Boy, you really blew that one up. I've never seen a piston come apart like that before. Atleast the block is standard bore, should be an easy fix.  I have several WH GT's and I mow with a Auto14 all the time. I would like to find an Auto16 one of these days.

 

If you have any other question, please be sure to post them.

 

Check here for any manual you might need, if it's not there someone should be able to upload it.

 

Here is a link to our manual section,

A little update on the progress,,, all tore down and sitting under the workbench

I found another serious(yet common) issue while tearing things apart,, one of the axles has a bad keyway that will need repaired.

 

Got one piece cleaned/prepped and squirted on some rustoleum rusty metal primer.

Oh ya,, while at the Home Depot I saw an HVLP gun kit 2 guns and other crap for 55 bucks on the clearance rack,, no more rattle cans

Never used this type of gun, always had the siphon type but as seen I put some primer on and it looks ok.  Long as I can get a 50/50 finish I'll be happy.

I wonder what all that scratching was on the piston top. Did something get into the cylinder?

Well Joe, it looks like you're making excellent progress. I like the paint gun, might have to look for something like that after I fix or replace my pos compressor that just broke.  It's amazing how easy a Wheel Horse is to work on and how easily they come apart isn't it? If TG had this, it wouldn't have taken two years to replace the starter. :bigrofl:  Looking forward to future posts on this.

Miss mash of brands ya I guess so,, Im not fussy,, as I said I would have liked to have found a green one but any I found locally were just way to spendy for the age/condition.  This one should work out nicely,, its got plenty of HP, weight, its hydro and has hydraulics.  Who knows I might even get rid of ALL the walkbehinds once its finished.

Still have a bit more to do this week,, Id like to let it sit a week before I put color on em.  Might be a bad thing using dark primer on a red tractor?  I have to get color yet anyways,, regal red or sunrise red??

Yes it is in real decent shape tin wise,, everything is straight, unusual for a machine this old compared to most stuff I usually see in this area,, never could understand why folks would pay good bux for something and then beat the tar out of it??  This thing had to be spendy when it was new,,, it wasnt the biggest for Wheelhorse in that year but it was #2 in the line up from the info I find.

Joe I used Rustoleum rusty metal primer on my refurbs under red and it turned out nice. If you're usung Rustoleum, I'd go with the reagal red. It looks pretty close to Wheel Horse red. I used Krylon cherry red on my last two. The color is close, and they looked ok but didn't quite have the sheen I was looking for. Paint color choices are like, well, you get the idea. :bigrofl:
