  1. Happy Birthday Chris. Hope you have a good day.
  2. Rural Past Times, August 11/12

    If Alan's going to be there, I suppose I'll have to bring the Sears/Roper.

  6. Wheel Horse 512-D

    Looks a tidy tractor. Can't help you information wise but you could try Red Square, our sister forum. Lots of Wheel Horse manuals etc on there.
  7. SD deck wanted.

    Thanks, Harry. I've got a rear discharge. I really want a side discharge.
  8. SD deck wanted.

    Thanks Nigel. I'll PM him.
  9. SD deck wanted.

    Looking for a side discharge mower deck for a C series Wheel Horse to fit my C-125. Condition of bearings blades etc not important, but deck shell must be in good condition. Bit of rust not a problem, but no rot.

  13. Wheel Horse SD Deck

    The Unibond Power Epoxy worked a treat. Deck made a lovely job of the green and verges. That's the good news. Second time I used it a crack appeared between the centre and left hand side pulleys. Actually, more of an elongated hole than a crack. A bit of plate will soon sort it. Piece of 3mm plate sourced. Paper pattern made. Transferred to plate and cut out with jigsaw. Paint cleaned off ready for welding. Plate clamp to deck top and welding commenced. That's when the trouble started. The steel of the shell started to show how badly it had rusted. Half inch of weld and a hole appeared. Try a different place. One inch of weld and a hole appeared. This happened two or three more times. So the deck was given a good inspection, (Again. The first when I got it) and several dings found where small stones had hit the deck from underneath. Gave the dings a tap?? with a hammer and lo and behold, More holes. So I've decided the deck has terminal rust worm and will be confined to the big skip at the farm. It is now all stripped down and an idea has started to materialise. If it bears fruit the saga will resume.
  14. A FEW More Newby Hall.

    I don't think it has been used in anger, Jonathan. Positioned where it is, I'd think if any heavy strain was put on it, it'd lift the front of the tractor.
  15. Wheelhorse under wraps at Newby Hall

    You'll think of something.
