  1. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for removing a stuck brake disc on an A 800 Ranger, the disc is seized to the shaft its is on but is still free turning while driving. I need to remove it to gain access to the brake pad behind it to change it out. So far I have tried light heat, WD - 40, soaking in diesel, gear pullers and some persuasion with a hammer. Other than that i don't know what else to do. I will upload pics soon to help better explain what I mean. I have searched online for a parts diagram of my specific gearbox and as with all part lists and things for the a 800 ranger they are very scarce and hard to come by. Thanks in advance. Jack

    Thanks for pointing me in the direction of these hadn't heard or seen of them until now. Looks like a neat and tidy method of making it work cheap to. As for fuse thanks for the guidance on what size to use. But i would mostly always put a fuse in line in order to protect it. You explained how to wire it but I'm sill not quiet getting you any chance you would draw up a rough diagram to show me what you mean. Thanks for the help again Ok yeah i have heard of the CCA being used to measure now you mention it and cheers for the workings of the rough time it should run for very helpful

    Yeah that's the idea i hadn't thought of doing it on a momentary switch, as you say wouldn't be automatic but its something would definitely work. I was going for automatic but if I cant work out a way seems a good bet. Thanks.

    Yeah sounds good thanks plan on two front headlights, 4 indicators and 2 rear brake lights thanks for working that out about the length of run time and amount of watts. Yeah brake wise that's the plan, i just thought its a nice edition and to make it slightly more road legal as i have relatively short distances traveling on road. Would love to hear your ideas on it thanks.

    Not to long 30mins to a probable max of 2 hours and was thinking LEDs as less of a power draw.

    Well this is what i was looking at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toro-Wheelhorse-xl380-Lawnmower-Battery/222372337257?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 that's 32AH i was always under the impression that was amp hour and that's what's on my other mower.

    Electric Modification Question

    Thanks for the response so far, yeah its a 3 amp charging system and that was my fear with it. What size battery do think would run that sort of lighting setup i was thinking 32 amp hr. Any idea on how to wire this up and what gauge of wire to use also any idea the fuses it would need?
  9. Hi All, I have a question regarding doing an electric mod on my Wheelhorse A800 Ranger. What I wish to do is install some front headlights, rear brake lights, and indicators on all four corners i would also like to install a horn a some point but that can come later. I'm unsure on the best way of wiring this, what gauge wire to use, do I need a fuse if so what ampage and where also what size amp hour battery is best to use if I'm running these additions so i don't drain the battery. I understand more how I'm going to wire the indicators than how I'm going to get the break light to work but really require advice on both. Thanks for you time in reading this. Jack Oldham
