I love everything about the wheelhorse except for the occupant ride height. I'm going to space the seat up. While messing with it I noticed the hydro tag. I have never seen one on the many horses I've taken apart.

Does the tow valve need to be a certain way? I tried to tighten it.... It just spins.

It never tightens, just spins as you said.  BUT, it must point a certain way to drive, and I forget which way.  One of the WH guys will light the way.

I mine the long side points forward to drive; backward to tow/push.

With the longest part of the tow valve pin facing forward, you should be in the drive position.

With the long side of the pin facing backwards, this should be the tow position.


The valve will need to be rotated 180* to go from drive to tow, and visa versa.

Not Hydro.....Automatic!   Heh!   Yeah, seats not so great on many WH. I found you could buy those seat springs from some models, same as IH used and others that are a U-shaped bent spring with holes for mounting and seat mount. Sometimes you need to bore diff holes if not in right place for a couple.  If you get too high, then the steering wheel becomes a back-breaking  or knee-busting problem being too low.
