Nice find Don! Yours wears the same tires as my '66 110. Those are a softer compound than the other style tires offered. If you are not going for a resto any time you could sell the tire and use that to fund your project.

Wanna sell them to me? I will give you $50 for all 4 :p

Wow Don, What a great score! Looks like Troy and Travis had the same idea I had on the tires. You just don't find that nice of original tires anymore. I would say that that 66 does not have many hours on it and was taken very good care of. I am pretty sure you can still get a new wiring harness through Deere if you need one. Or at least I hope so because I will be needing one in the near future. Enjoy your progect.

I have owned the John Deere 110 now for just over 24 hours and it already looks different than when i got it, ha,ha. I have really enjoyed it already. I ordered my 26-12-12 ag tires for it today . It is a nice break from toy building. There is not one dent in the fenders, seat, running boards or main frame sheet metal. The hood is the only bad part of the whole tractor. I forgot I also got a Owners manual disc with it too the owner said cost him over $50.00 .

Wiring harness is something like $25 from Deere. I installed one last fall in my '66 along with a generic 3-poll solenoid and internal resistor coil from Napa.

Looks like you got a real deal on a tractor in very good shape. Congratulations! My 1st JD garden tractor was a110, back in 1977. I don't remember what year it was. The attacments I had were the mower deck, snowblower, and rear tiller. I loved it, before moving on to a 140, and now a 318.

Not sure if I should post here too or not for just JD people. Here are my new tires for my 110 grandson project

The only pulling it will be doing is maybe a cute little trailer I'll make for him too to ride in . He is only 18 months old.

Don, that's a super wide tired 110. Great angle on the photo. It looks like it would float LOL. Those are real nice tires. Had a set of them on an x475.

Thanks Brian, it looks pretty sweet from that view, ha,ha. Here is todays progress picture after I built the brackets to raise the fenders two inches. You can also see where i cut out a 2 inch corner knotch to have room for the inside of the lugs on the rear of the running boards. This week I will start sanding the easy parts and should get a lot of them painted . I'm already thinking about the next mini tractor project and it is going to be a JD4020 or a JD 730 narrow front . Both tractors we still have on the farm from my childhood. Fun, fun .
