Well the only thing that has shown up so far was the engine parts, sooooo I put the engine back together,, after I took out the balance gears of course

I found nothing inside to indicate why the piston blew apart.  Only two things I saw that were suspicious were several blocked fins and a new set of points,,,,could the blocked air fins and possibly not having the point timing correct have caused the blown piston?  Oh well were gonna see if it blows apart again.

You will have to pardon my ignorance but, I hadnt seen a C 16 before. I own a C160 and is the exact replica of yours exept for the tag and the engine. My engine is  a kohler with a mecanical pto clutch and your seems to have a Tecumseh with electrical pto clutch. Am i right? I looked at tractor data.com and couldnt fint a 16hp before 1974 and no C16 model at all! I would love to hear more about your specific model. If its anything like mine( wich im sure it is) it will be an awesome Gt. I really love my little horse and it serves me well.

This one is a 1973 16 Automatic,, the engine is the Kohler K341 16HP,,(sorry Techy dudes I wouldnt waste my time on a Tejunkski, Id put a Chonda on it first), pretty much the same as a C160 from what I gather, except for the PTO being electric, and the hydro control.

Sorry about that. I do see that you have the Kohler engine in your first pics. I kinda missed it the first time. I dont want to insult anyone but Kohler K series are a hard to beat thing. I did own a c120 that had a tecumseh init...well as I said i did own, but wont own one anymore  :rolling:

I have had a Gravely walkbehind for probably 8 yrs it has a Kohler K301 12 HP its been a good engine, always starts, always runs smooth runner with good power, I cant wait to start running this big one.  To be fair, dad had a few Techys over the years and though none of em ever blew up you could always count on persistent carb issues with them,,, I have a 10HP Techy on a genny and it has been pretty decent only had one issue with it, had to tear it down remove the exhaust valve and shorten the stem so it would start.

There were a couple-three years there when WH quit calling their tractors Rangers,Chargers,et al. and just used the HP number, before they started calling them B, C, etc.

I hear ye. On my side its been nothing but troubble. Most Tecumseh Ive come across had ignition problem or carb problem. The fact that most of them were of the HH serie makes it quite hard and expensive to fix when something is wrong. 

My own opinion  :D

It looks as if they are calling the 73 models by their HP,, IE 10HP, 12HP,14HP, 16HP they are pretty much all at the top of the list,,, Im no WH historian but I think 73 was the first year for the 16 it only came as a hydro,, in 74 it became the C-160.

Well the tires showed up late this afternoon, I ran into town this evening and got a pair of valve stems and tubes mounted em on the rims and I just had to get them on to see how they looked.
