WHS Site and Forum Registration. (24 Jul 2018)

I have changed the way registration is done for the site. I deleted over 300 spammers, (and prob a few good ones) last weekend alone. The forum can be seen by all the public and with 15K visitors a day, a lot of them younger people I can't take the chance on something ugly showing up on the site like is happening on the FB sites and other forums. The only pretty full proof way I can think of to keep the place clean is the new way of doing things.

On the front page under the pic it reads, "Due to all the spammers the register link for the WHS Forum has been removed. If you want to sign up for the WHS Forum just give us a call, information is on the contact us page. Thank You."

So that's where we are now lol. You can give me a call at and I can set you up. It's a lot more work for me but I feel it's worth it to keep the site clean :thumb1

Sorry so late to post about my Air Horse. I tried a few times on my ipad but it would not post. This is an Air Horse airplane tug. It uses a Wheel Horse tractor that has been converted by Tiffin Aire out of Tiffin, OH. They still do these conversions but Tiffin uses John Deere's now. For moving around general aviation aircraft, these tugs are the bomb! I found this Air Horse at my local airport. It had not been used in a few years and did not run. I bought it 'as is' for $800. I was told that it had a fuel leak and that the past owner had done some work to the engine.

I'm no mechanic but do like to fiddle. I fixed the fuel leak (rubber grommet
on bottom of gas tank), found a missing air filter assembly on eBay, cleaned the carb and placed a new carb kit, replaced battery and spark plug, added fresh fuel. I got a spark and fuel was pumping. With a little ether she fired. It ran OK at low RPM but poor at high RPM. Seemed to labor against itself and would die if you did not lower RPM. I took it to a local lawn mower shop who are good at small engines. They broke the engine apart and found that the timing gears were set one tooth off by mistake. I then fixed oil leaks by replacing all the hydro hoses and new seals on both steering hydro cylinders. I then placed new 10 ply Carlisle tires on the tug. Once I got everything working, I decided that the next proper thing to do was to have it restored. I found Geno and WHS on the internet. I knew very quickly that I had found someone who shared my enthusiasm for this project! It was very nice to meet and get to know Geno. He has a VERY nice work shop filled with tons of cool Wheel Horse toys. He answered all our million questions and even gave us a demo of his new sand blaster! Geno is very friendly and made us feel at home. So far it looks great. I am very excited to see the end result! I love getting to see the pics of the transformation here on the forum. Great work Geno!

Got the dash and all the wheels and tires done now. The hood has been reinforced with piece of 11ga plate steel. If it bends now someone needs to go on a diet. :rolling3


The under sides of all of the sheet metal is painted minus the hood. The hood will be going back into the blaster tomorrow to finish it up.
