I thought I'd show you guys my latest find. Its a 74 C-160 that was factory equipped with a Tecumseh OH160 16hp. I prefer Kohler, but was still very happy to get this one, as this particular one is quite rare. I got it in Dallas Tx. from its original owner. An 88yr old lady who was selling it for $200 with tiller, dump cart, and lawn deck. She even gave me the original owners manual. The old Tecumseh runs fantastic with no smoke at all, and even its original paint still shines a little. What really shocked me was how nice the original seat is, as most are in ruff shape. I added an exhaust stack, as I really like the way they look, and sound. I did save the original Nelson muffler, as its in almost new condition. I also replaced the rear 23x8.50-12 turf tires with some 23x10.50 AG tires, and tri-ribs in the front. For now, I don't intend to restore it, as its a very original old horse, and I would like to keep it that way. However, I still have a lot of cleanup to do before I'm happy with it. Here are a few pics from the time I got it, up till current. Thanks
The front end on the Tecumseh equipped C-160's have they're hoods raised up higher to clear the taller over head valve engine. I showed a comparison in one of the pics.
