Ive had tons of wheel horses ranging from RJs to D series. Took this in on trade. Guy said the pic up coil was bad. Hopefully hes right. I suppose this will be the next project after the allis.

It appears from the side shot that it has the swept forward front axle. If it does, you can run the 60" mower deck. Those are very nice Heavy Duty tractors, always wanted one, just was never in the right place at the right time. Good Luck..

Finally got her home. Looks to be in about the shape I thought. It does have the front sweep axle. No hitch and is missing the cover that goes between your legs. Hopefully i can get it all back together. The ol WH horse will have to wait until I get the allis done. Here are a few pictures. If you see anything overly wrong let me know.

David, sure it needs some work, but should make a good GT when finished. Just hope the engine is good as he said. I lean toward believing him, being he pulled the flywheel to get at the pickup.

Decided to work on the WH while paint was drying on the allis. I figure i need to get to most of the wireing harness to repair past work. Towing her into the shop.

So far bolts are coming loose with no issues. I did notice the seat pan bracket is bent.

look at that the fan is intact,

Already finding random parts - a washer of some sort. Looks like the rear lift tube is already there.

Im pretty sure this isnt supposed to be welded here.

back end almost torn down

Thats as far as i got. I did pick up some WH touch up paint while I was at the local (old) WH dealer today.

Those 520's are some beasty machines! Looks like it'll need some cleaning and some TLC, but solid otherwise. Nice score!

possible bad pick up coil. Ive ordered on, hopefully the right one as the oem one was missing. Does the yellow wire go to the positive terminal of the coil? Is this even the right coil? the tractor came to me in pieces. Where do the wires hook up that come from the pick up coil? also, do the safety switches kill the coil circut or the starter?

David, download the P220 manual, as I know it covers this style ignition. Likely your engine is a P220 anyway.
