What models share common parts with a 1973 Wheel Horse 8hp, 4spd, no name, I have been told a B80 is close, mainly interested in the lift and PTO, as mine our missing.  Here is a pic of my tractor.

Most any C series from 1973 on. Some B series have a shorter wheel base. This mostly affects sheet metal.

The 8hp models and a few of the very early 10hp models use an engine with a 1" crankshaft. The pto clutches are the same as far as I know but the inner race for the large pto bearing is only different on the ID to fit the 1" and 1-1/8" crankshafts.

 

The 8hp 4-speed is a medium frame tractor with a 43-1/2" wheelbase.

Would this be a correct mule drive for my tractor and 48" deck, guy has this and some other parts for a decent price, may go after them if they are still available on Thursday(payday), says they came with a C120 if that helps.

That is likely the correct one. A large nut holds the pulleys on the shaft.

 

Believe there is only one other for the 60" deck that is different. On it the pulleys sit at different angles and the shaft is removed to change the pulleys. The large nut is on the inside and also secures the shaft to the bracket.

Adding

Keep track of the spacers between the cover and first pulley (1/2" long) and between the pulleys (5/8" long)

I don't want to be bossy, but an 8hp won't run a 48" very well.

What size do you recommend?

36" If your only mowing a smooth lawn that doesn't get very tall, you might get away with a 42" maybe.

Get you a 36" rear discharge and it will be a mowing fool.

I'm likely only going to mow with this tractor for fun occasionally, main mowing duties go to my dad's Cub Cadet 782, I also have two other machines with decks, I should probably measure my deck to see what I actually have instead of eyeballing it, it is a rear discharge.

Ok, deck is a 48", has an opening on the back but has a side discharge, a local guy deals in WH may see about a trade.  Going to get the mule drive tomorrow evening, he has a sleeve hitch that I'm gonna pick up too, and possibly a deck, but from what he said, the deck might be rougher than I want to mess with.

Bought the Sleeve hitch ad mule drive for $40, going back next week to get a decent 42" deck for $50 and maybe a front blade for my JD200.  Pics to come tomorrow.

Does not look like a Wheel Horse deck to me but have not seen many.

The 48" decks have the height adjuster on the left side of the deck.

The 42" decks have the height adjuster on the right side of the deck like the photo.

Decks are sized by their width of cut.

 

This is what the 36" deck looked like for 1973 and the largest deck listed for the 8hp 4-Speed. The hardware above the deck is similar for all sizes of deck.

The deck is marked Wheel Horse is several places, the one I am getting has the mounts like the one you posted, measured from blade tip to blade tip underneath was +/- 42", could a 42' not be mounted to my tractor?
