  1. Hello all. I am looking for suggestions on adapting the pto from my C series tractor to a harbor freight predator 420 13hp engine. I know the predator motors are a controversial topic however it is the route I have chosen for this particular machine. The intent was to mostly use it for plowing so no PTO required but it would be handy to have. Looking to hear from someone that has successfully done the swap that may offer any advice before I attempt to transfer it over. Just looking for any general pointers that will help me along the way to make it go as smoothly as possible.
  2. I am new to this group. I have my sons collection of Wheel Horse tractors that are definitely rare models. He still has one to pick up that’s dual wheel and was purchased from Peabody Coal Co. This is the perfect site to get involved with. The best advice comes from folks that are hands on.. had to be their own machine shop. Nothing compares to the knowledge in this group.! But my first topic is this 19hp Craftsman INDY 500 limited edition model. I was reading a topic on here about the 18hp and 20hp models, but cannot find a single replica of this tractor on ANY site or e-bay. We live near central Ohio, so I’m assuming it’s a regional release.The Briggs engine lobes like a medium cam in a V8. We thought it was an intermittent miss, but it’s not missing a bit. The engine is the strongest riding tractor I’ve ever operated. It will literally cook the deck belt in high grass before dragging the engine down. Very wide and lower to the ground. I never got the size, but the rearend is all tires.! Looks like a dragster from behind.. almost gives the appearance of shortened axle tubes in a hot rod. Just wondering if anybodys ever seen this particular model. My next top is will be about the C160 total hydraulic Wheel Horse he just acquired. Claim they were specially made for snow removal.

    wheel horse charger 9

    I own a Charger 9, it is a 68 and I am wondering what I should ask for it. I personally want to trade it, just cannot find anything worth my efforts. I found a younger gentleman in his 20's, he's over 650 miles away from me and he has himself a raider 12, I want it just he wants two tractors for it. I personally feel my Charger is worth more than 250, as it is one of a kind. Please, let me know.

    Well guys, I guess it's so long! Someone bought my JD 212 yesterday, and couldn't refuse the money for my 520 today.😣 I am no longer a wh owner, so doesnt feel right hangin' out with you guys. Thanks Terry good luck all. See you down the road.
  8. Hey guys, kinda gotta brag about this one. Got my sleeve hitch out of Alabama today for $100! Got part # 85518 from you guys,( thank you very much) got lucky and found it on ebay. Took a chance and ponied up the $100 with only a picture of the box. It's dated '93 so sure it's right for my 520h and wouldn't you know, everything's there! Couldn't have done it without the wonderful members of this forum. Thanks Terry. Just what I need for my brinly plow, disk, tater plow, and backblade!
  9. I bought this from a man in Indiana who said that his dad bought it new in 1964. There was no doubt in his mind that it was a wheel horse wagon but i cant seem to find any info or pictures of one like this. It is a four wheel wagon with sides that pull right off. It has the same wheels that are on the front of the wheel horse tractors and the original paint under the primer is red. I just want to make sure its a wheel horse before i put the sticker on it. Thanks!

    Lookin for help

    Well here's my situation I have this 76 d1-60 that I have about $200 into plus countless hours of work to get it mowing again. Everything went fairly well last summer. But in the fall I noticed a slow drip coming from the transaxle. And the starter went out also shortly after the leak. i need a mower that I can count on. I love this one when it works. So should I sell or take it in to fix all the issues. And can anyone tell me a ball park number as to what it's worth compared to what it would cost to fix it. the bad... leak in transaxle leak at hydro motor and drive shaft (I rebuilt the hydro motor following a tutorial on RS but didn't replace the seal where the shaft exits the motor.) bad starter the good.. it has never seen snow it was only mowed with and alway been in climate controlled storage. it has a newer motor as of 1996(linnamar twin 790) with less than 1500hrs have all original manuals what do you think I should do. Im not made of money so as much as I would love to a complete restore is not an option.
  11. Hello everyone, I have finally joined Red Square after several weeks of reading posts and looking at the awesome pictures everyone posts of their WH’s. I guess you could say I need a place where I can talk to people who have the same “addiction†as me because I can tell you my wife is about ready to make me move out to the garage if I don’t stop talking about WH’s to her. Anyway, I just wanted to post my summer project I just completed two weeks ago. My dad gave me a 1983 Wheel Horse GT-1642 Work Horse back in May. He didn’t have any use for it sitting around his house after he stole the deck off it for his 520 (I owe my dad and my uncle for getting me hooked on Wheel Horses). The tractor was in pretty rough shape so I figured I would give it a go and see how I could do restoring the old beast. I completely stripped it down and got the frame and wheels painted just in time for the big show in Aredntsville. I put the rusty sheet metal back on the frame so I had it to ride around the grounds. The next week I stripped it back down to the wheels and chassis. I sand blasted all the sheet metal down to bare metal so I have a fresh rust free surface to work with. Once all the body prep work was done, I primed it with Rustoleum rust prohibiting primer and then shot it with Rustoleum Smoke Grey oil based enamel. I know the color is a darker than the way they came from South Bend but I liked the color on the tractor. I ordered new decals from Redo Your Horse, which the quality is absolutely amazing!! After some wet sanding and buffing I assembled it back together, stickered it, installed a new seat, and I have been using is to pull my lawn sweep after I mow with the 520. It’s a blast to drive. This is an awesome forum site!!! Thanks for letting me share!!
  12. will a 6900759 blower fit my 529h 6900759? I meant to say 520h my 520h is 6900148

    Broken line

    Hello Redsquare, I was just working on taking apart me engine when the little metal fuel line that runs from the fuel pump to the carb broke. The rubber on the end inside the bolt was old and hard and snapped off. Is it reapairable? Can I replace it? Thanks, Eric
  14. Hey everyone. As you know I'm hot and heavy into wheel horses now and many of you have answered many of my questions and helped me TREMENDOUSLY. But I've finally decided to give my horse a paint job and I thought I'd post pictures along the way. Here's the engine cleaned,sanded, prepped and primed. This is the first thing I've done. :)

    how to run throttle and choke cables

    Does anyone have any good pictures of where the throttle and choke cable goes on my 753? I'm thinking one runs over the head and the other goes under the engine shround but I can't remember for sure. Any pics or help is appreciated. Also does the little hooked spring on the govenor arm go through the notch on this disc? Thanks in advance.

    520xi starting issue

    My 520xi is having trouble starting. Sometimes when I try to start it I hear the click of the solenoid but it doesn't turn. Usually trying a few more times and it will turn over and start. The manual mentions something about servicing the starter. Does the service consist of cleaning or replacing the brushes? Brushes look a bit pricey when I looked for them. Also, I'm going to replace the battery. The Interstate workaholic battery has worked quite well! Hopefully the new ones are just as good!

    Snagged a 520H

    I bought the 94 520H that was listed on Red Square classified. Very happy with it. 350 hours. 48" SD deck. Should get years of use out of it. I have 93 520H with 980 hours. It is in fair to good condition. I can't decide if I should keep it for parts or sell it. It seems I've heard more bad than good things about Onan 20hp motors. I think the 93 520H tractor would be worth about $750-$850 with the 42" RD deck and mule drive. Feel free to post good stories and bad nightmares about Omen motors.....I mean Onan. I am curious.
  21. I have a 417-A with a mid-hydraulic lift for the mower deck. I want to use this lift for implements and I am unsure how to use this lift cylinder for attachments. Does any one have picks of a mower broke down, so that I could see the routing of cable/ chain to the rear of the mower?

    856 Rear End

    I went to start my 856 this morning to plow snow and I noticed the rear end was locked up (again). I took the shifter out and looked in the hole. There was no rust. And the I took a large screwdriver and tried to move the forks. They moved. Im all out of ideas. does anyone know what could be wrong with it?
  23. i am a new member. i have a 1965 875 wheel-o-matic. the engine is knocking and smoking, so, i decided to replace it with the parts tractor motor. identical motor. in order to get the old motor off, i removed what appears to be the mower deck or snow blower mounting plates. on the right side foot rest, there was a spring tensioned pully. i didn't think i was going to need it for running a snow plow blade. long story short, i can't figure out how the belt and this spring tensioned pully need to be installed. looked all over the internet for a belt diagram, no luck, pleanty of mowerdeck and snowblower info. i am close to throwing in the towel and taking it in to a high dollar repair place. i don't want to have the wife chew on my rear anymore that i deserve, somebody, please help me!!!!!!!
  24. Hello everyone!! A few weeks ago I was fortunate to stumble upon a pretty nice 312-8 with 675 hours. Much to my wife’s dismay, I drug it home but once she took it for a drive she was smiling from ear to ear. She actually said she liked it better than my 520. I kinda scratched my head and just said ok dear. Anyway, I decided I wanted to put 23x10.5-12 on the rear of my 312 instead of the 23x9.5-12 that is stock. I found a set of Goodyear tires without rims at a consignment sale that came home with me. Then the hunt for rims began….Low and behold I found a set of rims that my neighbor had laying around his garage. I was told they came off his CASE and he didn’t need them anymore. So tonight I decided to scuff them up and paint them metallic silver to cover up the red. I have yet to find an exact match to the factory silver WH put on their wheels that I am happy with. I have found though, if you have a nick in your factory rim, a Sharpie Metallic Silver marker is the best for the task of touching it up. IMHO. So my question is this: I blended a mix of metallic silver and Smoke Grey paint to produce the color of the rims below, do they look close enough for horse shoes? I can’t decide if I’m happy with the color or not or if I need to do a grey metallic. I’d appreciate any opinion. Thanks!! Below is also a pic of the 312 they wheels and tires are going on.
  25. I was wondering if anyone has greased sealed bearings before. I replaced the old bearings and they still spun freely. Let me know if anyone has done this or had some success with it. I have some needles that would work. Am I just wasting my time?
