  4. Wheel Horse RJ-58 Restoration

    thanks Norm! Haha, when you look closely the hubs and some other bits aren't even primed, and theres quite a few other bits that still need cleaning and painting Thanks Alan!
  5. I've finally got around to creating a thread for the restoration of my RJ I have been working on. Many thanks to Chris for sourcing the engine, we're working on getting it going, also thanks to Ian for helping me out with the measurements of the front axle and lastly thanks to Chris (showman) for letting me take measurements from his RJ at Newby hall! Heres some photos of the RJ before I started
  6. Wheel Horse RJ-58 Restoration

    I was home from uni this weekend so I finished some last minute jobs ready for its first outing next month. I applied the rest of the decals and made a temporary belt guard out of some mesh, ill make a proper one when I have some more time. Had the tractor running for about an hour with no problems so hopefully we wont have any problems at Newby Hall.

  9. Cutter deck help

    Hi, we have sold decals to the person selling that deck and he had contacted me asking if i knew what model tractor it fit, he didn't know and i couldn't find any similar ones doing a google search. Of course he may have found out so worth an ask
  10. WANTED 4HP CLINTON ENGINE

    I don’t know if this link will work but there is someone with one on a tractor Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/396946423685661/permalink/1746366375410319/
  11. Clinton Engine help

    Thanks for the offer but we’ve managed to straighten it out and braced it, and I’m getting a spare Engine shortly that I can use if I need to.
  12. Clinton Engine help

    I have an issue with the pull start on the Clinton engine on my RJ, I think its stemming from the fact that the flywheel backing plate is bent and cracked which means the cowl doesn't bolt on how it should, this means that the pull start won't disengage from the flywheel properly and when we start it it catches. Does anyone think the plate can be straightened or does anyone have any spares? Its a Clinton B1290/B1260, thanks

  14. Baaaaaa

  15. Wheel Horse RJ-58 Restoration

    So apart from a few parts still to make and bits still to finish painting the RJ looks about finished. We've had the RJ running for about an hour solid today and we haven't had any issues which is good. Here are some photos.
  16. Happy Birthday Ian

    Happy Birthday Ian!
  17. Kohler Recoil help please

    Great, my RJ58 will be in the horticultural section, see you then! Thanks again
  18. Kohler Recoil help please

    Hi all, I have this kohler recoil for an engine I have but the spring is snapped and there may be some other parts missing. Has anyone ever rebuilt one? Or does anyone have one they would sell? Thanks
  19. Kohler Recoil help please

    We will definitely be at Newby Hall, that would be awesome as I think I have too many parts missing. Let me know what you want for it, thanks
  20. Fun in the snow

    Great job on the plowing Joseph! The igloo is pretty awesome as well I made one myself (well more of an 'eggloo' but cheated since the back was built in a 2 foot snow drift
  21. Wheel Horse RJ-58 Restoration

    Thanks Chris, the RJ might be up and running by the weekend
  22. Kohler Recoil help please

    Thanks for that Richard, it appears I am missing quite a few important things, I need to have a another look but I don't have the pawls, the return spring/ spring retainer or the pulley and sheave but I do have a cast part that doesn't look like a part from that diagram. I will have a look later and post a picture.
  23. Kohler Recoil help please

    Heres the plate on the engine, Its a Kohler K141 6hp, Serial Number 1014, Spec Number 29287C. Its interesting to see that the plate says Kohler of Canada, I never noticed before, other kohlers we have say kohler of kohler. Does anyone know if this is an early engine?
  24. Wheel Horse RJ-58 Restoration

    Thanks Richard, the original one was only ever going to be a template but once i'd made it I couldn't be bothered to remake it out of thicker steel. One of the holes was too small so it forced me to remake it but i'm glad I did I always try to save the paint if I can however it will inevitably get chipped at some point
  25. Wheel Horse RJ-58 Restoration
