Here is a pic of the bumper all mounted up to my Caterpillar, a factory one I picked up for a Craftsman, and I got it off the tractor half hour before he shoved it up into the pile with the FEL. Unfortunately I was there to see it, and just happened to turn and see it right at that moment....
The bumper is stout, I stood all 140 pounds of me on it after installing it lol.

Wheel Horse has a pre 1973 steering wheel on it, but seat springs are post 1972.

Doesn't matter, will have to rebuild the steering as someone cut the shaft off. But as far as usable it will make a nice electric project.

The 61-16K801 is a 1976 C-160 8-speed and the 03190 serial number is consistent with 1976 models.

The 6311 is the Julian build date - 311th day of 1976 = Saturday November 6, 1976 (They were building 1977 models at this time)

It should be 5311 - 311th day of 1975 = Friday November 7, 1975. See this a lot and don't know if the number is hard to read or whether they were in fact stamped wrong. The model year change over was October 1 with Wheel Horse's fiscal year as most companies do today.

It doesn't matter, they are the same thing, just different companies call them different things, and I call them SLEEVE hitchs.

The WH looks to me like a 74-77 B or C series tractor with a 78-80's steering wheel installed.

My uncle has a jeep and don't ask what model he explained the different models but I was busy looking on each side of the road for stuff so it went in one ear and out the other :). He goes to all the off road places he took me to Gilbert Minnesota it was fun on the trails.
