Wish I could. The previous owner had it repainted and re-stickered at a dealer back in the late 90s. All I can say is it's a pewter color with a subtle metallic look. Not the factory paint. 

Thanks for the reply. It a nice color on that tractor. I repainted my Work Horse factory color but I really like that color.

I think it looks nice. They did a decent job. Some of it is almost a hammertone. Some looks flaky metallic. I have no idea what it really was. I just need to see about painting the wheels and getting some matching tires on. The front wheels are off a Sears and the rears are both wide pattern rims but the tires are very different, and it sits lopsided. 
That tractor was actually on a trailer headed for scrap. I went to the house to buy a mower deck and came home with the whole machine.

That is a cute little setup.

 

I did not know they made a Work Horse that small.

 

Wagon looks good, just need to polish up the tires a bit and it will look perfect.

Found this little wagon in pieces at the curb. Got some brackets and put it all back together. Put a little riser on the end of the handle and mounted it up behind the little Work Horse. Not very big ... might hold a small cooler. The paint on my Work Horse has more of a gold tone then grey. I dont know if they are all like that

I picked up a donor 520-H ('90) last Sunday and swapped the Onan and forward swept steering into my 520-H ('89). Original motor burned a lot of oil. Donor engine runs great. There are slight variations in the the 2 installations so I had to swap the engine harness and oil pressure switch over as well. The deal was cheaper than repowering with something new like a Predator (and I wanted to keep an Onan in it) and it came with a plow, cultivators, and 60" deck.

Thanks guys. Few days ago my neighbor has a guy who mows their yard. That guy saw this little Work Horse and wanted to know if I was going to sell it. I told him I wasnt sure. Well he asked again. He isnt a Wheel Horse guy he just wants it to pass through gates and mow small yards with it. I cant come up with a value for it. Runs as good as it looks. I could use the money because of my cancer treatments I havent worked since Feb. that being said I am not desperate for cash and do not want to give it away. Whats the value of these rear engine riders?

Yup, I found one that's the same style, same pinout for 12V positive or negative ground. Now charging at about 12.65V, battery static is 12.4. Seems a bit low, but it keeps up with the lights on, so I'm not worried right now.

 

I might re-wind the starter over the winter.

That's low by modern alternator standards but acceptable for a S/G.

I do not believe 12.65 is correct for an S/G. Should be puting out 13.5-14 volts at full throttle. A good battery should be 12.6 just sitting.

 

With engine running ground the F terminal on the genny and see what voltage you get.  If it is still the 12.65 then your field coil is suspect.  if it jumps up to 13.5 or more your new regulator is at fault.

Welded up the rim for the dual on the 1054. Need to get longer bolts for mounting it. Then get the tire mounted.

:text-goodpost: Plow Day is coming up soon...between you, Kevin, and Jim posting your prep work makes me even more excited about turning earth. Do you got your lights working on that thing for night plowing?
