    Dead 520LXI

    Hello all. My battery in my 520LXI was going out, the lights would come on but the engine would not turn over. I put a 1.5 amp truckle charger on the battery when i left for a 4 days trip. I come back and the same. I also noticed i left the key in the run position (the hour meter did not run). I swap out batteries and now the mower is completely dead. When i turn the key - nothing. I verify the battery it good (13.04v), negative is connected to the engine block, voltage is good on the solenoid side of the starter. I out the key to run and try to jump to see if i can start and nothing. Not even a spark. I have used this mover for years and has 500 hours. Could the ignition switch or brake switch be bad? The seat switch is jumped.What else could cause my mower to be dead? Thank you in advance.
  2. Hey guys! new wheel horse owner here. I picked up a 2001 523xi that came with a berco subframe. I happened to find a 40" compact berco that was hardly used to slap on it only I'm not sure where to start as there are no resources for this that I can find. I'm mechanically inclined, rebuilt the injection pump, injectors etc... as I purchased it non-running as it wasn't receiving any fuel to the injectors (it runs amazing now btw). so for starters I'm going to go out on a whim here and say that this will require the mule drive or "pulley box". and I've got the rest of the parts in the picture. The parts of the subframe that look to bolt up seem so narrow compared to the hookups on the rest of the tractor. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. I have an oil leak on my Kohler CH22 in my Toro 522XI (see video). I put in new head gaskets to remedy low compression. Then upon first start i had a large oil leak. It seemed to come from the aft oil seal. So i pulled the engine again and replace the seals. I re-installed the engine again today and the leak is still there. This is the leak now: https://youtu.be/pi382fXVXPQ What could cause it? I did blow out the air line from the fuel pump with compressed air into the crank case to clan out any debris. Could that have caused a leak this bad on the oil pan gasket? or another location? thank you all in advance!
  4. Can someone tell me how long is the drive belt from the engine to the mower deck is? 522xi with a 52" side discharge mower deck.
  5. I am considering repowering my 522xi (for various reasons, but that's not the issue here) and I need the help of some experienced people. Sorry this post is a bit disjointed, I wanted to condense my thoughts without creating a bunch of new topics. I believe that the Kohler CH730 is a near direct fit for the Kohler CH22S that is in the unit, does anyone know this for sure? Best I can tell it is. My first issue is with the PTO shaft. The replacement engine I have a lead on has a (proper diameter) 4" long shaft with a 7/16-20 1.5" deep threaded hole on it, the one that came in the 522xi has a 3-5/32" shaft. I am hoping to run it as is, but it looks like it might come dangerously close to the battery, and I dont know if that 27/32" difference will cause the PTO belts to run all amok. How does the PTO attach to the driveshaft, just bolted straight on? If it is an issue, has anyone cut a crankshaft before? If so, how? Will there be enough threads left for the PTO bolt if I don't have the crankshaft re-drilled and tapped? I called one machine shop that rebuilt my K341 and they said they couldnt do it, but I may check with others. Thanks in advance everyone! I changed the topic title to reflect my project that was based on the original topic.

    5XI Transaxle tubing

    I have a transaxle from a 518XI that i have as a spare. I would like to put some caps on the two open hydraulic lines, but i am having some hard time figuring out the thread and type to mate with the existing tubing. Does anyone know the specs for can point me to a fitting that will work? thanks!

    Looking at a 522xi

    I'm going to look at a 1998 522xi tomorrow. it has approx 300 hrs. Described as like new condition except for slight paint fade. If it is indeed in very good condition, what do you think is a fair price? it is a one owner and was supposedly serviced regularly from the dealer that has it now. It has power steering, deck wash down fitting and the arm rest seat. Thanks for any replies.
  8. Heads up for those in the midwest, there seems to be a good candidate for a project or fixer upper 522xi on chambana CL. I hope someone in the St Louis area grabs it so i can lend a hand an learn a bunch too (i currently own a 522XI). For $400 you get a 522XI with electric issues (wires chewed from mice), plus 52" deck and snow blower. I would be all over this but i do not have the time, money or space right now.

    Ode to an XI

    To anyone who thinks Toro ruined Wheel Horse: you have not tried an XI. Yesterday I mowed my grass for the first time with my XI with a fairly junky deck that has re-welds and braces that cause clogs. That is an awesome machine to mow with. The weight of it really gives you a smooth ride and it also allowed me to sidecut my hill (though I will be putting wheel weights on next time, just a BIT tippy). 25HP really allowed that 48" deck to chew through the tall wet grass and other than the clogging (caused by a poorly positioned brace welded in) it just took it all no problem. The electric clutch holds steady and doesn't allow slipping. I was so impressed. The power steering, while not precise, is effortless and you get used to it pretty fast. While it is almost a foot longer than my 520 was, it can turn in a much smaller radius. It was just a delight to drive. The pedals are positioned well and have good feedback. The extra bit of adjustments they added to the deck work nicely and the front anti-scalp wheels are so much better! Getting on and off with no tunnel is pretty awesome too. And on top of all of that, it still feels like a Wheel Horse. Anyone that has driven lots of brands of tractors will tell you you can feel the brand of tractor that you are driving, and this feels like a horse. Will I be selling off my classics? No. They all have their strong points but I feel that the XI is highly underrated by many. I have had this unit for less than a year and I don't feel like that attachments are too hard to come by. I own a NOS tiller for it now, a mower deck, plow, and snowblower. All pretty reasonably priced. Is it a perfect machine? NO. It is still a garden tractor and it is not a SCUT or zero turn. There are of course some things that some companies had that would have made it even better (and aesthetics, c'mon now!), but I can tell you that Toro took the heart of a wheel horse and in almost every way made it better. If the heavy duty, high quality garden tractor were still a feasible market today, I am certain that Wheel Horse would be a top competitor. So thank you Toro for keeping WH alive for all those years and thank you for the XI. That is an awesome machine. Ok. End of ramble... Now... Does anyone have a really good condition 44 or 48" deck for an XI they want to sell?

    CH22 Exhaust Bolts

    I am looking at possibly removing my exhaust to get at the engine better for cleaning it, and also maybe putting some high temp on the muffler. It is pretty clear that the studs and nuts are VERY rusty, (funny, because the rest of the tractor has hardly any at all) and I am afraid they will not come of without a fight. Should I just leave it and deal with it as is? What is the process of fixing/replacing this were I need to remove the muffler? It seems to run really well, so I don't want to dig into it too much, but I want to clean it up to give it a fresh start. There are a few broken off shroud bolts (how do you break those!?) that I need to get at and replace.

    got #4 today

    So far I have run it about a half hour. Power steering was cool......at first.....then when I began mowing, I realized it is not "tight". It doesn't hold a straight line.... Anyway. 52" deck 800 hrs. The purpose of this post is the next question. the hydro is jerky & odd at low speeds.......lunges & bucks constantly. At mowing speed, no trouble. I would not do forward and reverse work with anyone watching.. It would be embarasing. The previous owner changed the hydro filter, (toro brand)..... Deck lift is crisp and fast. Nothing is getting abnormally warm. (also have a 520xi). I will post pics a little later. I have tried to research these symptoms earlier today, but couldn't find much. Probably wrong search words. I am sure there are a number of (clears throat....) "words" used to discuss this topic. I plan on taking the seat, tank, and tin off, to clean it early next week. Trying to poll the audience to get a game plan. Overall, got a fair deal. KJC
  12. I think that's what I heard her say! Or maybe in not so many or the same words. But I just had to! Saw it in Craigslist, saw the price and bought in the dark last night. Got some issues but I drove it up the ramps! Haven't had time to unload or really check it out, yet. Funny part, I live in NY and this was an hour and a half into Vt. We get it all loaded and 10pm or so I head back but stopped to fill up. Just me and another car at the station and the other driver gets out, asks me if he can look at the tractor and then proceeds to tell me it's history! What are the odds? It does need a ignition switch but he tells me the rear leaks real bad and will need a heavy duty hub kit. Maybe axles. I didn't know they had any issues? "Hub kit" And I was surprised to hear maybe axles. He says these "xi"s rears are not fun to work on either! Well, hard to get at. Not what I wanted to hear but for what I paid for it, it really doesn't matter. 522xi 48" deck weight box 17cu/ft (I think!) Toro trailer

    Decent Buy?

    I just picked this up. Its a 1998 522Xi with kwik-way Front End Loader. for $2800 the hour meter is showing 327 hours. The guy claimed to be the original owner. Im new to the wheel horse's but very much becoming a fan. In my eyes Its a great little tractor. I just was curious if was good buy as I couldn't find anything to compare it to for sale.

    Just got it home 3 days ago and since weather isn't very nice out for pictures all i can show is it in my cramped up garage... I will definitely post more pictures of it cleaned up and looking good this spring. Came with a 60" fab deck and i went and picked up a 42" single stage snow thrower for it today.
