I found this today.wheelhorserf_zpsd5921952.jpeg

What is missing in the last pic? What year might this little jewel be? Can anyone tell me about what it would weigh? The engine is not stuck. I'm thinking about bringing it home tomorrow. The price will be $30 per 100 pounds. Thanks.

That would likely be a 70's model. I can see the model / serial number tag in the second pic. the numbers off of that would tell exactly what you have found. It would probably weigh about 500 to 600 pounds. The PTO pulley and friction disc assembly is what's missing in the last pic.

First, the missing part is the pto clutch, not too hard to find. The parts still on there, the disk and little half circle clips are hardest to find items when you buy one. It has the  pulley's on it and the surface for the disc all in one. Then there is the rods and links needed to use it, which go back to a lever on the right of dash tower.Take that back, the rod and link is there, just the up/down rod that runs clutch is gone. I've not heard of an 8 model?? there is B-80's and B-800's all pretty much same tractor. This one is only four speed, so must be early one. Others may have the dual range 8spd. Many times the 4spd will slip out of high gear (really just 3 with reverse) when under load. Make sure it shifts. These are neat and easy to work on tractors. BUT, I'm thinking .30 /lb can add up real quick, not be worth it. I have bought similar for $50 to $125 and needing tear down and work like this will. Don't know weights right off. If engine is all stuck will be most expensive build part and might wanna pass. Lots of wheelhorse around, not that hard to find and usually cheap.

After posting this , I did a little searching and found that it is probably a B80. I thought these were more valuable than they evidently are. If it weighs 500+ pounds I"ll have to pass , I suppose. I still would like to hear from anyone with comments though. Thanks.

This would be a 1973 "No-Name" Wheel Horse.

Model # would be: 1-0370.....8 hp Kohler 8 speed.

The B-80 1st year was 1974 (1-0140)

I like it, but would offer say $75 outright and see if he sells. Rest of tractor looks complete. I have an 800 going to swapmeet for parts, in Portland on May 15 to 18. It has the bad third gear in it. Just 4spd, no engine. I used engine for my B80. Have a 12hp Electro in parts to sell also, and another 12 with an engine that should run, think it is a C-100. Will have a Case 220 needs rebuilding, not sure on engine condition. Lots of neat stuff.

When you decide what to do, I have the pto for you for the shipping. ...other stuff, too. But yeah, that's a lot for scrap metal. $30 a hundred???

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the price is not negotiable. I buy stuff at this scrapper often. I tried finding out what this thing weighs on other sites , but found nothing. I thought that anybody who pulled with one in competition would have been across some scales. Maybe not, I know nothing about pulling , I guess. Oh well, some of them have to go to the crusher .

The b80 model isn't a bad model. It was wheel horses economy version of their famed C model line up. They had the 4 speed and the 8 speed rearend. I have a b82 3 speed with with a 8hp briggs vertical shaft motor.
