Hey guy's new member here and just recently picked up a automatic 12 wheel horse, and if anybody has any pictures of what it looks like! I have been told that i need the long frame type plow, but i have seen two different types...one type seems the frame is straight all the way back while the other seems to curve somewhat inward..thank you Ron

Welcome to the forum. Hopefully some of the wheel horse guys can help you out. If you don't get much response here, just ask and we can move the thread over to the Wheelhorse forum for you.

Yep, long frame. Only diff is the plow frame is little longer, about a foot of it is straight in back. Short frame shaped like A, no straight part. Think either will mount, just short won't allow angling, hits tires. Keep in mind you need mount that bolts to front of rear axle to mount one. Many times this is missing on used blades or got left on last tractor it was mounted too. See if yours has one. Also need the turning handle and wire links to operate. Again sometimes missing. Check out a manual for blades, might be one here.

I found that a short frame plow on a long frame tractor would hit the brake band and the brake drum.

You need a long frame plow.

Oh, :welcometogttalk:

Welcome to GTT. You've got a well made tractor. Go into our Manuals Section and download the info that you need. I have 8 WHs and only 3 plows. The straight fits my Raider 9. I recently purchased a bent frame plow, I hope will fit my C160 or C81. Post some pics. Good Luck, Rick

Look at that picture and note the axle mount laying at back and the lever with all the link rods shown.  Need all that to be correct. Some things CAN be built, but not as easy as would seem to make  one work. One of the easiest manual lift blades I've ever used.

In 1984 the blade went from 42" to 48" which is better when angled. Everything else is the same.

I found that these are pretty easy to modify if needed.  I bought the plow and blower as a pair and they came off a newer tractor.  The newer tractor had a manual pto clutch and my 16 auto has the electric pto clutch.  On the blade the angle lever would hit the pto clutch, all I did was flip the lever around and relocate the guides on the lever for the linkage rod.  Lift hooked up the same as the newer machine, as did the rear mount.

 

The blower wasn't difficult either and the only issues were again caused by the electric clutch.  I cannot get the drive belt on the clutch without removing the drive pulley on the blower, no big deal I'll be one of the few who can get that pulley off without destroying it.  The other issue that required a bit of effort to resolve was the chute crank mount that attaches to the mid tachmatic, this I had to cut and add a piece to the tube to move it away from the pto clutch and change the angle at which it sits again no big deal.
