I recently bought this Wheel Horse tractor at auction. The former owner only owned it two years, and knew little about it. I would appreciate knowing what model it is, so I can find parts.
I would like to know if a belly mower was ever made for it, and most of all, I need to know the shape of the wire belt brakes that mount on the engine and stop the belt in order to shift gears.
This Wheel Horse is a 10 HP Kohler, three-speed forward, with 640-15 rear bar tread tires. It also has a hydraulic lift, and is serial #42299.
I have been told Toro now supplies Wheel Horse parts for older tractors. Other readers might enjoy knowing this. When I find out the model of the tractor, I will soon find out if Toro does have parts.
I painted the tractor with Rust-Oleum Regal Red and Rust-Oleum Almond. I used spray cans and a China bristle brush. Primer was Rust-Oleum Rusty Metal Primer. Not bad for a farm job.
I have enjoyed your magazine for some years now. I like the homespun stories on searching, recovering, and building an engine back to original condition. The articles on basic mechanics are always appreciated. The reports on the shows and meets come in last.
