Rough B-115

Recommended Posts

nickjet67

Hi, been a while since I been on the forum, but I needed to log on to get some help with my "new" b-115 I picked up for $25! I saw this beauty sitting on the side of the road and I just needed to have it. only issue is it doesn't have a engine and the steering was all discombobulated. Last night I got that all welded up and now I am looking for help, I need to get the Briggs motor that came on it now, I have had 0 luck with finding the right motor for it but I have found almost every part I would need to build one from scratch. They are all over ebay and craigslist (the parts) and would be expensive but nice. Any help would be greatly appreciated! (also am looking for a snow blower and a bagger for it, dont know if the bagger for it exists but would be nice to have.

Watch the classified here. There was a k321 14 hp listed that just sold.  Also @richmondred01 rebuilds motors and usually has a few on the shelf to sell.

I might have to take ya up on that, I believe the Briggs that was on the mower was a 297905 or something like that

@richmondred01 Is there any chance that you have any vertical shaft motors 8hp or more anywhere? Just curious. It would be nice to just hook up all the wiring stock but what ya gonna do lol. I have a Kohler motor that I have just sitting around (ill check the model when I get home), its off a 1977 b80, not sure the model of the motor but you can check if you want. I will send it to you if you want, last time I had it running was probably a year or longer ago. Maybe we can do a trade or something.

I’m sorry I don’t have any vertical shaft engines anymore. I just could never sell, or even give them away. I’ve scraped all of them at this point to make room.

      Hi, I am looking for a 37¨ snowthrower. I hopefully can acquire this for this harsh Michigan winter, but if I don´t, then shoveling it is...  either way this would be an GREAT tool I would greatly enjoy having. Thanks!

      Hello all, I recently acquired a "new" B-115, and with the help of @ohiofarmer, I will be fixing her up, first with a engine he is trading me for my old Kohler engine off my '77 B-80 that I trashed when I was 13. I haven't been in the Wheel horse game long, as I am 16 now, I hopefully will be able to keep this project updated on here, especially in the spring when I will be completely repainting it! I am super excited for this project, and am ready for all the challenges that lay ahead with it. if you have any helpful information you are willing to share about my newly acquired project, please share! I haven't had tons of luck finding tons of information about it.

      Hello fellow wheelers, I need a vertical shaft motor for my b-115 before winter hits hard in michigan (about 2 weeks). I am open to trades, cash, partial trades, and really most things. I have a few engines, tools, and old truck parts I can trade, and about $50 ($80 in 2 weeks) that i am able to spend (right now will have more soon) anyways, thanks for anything y'all can do!

      Hi, I am looking for any and all parts for a B-115. I am still pretty new to the wheel horse game, though I am willing to learn a lot. I need some help finding a Briggs 191707 8hp motor, vertical shaft. I prefer to have this motor so I can hook up my stock wiring harness and be good, but I am also fine with taking in another motor that is equal or greater power. I am also looking for snow removal attachments as well, mainly a b-series snowblower/plow. Any help that can be given would be great! Again fairly new to this (had 1 wheel horse before and I messed it up bad) so I need some extra help with these things.
