It happens very quickly, blink of an eye and she's a young adult flying away from home. Missy is now 15, last of the four girls, has a new boyfriend :wallbanging: time to meet and greet him :tapping_fingers:

My 1200 series Clinton (runs great) came from a WH that was repainted hunter green with all the right decals in the right places, older restro, very nice job, was used at a cemetery for many, many years as a mower, the owner must not of liked red, did so good a job we double checked to make sure WH did not paint any of the tractors green.

 

I hated to separate the original engine from the WH seeing as so few with the Clinton engine were made but it was going to be chucked in favor of a Kohler K-90 so i rescued it to my collection of engines.

Yes, it will be fine on your RJ. The lift detent arc is from a Suburban. I can't tell if that's a 1961 frame or if the arc was added to an RJ frame. In my opinion it doesn't take away from a great little tractor. Those shields are hard to find too.

    The frame is really just two pieces of angle iron.  I am going to try and make the box later this week, thank's for the input.

     Got my new motor in the other day, had it running good and got it on the tractor, had pics but my memory card quit so I lost them.  Does anyone on here have a wheel horse like this??????  I need a little advise on the throttle cable hook up, I cannot see a good way to do this.  I have the cable hooked rite to the carb now but that bypasses the governor!!  I am going to pick up the carb kit and new throttle cable tonite and should have it running.

   GRRRRRRRRR  this &^$%&^%^(&*&%&$^$%#$#$%*&)(*&*  Kohler engine is driving me nuts,  I had it running great before it went on the machine now I cant get it to run, rebuilt the carb cleaned the tank, then I took it out and hooked it up the old tank still nothing.  I think it may be the plug now, Has spark, gets fuel, everything I need but still wont run :mad2: :mad2: :mad2:  Getting an new plug tomorrow and hope for the best.

Check the valves, the intake might be worn and not seating tightly.

   It has good comp and I had it running good before I put it on the tractor, When I put it on the tractor I never cleaned the bowl, I think It got crud from the tank in the cylinder and fouled the plug.  I would guess the same if it did not have good comp.  Thanks trowel, how are things?

Things are good, busy, little wet out there, mowing in the rain suxs, 11 1/2 hours today, at least the rain stopped this time.

 

 

Glad to see you have time and moving with the WH, sweet tractor, currently hunting down the throttle control for you.

 

With a Carter N carb it is usually something simple, good carb, check the air vent passage and pull the main throttle speed screw, sometimes crap like you said was in the bowl cakes itself inside.

     I really think it is the plug, I am getting fuel and spark.  when I put the plug in it will cough but not run, take the plug out it is all wet, clean and re-install the same will happen, cough but not run.  I have had this happen before, the plug gets enough crap on it and will not fire under comp.  getting a plug tomorrow if that does not work I will pull the head and check the valves. 

    The worst part is I really want this thing to run for the weekend, I want to take it to the GAS-UP,  oh well
