I have decided to upgrade the steering wheel on my 310-8.I purchased a two spoke 15" wheel.Like the steering wheels on my 520 and 416h the plastic rim is slick.Wearing gloves in the winter makes gripping the rim harder.Before I installed the wheel I sprayed a liberal coat of rustoleum bedliner on the rim.The color matches well and you don't know its been done until you grab the wheel.I am going to do this to all my other two spoke wheels.Cheap,easy to touch up and very effective.Luck,JAinVA
Hi everyone! Steve here. I am a newbee Wheel Horse owner. I buought what I believe to be a 1960 Wheel Horse 400 or 550 at an auction 2 weeks ago, It does not have an original engine (has a briggs 5hp). My plan is to restore it so it can be used by my 3 (soon to be 4) grandkids to cruize around our small farm. I found this site after looking around on the web and in a short time have realized there are good people here and great information. So...... Here I go on a the restoration. Getting the steering wheel off proved to be a fun first challange :*****: ! Here are some picsof our project!.
I have a 401. The front rims are both different upon inspection. Both are 8 inch and same width. Both have the same offsets. Both are wheel horse rims and have the two holes for bolt on weights. But, one rim has the grease zerk and valve stem on the outside and the other rim has them both on the inside. (no you can't just flip one wheel around as the inner hub length is longer than the outer hub length.) The second difference is the shape of the "dish" or "bubble" in the center of the wheel. One has a more pronounced hump in the center of the rim. It is obvious that one of them is not correct to the tractor. From what I can tell, it looks like these early models had the zerk and valve stem on the outside. I obviously have rims from two different years or two different models. Where the front rims different from year to year? Anyone have knowledge of what rims were used in what years or what my odd rim might be from? Is there a way to ID these? Here is the "correct" one. I can't find a picture of the other one at this time though. The other one looks very close, just the zerk and tube are on the other side of the wheel and the bulge in the center is a different shape.
