Got the belt today:)

I would be curious to know the rough cost of powedercoating. No doubt it's more durable....

 

Looks awesome!

My deck wheels are a product that my company produces for the experimental aircraft market

garden tractor free zone in America.

I have never been to Carson City, but other parts of Nevada I have been to had no grass, little wonder there is a shortage of supply.

:text-coolphotos:   You are doing a great job. One thing I noticed is the mower drive belt should be moved to the inner grove of the PTO.

Hi All

I installed a NAPA 5L820 Vee Belt on my tractor and it slaps :o how do I prevent this from happening, is there a difference in drive belt design that would cause this to occur?

Hi All

I installed my new 7374 belt yesterday with outstanding results. My new belt was delivered in a bag instead of a cardboard sleeve. I believe that the sleeve will cause the belt to take a set in the location of the radius:angry-nono: and then transmit a slap to the guards of my 

Tractor. In the future I will try to buy belts ina bag:)

I just bought a C121 for $50. The previous owner ( 2 owners ago) thought they would make a pulling tractor out of it and tore it all apart and put a V twin on it.......anyway, they got bored or couldn't get it figured out and sold it to the the guy I bought it from....they put the old Kohler back on but never got it all back together. The wiring is a nightmare .......obviously they didn't take pictures!  

I'm stoked to start that project! I have a b-80 to use as a guide to putting the wiring back to correct and I think I have all the missing parts too. This will be my 3rd Wheel Horse.     But, probably not my last, lol.

did you ever find photos of correct routing of the fuel line?  mine hangs on the outside of the frame and gets into the way of the clutch pedal linkage. using your photos to help fix and restore my 79 c121 8 speed.
