    Posted: 30 Sep 2013 at 12:39am
After it slowly dawned that I am the only member of this forum NOT to own a wheelhorse, I have bought one, a B165 with what seems to be a good mowing deck, to encourage my Son to cut his rather larg overgrown lawn. I have to pick this machine up in a couple of weeks, it seems to have a Briggs and Stratton Twin bore 16 HP engine, which I am told "Needs a service" does anyone have any comments about this machine or its engine? and where can I get an owners manual and workshop manual? there is a free workshop manual to download, but it does not include the B165. any advise would be welcome, thank you.

I haven't got one, either, I wanted my wife to have one instead of her invalid scooter but no dice!

Well done, I can probably sort an Operators/Wiring Manual if you have no luck.
Or I can point you in the direction to obtain one.
The B165 was built between 1980 and 83. Has either a Peerless (5speed) or Eaton (Auto) Tranny. 16hp B&S Engine either 41707 or 42707. So it depends on your Tractor Model number which one you have.
Regards.

glad to see that you have a wheelhorse plonker, as richard said we should be able to find you a manual to download.
I have 12 in my stable plus another special under wraps for next season and a cub cadet

Thanks for that, I shall pick it up in two weeks when I get back from holiday, then I will need the manuals to sort it out! The seller said " it starts, splutters and dies!" Ah well, here we go again!
