This is my 73' Wheel Horse Project AKA Wheelin Horse. My dad bought a new 1975 c-120 which is pert near identical and this one brings back the feels of being a kid on Ohio and riding one of these beasts all summer. When I saw it online for sale I knew i had to make the drive to Southern VA to pick it up off a kid who couldnt get it running and had the poor ole tractor sitting out in the dirt. As soon as it was in the truck and on the way home, I knew it would be my new perma-friend on the trails of NC. Now on to the Project..
On the tow strap right outta the truck haha
Carb and fuel pump cleaned and reinstalled
Points cover blasted and gasket made
Clutch pulley removed and ready to test on my home trails:
Shes a cruiser
New vinyl made by my lovely wife for the project
Picked up some tires, just had to dismount them and should have them on this week. Ill post up pics with them on ASAP

She's a nice ol' Horse for sure, I imagine it's a great rig on the trails. Great looking build!
Also I just wanted to say that I think it's super awesome you kept the original engine in the old girl, that doesn't happen nearly as often as it should, haha. I know Carl kept the original K-181 in his C-81 off-roader and I kept the K241 in a JD 110 I put together for my cousin to wheel with.
Looking forward to seeing 'er with the new paws!
