  1. These used to be my grandpa's wheel horses and when I was a kid I remember seeing him plow his garden with this behind the wheel horse. Not sure if he fabricated it from other plows, as he was very handy. I always just assumed it was a WH implement.
  2. So short story i should just keep it in case one of mine decide to go out or use it as parts!
  3. Guys, I have an earth plow for year 1964 -1966 wheel horse. I'm not sure the desire or value of these, as I do not have much of a use for it for my two wheel horse's. Is this worth selling via shipping (on-line) or will it just have to be a local pick-up sale do to shipping weight cost. What do you all think?
  4. I have what I believe is a Wheelhorse transmission from a 1964 -1966. Is this worth selling via shipping? I'm not sure on the value or desire for these parts, as I don't know if it is worth it to post online or just sell local, as I imagine that the shipping cost will be quite high because of its weight. What do you all think?
  5. Sorry for the delay guys, but I did end up with a good fix! Went to O'Reilly's and they had a slotted 7-5/8" belt and works great! I'm two cuts in and hasn't slipped once yet! Here's some pics....
  6. I will keep you all up to date. I am going to be trouble shooting it tomorrow, to see if I can find the problem / solution!
  7. Right On! Thanks for the tips!
  8. Has anyone experienced the mower drive/pto belt (part number 1577 replaced by 7430) (1/2" x 28") start to slip and squeal with the spindle belts not too tight and cutting normal grass height? Has anyone bought a smaller drive/pto belt so it fits tighter? Or should I just buy a couple of these belts and just keep going through them. The one slipping now is only about 2 months old. Any suggestions are welcome!

I need to replace all the belts (Trans Belt) (1st Mower Drive Belt) (2nd Mower Deck Drive belt pair) 1st Mower Drive Belt is - Toro 7430 Replaces 1577 (4L x 28") 1/2" x 28" 2nd Mower Drive Belt (pair) - Toro 1578 (3L x 37") 3/8" x 37" Trans belt - I couldn't find this one, but from the original parts list it is listed as 1576? Any info or help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Scott
