Over the weekend I picked up the cousin of CreepyCrawler's C-120, a 1974 Wheel Horse C-100.  It has a running 10hp kohler K241, but the internal governor is messed up.  So I'm thinking down the road I will repair this engine and put it on my 69 Raider 12.  In the meantime this tractor will be the one built for TTC 2021 for the following reasons:
-highly desirable 8 pinion 8 speed
-the steering is tight and not all broken and bent up
-separate clutch and brake pedal which will make pulley swapping easier

So this will be getting the 18hp duromax and all the neccessary off road upgrades.

Here's a small update.  I've been working on tearing down the tractor and getting it power washed.  I'm glad I found this one.  It's in way better shape to build for hard core off road TTC.
74 Wheel Horse C-100 Img_5213
To Do List:
-Lock rear end, orders seals and gasket
-Order tires, rims, and new front bearings
-replace tie rods and align (in stock, just need paint)
-replace steering column bushing in dash (this is a bad one)
-install duromax when it gets here
-trans braces
-front bumper
-rob seat from raider 12
-build another gas pedal/dual throttle
-order agm battery, tethered kill and make a wiring harness
-modify clutch and pulley system

@Wheelinhorse I never painted the other one, I just painted the trans, tie rods, and touch up. It actually came that way from the scrap yard. I kinda like the patina on this one but it is a little rough. I've though about doing some kind of oil treatment to it down the the road.

I got the diff carrier bearings replaced in the transmission.  I also upgraded the upper support bearing for the steering column.  taking a different direction with this tractor.  I just want to put it back together unlocked with the K241 as a rustoration and use it as a worker maybe some off-road stuff.

I like the upper support bearing upgrade, very rugged!

Cool tractor man I'll be keeping an eye on this.

I got my rear tires mounted and in the electrical system put back together.  I’m still waiting on miscellaneous parts to make it driving again but I can at least start it up very soon.

I found a light bar that bolts right in with a little massaging.  Clears the air cleaner and only draws .85 amps.

The seal I was waiting on came in so I got the belt put back on and had a really good successful first shakedown run with no issues.  I just have some easy details to finish like wheel weights, voltmeter, a stack and maybe a new gas cap.  I got my plow mounted up and I’m excited to use it this winter.

I put a stack and rear wheel weights on this tractor. I absolutely love plowing with it.

I scrubbed down the rusty hood and fender paint using water and SOS pads. Then I applied a coat of linseed oil and it came out great!

Comment on linseed oil for those of us who do not know, my dad has a metal tray on casters that he puts his tools on, one day he was using a rag to oil something with linseed oil and just put the rag on that tray with a bunch of his tools, went inside and a couple hours later we noticed something was burning in the shop, it was the linseed oil on the rag that just randomly combusted, he wheeled the tray outside and dumped it in the snow, but it burned all his tools, ands probably would have burned his shop down had he not put it out... anyway, my point is, if you have linseed oil on a rag, it is possible that it will just light the rag on fire and cause serious damage.

@TechnoChicken oh my God! I had no idea! I did a small Internet search and it revealed that the oil soaked rags are extremely combustible so I immediately put the couple I had in water. I was grinding around those today!…oops

I routinely dry any rags that have been used with boiled linseed oil. Don’t pile them up. Hang them to dry. BLO polymerizes (turns to plastic essentially) as it dries. That is what makes it good for coatings.
