaning out the shed. I was amazed at how easy it was to get running. Now i use it every day to mow to take my 2 yr old son rides and it always starts rite up. Thats why i got bit by the bug. I hope my son is using it when hes my age. I know he loves it now. I was just wondering how rare they are any info on this will greatly be appreciate. Thanks Kavin

    8hp briggs

    I have an 800 special with a 8hp briggs on it i cleaned the carb n i dont think i got it adjusted rite. How many turns on the needle valves should I start with? And the carb still leaks its different than other carbs I've worked on. I had to pull the main needle valve n back the jet out to separate the carb. It has a long brass tube that goes in the top half of the carb. The jet got tight on the way out so i couldn't get it out the whole way but it was open. Anyone else have this problem? Thnx everyone
