Transmission fluid

I accidentally added a 1/2 quart of SAE 30 in the transmission, is it ok or do I need to drain it out?

 What model tractor....Hydro or gear drive transmission??  if it is a gear drive the 1/2 qt won't hurt anything.  They used to use 40w motor oil in them

Model 310-8, gear drive.  This tractor was given to me and I know nothing about wheelhorses!

Welcome to the forum.

Do you know your model number? Good chance we have the appropriate operator manual and more to bring you up to speed.

The model number may be on a sticker on the rear fender under the edge of the seat

Being gear drive it would take any good gear lube in the 80/90wt range but 30w won't hurt it

1985 Model here are some manuals

 

 

 

An operator manual for a 1986 should be very close.

      Newbie here. 310-8 won't start. Battery is dated 10/19. Did crank a couple times but started losing ummph. Should I replace it or attempt to charge it? Can't tell if the battery is frozen. Never knew until today that batteries could freeze and that it's dangerous to charge a frozen battery. It's been single digits with wind chill the last couple weeks here.

      Looking for a PTO for my 310.  Would like the complete assembly, but at very least I need the inner clutch plate, and outer PTO bearing.

      Soo couple of years back did a pulley change on the tranny from 6 inch to 4.5 and used a 1/2 X 79 belt to make it work and it worked fairly well but wanted to get back to a 5/8 drive belt so went to a 5/8 x 81 inch belt and added a second flat Idler pulley. I simply cannot believe how smooth and sharp it shifts and drives now!  The added flat Idler was 2 3/4" with a 5/8ths bore used and existing hole on the side shroud and just opened it up a bit. I use to slip a bit on steep hill with the 79" slips no more, the belt drives and the clutch is  LOT smoother and in the right pedal area.... Will see how it holds up cut 3/4 of an acre of grass yesterday NO issues.

      So I was out mowing the other day with my 310-8 and somehow snagged my wheel in a hole in the yard. Anyways I pretty much destroyed my ball joints. I've since replaced the tie rod with junkyard parts but I was wondering if anyone's found a heavy duty aftermarket replacement for the tie rod assembly.
       
      Like would generic adjustable go-kart tie rods do the trick?
