hi, im new to this stuff and was wondering if you guys could give me some tips.
im picked up a john deere 110 for a project to work on with my dad.
we got it running but there are no brakes so we cant adjust the variable speed stuff.
what im asking is if the brake from a 1969 will work on a 68'

Michael, I moved this topic from Garden tractor forum to the JD forum since it is a JD related question. I can't help with a 110 question but there are quite a few experts on this forum that should be able to answer your question.

I looked up brakes on the Deere parts site. It does not show a serial number change for either the brake pad or the brake pulley. So it does look like it should work.

Welcome! My suggestion is to shell out the $ and pick up a John Deere service manual. In the end the headaches saved are worth the money, especially when adjusting the variator. It took me 2+ years to finally get my 110 figured out.

Michael,

Yes, you can interchange the brakes. The gear drive transmissions all used the same brake bands. At least up until 1974. After 1974, someone else will have to help you, as I don't collect anything newer than that year. If you need anything else, ask away, and we'll be more than willing to help you out.

Sweet find that looks very nice. A coat of paint and you will have one sharp tractor.

Great looking 110, much better than the one I looked at a couple of days ago.

You may want to locate the tin shield that goes over the head since it's primary purpose is it direct the cooling air through the cooling fins on the head. Without it the cooling air will not do it's job. Along with that getting either the correct muffler or fabricating an exhaust system to get the hot exhaust air out of the engine bay may a wise move.

IMHO the two items that will kill the older engine quickest are lack of lubrication (running it low on or out of oil) and proper cooling (usually a mouse nest where it should not be).

i have the muffler but its rusted out. unfortunately the engine is spraying unburned gas out the eexhaust pipe. also i think the head gasket is leaking. when ever you drive its smokes like a 2 stroke . any tips on how to rebulid it or take it someone who can. by the way im out in the Banks/Forest Grove area in Oregon.

Yeah, that gasket was blown. Amazing these engines can run like that.

Did you find anything else major wrong? Any clue where the oil was coming from?
