The opposed twins in these last a lot longer than the ones in the Simplicity, Deere, and Cub applications because of the way they sit in the tractors.

Too bad you didn't get a 48" side discharge deck. They mow nicer.

If you ever break the plastic seat deck, the newer metal ones will bolt right ondOd

I used to be all Wheel Horse before Toro made me mad when my main tractor bit the dust and they quit making the "classic" stlye in hydros. That's when I switched to Simplicity and bought a new Soveriegn.

The Wheel Horse has the pto out the side with the jugs to the front and back.The oil pick ups on the opposed twins are not centered in the block side to side, so when you mow sideways along a steep hill with Deere, Simplicity or Cub applications you can end up having the pick up sticking up out of the oil if the hill is steep enough with the wrong side of the engine pointing up. I don't remember which side of the block the pick up is on anymore. Been a long time since I had one of those apart.

FYI

Specs on the M18/M20 engines is:

Up to 35 degree angle both left and right.

30 degrees both front and back.

I think that the boxer twins held up better on the sideways tractors like the Wheel Horse is that they sucked at lot less crap into the flywheel fan and thus keep the cooling fins clean and cool.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
