I found a wheel horse belt driven vacuum on craigs list for sale and went and bought it for 25.00,It is just the mounting bracket and blower housing and pulleys, no hoses or anything else. Its a model 7-2611-7 Serial 891978, I wish I knew how to post a picture on this forum so members could see what the model i'm refering to looks like,Anyway, does anyone have any idea where I could find a manual or parts break down and possible belt size to hook it up to my c-160 auto (1974).Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you zekepiks (SKIP)

I have almost the same unit......but mine is complete.
I turned down that very same blower you bought.
It was still a great deal for $25. Now I have a friend
that has the pulley unit I believe if your interested.
AND.....he lives here in Michigan like we do....lol

Great find!!! The blower housing alone is $158 on partstree.com. I just paid $200 for a complete unit, but my blower housing is pretty busted up. You should easily be able to adapt any bagger unit to your tractor, and figure out some sort of plumbing to get from the housing to the bagger. Parts are a snap to find. Genuine Wheel Horse parts aren't cheap, though. Check partstree.com or your local dealer for the specialty stuff.

Here are some pictures of the unit mounted on a 42" deck as per zekepiks request. The 48" uses a double pulley on the far right spindle, with the bottom pulley in the stack having a bigger diameter. The 42" stack has the top and bottom pulleys the same size. That is the only difference in installing it on a 42" vs. 48" deck.
Note: The belt guards have been removed only for these pictures.

????? You must have a completely different unit than I do.
Mine hangs on the tach a matic rear end and a belt is run through
a special footrest with a cutout and add-on belt guard. It is a similar
belt routing that a tiller has.

I saw a picture of his unit on the ad. It looked like mine.
So I assumed when we looked up the part number....we
were talking about a 73-74 vacuum unit like mine.

I have one of those systems as well, and it is complete except for the floor board with the cut out

I got one of these for my WH, but the plastic of the housing has seen better days. Not sure if it's from getting hit or just the sandblasting action of grit/dirt getting flung around inside of it.

I assume yours has the weight that goes on the left side of the deck to counter the weight of the blower?

Here is a pic of mine. Picked up at auction for $600.
Sold two weeks ago for $1350

Didn't see any counterweight

You stole that for $600. You still made someone a good deal at $1350. I respect that.
An older fellow, not that I'm young, came all the way from Paterson, NJ to my place on the border of PA and DE at I-95. 150 miles.

It was advertised for 1500. We haggled some the old fashioned way and agreed on 1350.

That tractor was in excellent condition. No rust, great original paint, 50th anniversary edition.

He was happy.

Wow that thing is clean! I paid $1000 for a 1994 version of that same tractor, with bagger and plow. But not nearly that clean! How many hours did she have?

Here's the counter weight..
