    Onan 18 Oil Filter

    Engine Oil filter: WIX 51762 Napa 1762 is the LONG filter, 1374 short. Carquest 85762 is the LONG filter, 85374 is the short. Long sticks out past the flywheel shroud and short is about even with it. Some tractors can't fit the long but it's difficult to get the short one off. I generally use the long one if it fits.

    Yes, I like to use a washer also. I forgot to mention that.

    416H Throttle Creep - How to Fix?

    Drill the rivet at the throttle pivot point with a 1/4" drill bit and replace with a 1/4-20 bolt and lock nut. You can adjust the torque on the nut to adjust how firm you'd like the throttle lever. This was a method the factory Wheel Horse people instructed our dealership to use after replacing throttle cables (with brand new cables) frequently and having creep reoccur within a short period of time. If you peen the rivet it will need to be done again in a short period of time, although it will work if you're in a pinch.

    The REAL Wheel Horse

    Per my dad "Wheel Horse was a partial sponsor of the horse park. They provided some grounds equipment and owned 2 belgian draft horses that were kept there. One of the sales brochures had a picture of the horses."

    The REAL Wheel Horse

    My parents were dealers and I recall us going to Kentucky Horse park in the late 80's... I would have been 6 or 7 but I don't know why else we would have went unless Wheel Horse was putting on an event there. I'll check with my dad and see if it was Wheel Horse related. I don't recall seeing any tractors that day but with all of the large horses and things, tractors being a daily occurrence in my life, I may have not noticed them. Most of our vacations and trips back then revolved around Wheel Horse events so I think it's highly likely.
