Wheel horse

Postby john2189 » Sun May 03, 2020 10:25 pm

A friend gave me two Wheel Horse tractors. One is a C 165. 8 speed doesn’t run haven’t looked at yet. The other is an older one with a Hh120 techumsea motor. No spark. It also has a sickle bar, I’m assuming it’s a Haban looks to be in good shape. Anyway I can’t find a serial and model number on the older tractor. Anyone know where it could be? I’ve looked on the internet but no luck. John

Is the older on a C165 also?
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Gonna be hard to tell what it is with no decals or serial number.

Yes I can find tractors that resemble it on tractor data. But they all have Koehler engines. Not thecumsa

Sorry I can't see the pictures too good - Wheel Horse went through a few iterations of how they named their tractors, starting with a combination of numbers representing hp, drive, and year, to names, to no names to A,B,C, and D series. A C-165 was a early 80s C-series with a 16 hp engine and could be a 8 speed gear drive or a hydrostatic drive tractor. The Tecumseh engine one is probably from the late 60s to early 70s - it has a name or a model number on the side, we can narrow down the year.

Here is a handy chart for most Wheel Horse models. I would also recommend going to the Red Square Wheel Horse forum and looking around a bit. https://www.wheelhorseforum.com/

Hi T mo
I went through the list you sent. I see nothing that matches the hh120 motor which I can’t get spark. It was full of mouse nest and damp. I wonder if it was a replacement motor. The c 165. I took the motor apart and it has a broken rod. I hear this is common for these motors. I have parts on order.
Is there anything special about the sickle mower? It looks like it might fit the c165.

Here’s pics


By the looks of that hood it should be around a late 60s model. Cant think of any models around that time that had Tecumseh engines. Look on the hood stand underneath the dash, the model and serial number plate should be up under there.
