    Rear axle bearings for A81

    I had a look at the old bearing again today, and lo and behold, they are not ball bearings! The Axle is in good order, so I guess the PO’s were liberal with the grease...

    Gutbrod 2500 to WH d250 conversion

    My father has a Gutbrod 2060 here in Norway. I really envy him the locking diff. It is a really nicely built tractor, typical german. But not as charming as my 1054 though!

    Rear axle bearings for A81

    I ordered these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/UCP204-12-3-4-Cast-2-Bolt-Iron-Pillow-Block-Self-Lube-Housed-Bearings-UCP/191509223810?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D2c51ec283f8c4c5f924fba88facff7c1%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D282455571449%26itm%3D191509223810&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A6d909a16-ee69-11e8-ae8e-74dbd180c803%7Cparentrq%3A3bfd63cd1670add8ef91ad30fff1bf75%7Ciid%3A1 It is easier to fit these to the frame. Cheap, I hope they are Ok...

    Rear axle bearings for A81

    Sorry for the stupid question, I just ordered a set of pillow block bearings from Ebay as I really do not need the uprights that come from the wheel horse as this is a custom build anyway.
  5. Hello, I have been given an rear axle from a A81 that is going to be used in my sons mini Cobra go kart... I now see that both beaings are stuck. Strangely enough, the bearings did not have any numbers, only information about the producer. I managed to find the Toro part number however, it is 106981. As far as I can see this bearing is NLA. Are there any replacements?

    wheel horse D 200

    I had access to a roller bending machine at work at that time. I made the pipes all the way down under the front, drilled lots of holes in the muffler area and then made the outer section from sch40 S316 stainless pipe because that was what we had... Even though I drilled many holes it was probably to few to really muffle the sound, so my D-200 is very loud and the sound is not nice either... If and when I find the time to redo it, should I consider a balance pipe between the two exhaust pipes? That could probably take some of the punch out of the sound also?

    wheel horse D 200

    Here is mine. I could not find any parts so I built them myself. They do not muffle the sound much sadly, I probably need to redo this in the future... Our D-200 has been repowered with a Onan 20hp engine. It did not run well so I also installed a SU carburettor from a Mini Cooper and that works better.

    FINN-HORSE Digger, any info?

    Just saw that someone had replied to this thread! Nice Finn-Horse!!! I just copied pictures from the other ad on Blocket.se of the manual. Maybe it is possible to find the owner of the other Finn-horse and get a copy? Found a picture: even with "roof"! http://www.muistaja.fi/imageinfo.php?muistilista=true&id=67678&view=lres

    Size of Tie-rod, 1054

    It seems I need to get out and check on the tractor to be sure. Hmmm I do have some of the old steering linkage from my D-200 that we modified to power steering from a (am I allowed to write this here?) John Deere. Maybe I have a Tie-rod in the correct dimension already? On the other hand, I would like to order a new one as I am ordering some other parts from "Wheelhorseman1000" anyway. The steering on the D-200 live a hard life...

    FINN-HORSE Digger, any info?

There is quite a lot of extras With it though! It is not cheap, 28500 Swedish krone, it is around $3300 Here is the ad if someone else should be interested: http://www.blocket.se/dalarna/Minigravare_Finn_Horse_Wheel_horse_518_H_63654536.htm?ca=11&w=3

    FINN-HORSE Digger, any info?

    Did some more searching and found the patent. I realise for most of you this is jibberish, but it states that there is not any small excavators available and this is a solution. There is a illustration on the last page! http://was.prv.se/spd/pdf/7xPd-HMxo5FhSy3t0WW1EA/SE382483.B.pdf They also did a patent for the double-ended bucket: http://was.prv.se/spd/pdf/MSnbGCcSg25hSy3t0WW1EA/SE367225.B.pdf

    FINN-HORSE Digger, any info?

    I had a closer look again and realized that with this setup the digger can turn Around 360 degrees! Also, when driwing with the arm forwards the Weight will not be all in the back like an ordinary digger.
  15. I just saw this Wheel horse with a really big digger for sale in Sweden! I have never seen anything like this, so I tried to Google but found nothing. I Guess it could be made in Finland (because of the name) or probably sweden. The instruction manual is iin Swedish also. Has anyone seen this before? Lifts the poor tractor right off the ground! Edit, I had a closer look and it states on the instruction manual that it is from Finland, produced by OY KEPPO AB.
