  1. You need the long one or the brake band rod? I've got both on a Raider 12. Send me a PM.

    What happened to my Electro????

    Buddy of mine picked up a C-120 with a nice 42" deck for a song because "engine was locked up". Pulled the starter and freed it up. Worked perfectly and sold it for big bucks. Just sayin'...

    Online Small engine course suggestions.

    While YouTube does, occasionally, provides some education, I view the instructional videos to be mostly entertainment. More often than not, the videos are posted by Jack Legs who think they know what they are talking about and don't cover all aspects of a repair or rebuild. For a quick fix or simple "how to" perspective, I have learned a few tricks. A hands on class at a local community college would be best...IMO.

    Key ignition issue

    A K341AS is a cradle mount engine. There is a ground wire on the cradle. Check to see if it is broken, loose etc. Without it connected, it won't start or run

    Hello from NW Arkansas

    As long as it has the internal resistor, it will work.

    Hello from NW Arkansas

    Just take a points file with you next time. Clean them up before anything else. Good luck!

    Hello from NW Arkansas

    I'm with 953 nut. Many moons ago, when I first discovered Wheel Horses, did a lot of research and decided I HAD to have C-160. Fast forward a few years, have owned a few of them but sold them because they are in high demand around here and "everything has a price". Several years ago I got a C-160 auto that I am determined to keep. NOT FOR SALE! Has always done (with ease) everything demanded of it. Pay whatever she wants and feel good about helping her out and your new acquisition.

    What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    This is how it's done!

    Carb replacement

    Try gapping the points at .020. It will work much better.

    If you put a smaller pulley on the blower, it will really move some air.

    But....will it fit in your truck?

    New synolid won't start

    Check your ammeter connections. Loose or broken wires will kill it dead.

    K341 carburetor tuning questions

    Check your points setting. I would go with .019.

    Engine goes under load then snubs out

    Definitely a rare occurance. It might be interesting to repeat the situation on a bench. Next time I have one up there, I'll try shorting the stator and see what happens... Of course it'll be someone else's motor! Just kidding. Thanks for the heads up.
