We work pretty close to a salvage yard so everybody that works there brings there scrap metal along and drops it off there.
A friend brought his today and under the pickup bed there was a tractor. After closer inspection it was a "10 Automatic" Wheel Horse. Steering wheel and hood bent - can be repaired.
Offered the gentleman $50 and offered to help get it out from under the P/U bed. :confuse::confuse::confuse:
A deal.
He told me had just cut lawn with it a couple of weeks ago. WOW THIS THING RUNS!:dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:
Mower deck and six Wheel weights with.:bounce::bounce::bounce:

What a shame to send this kind of stuff the shredder. Sometimes wonder how many GTs wind up there unnoticed by someone who cares.:mecry:

Pics to come of coarse.

Nice find Ducky!! Just the rear wheel weights alone go for around $100.00 a set if they are the cast iron ones. And you got a running tractor besides! Way to save another one from the scrap pile.

WOW! You pay less than 1/2 price for the wheel weights & get the running/driving tractor tossed in for free! What am I doing wrong????????:wallbanging:
Glad you saved it from the scrapper. I'd rather be envious than to see stuff melted down. Once they're gone.....they're GONE!

So those are wheel Horse weights?
I thought they were just some chunks of cast they round up for weights.

I can't say for sure if WH weights, but nice weights no matter. I've owned a few WH tractors, but never had WH weights to know. If the chunky things bother you, slip them into large priority flat rate boxes & ship them down to me! LOL

That's a good catch are you sure that's the right Model # "Toro Master PartsViewer" has got every thing they made in there I believe.

Added
I think it's a "1-0470" shows a 1973 10hp Automatic Tractor with electric clutch, your has a spot on the dash for it, could of been converted to manual setup at some point.
GoTo "Toro Master PartsViewer" punch in 1-0470 and look at the pictorial drawings see if it's the same.

Between 1971 and 1974 Wheel Horse added the 6th digit to the 5-digit model numbers of both the tractors and the attachments but it is not used. If you subtract 5 from the number you get the model year so 8-5=1973. You will see 6's, 7's, 8's and 9's.
