My vote is for just cleaning it up and keeping it as is!  Well, maybe upgrading the seat, too.  Nice looking machine!

Heck, that doesn't look so "Sad and Sorry" as you put it. (Or do I feel that way because I actually bought a WH in what seems to be much worse shape, although running and functioning) ;)

But seriously, that things looking good with just a cleanup so far. I cant believe the hubcaps.. nice.

Nice 416 tractor you have. I have a 416-8 manual transmission version that I upgraded the engine to a briggs and Stratton vanguard v-twin 23 hp engine.

Not to drift off from the thread but how do you like the Briggs conversion? Was it a S.E.W. kit? Fuel economy any better than the Onan? I'm sure 23hp is more than the original 16?  Wondering just in case my 520/P220 dies and instead of rebuilding repowering thanks,Jeff.

Hello Wvhillbilly,

Yes I like the conversion kit from small engine warehouse. It works well and the brackets included made the swap easier to do. If I put it in third gear and use full throttle I can do a small wheelie woo hoo !!   The fuel economy seems to be good.

Good deal I know it was a bit pricey but I'm sure a warranty on the unit and no worries over if the rebuilt Onan would hold up, 1 more question or 2 how does it sound compared to the Onan and any pics? Thanks Jeff.

Dare I say I don't think I know of a Briggs engine that does not leak oil (even new ones), if it isn't leaking then there is no oil it, fill the oil to the correct level again.

 

Slightly back on topic, I am getting the head gaskets to de-carbonise the cylinders as the machine has done 467 hours (I know the hour meter works as I have put 2 hours on it playing around). I have not pressure tested the cylinders but pulling the heads off a 20 year old engine will let me see if there is anything lurking since I have no idea why you buy and expensive tractor and not use it (I see LT's at work that have 4 times the hours, they are wrecked though but half the age).

The Briggs engine sounds very nice and does not have that annoying hunting sound my old Onan engine had. It does not leak oil and I run Mobil1 synthetic oil in it.

Your C-161 is a nice looking beast, shame we didn't get any black hoods in Australia

Small update, the LH hub has moved about 3mm off the axle and of course it doesn't want to budge, should I pull it?

3mm ?

I would not worry too much about that little bit. Just make sure the set screws are tight.

Thanks Cleat, there is black pain even on the inside of the hub, almost like it has been like that for years

It's hard to see in this picture but the left side hub on my 520HC has a small gap as well.

The axles move in and out a tiny bit on all of my machines (even my truck) so I don't worry too much.

There's actually a "fiber" spacer between the hubs and the axle housing on both my 520s, I believe it's there to keep the hub from wearing on the housing unless someone knows otherwise,Jeff.

Mine have this as well. Kind of a plastic thrust washer.

Nice tractor, we used to have a 416-6 speed ... I think. I don't know, that was back before I got interested in tractors. Anyway we traded it and a green and yellow thing for a gravely zero turn, it was sad to see it go because it was a nice tractor it used to be my grandparent's. I know exactly where it still sits. At the dealer's grave yard slowly rusting away, sad really.

      Wheel horse 416H that was converted into an eight speed.  Onan engine with 627 Hours.  PM with phone # and best time to call for more details.  Need to sell to make room for other projects, and I am tired of working on it.  Price is firm.

      Well I finally pulled the trigger and brought this one home. Along with some extras The deck is included not pictured. Well I took a few photos to start with. Now is the time to research, make a list of missing parts then tear it down and bring her back to life.

      UPDATED: complete running tractor with 48 inch side-discharge mower deck and 42 inch snow plow. 17 h.p., hydrostat trans, headlamps, 1 qt. of red paint. I am serious about selling, please be serious about buying before contacting me. I use it weekly. very strong engine. can be operated by hand lever or optional foot pedal. this mower deck is a 48" cut; not a 42" cut as previously stated! 42" deck is no longer available.

      I have a 1991 520h and I can mow for hours on end until I turn the tractor off and then restart it. The tractor restarts nice and easy warm but when I engage the PTO (mower deck) it slowly kills the engine. If I disengage the PTO it revs right back up. It is an electric clutch. I was thinking if it was a kill switch wrong I would imagine it would kill it a lot faster than allowing me to cycle on and off the PTO. Any thoughts?

      My 518-H runs and mows for about 15 minutes then stalls.  It'll rest for 10, then run for 15 and stall.  The oil level is right, air cleaner is clear and it has new spark plugs.  Sounds like overheating, but it isn't really very hot to the touch.  Onan twin.  I brought it to the CT Onan dealer and he couldn't fix it, but frankly, they work on generators all day and I don't think they wanted to bother.  Any ideas?
