Today the '66 110 got a bit of custom body work after taking a tumble down the creek bank next to the house.
It seems that between the hard and slippery tires (original Firestones) and possible operator error, it got away from my father-in-law who volunteered to mow the lawn. He is OK and the tractor is retrieved and back in the garage. Fortunately neither ended up in the water. Not sure if it was running when it ended upside down or not. While looking it over I noticed some oil leaks in new places. I don't know if there is gas in the oil. The tumble broke the steering wheel (I have another that needs repaired), damaged the front of the already-cracked hood, and I am not sure what else.
I have threatened to use parts from it to fix the '67 that my grandfather purchased new that is at my dad's place in Ohio. I was using it until the 120 finished then I was going to sell it as a whole. I think it is worth more in parts now than complete. This has just confirmed that I NEED to replace the hard, slippery original rear tires on the 120
. Turf or ATV is the question. If you have any question about the tires on your tractor, I suggest replacing them sooner than later.
