I just bought a 1979 C 141 Wheelhorse garden tractor. I know someone on this forum has a couple of real nice Wheelhorse tractors, but I can't remember who it is. I have a few questions. If you know about Wheelhorse, please let me know. Thanks Greg

I got four of them, don't necessarily mean I know everything about them.

Do you happen to know the color of red on those tractors?

No I don't. I bought a couple of spray cans of paint to paint the foot rests on the 518 and 520 when I bought them.
Bought the paint from the dealer in Rockford Il.. There's a new red and an old red and I don't remember which is which.
Try the red square Wheel Horse forum, somebody will know.

IH 2150 is close and I painted my little Lawn Ranger with Massy Ferguson red.

Those tractors look beautiful. I can only hope mine turns out half as good. I used Van Sickel Massey Ferguson red on my Massey 14. From a spray can. It literally took weeks for that paint to dry. I won't be using that again. I recently bought another MF 14, and this Wheelhorse. I always wanted a Wheelhorse. Thanks for your help. Greg

I used cheap nine bucks a quart Farm and Fleet Massey paint plus a splash of hardener on that little Lawn Ranger. Turned
out way better than expected.

Wheel Horses are pretty easy to work on plus since 1973 I think any implement can be used on a newer tractor with that
attacha matic hitch and can be changed without tools. I have an advertisement that shows how to install the mower deck in
I think 65 seconds, I've done it but not lately.

Looks good from here but your going to have to know the story of the horse and the tractor.

My C-141 is as complete as I can make it right no. I am waiting on the engine decal set, and a new head light lens. It's not going to win any blue ribbons at the county fair, but I am happy with it.

Sure looks nice. I had a B100 or C100 I bought in about 1980, looked just like yours but a 10hsp st. transmission. Think
it was a 1975 or 6, was a favorite of mine but I sold it.

Where'd you get that seat?

My old tiller tractor has a 14 hsp. Kohler engine, must have a million hours on it and still runs strong.
