Help ID Wheelhorse 552?
tgriffin27 posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsMy GF found this for sale while travelling and it is 160 miles from me so I can't go and look at it till saturday. From youtube videos I have watched I think it is a 552. The owner bought it at a fleamarket last year and has been using it as yard art since then. He says it doesn't steer(you turn the steering wheel and the wheels don't move) and the engine doesn't run(he has never tried to start it since he has owned it. From the pictures can you guys tell what it is and what should I be looking for when I go see it(any problems with these models or parts it should have? He is also asking $300 obo so what would you guys offer knowing it needs a total restoration and may be missing parts? I don't know wheelhorse lawnmowers at all but I love the look of them and want to own and restore one.
Stens universal ignition module
Hukah posted a topic in Wheel Horse ElectricalI just put a 'Stens' universal ignition module on my SB-421. Its finally showing a spark, but it's faint. Ohmed out the mag and found it's shot (42,000 ohms). I guessing the points/coil and mag went at once? Since it appears the universal is working, i'm looking for a magneto for this model, if anybody has/knows of one. Since I bought two universals, I'm looking to attempt to see if one will work on my 552/H55 engine. Has anyone done this on the diode system yet? (I posted this on "engines" board also)
Looking for information on Kohler Engine
JerDecker63 posted a topic in EnginesI recently pulled this Wheel Horse out of my Father-In-Law's garage. He said that he picked it up some years ago at a yard sale. I am interested in getting it running again but as can be seen from the pictures the carb is missing. I am not having any luck surfing the web trying to figure out where to get parts. My Father-In-Law said that the engine ran but he pulled the carb for another project and never got back to this one. If anyone could help point me to a service manual I would greatly appreciate it. Muffler will be needed once this thing gets fired up!!

Finally "finished" my 552
Zeek posted a topic in Restorations, Modifications, & CustomizationsBought this 552 from Les Henry last fall. Originally I was planning a full restoration,but the more I looked at it the more I like the way it looked original. Soooo, I decided to wet sand and clear coat the whole thing and do redo the wheels & tires Before Not sure what it was, but I liked the original look, so here we go . . . Miller Tire paint . . . stuff works great, but I suspect based on consistency/smell/etc. you can do like rmaynard said and use latex paint with the same results. Finished product Best part is Mrs.Zeek liked it Might do some exhaust work yet :techie-eureka:
