Hi folks, me and the gal pal were on our way to the wheelhorse motherland ( southbend), to shop for some wedding rings. So we go down little country road see a barn sale, turned around cause I spy a wheelhorse. I ask how much , he said 400$, but someone was suppose to be picking it up. Turns out it came with a sickle bar too. My ears kinda perked up then , cause my dad wants on for his 702. They call the other fella, he passed on it, I offered 300$, we settled at 350$. Tractor runs pretty good, lil smoke when ya goose it, but runs and cuts pretty good. I'm hoping the sickle bar will fit my dad's 702, it's a 50 inch bar. Anywho, here's some pics a serial numbers if anyone has some additional info, or point me in the right direction, would be appreciated, thanks!!!
I don't have pictures yet but I can get some later. I know that will be helpful but I forgot to take them last night.
So here's what I know.
When I bought my c-160 last year it came with a plow. It was delivered to my house and the plow was not mounted on it. I never saw this particular plow on that particular tractor.
The plow I have is 42 inches wide and has a full frame as most of them do.
The angle lever has the Z shape to it, NOT a straight stick of metal, and also bends slightly back towards the operator.
When I am pulling the angle lever towards me to change the angle of the plow it contacts the brake lever.
I have at least 7 hubs on different tractors that I would like to add a second set screw to.
I have an older but good quality floor model drill press.
I have the tap set.
I don't recall ever using the tap set to do anything other than clean out threads. Not make my own thread set.
Can anybody give any particular advice?
I have a B80 that I acquired from a PO that had the PTO rod shortened and rewelded and the spring removed from the brake pad bracket. I replaced the rod with a non welded adjustable, and reworked the muffler with a 45 so then new rod would fit in. After researching manuals and forum i can only determine that i need to have a 1/8 or less gap between the clutch plate and the bell housing. I can adjust the trunnion all the way in and it seems that some pressure is applied to disk and going all the way out a less is applied. However all pictures i have seen most everyone has the trunnion at least half way up the rod and state that you engage the pto rod with a lot of force, that is not my case at all. Is the stub with the bell housing the problem, it looks like there is plenty of disk plate left.
Hey Guys, any help with ID or info on this possibly rare bird? It appears to be the original paint but idk for sure. Alo, a B series with electric lift rather rare I think HUH?
