Purchased a Work Horse GT-1100 Today

Recommended Posts

I am very new to finding old tractors so I am not 100% sure if I got a deal or not. Today at an estate sale I was able to pick up a Work Horse GT-1100 for $65. It needs a lot of clean up, and as of right now I am not 100% sure of the working condition. It did come with the snow thrower attachment, and even though it isn't pictured, I also got the mowing deck as well. Not sure what these are worth, but any info would be much appreciated! I have attached some photo in its current condition.  Thanks!

Great Deal.  The chains and weights are worth 65 to the right person.  If you can't get it to work, you should be able to part it out and more than recover your money.

You got a good deal! If you're the slightest bit handy with engines mechanical things, or a just a good learner, you'll find your new Horse to be remarkably simple and straightforward to work on. Only thing to watch out for is that, like all 90s-era garden and lawn tractors, there's the extra safety switches and their wiring. A good scrubbing ought to help get the crud off so you can find the gem underneath.:thumbs:

      I’ve recently gotten into flux core welding and I’ve been making all sorts of attachments for my 310-8. I was wondering what other crazy things people have made for their tractors.

      Trying to restore a 1971 Wheel horse Workhorse 800 model 0100, It has a tecumseh HH80-110112D. 
      I cannot find any parts at all for this one, I’ve checked everywhere I can think online. This is my first restore, looking for some help to find parts or what I can use (swap) to keep it close to original but also functional. 

      Also the fly wheel has two **** that stick up off it that the coil passes and one is broke off. Is that a problem, I’m a mechanic but this thing is old and with no info it’s a guessing game. 

      Parts needed so far:
       right side running bored/footrest
      Left side engine cover
      right side pulley cover
      Ignition coil
      Main drive pulley bearings 
      Hitch pin (goes through trans case)

      just wondering if anyone knows which way the governer is supposed to turn when setting it. its a 1984 gt 1100 workhorse/ wheel horse? it has a horizontal 11 horse b&s 399cc.I'd rather not have to drain the oil again and open the engine up. just trying to get it running smooth and then maybe restore it. its in good shape. i may have put in more work than needed. its ran before not very long and i recently tried firing it up and was screamin at 5000rpm i would assume.
