I'd had that thought too.

If not I'll do a GM 4 pin module conversion.

Nope....

No worries.

That's what @jabelman was talking about.

 

There's a way around it...

Agreed.

But it uses a Ford abs sensor too.

:lol:

Nah....

 

They can be replaced with a hall sensor, GM module, and a coil.

Nice looking new machine! I knew you could get a Tecky on a C-160, but that's the first one I've ever seen. My dad picked up an OH-160 the other day for nothing, not knowing what it was because of it being OHV and the markings gone off of the shroud.. He almost took it back but I made him keep it.. Figured it would make something of mine move if nothing else.

 

If it has ignition issues you can always do a Kohler conversion :hide: :lol:

What’s Trina’s estimate on her completion of the rebuild?

Pretty nice C-160.Never knew a few were built with an OHV Tecumseh.I've never seen one.Til now anyway.It's really something how little furry critters can make an engine appear seized.Like one of the old cartoon caracters used to say...….I hate those meeses  to pieces.Have fun with your new toy.

We did actually talk about that...

 

So here's the current plan:

Even though the Military Display show at Owls Head was cancelled Trina still wants to build herself a Military Tribute Tractor using the 856 gifted to her by @Herder Adam.

 

I want the Charger Hydro done ASAP so can get some run time on it use it for winter.

Then Colossus so it'll be ready for spring '21 forestry season.

 

Then... This ole girl is next in line.

 

Not to mention Trina's house painting project.

And all the other 74 million things she does.

 

 

So it'll be a bit.

:techie-hourglass:

So       :confusion-confused:      While Trina is doing all this work            :tools-hammerdrill:       Will you be able to keep up with the photos and commentary?          :wwp:

      Hello, 
       
      I am hoping someone can help my. I recently acquired a c160 for the engine for another tractor. So I did a motor swap and wanted to see what the hydro was like. I put a plow on it C-160 (which now has a 12hp engine on it). I did a quick test run and everything was good. I drained the fluid and change the filter (Napa 1410 filter and sae 30 transmission fluid as it stated to only use this fluid on the tractor.) everything was working great after the fluid change. I plowed two driveways and the sidewalks near my house... all the sudden the tractor would not go forwards or in reverse. I tried to pick the plow up and nothing... I checked my drive belt it was turning like it should. I started to push the tractor and the rear was engaged so it would not move. Of course I was 400’ from my driveway and the plow was down which made it fun. I put the tractor in forward and started to push it and the thing took off. So I hopped on and took it to the front of the garage. I put it in revers and it cut out again so I pushed it in the garage. Today I went out to check the tow valve. I took it out and cleaned the threads up put it back in and it did not change anything. According to the dipstick I have the proper amount of fluid in it. I did have a drip that I fixed on the cylinder still nothing... does anyone out there have any tips to help me out? I’ve never had a transmission like this only manual transmissions. The model of this transmission is the sundstrand 90-1140.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I have a 1976 C-120, 8 speed, that has had a bad rear axle key way for about 35 years.The plastic steel we put in to keep things together finally gave up the ghost last year. I tried some welding but that hasn't held up either. My question is will the rear axles from a C-81 8 speed fit in my transmission? According to the parts lists I found on this site, both trans have 1 1/8" axles and 8 pinion diffs, but the axle part numbers are different.  Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm brand new to the site and think its great!

      I don't have pictures yet but I can get some later. I know that will be helpful but I forgot to take them last night.
       
      So here's what I know.
      When I bought my c-160 last year it came with a plow. It was delivered to my house and the plow was not mounted on it. I never saw this particular plow on that particular tractor.
      The plow I have is 42 inches wide and has a full frame as most of them do.
      The angle lever has the Z shape to it, NOT a straight stick of metal, and also bends slightly back towards the operator.
       
      When I am pulling the angle lever towards me to change the angle of the plow it contacts the brake lever.
       
      Any thoughts?

      We're going to take apart the Tecumseh from my Honey's 657 so I can replace the crankshaft.
      Any little tricks or tips I need to know about?
