Bought a couple of horses several days ago and picked them up today and brought them home.

Neither one runs right now and I'm not sure what is wrong with each one, but I got them reasonable and if I have to part one or the other out, I will get my money back and then some!

 

Here are the requested pictures!

1981 C-125 (with a 14 HP Kohler Magnum transplant)

The C-125 looks like it's got a transplanted Kohler Magnum 14 hp engine in it - very good!

Nice score!

Sometimes.....I think these things should be called Wheel Rabbits!!!  Because they multiply like them sometimes.

Had the time to mess with the C-160 this afternoon.

I towed it into the garage and removed the hood for easier access to the engine.

Starter was rusted tight, so I disassembled it, cleaned it up and reassembled it and it worked.

Had to put a coil and condenser on it. Wired it up, put the battery charger on it, and adjusted the points.

Cranked it and had good spark!

Shot a little gasoline into the carb, jumped the solenoid, and the sucker fired right up and died.

Got my spary bottle of gasoline and kept it running for a couple minutes just spraying fuel into the carb.

 

Will work on the fuel system tomorrow....Should be driving around in a few days!

Ken:  I looked at two C-160 hydros with hydraulic lift today and both were $1000 each but looked a lot worse than yours!   They are a good tractor.  Make sure to check the frame at back where transmission bolts on for cracks.   A common issue with C-160.    That 16 horse in front weighs a lot!

It's the C-160 you had success with and that is the one that I would have highly valued of the two you picked up! That is great news that the motor cranks and runs! Now you need to cross your fingers on the hydro being good!

      I put together a replacement for the missing clutch handle today.  I like it so much I'm going to make one for my C-175 also!
       
      Now I need to figure out how come it's not staying DISengaged.  It EASILY jumps off the detent at the slightest touch.  It appears to be a new bracket / lever, judging from the paint on it, but I have not investigated further yet.  Wonder if anyone has run into this and solved it?
       

       
      What is the correct routing for the throttle cable?  This just CAN'T be correct!  It's right on the cooling fins of the engine, it's done melted the skin off the cable!  Maybe it's a replacement cable and simply too short?
      If someone could post a pic of the correct routing it would be much appreciated!
       

       
      While looking that over I noticed some oil 'weepage' at the front of the engine.  To me it appears to be concentrated right under the fuel pump.  I presume there's a gasket there that may need to be refreshed?
       

       

       
      The only other suspect is the valve cover but and that appears to be a little weepy too, but  more so the fuel pump. 
       

       
      What say you K301 gurus?

      Looking for a Kohler K341 engine for my C-160.

      The C-160 just wasn't running right. Started with new points, plug, filters. 
      I had put an aftermarket carb on it but had found a good Carter N in the correct size so I rebuilt it.
      Got it started this afternoon and had it running at about half speed to warm it up so I could make the final adjustment to the carb.
      It purred along for about 4 minutes and just quit.
      First thought was "out of gas".  Looked in the tank and sure enough it was really low so I filled it up.
      Tried to start it again .....NOTHING
      Went and rechecked everything ....NOPE
      Got out the can of starting fluid...NOPE
      Pulled the plug and noticed the gap was ZERO.  Re-gapped and tried again.  Same thing again no gap.
      Pulled the head.  Looked normal.
      When I cycled the engine I noticed that the exhaust valve didn't fully retract.
      Was able to remove the exhaust valve with two fingers!!!!!
      Guess I am in the market for a new set of keepers and a few gaskets.

      Hi everyone,

      I bought a wheel-horse c-160 a while back, and did some work with it.
      One day the rear axle housing broke:


      I was thinking about changing the part or soldering the broken pieces.
      Does anyone know where to order this part? Or has any idea of the potential cost of a soldering job?
      Thank you in advance!

      Picked up this C-160 a couple of weeks ago from Joe out in SW PA.  It had been on the Classified page for a while so I went out for a look.  Got her home and got a new battery, new plug, new plug wire and some fresh gas.  She purrs like a BIG kitten!  Drove her around the yard a few times and put her on the lift.  Got some of the parts I am going to need at the BS and some more from Jay in GA.  Wife told me I have to finish the all the trim work in her "home theatre" in the basement so......... I do get a few hours in.  After all, "Ya gotta let the finish dry between coats"
