Replacing Wheel Horse 108-R belt
I just got an older riding lawn tractor. On the side it says "Wheel Horse 108-R". It has an 8HP Briggs and Stratton engine. The only place with an actual model/serial number is on the side of the tractor and that has faded to white. ThereÂs no model number I could find under the seat or anywhere else.
This tractor drives fine, it just wonÂt cut. The reason seems to be that one of the belts is too large. It has too much slack. So I have to replace it. But I have no manual and by the looks of it, it could be a difficult job. There are two sets of pulleys and belts and this one is closest to the engine. To get it off IÂd have to get the lower pulley/belts off.
My guess is the tractor dates back to the late 1980Âs. It was given to me and IÂm wondering if itÂs even worth working on. If it is, how do I go about replacing the belt? Is there any easy way? Is there any way to even find out the exact/real model? I called Toro support (which now owns Wheel Horse) and they didnÂt have a clue what a 108-R is.
