Question: I'm looking at the seat and decal drawing and could use an answer! Does the the seat spring or the adjusters go under the seat? It looks like the adjusters go directly under the seat and then the springs under the adjuster. If so, where does the spacer (110932) go? The reason I ask is the seat is quit low and the back sets low making it hard for me to reach the brake/ return to neutral pedal.
Newbie here and I have a 520-H that runs, but needs some TLC and some minor things fixed and/or adjusted. It comes with a like new tiller that I believe has only been used once and has paint still on the tines. I am the 2nd owner and I have personally never used the tiller. I am selling my previous home that I rent and where it has been stored. My current home's yard just isn't big enough to use a rider and I need to find a new home for it. I want to sell them together to simplify and I need them gone in the next 2 weeks. Please reach out with any questions and I'll do my best to answer. I am definitely not as knowledgeable as most of you on this forum, but figured somebody would like to fix it up, part it out and/or needs a tiller. Please email or text.

Hello - Last year I inherited a 1992 Wheel Horse 520-H Garden Tractor and several accessories. I was able to get it started at the end of last summer and drove it around a bit but I am now looking into get something better suited for my current situation. I have absolutely no idea what the tractor and accessories are worth and would love some ballpark numbers from those in the know. I've attached photos and would love any advice as to what I should try to sell these items for. Thanks so much!
The tractor is a 528-H model - 1992
289 hours on the hour meeter
The mower is a Side Discharge Mower?
48" Snow Dozer Blade - Part No. 810746R1
I recently started experiencing "bucking" on my 1997 520-H with the Eaton 1100 series transaxle. This occurred after 500 hours of heavy use with the 60" mowing deck, with all transaxle oil changes performed per specs. In reviewing causes of "bucking", I came across this for a similar complaint in a Simplicity 4711 that used the same transaxle. ( simpletractors.com/forums/topic/7441-simplicity-4211-hydro-bucking-problem/ ). One thought was that this was due to missing or loose bolts securing the transaxle to the frame.
This turned out to be precisely the reason for the "bucking" in mine. One securing bolt replaced, all other securing bolts tightened (along with the engine bolts), and the Forward-Reverse lever/linkage adjusted and tightened, and the tractor is back to "usual".
It's just something to consider before the nightmare of a transaxle overhaul...
My 520H blow out a valve seat. Any suggestions on a new motor or should I have the seat repaired?
