The first one is model number 1-0495 1974 C-120 Automatic. The 9 on the end is not used but if you subtract 5 from that 6th digit you get the model year. 9-5=4=1974. You will see 6, 7, 8 and 9 on the attachments at the time also representing 1971, 1972, 1973 and 1974.

1-0481 is a 1975 C-160 Automatic.

I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject. maybe someone else has the answer? Maybe beavers?

I think the Waterloo walking tractor is one and possibly Moto-Mower which was made in Ingersol if I remember correctly. Believe they may have been taken over by Roper.

Ok heres where U stand for now. Im kinda screwed. C120 as a burned out ignition module and the C160 is missing the mule drive....I just dont know how ill afford these 2 vital parts at once..let alone one of the 2. I am unemployed for another 3 weeks and I will be needing to fix my C160 ASAP because when work returns ill have no more time to repair anything for 2 months. I am thinking about making a mule drive for the WH C160. Has anyone ever done it and is there anyone willing to give me tips/advices/explain how to best do this?

OK I know im skipping many staps before getting to the paint but I just cant stand the yellow hood and fenders that was on me  C160. So I took the cab off the dead C120 and gave it a couple coats of rattle can red. Now, I feel better  :rocker:

Dont know how close to the border you are but if you can, have them shipped to a us postoffice right on the border and them pick them up, have the shipper attach a shipping slip with declared value for customs, and carry them back across. I have shipped a few items like this and it has worked out well.

Well, here it goes. Wheel Horse C160 is going to be sold. 2 moths ago The shop closed and I cannot seem to find employment. I was offered 1500$ by a collector but decided to sell it to a young GT lover for 800$. The young man will only take the tractor and leave me with the blade mower and blower. I coulda used that extra 700$ but prefered metting a young man who caught GT fever last year and is up to 2 Racer and 1 worker. He wants the WH  to make a worker out of it. I might even get a case 444 out of the deal and the guy says hell make a day outta the pick-up to teach me a thing or two about racing mods for Stock class and give me a hand with asome project im workin on. All in all I think Im getting a good deal. I will learn some racing basics, meet a young GT lover who knows more than me,and gain a buddy to talk tractor with Thats only 2 hours drive from home! :)
