Top job you've done there! It'll certainly last a lifetime :thumbs:

 

Thanks Gents, Felt on occasions that I had to push 'n' motivate myself to finish this job, but now it's done, I glad I persevered with it. 

 

Nice day, so I dragged the C-120 out onto the hardstanding and fitted the deck on. Went on ok and I had scrubbed up the old OEM WH Drive Belt that came with the Tractor.

Surprising that it only had 2 small cracks in the narrow side of the 'V' considering it was wrapped around the front Axle for about 20 years outside!!!-

Anyway, with it all belted up and reasonably tensioned, I Spun it up on Half engine speed to test the Governor and she turned nice and smooth when the PTO was engaged.

No nasty noises, but a little belt wobble between  PTO n Mule Drive, but then I hadn't tensioned it up to spec-

During the next week I'll cut some grass to test it, when it has grown long enough.

So I consider this 'Job Done'.........and there's another job waiting to be started on this machine and on the other one.

WOW! I am so amazed at all the work and sweat you put into it! I am keeping my 3 tractors and decks going w/ lots of bubble gum and spit here in Ohio! I could use a good diagram for the older spindles w/keys to make sure mine are correct (I think they are not) if anyone has a link or pic. Again, WOW!

Hello:USA::WMOM: and thanks for the compliments. Would just need to know which Deck versions you are running?.  If they are the same size with similar Spindle types like mine, I can send you a message with all the files/images and links you need.

Regards.

Wonderful! I have a 48" on a '73 16 Automatic (my Dad's original), a 48" on a '77 C160 Automatic (Dad's 3rd) and a 52" on a '99 518XI (my first!). Love them all! The '73 is awaiting a complete go over since it has been at my brothers sitting for about 10yrs or so but still looks very good! I just got an older 60" deck from a 90 or so 520 so I am doing a remount of the deck attachment from my 52" to it. Need to use it at my new place that has 3 acres. The 52" is awaiting rust repair and spindle repair so since the 60" is in such great shape I need to do the switch. I'm learning to weld now, haha!

Hi, Assuming the Decks are same age as the Tractors, or close, 

73 16 Auto- Model # 1-0440. Deck 48in SD Model # 5-1210.

77 c-160 Auto Model # 71-16KS01. Deck 48"SD Model # 75-48MS01.

The 60" Deck from a 90 or so 520  should have a model # like  C5-60SC01 (1989). C5-60SC02 or 3 (1991),  C5-60SC03 (1992) or 78390 (1993). you can check if they're all the same. 

 

The 99 518Xi (# 73471)   2 types of 52" Deck 78370 is a Side Discharge (but can be equipped with a  Recycle Kit # 79185).

The other is 52" Recycler Mower Deck # 78375.

If you're  not aware, all the these Model Numbers in Bold can be entered into Toro's Model Search Link HERE to obtain full Illustrated Parts Lists (if they have it).

You will most likely find that many parts were standard/interchangeable on the earlier 48" Decks.

I'll forward you some PDF Files and other links you will find helpful..

Regards.

Wasn't a rear discharge deck offered on these tractors as well? I thought Wheel Horse had separate manuals for rear discharge, is that right?

Hi Alain,   Yes, they were, but I hadn't mentioned them here because they only made Rear Discharge Deck up to 42", so I knew HORSEGIRL's Decks were Side Discharge.

WH (and possibly Toro later) Deck Manuals (printed) were tended to be generic and covered variants of size and ejection point, i.e. 36" RD, 36"SD, 42"RD and 42"SD were all in one Manual on the earlier ones. I am not sure about the 80-90s models.

Most Online PDF Files available for download have been modified and so information referring to a specific Model Deck number can be downloaded without the dross of other Models as well.  At least , this is what I have observed.  Regards.

Hi! Sorry, been offline for a bit. You are correct that all my decks are SD. I will be checking out the links and downloading this evening. Thank you so very much for all the information and assistance! I will post some pics soon!
