Hey everyone. My name is Brandon and im new here. I just picked up a 1970 112. The tractor is in pretty decent shape, and I used to it to mow for the first time this week. Its missing the grille, and the headlight bezel is broke. I have 2 questions I havent found answers for. How does the grille mount in these tractors? Does anyone have any pictures of how they look when mounted? Im just not sure if im missing more parts than just the grille itself, and i want to replace it. Also, what is the plug gap for the HH-100? I think its 0.30 but im not 100% sure. Thanks in advance, Brandon

Hi Brandon, welcome to GTTalk. I'm not familiar with the 112 but I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will be along shortly.

Welcome!

What is the serial number of the tractor? www.jdparts.com shows two different grills. 16 in the pic is AM32372 and 10 is M44232. NOt sure when the switch was made.

You've got it, .030 is correct.

Welcome Brandon! Be sure to check out the parts diagrams for your tractor at jdparts.com. JD is very strict with it's copyright enforcement so we don't have nay manuals available on this site. You can purchase them from JD. If you need info. you can also post your questions here and hopefully there will be members who can help.

Here you go Sir. I believe this is the type of grille you will have. It's pictured as #10 in the diagram above. It just snaps in between the hood supports. I'm not sure either where the serial number break is, but if this isn't correct, just let us know, and I'll take a picture of the older style on my 140. The early 110/112, 120/140's all used the same type of grilles from 1968-1970, but changed at some point in either late 1970 or early 1971.

Good luck, and keep us posted if this isn't right.
Troy

On my 69 110 it has the pinned in grill on my 70 and71 110 it is the snap in like in Troy's photo. It really depends on the type of hood supports you have. I am pretty sure though that the snap in will work with any of them.

Just on a side note I have ran unto a third type of grill . It is a snap in type but it is taller and i am sure it was used for the tractors without headlighs.
