    5XI Transaxle tubing

    Caps just to seal from dust? Get some rubber hose and clamps.

    Identifying Year 520 with no ID tags

    I had one w 102 hours traded for 314h w 175 hours. Just because I don’t trust the Onans. My friend is finally ready to part w that machine and I’m tempted to jump on it. When Onans are running right there’s nothing like it. That being said a 341 is a great alternative. Sounds like a plan. Go for it. The steering and heavy duty spindles are a big improvement. Those transmissions rarely fail. And if it does they’re a dime a dozen. Good luck!

    9 hours travel time is out of my comfort zone for a questioanble machine. Have patience a better machine will pop up. They always do!

    Front End Loader

    If I buy anything else it’ll be 4x4.

    Front End Loader

    Yes sir. Contemplate selling it every year. One less item to maintain up there

    I have one on a 522xi I’m selling in the spring. It’s located in Adirondack Park NY. PM me for details

    Whats the story with the xi series?

    Dam son! Were you you hitting the sauce? MTD made WH? Never heard that. As for those Fix It Again Tony specials, aka FIAT, I’ll stick to American iron.

    Whats the story with the xi series?

    I have a 522xi w 1100 hours and a loader. Hands down the most thought out machine to wear the WH badge. Mine was run hard and left for dead @ 1000 hours. Plenty life left in it Biggest problem I see w them is attachments. They’re out there but much harder to come by. Should you buy one go over all linkage w a set wrenches and lock tite.

    Kohler engine parts

    Purchased this stuff for a build that never happened. $180 as a package plus shipping. That is my lowest price. All parts are already being sold at a loss. New Bosch Blue Coil & wire $50 shipped Used 16hp Crank $50 plus shipping. I believe it needs to be machined Kohler Cam $100 plus shipping for 10-16 hp Magnums and K blocks. This was David Kirks last one 2-3 years ago. More info on the cam can be found in Killer Kohler write up https://www.kirkengines.com/

    Kohler Magnum & K16 hp blocks

    I have a Kohler k partially rebuilt w fresh .0010 bore and a new Kohler piston. And another complete Magnum 16 in need of a rebuild. Have all parts to finish rebuild. They’ve been taking up space for a few years now. With 3 kids I just don’t have time or desire. Come with cash and take it all away
  12. BTW I run a bunch of weight. 50lb wheel weights. And 300+ on a ballast rack. I used a 2” receiver hitch to mount the ballast. Also have a ballast box I can swap in. Comes in handy when I doing chores as a tool holder, rope, shovels, chainsaws....
  13. Looking good! My Xi loader is mounted to the rear axle as well.
  14. Later model 48” decks had the reinforced topside. My 1994 42” RD is going strong without any cracks or rust.

    416-8 running out of ideas

    I usually just jump right across both sides of the start solenoid. That’s the doohickey w large diameter red wires on both sides one goes to back of starter and other to the battery. More room to do so on a Kohler think the Onan makes that area a bit tight. Remeber your not cranking to start the engine you just want to verify the starter is good. So a quick tap is all you need.
