    Is this what I have?

    Okay friends husband and I brought home another mutilated mutation that I felt sorry for and wanted to fix…. Questions will it run?? Lol… what model for sure? So I believe it’s an 854 and would like feed back to confirm.. lots of stuff coming off… has the k181s tag on the engine! Two piece gas tank! So if my friends on here would agree or disagree I would be able to see how much I have been learning over the years!
  6. Hello y'all, I hope everyone is staying safe and staying healthy. If not, i pray that you or whoever is afflicted be healed soon. I hope to learn a lot from the forums and hopefully can use some of you young whipper snappers for your brains (ideas, how to's and such). Lol. Btw i am only 30, much respect for the older generation(s)! For me, well... If i would have found this 5-6 years ago, i would have said I am new to Wheel Horse. That is about the time my dad bought the 312-8 (that i now own). That purchase and talking to my dad about implements/attachments that i could purchase is what got me so interested in wheel horse. Like i mentioned, i started with a 312-8. When i purchased from my dad, it came with a mower pan and a snowblower (wrong model tho). Wisconsin winters were brutal and a regular snowblower was taking me 2+ hours to clear the driveway. Thats when i bought my B-100, included in that deal was a mower pan and a plow. Boy... that B-100 has plowed a lot of snow. I love it. I had also bought 2 lack luster tillers at some auctions. Well, that made me look for a tiller attachment. Found one relatively close and went to go look. $200 later, i had a tiller loaded into my truck and i had asked if he had the tillers mount for the rear axle. He said he wasnt sure, but he has a wheel horse sitting in the back. Told me to go look. I look over this 854, and there is no rear mount. Just as im getting up, he asks if i want the tractor. I said i only got the $200 i gave you. He said free of charge. And thats how i gained my 854. (854s hood is in my shop) I want to start restoring my wheel horses, pretty paint, new decals, clean them up. I am proud of what i own. And now im looking at getting a D200 with FEL and a backhoe. Its a sketch time to buy but i could use the tractor for house and cabin work. Pics are attached. Please ignore the messes. They aint the prettiest tractors, but they all run.

    854 mowing then shuts down!

    Hello everyone! Got a real puzzle here! Husband has visited with some on here by phone, but he is getting really frustrated! Can anyone help us with this tractor! It will be mowing fine, then start dying off and on at different time frames! Temperature out side sometimes seems to play a part but could be coincident. So he has put more and more money in this and not fixed the issue! A list of what he has done thus far! new Fuel line new condensor new points new carb new plug wire new spark plug Used fuel pump new coil new switch new battery new head gasket soaked it with marvel mystry oil soaked it with sea foam removed fuel tank cleaned and blew out cleaned sediment bowl. Brand new one is on its way changed oil all 4 brand new belts
  8. I found this 854 on Craigslist for $650 has plow and mower deck and is supposed to run, it has this crazy saw mill on the front of it and I am wondering if it is original. What do you guys think it is very interesting.
  9. Well now that I can post pictures we wanted to share this with all of you! Here is the beauty that my husband is really proud of and now owns after a year of wishing and wanting lol. He picked it up last part of January 2020!! The old man bought it a few years ago from the original the owner we understand. Now the guy my husband bought it from, said his health wasn’t up to it so he set this tractor inside his shed strapped on pallets and covered up! He posted it for sale several times over the past year, but we felt it was out of price range at the time. Then it disappeared so we figured it sold then it came up again different pictures! However many conversations later we have it in our heard! They both settled on a price both could be happy with! So our youngest daughter made the trip with her Dad to get this 854 and have some quality father daughter time as I couldn’t get off work. It’s a surprisingly well kept surviver, having the original paint. The blade has its decals, original paint and the mower deck the same plus it has new wheel horse brand belts on it...! It was a day in travel time but the following day he was playing on it.. Replaced the battery, added gas! Then noticed gasket on the fuel tank had dried out and was leaking and the fuel pump was leaking against the engine as the gasket was placed up side down. That has now been replaced and a gasket for the fuel tank ordered but it stopped leaking so the gasket is on hand if it starts again. He added rear weights and chains and it’s now his go to tractor! The HY-3 lift allows him precise height of the blade! Has used it twice moving snow and comes up with excuses to use it for other things! IMG_7087.MOV
  10. Another interesting score here today. So I get a text from the nephew the other day about some horses for sale on FB. The ad was put up Monday the 3rd sometime in the evening. Mr. and Mr. Seller said the computer start smoking and phone was getting texts so fast it went dead. More on the Sellers and approaching a potential buy later. Seller and I we really hit it off, more on that later too, so he threw in a nice little complete AND unmolested L167 AND a brand new square pan seat cover... . Will fit in nice with my '67 line up & now don't feel so bad about missing the 702 labeled 701. (701 with a 702 belt guard). I gotta get crusin cause Dan is coming over to pick one up but here is a few that I got. Missing a few things and POized for sure but both savable. Smokin deal.... 3 bills for the whole load!

    The latest purchase...

    The model 854 has been on my wanted lost for a long time! Whenever one comes up for sale it’s either a zillion miles away, beat beyond reasonable repair or overpriced (in my opinion anyway). So when @stevebo calls to say he has a nice 854 for sale AND he is giving me first refusal how could I say no! I have dropped over $7500 on a couple home projects in the last 30 days so my slush funds were hurting, but Steve gave me a week to make my decision. Of course I bought it and my wife and I rode out to Steves today for it. This one has had a couple previous Connecticut owners (we love to buy and sell among ourselves 😁) Pics of course....
  15. Old red


    FYI. I was searching for replacement tires for the front on my 854, and i wanted as close to the originals as possible. I found Kenda Load-Star (K371). These are 4ply trailer tires, which is "over-kill", however they are 99% identical to the originals. They were $15 each on recstuff.com. Im really happy with them. Maybe everyone already knew about them, but i figured i would throw it out there anyway.
  16. Old red


    I have a co-worker with a plow he used on an early 90's wheel horse. He's gonna throw it out. Does anyone know if something like that would mount up to my 854 with little fabrication, or is it way off the mark. I havnt seen it yet.
  17. rjg854


    I'm looking for you wonderful folks here at to critic this new purchase. Tell me what you think it may need or what possibilities there are for it. I'm open to all suggestions and information. It seems to be in good shape, and mostly complete.
  18. Really excited about finding this great 854 last week. Planning on spending some time this fall getting her running nice and showing the K181 some love. Planning on restoring the old girl over the winter. I will post progress pictures here as I get the project under way.
  19. I'm coming up on my 1 year anniversary as a Wheel Horse owner, and also nearing completion of a refurbishing project on the 854 I bought a year ago. While I'm waiting for the paint to cure before I put it all back together, and since it's too hot this week to work in the garage anyway, I thought I would put up a thread documenting the progress the past year. I always find motivation and some good ideas from other people's project posts, so I hope I can return the favor. Some of this is repeat from a few of my other posts, but I thought it would be nice to have it all in one thread. I will add to the post as I track down the pictures and get it written. To recap, late last July I bought the 854 as a non-runner. It was all original, complete, and other than surface rust, in pretty decent shape. It had a mower deck, rear slot hitch, and snowplow bracket on the rear axle. I had admired the round hoods for a while, and hadn't seen that many come up for sale on Craigslist in the area. I paid $200 for it, which I felt was a little risky not really knowing what it was going to need to get it running, but I convinced myself I had to have it. After getting it home and getting it cleaned up, I did a little more detailed inspection. It didn't have any major signs of abuse, but the hood was cracked at the seam on one side, and the seat was cracked too. I got a different seat for it from the seller, so the seat wasn't really a problem. Getting it running also turned out to not be too difficult, it just needed some fresh gas and the spark plug wire connection cleaned at the coil. Once running, however, it did smoke. It would somewhat clear up if sitting idle or cruising around the yard, but under load the smoke was persistent. Also with fresh fluids and gas, I could could see that the gas tank seal leaked (surprise, surprise) as did the axle and brake seals in the transmission. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlFowHy9zjY I like all my tractors in my collection to have a purpose, and this one was to be my "garden tractor". Part of the attraction of this one was the slot hitch and Wheel Horse attachments that could be used in tending a garden. My initial plan was to stop the leaks, and eventually rebuild the engine to clear up the smoke, but otherwise leave it original. I liked the patina and original decals it had, and I knew I wouldn't feel guilty about using it if I left it in it's "work clothes". The axle seals were easy to get from my local Toro dealer (Part No. 100863). Getting them installed was not so easy. One hub came right off, but the other was stuck. This explained the chunk it had out of it, likely from an earlier, unsuccessful attempt to change that leaky seal. It took alot of heat to get it off, but it did eventually come off. While I had the torch out and the rear of the tractor partially disassembled, I replaced the pin for the slot hitch. It also took alot of heating and beating, but it did come out. New seals on the axles and brake were successful in keeping the oil in, and I put on a new shifter boot to keep the water and dirt out. Following the advice I found on here, a 6" hitch pin did the trick as a replacement for the slot hitch. As luck would have it, around this time I found a Commando 8 come up for sale nearby for $100. I bought it mainly for the decentbar tires it had on it and the hopes that I could just swap in the K181 Kohler from it to resolve my engine smoking problem. As it turned out, the engine on it was a K161 from a 753. It ran OK, but smoked worse than the engine I already had. Still, the tires were good, and it provided me with a drawbar and a good hub to replace the one with the chunk missing. My repair of the leaky fuel tank resulted in only limited success. Fortunately, all the screws came out without breaking any. A couple were missing, and there looked like some kind of caulk or form-a-gasket on there, so obviously this wasn't the first attempt to fix the tank (nor would it be the last). I could have bought the tank gasket (Part No. 4452) from Toro, but since I already had the supplies on hand I decided to make my own gasket and seal the tank with Red-Kote. I traced the tank and cut out a gasket on 1/32 gasket paper. After installing the new gasket, I coated it with the Red-Kote. Despite my best efforts, it still leaked. Gas was no longer cascading down the side of the pedestal, but it was still slowly seeping out. Still, that was enough of an improvement for the time being to feel comfortable using it. Working this tractor is what I got it for, so I was extremely happy to find a plow and cultivator for it to go with the disc I already had. A fall plow day nearby provided me a good opportunity to give the old 'horse a little workout. It didn't impress anybody there with it's rusty complexion, smoking engine and yellow wheel weights, but I was pretty happy that the little 8HP tractor could plow with the "big boys". Shortly after the plow day, I plowed up the garden at my house. It was still fun, but neither my wife nor the neighbors seemed to appreciate the engine smoke much. The hood also was rattling some, and I was concerned about the crack getting worse. I decided my next projects on the tractor would be to address those issues. I took the hood to a local weld shop to repair. They did a decent job, but it had obviously been repaired. So much for that all original appearance. I also inspected the engine. Tolerances were within spec, so I planned to just do a hone, new rings and new valves/guides. Before I got around to that though, Christmas came and the 854 slid to the back burner for most of the winter. That's probably more than enough for now. I'll continue my story to cover the work on it since then in the next few days. Dave
