Well this past Friday I traded my Allis B-212 for a Wheel Horse. I also have the 60" deck for it as well. Right now my problem is the engine surges but when i put choke on a little bit it smooths out. Carb is dirty right? Also I was wondering what year it might be as well.

Could be old gas or dirty carb or partly clogged fuel filter or collapsed fuel line or Fuel pump needing rebuilt.Could be anything really but I'm leaning towards dirty carb or Fuel pump.

 

Surging is either a Lean condition or timing is slightly off.Either way I would not run it very long till it's fixed.Lean running engine runs very hot.It's really hard on the pistons,rings,connecting rods,head gaskets,heads an valves.

I blew out carb a little and it fixed it but then the next morning was surging again. Probably sucked up a piece of dirt or something?

I would pull the tank and work towards the engine with new hose and a filter.

Does it have the forward swept front axle?

I believe they were made in 1989 if I'm not mistaking. I believe they had a faster ground speed also. At least faster than the standard 520h.
HC standing for hydro commercial. I think you'll be very pleased with it. However the on and are very thirsty.

If the model number is C1-20OE02, then it is a 1989 520-HC.

My sticker is ate up pretty good all I can read is E02     20530. So yea probably the 1989 then.

 

Anyone know where I could get another sticker made?

Your coming up in the world now. All the WH lovers will be making eyes at your tractor, and the girls at the drive-in will want a ride.

 

Another thing to check is if you have a leaking carb/engine gasket.

Yesterday when I was working on taking off the intake manifold I noticed two bolts on one side were loose so I tightened them and blew out the carb through the top 3 holes. Seems to run smooth now. Might still end up taking off carb to give it a good cleaning though.
