By Horse's ass
I can't seem to locate the oil plug on the transmission/hydro of the C161 auto. Can someone please show me where the heck it is!?!? I would think it was right on the bottom somewhere near the filter but I do not see or feel anything that looks like a oil drain.....
Thanks for your help,
Well it was a nice day. And the sun shining through the snow. Makes for a nicer video and whole lot more fun than blowin through a blizzard! I hope you'll agree. Video of clearing out snow after the storm with my Wheel Horse C-161 manual 8 speed with Snow Thrower Attachment

Hey guys. I'm looking at buying a c-161 (pictured below) and am of course just learning about Wheel Horses. I have another guy selling the pictured C-105 (I think that's what it is) and he would let it go for $100. It runs but leaks oil from a seal in the tranny.
My question is - Do these two machines share same parts? Are they of the same era? If the motor in the C-161 doesn't work would the motor from the C-105 work in it?
Your help would be much appreciated and depended on!
Additionally, the other option is the C-81. Would you settle rather for that.?
C-161 $250 (not running right now)
C-81 with plow, wheel weights and chains $500 (not running right now)
I'm hitting the road today! My son's birthday present wheel horse is due in 2 days.!
Does anyone know the reasoning behind the black hoods like my C-161 shown below? I like it because it was my dad's and looks a bit sinister but from the hood to the headlight bezel to the twin Briggs, I just wonder why they built it. It's been a great machine. Dad bought it when it was a couple years old from a neighbor and it has had nothing done to it but regular maintenance, a little touch up to the paint, and a fresh set of decals. Even the tires are still in good shape with only a few cracks.
