Brad has tipped me off to a Wheel Horse on Craigs List. It's a '74 16 Horse 8 speed. It has a RD mower, a snowblower and roto tiller. I called the guy and arranged to go get it tomorrow. Cross your fingers for me. The price? $350
I got the tractor today! Yay, I always wanted a C- 160. Yup, Teddy. It's a '74. The engine and trans work okay. The sheet metal is sad. It needs the steering tower welded and fixed up. The rear fender is a cracked and welded mess. Needs tie rod ends. Normal stuff. I'm so socially over booked until next Thurs at least. I'll take pictures when I can. I have a couple of questions.(1) I I'm not sure all the rototiller is there. Can anyone post pictures of the drive for it? I don't see anyway of it working the way it is. (2)Does any one have a flag for the snowblower to sell?
All can be found--there, actrually is a man in Penn. who does a complete remake of the clutch/pulley assembly--he lives very close to billy (another member here)...
But--anyway--good luck with your find--and keep us informed!!
Sometimes you just have to laugh..To keep from going insane!!
Sorry, I'm so slow with these! Below are the photos as promised.
The first photos are the tractor. In the second picture is the place that bothers me the most. Notice that ugly 'growth' where there are supposed to be interlocking fingers. It would just be easiest to find a new tower and box assembly.
