    AC-67 Cultivator Side Plates Sketch Needed

    I had two of the early plates made for my Two piece set as I had no idea what year mine was made but I knew these plates would work. Not sure about uses of the later style attach-a-magic for the center cultivator. Biggest problem I ever had was making the lift link bar! These are good for show but if you want to use one that is for a working garden. The Brinly type pull behind is the wa to go in my opinion. I use nine times with a mix of Danish and shovel type tunes. Works great!

    Talk to me about the 856 model...

    The 854 was the first 8 hp Wheel Horse. A round hood but I have owned three 856’s and although they have the square hood and some other differences the vim and vigor of this tractor is noticeably different from say a 1970’s B-80. The 856 is a great all-around garden tractor.

    What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    Sparky: The new led bulbs hook up and are made externally just like the original bulbs. An easy setup just change the bulbs and wire connections. Here is the link to them on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076D32NXV/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  7. IAN928 In Norway is only member I recall with photos of a 1054 Snowblower on his tractor "Elvira". I have not seen Ian active on Red Square for some time>
  8. Scott Melburg has been doing this for several years in the school he teaches at in Indiana. Several Wheel Horse tractor owners have donated tractors to his student run club that has restored tractors donated to them. Tractors owners need to connect with their local school corporations to determine interest in accepting or receiving a donated tractor for use as educational tools.
  9. Very glad to see that Glen Pettit has returned to the Red Square! His products and support for Wheel Horse owners has been a Godsend to all of the Wheel Horse folks trying to keep their tractors going with parts we need to do the job of restoration and maintaining these great little tractors. Please support Glen and his products in the Vendors Section! I am very glad to see Glen active again and thankful for his good health.

    C-101 ignition switch cleanup

    Not all are able to be saved. The internal rivets come apart, the plastic does fail, parts wear down . But a good primer on rebuilding a switch.

    I bought some new led light bulbs for my. 314-8 and placed them on my winter worker. First photo is of the box box for the led bulbs I bought on Amazon for a reasonable price for a pair. Second is of the original , conventsil bulbs. Third and fourth photos are of the new led bulbs that use less electrical power. Here is the link to them on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076D32NXV/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Non stick for snow blowers

    I have used Sno-Jet for years. An original product used by the Ariens Company that made some of the first snowblowers. You can use it on snowblower chutes, augers, snowplows and snow shovels. Works great made by MDI. .
