Twostep, Those kohler K series are impossible to kill. You made the right choice when deciding to keep both. They run smooth and nice, congrats on great aquisitions. I said it before and ill say it again You will love these and be amazed at the work they can pull off. Enjoy and keep us posted on these beauties.

You can change out those 4 bolt hubs to 6 bolt and do the same thing on the GT14. But not sure about clearance issue in the fenders. D series hubs will bolt right on as they are both 1 1/8" axles. I would say it's maybe a 500.00 to 700.00 depending on how well it runs and mows. Are the turfs dry cracked at all?

These 5 lug off of a 416H should fit too, correct? Do you know of any issues with this?

Based on the serial numbers the 69's engine is a 1997 model and the 72's engine was made in 1971... I've not found anything to question that the 72's is original.

Wow !   A old GT14 Wheel Horse. 

Been a long time since I even thought about one of those old work horses, really brings back memory's.

I think I still have my dads GT14 tractor sitting in the barn at one of my farms.

I remember when he bought that tractor brand new, and I have vivid memory's cutting our 3 acre yard and having to remove the mower deck so we could work the large garden we had back thin.

My dad would plow the garden in early spring and disk it to get ready for planting.

We had a plow , disc , cultivator , and a row lister for that thing.

I believe all the attachments were bently or brenkly something like that. I do remember all the attachments were all white in color except the mower deck , that was red .

This post has got me interested if that tractor is still in that barn.

I think I will go take a look see tomorrow or Saturday.

Buddy, Your attachments were Brinly brand. I hope you can get some photos of your GT14, I would like to see it. I have had several of them and still have a couple.

Those GT-14 were especially well build, really was kubota-quality before Kobuta, the GT-14 could do almost everything.  Price-wise is probably the main reason it lost out, but many of the GT's are still working.  Wheel Horse really had a great idea.

Buddy, hope to see your GT-14 and to keep track of your progress getting it running again.

Thanks for bringing this thread back up. I sure love my '69 model... It steers great, it has the larger tire diameter which is nice on my rough yard, and I really like how low you sit even though it is a big wheeled tractor. Keeps my head out of the tree limbs.

So You gonna share a few pics ? Its been long since you got this one. Heres the last pic of mine. I was getting ready to deliver it in Ontario, I should have heeded the warning when loading the tractor. On the way back I picked up a nice little 1960'sPigeon outboard boat and fell asleep at the wheel. I missed a curve and crashed head on into a big ol maple tree. totaled the caravan the trailer and the boat. Sad sad day that was.journée d'accidents (3).JPG journée d'accidents (7).JPG journée d'accidents (14).JPG

Unfortunately I haven't done much with the '72 model. I've kept it listed on CL and on here for a while simply because I don't have time to give it the attention it deserves. It actually set pretty much untouched from the time I got it until a couple of weeks ago. Then I got two calls on it with in a week. This thing is heavy and with the flat tires it had I was destroying my yard pulling it up to the garage for buyers to look at SO I tubed the three flat tires, put a temporary throttle control (the original pull & twist is missing) so now it is at least a drivable tractor!

That machine would be a real looker with a new set of sneakers, a coat of red paint and some new decals!  The machine offers in my area have been pretty slim this winter, Im guessing due to the harsh weather but Im hoping for a few of those GT14s to show up for sale in my area once the weather warms up a bit,  one would make a great stable mate for the 16 auto.

It's not gone yet!! I won't sell it for any less than what I have it listed for... it's not eating anything and as long as I keep it out of the weather it will be waiting for a restoration.

Yes it would, the tins are great, the engine sounds great, I would really like to have some ag's on the rear and some 18x6.5-8 tri-ribs (that size doesn't exist to my knowledge).

Exactly... but I would like to have 18" tri ribs. I like the taller narrower turfs that are on the GT 14 but you can't tri-ribs in that size.
