Snagged this for $400 today with the deck, brought it home and tested it out pulling the Speedex 820. It works great! Even has the original fuel gauge (functional, though not visible). They guy has to find the grill, but knows he has it.

Doesn't look like I am, the sun was in my eyes, and my dad isn't that great with the camera. Oh well, he is skilled in other things and I love him for it, and for putting up with my Hobby/Addiction.

I believe a '72 because the 14hp Kohler and the ind. rear breaks. I have to get the S# though.

From WFM:

For 1969, the 140 received a 15% upgrade in power with a move to the 14 horsepower Kohler cast iron K321AS. Also new for the '69 model was individual rear brakes. These allowed sharper turns, as well as the ability to feather a wheel if it was spinning. A change a little more difficult to detect was a switch to a true three spool valve on the H3 models.
At Serial number 30001, for the 1971 model year a change was made in the type of hydrostatic unit used. This change incorporated a pinion and ring gear design rather than the bull gears used on previous models. The rear axle diameter was also increased. Rear brakes were changed for the disc type used up to this time to a more reliable drum brake system. Individual rear wheel brakes were retained on the H3 models.


How many legs does the deer on the grill have?

No grill at the moment. The one on the steering wheel I believe has 2? It has the drum brakes, not the disc so it is at least a '71.
