That tractor looks and runs really nice Alan. I didn't see any smoke from the big Kohler single. It should be a great snow mover for you this coming winter.

That's the blower the WH folks want. With a C160 and that blower, your going to be a snow blowing fool this winter!

I'm sure that tractor will have more sentimental value then monetary.  A good memory of your dad for you, but as Daniel said "Bittersweet".  I'm glad you were able to get it and bring it home.

Thanks for posting up the pics & video.  Looks like a great machine, now i want one of those, doesn't get much better than a blower w/hydro lift.  Around here that would sell for 800+, and you can't put a price on family history imo.  Heck there's a red blower alone on maine craigs right now for 200 and i bet it will sell pretty quick

I would like to give it a fresh oil change and filter for the tranny, any of you guys know what it takes? A google search shows conflicting info.
BTW, I am 98% sure it's a 1975 by the model number. 1-0481

Your C-160 is a 1975;

it takes 2 quarts of engine oil (E-1, API SJ @ 25 hours)

and 6 quarts of transmission oil (T-4, SAE 10w30 @ 100 hours),

[Wheel Horse Lubrication Recommendations].

I had a few minutes over the last couple of nights.
The seat was really bad and not safe IMHO.
The back had been removed harshly at some point and "repaired"

Also, the fender pan had been reinforced at some point too.

I didnt feel safe putting my kids on it and decided this was a great place to use a seat the was headed for the junk.

I replaced the bottom wood and covering and added the armrests. Lubed up the glides underneath too.

I had to drill some holes in the fender pan, but with its condition... I didnt feel to bad about it.
Looks decent on there, better than the old one at least.

The seat adjustment is nice. Doubt I will ever use it at either extreme, but nice to have it so it can move easily for the different people who may be using it.

Nice seat you put together there Alan. Much better than what was there.

It's important to have a good seat on there for the kids. One you can keep clean.

Remember, there was a girl one Seinfeld, that caught something off a tractor seat.
