RJ front weight!
Jennifer posted a topic in Implements and AttachmentsWell got my new weight yesterday! My valentines gift from my husband now has the front weight less likely to pop those wheelies!!!! There might be enough power still but doubt it…. He bought me the RJ from David in Arkansas a few years back we posted on the trip! The moment we saw the ad on here about the front weight we had to have it! Seize the moment, don’t know when ever come across another for sell…! So here I just wanted to share pictures of it! My tractor is a bit dirty from winter setting but i wipped it down just a little for the photo opt!!
UK RJ / Suburban Appreciation
Vaughan32850 posted a topic in Euro IntroductionsLet’s see all the RJ’s and suburbans that are in Europe / United Kingdom. Here’s my two RJ-58’s.
RMR-32 rebuild - Guidance needed
john7 posted a topic in Restorations, Modifications, & CustomizationsSo I started to do just a little touch up painting on my RMR-32 deck to get ready for mowing season and it just snowballed from there. I messed up my touch up by wet sanding it down to early, so that led to a "well I'll just take it completely apart and repaint everything". This is where the fun begins. Taking it apart revealed multiple issues: 1) Idler pulley bronze bearing is shot. 2) All 4 spindle bearings are shot. 3) Both cross shaft bearings are shot. 4) Cross shaft is bent. Here are these issues and the help that I need in greater detail: 1) The Idler Pulley Bronze Bearing: I mic'd it at 5/8" x 7/8" x 1". This is based on the OD and the length of the Idler bolt (part #1049), and the OD of the exposed portion of the bronze bearing in the idler pulley. Idler pulley (part #1602). 2 Questions: 1) What is the actual size for the bronze bearing? 2) Can this bearing even be replaced? It is in a peculiar place and appears to be held in 2 spots, one spot on either side of the pulley. I can't see inside until I cut the bearing out so it's hard to tell whether or not the is a tube of sort that makes contact with the bearing throughout the pulley, like the axle tube bearings. And it seams like this would, or could be a royal pain to set the new bearing if it only has two points of contact. 2) 4 Spindle Bearings: Wheel Horse part #1515. I ordered the Toro replacement. Part # 230-045. Well, I order NICE 1630 DCTNTG18's (3/4" IDx 1-5/8"OD x 1/2"W. The Toro replacement is a sealed bearing on both sides, so that's what I got. However, the originals that were in the deck were metal shielded on both sides. This got me thinking. The idea of the shielded bearing is to allow for grease to make it's way from my grease gun, through the zerk, onto the gears, through the bearings, and then eventually on the ground. My Question: Is it a bad idea to have gotten the sealed bearings for the spindles? Or will the sealed be fine fore weekly operation? 3) The Cross Shaft Bearings Are Shot: I was planning on replacing these with the same sealed NICE bearings. The question is the same as the spindle bearings. The originals were also shielded, so is it okay to replace with the sealed bearings? 4) Bent Cross Shaft (Part #3139): The bend is extremely miniscule; hardly noticeable at operating speed. I knew this years ago but ignored it. I've now figured out that this is why the cross shaft bearings are bad. Also, since the bearings are harder than the steel cross shaft, the bearings wallard out the cross shaft and they no longer seat properly on the cross shaft. Well, it's ground it down so much that the can't seat at all. Not to mention it's wearing the gears out too. My Questions: Is there someone here that has a good one that I can purchase? Or can anyone make one up for me? I've emailed Lowell Scholljegerdes but haven't heard back. He's made several parts for me over the years. Any help is appreciated.
Jennifer posted a topic in Implements and AttachmentsNeeding someone that has one of these WT-30 tillers to please load pictures of the belt tension thingy! We know there has been two at the big show one this past year another the year before! Hopefully they are members here! If so and you would be so kind to help us with this, Thanks in advance! Husband is trying to get ours useable. He got a 32" belt but something isn't going his way! LOL! Every thing we have gotten on this tiller shows a Kohler K91. We have in fact a Clinton 1200 that runs fabulous! The Tiller does not appear to have ever had red paint on it. Engine and tiller paint match. Also we are looking for the speed reduction to slow the tractor, CC-60 conversion assembly! Thanks everyone!
dclarke posted a topic in Restorations, Modifications, & CustomizationsI've started the rebuild of my RJ58 and the CBR32 sickle bar that fits it. I've been collecting parts for it for a few years so I thought I'd get started on it. I didn't take many pics of the tear down, mostly just close ups for reference. I've got the engine tore down and cleaned up, ready to go to the machine shop. This one will get bored .010 and the crank will be turned .010. I got the parts for the engine today so I'll be able to take it to the shop this week. While it's at the machine shop I'm going to have them bore and tap the exhaust port to 3/4" N.P.T. Any opinions on which rim is correct for the RJ would be appreciated I picked up new blades for the sickle at the show in Le Sueur last year, I finally got those changed. Now I need to get it and a bunch of small parts sent to be plated.
Big haul coming Thursday evening
12 hp Kohler posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsGoing to pick up a load of horses Thursday evening. D160, rj, suburban and c141. Will post pictures when I get them. I’m gonna try an get them all in one load so I am gonna have to use some of @pullstart loading skills. I think I can fit three in the truck and put the d160 on the trailer. Here is a little preview, that’s all you guys get for now unless you just happen to find ad for them
RJ-58 Side cover
RJcollector posted a topic in Transmissions and transaxlesHi, I'm rebuilding an RJ-58 tranny and its all together except the left side cover will not go on because the brake shaft is not lining up with the bearing. Its off by about 1/16th of an inch. The bearing on the other side cover is not cocked. The only parts that are not original in the tranny is the big differential gear and a couple bearings but they are the correct size bearings. It is the correct gear, its just out of another unit. Same part number and everything-3502. Did those big gears vary slightly in size during production? because it seems like if the big gear was about 1/16 smaller, I would be able to push the gears together and the cover would slight right on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
RJ58 with one heavy haul!
john7 posted a topic in Horses at workAs you can see, I don't need much of a reason to take the RJ for a spin!
My First wheelhorse
Camarokid posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsHello red square new member here, I would like to share my very first tractor with you all. A 1958 rj58 that I picked up the other day. This past Friday I left work a half hour early to make it to the bank to only travel 10 mins down the road from my job to purchase a rj. So I took it home and enjoyed my weekend staring at it! Can't play yet with it... Have some searching and work to do XD
RJ& Suburban Rim Options
oliver2-44 posted a topic in Restorations, Modifications, & CustomizationsAs many of you know, the correct rims (especially the front ones) for the RJ's and Suburban's are becoming pricy. So from a hobby (verses technically correct collector) What other front rms are the same or similar offset and look. Did any other brands use the RJ/suburban front rim, or use a similar looking rim. What other WH or other brand rear rims are similar.

first horse - a rj-58!
newt posted a topic in Introductionshi there everyone, I just picked up my first wheel horse on Saturday, an rj-58. I got a seized mower deck, a plow blade, which I think might be from a newer wheel horse. (it has the blade that angles) the best part was I got the cbr sickle for it, and its in really good shape! I have a few green tractors, a bunch of red and silver ones, I thought its time to try a different brand! now I found a lawn ranger not far from me! and so the sickness continues! I'm sure I will be on for questions about the rj, so thanks in advance! - newt
Don_WH posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsWhat years did the rj 's have the small cast steering wheel ?
What old WH is this? Brought it Home 7-25
oliver2-44 posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsI need some help identifying this WH. I'm working on learning the details to look for, so here's what I see! The hood stand is solid. The front axle is swept across the width and swept back. The lines on the top of the hood seem to fade out and not go all the way back it has a solid seat pan. The extra frame space in front of the hood looks too long? so would that make it a 1960 Suburban 400 or 401, or could it be an RJ? it's in poor shape, but maybe a parts tractor, or the start of an RJ restore. is the hole to the back left of the hood not factory? it's been for sale for a while, and I'm about ready to check if the price is getting a lot more negotiable
Convert From Ohio
BradyS posted a topic in IntroductionsYes you read that right I'm a convert, well sort of. I have been into Cub Cadets for several years now and decided to go out on a limb and buy The Wheel Horse Story Book. And to make a long story short I've been bit by the bug. I now have an unhealthy desire for an RJ 35 which is apparently the hardest model ever too find because I've been looking around for about 8 months with no luck. The closest big City to me would be Hamilton Ohio anyone else close to me?
Oil Bath MOD
clemedc posted a topic in EnginesDoes anyone have pic or a guide how to modify a metal oil bath filter to work on an RJ. By that I mean convert it to up flow instead of down flow. I also need the Elbow from carb to breather if anyone has one. I guess I should ask if this OIL BATH filter from a 6hp briggs will work b4 I attempt to modify it. Does anyone know if it will work, and does anyone have pics or a tutorial? I learn better by seeing.
Need help with RJ year
Geno posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsJust brought this back from Jersey. It has the wrong motor, my dealer friend said it was supposed to have a 4hp Kohler that he has but has to find it. Got the tractor, slot hitch, snow plow with hookup, rear plow + deck. I'm trying to find out if it's a 58 or 59 from the experts here.
`55 Cable Steer project
russtiron posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsHi all I have a project tractor and have a couple of questions.The steering shaft has been cut to adapt another steering wheel and I was wondering if the steering shaft length is the same on the early cast wheel and the later regular wheel,also the front wheels have been replaced ,I know early tractors have a narrow rim,does this continue through the rj59`s? Thanks! Chuck
has anyone ever seen a RJ lift like this?
clemedc posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsI bought this RJ at the big show and I was wondering if anyone has ever seen a lift like this before? Does anyone know why its different?
First Wheel horse
russtiron posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsI have purchased my first Wheel horse tractor ,after years of wanting one finally made a purchase.With Wheel horse tractors you learn there is probably the most loyal following of any brand,and deals are hard to come by ,unless you are lucky or(in the right place at the right time)wanting an early model doesn`t make things any easier.Over the last two weeks I have learned more about the RJ (through Redsquare) than I thought there was to know.Everyone here already knows these things,so onto my purchase.The tractor a 1955 RJ35 model came from a member here.I`ts mostly complete,but needs some work to be operable.Making it run is the fun part.

Early production RJ35 question
Hammerhead posted a topic in Wheel Horse TractorsMy early production RJ35 has only one hole in the frame where the muffler pipe crosses the vertical frame peice. Most all RJ's I've seen have 2 holes there for a U shaped muffler clamp type of bolt. Is there a single hole version that just loops over it and only bolts on with one bolt? Thanks in advance for your info on this matter....Hammerhead :popcorn:
cgenthe posted a topic in Transmissions and transaxlesCan you interchange pinion/differential gears or should you always keep a set together? I have 2 sets- one has a good diff, the other has a good pinion. Will the differences in wear lead to trouble?
