Thank you all for the warm welcome greetings! 

 

Neil, I asked my upholsterer about doing the same work in leather, but they said they would not recommend it mainly because of the risk of exposure to water, and also, it would be more expensive. 

 

Currently I preparing the seat pan for paint, it will be done in a wrinkle black finish.

Last week we had some snow, the old commando had to fight a bit, I think I found the limit for what can be accomplished without wheel weights... I'm glad i did the starter/generator last year, I never became friend with the pullstart.

You could gain several pounds very inexpensively by filling your tires with Recreational Vehicle Antifreeze or other liquid that will not freeze.

SIZE                 GALLONS Per Tire                WEIGHT in POUNDS

  • 16x6.50-8               2.0                            21.4
  • 18x7.00-8               3.0                            32.1 
  • 18x8.50-8               3.4                            36.4 
  • 18x9.50-8               4.0                            42.8
  • 23x8.50-12             5.5                            58.9
  • 23x10.50-12           6.8                            72.8

Thank you. Do the table values correspond to a 100% fill ratio? ...or do you have to leave some air for the comfort?

There needs to be some air in the tire. With the valve stem at the top of the wheel, the ones I have filled have a liquid level all the way up to the valve, then the air is added primarily to keep the tire seated firmly on the rim. Tire dealers who work on industrial or agricultural vehicles can probably do the job for you.

      Finally got the stack installed, getting that threaded pipe out of the head needed a little persuasion but all went well, and it looks fantastic thanks to Jim Kemp!

      I am in the process of restoring a 72 Raider 8 and decided I would beef it up a bit with a custom stack. Currently the motor is out of the tractor and am waiting for a rod, piston, cam shaft and bearing set. Motor was in total self destruct mode when the previous owner didn't check the oil 🙄🤦🏼‍♂️ So I made this stainless stack out of sch 5, 2 inch pipe and reduced to 1". Decided I didn't like to looks of threaded pipe so I found a couple valve parts to act as the flanges, and am going to weld the other flange to a threaded nipple and screw into the engine block. Let me know what you think! Trying to decide if I should leave it flat, mitre it or weld a turnout on it!

      Also, I'm going to hold out for now until I can hear it run straight piped, but considering rolling a stainless screen down to 1" and packing gap between the stack and the screen with muffler packing. Has anyone else ever done this? Looking for ideas and comments are welcome!

      42" Blade with straight pivot handle.  Based on the serial number I believe it was manufactured sometime around 1974 (if anyone knows for sure I'll happily be corrected).
      It comes with the rear mount, but I don't have a lift linkage for it.
       
      As with the snow blower I have listed here in the Red Square Classifieds, I will be driving back East from Denver to Chicago, then on to Buffalo the weekend before Father's Day and am willing to bring to the show June 23rd or arrange delivery along the drive back East.
       
      Call, text, or message me here on Red Square if interested.

      Hi everyone!
      Happy to be a part of the world wide Wheel Horse family.
      Bought my first Wheel Horse 2016, and my second one too. Both from the 70's.
      I am very impressed with the smart functions, and how easy they are to use, and work with.
      Myself and my neighbour now own 5 Wheel Horses, and have a lot of fun, as WH nerds.
      This coming winter it's time to take apart one tractor each, to get them in great condition.
       
      Have fun!
