Hi, I'm working on a Wheel Horse Charger 10 and was recommended over to this forum for advice.




There it is, the engine needs new gaskets, I'm going to paint it, the seat need redone, and a few other odds and ends.

That's it thanks for any help!!

Welcome to the forum and thanks for the pics. I'm sure we have some good members here that will help you on your Wheelhorse. Not sure if we have a manual for that in the manuals section or not.

Thanks for the welcome I don't think I will be videoing the rebuild not all of it anyway, I'm not 100% sure what the year is I will have to look I forgot.

The history behind this tractor is my dad went on a lawn tractor spree, everyone he seen he had to have so we got up to oh... 5 or 6 tractor (which from the look of this forum is nothing compared to some of you guys) but we didn't have the room for them so they started getting sold this one I like I had got it running once before but it smoked bad out of the exhaust that's when we noticed the oil being blown out of the head. We didn't have the money to fix it so we drained the gas from the system and parked it out back. One day my dad walks out back and says " that thing needs to go away" I didn't say anything at first but then I slowly started bringing it up more and one day I walked out and hauled it into the shop and started tearing it down. My dad wasn't to happy about that considering he had just cleaned his shop.

This is one of the tractors we kept. Good old AC

PS: The reason I sound like I live with my parents is because I do. I'm 15

Couple notes on Horses.....every shaft thru that back body section has little bushings. Don't loose those or try not to damage. I had to buy some new once from parts tree and they were riduculous $8 a piece. Never found any bushings that were that tin anywhere else. Make sure to adjust and grease up the little nylon block and it's lever ball pin from the hydro. That controls the direction and the auto stop function from pedal. Keep track of where all the little springs to levers and brakes and such go inside same housing and on the outside. Brake parts need to be on correct to have them work right again. You will find, or maybe have now already that there is certain order things need to come off and on, so you don't end up removing items a second time because you forgot a bolt or a part can't slip by the one you just installed. Foot pads are one of the last things to mount as example, Belt guard before the fenders and such. Get and read the parts manuals and any service manuals you can find. Should be some on here, or can get from Red Square, the Horse collectors forum, another good place to join. Epay always has things too.
