  1. Before and After. It was all worth it. It's like running a new Tractor. When we moved to the country in 1993 there was a Stihl dealer in Town that also sold New Wheelhorse's, I would go in there for Chainsaw parts I would look at the Horse's but at that time couldn't afford one. Now that I could afford one ,out of business. I did the next best thing. I finally have a New one !

    Snow/Dozer Down Pressure

    Today I fabricated the link for Down pressure. Just wondering what do you do with the existing lift arm. I'm worried about bending it. I thought of wiring it up. Any suggestions

    Yesterday I filled the Rear wheels with RV Antifreeze, Got the wheel Weights on and mounted the plow. Today Grading the 1500 ft Driveway. I'm impressed the new Eaton 1100 pushed like a bear. The Hydro lift is great. For the last 12 years I've been doing all the work here with the 310-8. Huge difference, When I bought this Tractor it was in tough shape all rusty and no maintenance. After some sandblasting ,Paint and a new Hydro I love it

    518-H restoration

    I installed the Hydraulic Lift The 417-A donor Tractor had it. I put all new lines on ,It works great. I'm not sure about Decals Do I want the Stock look or something different
  6. Finished up the 518. Came out pretty well. With the Eaton 1100 I sailed up the Driveway the 700 would struggle going up. Very happy with the results. I would like to thank the members here for their assistance.

    518 Restoraton

    I'm getting close to a test run. After filling the Transaxle and running it I found the oil very milky. Drained and refilled looked better. A couple more changes and it should clean up nicely. I'm not sure on which set of Decals I want Stock or maybe something custom

    518 Restoraton

  9. This Site is great. So many helpful members. I'm going to give back. As far as the Lift rock Shaft I cut 4 1/4" pieces of plate and put them next to the lift mechanism, It gave me somewhere solid to drive against, Using a 1" Brass rod it drove out fairly easy. Next I removed the New Eaton 1100 from the donor Tractor and left the wheels on. Using a 2ft Pipe wrench over the Axle it was very easy to move it around. I put 2 old studs I had in 2 of the Transaxle mounting holes and with my Floor jack under the tractor pretty much rolled it into position, A drop of thread lock on each bolt and it's in there. wheel horse tranny wheel horse 3

    518 Restoration

    Is there a Keyway in the sleeve, Something has to keep it from spinning. What keeps the lift arm on. Is this a drift pin ?

    518 Restoration

    The height adjustment knob is all off, I have a Donor Tractor that the New Eaton is coming off, Lots of extra parts
  12. I decided to go with the Eaton 1100. I'm having a problem with the Lift Rock Shaft . I got it out on the right side but can't get the Lift arm to move. Am I going about this right. Tomorrow I'll try to heat it up and break it loose. I have been putting Penetrating oil on it all day.
  13. I'm restoring a 518-H. It has the Eaton 700 Transaxle. I have located a Gentleman that has a replacement 1100. He also has all the parts to turn it into a 8 speed. I have a 310-8 that I love. I'm seriously considering making the change. What are your thoughts. I live on hilly property, The Tractor will be used for mowing and snow removal
  14. I am restoring a 518 H I would like to know what the non slip covering on the floor boards is and where I can get some. Thanks

    Oil Level

    Thank You for the input. I don't normally wipe the Oil and reinsert. I've been checking Oil in all types of engines my whole life ( 37 years Heavy Equipment Operator ) I had never seen oil high on the Dipstick like that. I thought maybe a breather or something else was plugged.
