Howdy.  I have a Wheelhorse GT-14 tractor that I use to plow snow off the road, lay off  and cultivate my garden.  Seems like there is a lot of info on Garden Tractors to be found here.  I am about to get into the process of taking the rear end apart on this Wheelhorse.  Evidently some kind of retainer clip has came off one of the axles and the axle wants to slide out of the tractor.  I've done this before, but it was about 20 years ago.

Welcome to GTT. Any pics to share of your trusty stead?

 

Here's a picture of the Wheelhorse the day after a storm hit and blew a tree down on it.  I sawed it up and the tree went into the stove.  And the Wheelhorse is still going.

:welcome: to GTTalk
Glad your ride survived that, the new box store specials would be crumpled like yesterday's tinfoil.

Thanks for joining, looking forward to going thru the process with you.

Welcome to GTT. Checkout our Manuals Section for the info you need. While you are getting into your trany, you might as well clean and overhaul the whole thing. Replacing seals and worn bearings now will save alot later. One of the gears in my neighbors WH broke and it is no longer available. You want to protect them as much as you can. Good Luck, Rick

If that's not the poster for how well the older machines were made, I don't know what is. I mean, the rear fender's not even resting on the tire!

 

Thanks for sharing the pic :wave:

Does anyone here have any information of where to get these seals, bearings, gaskets, etc.?  I live about an hour from Knoxville, TN, in case I cannot get them online.

Welcome to the forum.

 

I always like seeing the Stinking Creek sign as we head down 75 going to the "forge"
