I bought it back for $30.00 less. He put a new solenoid  and starter on it. The solenoid just needed to be cleaned up. The starter that was on it was new. Now I have 2 new starters. The original  starter also worked fine from the original owner. I'm going to put the original  starter back on and add a hour meter. :banana-linedance:

I haven't  bought any Garden Tractors  in more than 3 1/2 years. I still Love the Wheel Horse's.  I was running out of room.

I'm pretty happy about the fact that the "War Dept" here now has two of her own in the herd...

No problem honey. Here's your new push mower and snow shovel. It's so wonderful you decided to take on these chores.  I'm going for a long ride with my extra time. Luv you!

I have one WH LSE. #143. 398 hours. I'm not looking to downsize anymore.  I just wanna keep what I have. When I bought the LSE, I also picked up a 1995 520H with 92 hours. I just cleaned the carburetor  a couple of weeks ago!   They both run excellent.  I felt guilty about using both tractors. So I put

 them on a shelf for now.

Hey Jim!  Sounds like the local ‘608 needs some organized plowing visits!  How bout you wrangle up a team a’ horses and make a hit on his field!  I’m sure you’ve got some tractor mafia connections to make that happen, eh?

      Hi guys, I purchased my firs WH - a 1976 C-120 Automatic. I have a steep hill on my property and before I go down the hill, I want to understand how my braking system works. I’m aware that this year/model didn’t include disc brakes, so is the breaking purely hydraulic Via transmission and controlled by the speed lever? Has anyone encountered issues with this? Is it safe to use on a steep hill? Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Sadly Dan @Achto informed me the the other day of a 857 and a C-120 that was deposited at his local county dump. Dump rules are  such that once it hits the ground it stays due to junkyard dogs going to fisticuffs over scrap steel. Understandable  Despite some hastily made plans of bribery,  chicanery and/or hook or crook to rescue them we failed miserably. We may get drummed out of the Mafia for that one.
      I'll let Dan fill you in on the details if he has the stomach.  I would like to believe that that our beloved  ones would be smelted down to produce more tractors but then I wake up from that dream. Sorry no bone yard pics not that we would want to see them.
      Dan asked me if he had a problem over grieving over these lost gems. You decide... So in memoriam I feel it is quite nescessary to post pics of our lost loved ones. Since I don't have a C-120 here's what I have of a 857.  Please post your pics of either models. True story, I wouldn't hose you guys and not just fishin  for

      One seat spring is about 1/4" lower than the other one. Has anyone had this problem. If so, what'd you do to fix it?

      Homer is a typical Southern man. When a tool breaks, he moves it to his backyard to be repaired another time. Turns out I'm the repair guy and have been attempting to barter for an old C-120 and a Commando 7 buried in the yard. He surprised me with the C-125 black hood a while ago after numerous mower, chain saw, weed wacker and whatever repairs. The horses are all out of a shop in Joplin now gone after the big blow... Soooo, 1 repaired old Sears LT and another that I took apart just so he could see after running without oil that the cam was in 4 pieces and the rod in 5 and he said I could have the 120. We pulled it out of the dirt with 4 flats, destroying several ant mounds in the process. Truly, not bad condition thanks to Homer's attention to the use of tarps. He tells me the 301 was bored .030 over and his mind is sharp for a 92 year old so I'm inclined to believe him. May be able to save that Commando in the near future if I repair that old Bolens GT14 first - and so on. So, my collection is now at a lowly 2. I don't think I'll restore this - will just make her a reliable runner and make the wife happy The deck can use a little metal but seems salvageable. Another C saved!

      Just got a 1974? C-120 with a apparent Tecumseh replacement engine 12 hp. Wiring harness was changed, but works. I' am pretty sure it was a Kohler. My problem is it turns over through 3 compression strokes and stops starter. continuously. Bought new starter same problem. IT did start and run great, good idle and rpm range. Shut off and will not start same turn over problem. I placed my hand over carb and turns over as it should with no stopping .Lots of fuel on hand as expected. Any ideas! Do I need to include more information?  Model 10495 9  ser.# 46429  Thanks
