    rear tires

    Sounds stupid but the Ags won’t tear up the lawn in less a tire spins. Just normal driving around it’s just fine. I have Ags on all my machines. One has some serious lugs that measure 1 1/2” and they don’t tear it up.

    C-161 New Wheel Questions

    Buy the blanks and weld them where you want. I needed 10" wides for my g/f loader 520. Once I figured where they went, couple zaps with the welder and done!!

    All Terrain C-81

    I had the HTRs on my machine and did OK in the mud, but without enough wheel speed they don't clean out. Even then they weren't great. I had an XXC 1000 with pipes and a clutch and would spin the tires on dry pavement at 35mph. All my pics are on my phone, but on my g/f tractor with the loader I put Super Swamper Vampires, 25x12.5x12s on 10" wheels. They fit under the stock pan with no mods. The lugs are 1.5" so just laughs at mud and even snow. They are 6 or 8 ply, super heavy duty. Now just need to finish it. Below is a link to what they look like, but I sure didn't pay that. Only $25 each.. https://www.motosport.com/product/?cc=us&creative=76553558507202&device=c&key=Interco-Super-Swamper-Vampire-Tire&mrkgadid=3309624575&mrkgcl=500&product_id=ICO0005-X001-Y006&psreferrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bing.com%2Fimages%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dsuper%2Bswamper%2Bvampire%2Batv%26FORM%3DHDRSC2&pssource=true&rkg_id=0&segment=badger&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=Bing_PLA&variant[ICO0005]=ICO0005-X001-Y006

    rebuild briggs, kohler 8 or 16 horse?

    After I made the other post I went looking for it, and can’t find it. So it either sold or is gonna try again. It’s been up for awhile, and isn’t too far from me, but the green stuff has been coming up short, and I don’t mean the grass, so been holding off. Gonna look for it again, if not the 8 horse is available. For now lol...

    rebuild briggs, kohler 8 or 16 horse?

    im really impressed just what the 8 horse briggs can do. I have a lawn roller that weighs about 11-1200 pounds filled with water. Most of my yard has a slight slope, and this lil thing will pull it up and down no problem, and not even wide open, maybe not even half throttle. I'm kinda scared to go more than 1/2, since the hood starts to rattle, and I don't know the motor. The governor works great, it raises throttle when it needs, puffs some smoke and pulls. I found a Kohler 8 horse magnum with recoil, for $100 can't go wrong. I only found one 16 horse, can get whole tractor for $200, but I think if I bring another tractor home girl friend gonna kill me!!!! I'm gonna shoot the guy an email and see if he sell just the motor. Rolling chassis with an 8-speed is still an easy $100 all day long. If it wasn't painted all stupid it prolly be gone by now. If I go that route, just hope I can find the right oil pan, way too many on evilbay…..

    rebuild briggs, kohler 8 or 16 horse?

    So the 606 that was given to me has an older Briggs 8 horse on it. It runs good, but smokes. Also the hood was trimmed to clear the air filter. Luckily it was "sliced" so can be put back and welded. Eventually want to repower it, either with a Kohler 8 horse, or after reading 82Caddy's post, getting a 16 horse and shoehorning it under the hood. I swapped to an 8-speed, and don't plan on doing anything crazy, hopefully a snow blower, and have both types of hitches for a rear plow. Only experience I have with a Kohler was an 8 horse on a lawn ranger. Torque is crazy with such a small motor. I found one for $100, but keep going back to the 16 horse. I think I have an excessive power addiction lol....

    What is happening to Wheel Horse part prices??

    eBay is rediculous. Some parts are worth more, but some I don’t why they bother! But, everything is getting more expensive, not just wheelhorse parts.

    What needs done to put a honda gx390 on a c160?

    Some type of motor plate. Crank isn’t in same location as stock, and not sure if it’s same size which isn’t likely.

    6-12 Ag tires on rims

    Came with the 606 I got. They are Dico tru power, 6-12s on skinny rims. They have tubes in them, but are in great shape. Tractor sat in a barn for years, and only front tires where shot. I don't think there is any dry rot on these. I will post pics in the morning. I can meet within reason, been working weekends....

    Curse of the 310-8 continues

    Other thing too is sure the belt guard goes near the tranny pulley. I swapped tranny’s last nite and some of the mounts where broke or tweaked, causing the guard to scrub the pulley. Really annoying lol...

    Curse of the 310-8 continues

    Check n make sure the belt didn’t go over the retainer, I think it’s called lol. It’s on the engine, just under the belt guard by pulley. it’s supposed to keep the belt from lifting too much when the clutch is depressed. It will go to the outside and tho the tractor will move, it can screech and smoke some. My 520-8 does it now n then...
