A quick clip after a 4 hour fight with numerous problems that popped up one after the other.. first bad gas, then no spark, then a broken fuel line, then a screw literally MELTED off the starter switch, .. and after all that, now she has the convenience of self-starting!? Must have been a loose wire, but after re-watching I got a good laugh out of this clip. I grew up on this thing, learnt to drive on it, learnt the 4 cycle principle, workings of a hydro, how not to rewire a tractor.. it's a 1968 Wheel-Horse Electro 12, the Cadillac of WH for the era. Hydro lift and drive, lights, electric PTO, cigarette lighter, and it once even had chrome hubcaps!

Cool old WH! Thanks for sharing the video with us.

Was this a long awaited resurrection?

It's a Kohler K301 12hp. Hadn't started it in a month or so, but made the mistake of filling it with 5 year old gas that was meant for the fireplace last time I ran it.. then things went downhill. LOL! It's in dire need of a rebuild, a quart of oil to the hour, burns more oil then gas.
