I have purchased my first ever tractor this summer a bolens 1886-01. I had no idea what I was getting but went with my gut feeling. I really liked using it all summer and began looking at tractors everywhere! lol

Long story short I have the possibility to trade a snowmobile for a running wheel horse gt 14 with no attachements. heres some pics

What I need to know is what am I getting ? How hard will it be to find parts for it?

Mate, melikes the way your guts lead ye! I'm no WH expert, but that looks great to me! prior to the Toro era & looks strong, Hopefully some Horsemen'll join in and clarify. BTW, there was some buzz about the snowmobiles here:

The GT 14 is every WH man's dream. That one looks nice. There are a lot of aftermarket parts and attachments still available. Having said that, some attachments like the mower deck are model specific.

Go for it! I have one now and rebuilding and think it will be great. I got a 3pt for mine. You should have hydraulic lift and only need the hitch parts and long connector link to have that if wanted. Little harder to find, prices all over the place, but never cheap. I'll be posting some more pix of mine soon. Keep eye out. If me.....would have been home in garage already, ha! :bounce:

Very nice looking GT-14.
I have a 1969 GT-14. It is not as nice looking as the 1 in your pictures, but it runs, drives, and will be my main snow pusher this winter. I just fixed up a 54" snow plow for it.
I have the 3 pt hitch with the independant lift (2nd cylinder & control valve).
Not sure what price you are looking at, but it looks like a $250-$350 machine. (My opinion only)

Yeah I kinda forgot about that thread. I eventually called the seller whom wanted 800$ for it or a model of snowmobile that I didnt have. I figured that without attachements it was worth 600$ top depending on my inspection and the actual state of the machine when I get there.

Yeah I wish  :(  but up in Quebec Canada GTs are worth more and parts are also rare and expensive. I finally waited the winter out and bought a  c120 with no spark and a working c160 with mower, dozer blade and snowblower for 750$ witch is a very good deal even if a few parts  was missing.

It looks by his follow up on April 20th that he didn't get it.

 

Now that I've got a little experience with this model I can notice some things with that (the) GT.

 

1) No heat shield between the fuel tank and the engine.

2) Grille is open, is has the wood grain decals, and two spoke steering wheel all signs of a 1969 model. I love the wood grain btw :)

3) The hydro control knobs are on backwards.

4) It recieved a recent spray bombing.

 

Not that any of this matters now...

*******************

oK--Yes--definately a 69--model number should be   1-7441, on tag under right side of hood stand--where your right knee would rest

 

1. Definately need to find or make a heat shield between  gas tank/motor--donn't run it long without--you WILL be looking for a gas tank.

 

2.  '69 model did not have a 'grill' front of gas tank---that  looks like a grill. BE  careful abhout running into things-, plse

--70 and later had a metal support there, if you can find one.

 

****That's why you need the manuals for this specific machine, as the later models used other and various/sundry parts, some of them just small stuff, untiil

mid-73 , I think, when it was discontinued in favor of the  14 Auomatic, whuich eveolved into the "D" series.

Like I said I did not get the tractor after all. But I did get 2 C series later on. And like a dumbass I flipped one for peanuts. Now my C160 needs parts and the 120 is gone  :wallbanging:

Glenn, Wheel Horse stopped production on the GT14 at the beginning of the 73 production year when they introduced the 18 Automatic, then the D-180 in 1974. The 14 Automatic became the C-140 Automatic in 1974.

 

I hope this helps .
