    Fixing a 90's Wheel Horse Tractor

    this was my first wheelhorse,bought it new in 86 and still have her,shes got a new engine now but ill allways keep her.i would change the oil in her after running for about 10 min.if it had rust on the cylinder as you said you need to get rid of the rust out of the engine,they don't take much oil and its good insurance,i would have pulled the head and had a peek inside and cleaned it first so you don't score the cylinder but its too late now,but definatly change the oil a few times to get rid of the rust

    Upgrade Suggestions?

    I would buy that 160 and never look back,keep the oil up and she will be fine

    Some Advice or Suggestions

    as replied already you have a few options,get the 520 and repair,hopefully it doesn't have a bad valve seat like many do,but if its a decent runner,it could be your winter machine,these tractors like the cold and its heat that the onan doesn't like,and with 20 ponies to power the blower you would never have too much snow for it,but I would keep in the garden tractor range of wheelhorses,then any other attachments(and what you already own work together,and as stated they will be similar so repair and maintance are easy,and I geuss as you already stated when a deal comes up you have to move fast

    Wrench size for blades?

    I too made a wrench for the back(spindle side)out of an old blade

    Missed again

    I think you were smart to stop,for me 350 for a 10 hp tractor is too much

    Hydro vs Manual deck height

    I have several decks from 36 to 48,they all cut different and some do as you say,i found the 48,s cut best

    Push rake?

    I have the stihl paddle,works amazing,but at work I have about 2 miles of road with stone dust screenings,so I mounted the paddle to one of our zero turns with a quick connect hinge,and a bungee cord to hold the throttle open,it works amazing and is kind of fun to operate,and you can turn the paddle to push or pull the debris,if it were 2 times wider it would be better
