We had a 12 HP Briggs (it looked a lot like yours, though it was painted black) on the first lawn tractor I got my mechanical start on. It was a TSC Huskee.

 

Do you still plan on changing the exhaust system?

Thats cool.
Not sure, i dont think my parents would be to happy if i made it louder, maybe just make it a little quieter and cooler looking. But for now its good, just a little rusty.

Anyone know if this need to be replaced immediately? I just noticed it while i was cleaning my WH off and i noticed the belt is cracked? Here is a photo ImageUploadedByTapatalk1400515684.253381.jpg

Also i was wondering if i could put a 2" receiver on the rear of my WH, ImageUploadedByTapatalk1400515768.003378.jpg i would probably bolt it or get my friend david to weld it on, just wondering if anyone has done something like this before...

So anyone know if that belt needs to he replaced? Im guess they break after time, not sure how long though. I was looking at the diagrams from jacks small engines web site and i found the part number for the belt. Is there a benefit of the "true blue" belt? Not sure if its better quality or just another color.
Here is a link to the item on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/400424765979

Also i was thinking since the deck is rusted out and the bearings are shot, maybe i could get it working for the winter to remove a few inches of snow out of the driveway. Any thoughts?

I think I would replace the belt. It might go for a while, but it might break right when you don't need it to.

 

Do you have a blade (snow/dirt blade) for your wheel horse?

Ok, thanks. I dont have a snow/dirt blade for it, id like to get one for the winter. I was just thinking the mower deck might move some snow to...
How much do the snow blades go for?

I'm not sure how much one for your Wheel Horse would cost. I know a new one that would fit your Troy-Bilt lawn tractor, would cost $300-350. And, you would probably need some weights (wheel weights, or other sources of weight) and tire chains, to get good traction. I think if you tried to use your mower deck to push snow, you would probably have snow get jammed up underneath the tractor.

I did try the blades out in the snow with my troy bilt and it worked ok, it just kinda blew the snow out the side discharge. My friend was selling a tow behind plow, he might still have it. Here is a pic ImageUploadedByTapatalk1400596526.469815.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1400596533.785268.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1400596541.118818.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1400596547.351943.jpg
Im wondering how this would work... Im sure it would work great for leveling ground that has been loosened or something. Not sure about in the snow. He was asking $200...
Im also going to a tractor show this weekend in riverhead on long island ny, maybe i can find a plow there that i can modify to make it work or something.
