Glad you have one, they are hard to find because of only being used 1 year.

It looks like it could be the original engine. The original engines on the 68 140's has the dipstick tube that goes straight up. The replacement engines had it come out the side in front of the starter. Looks like by the photo it goes straight up.

The frame, front axle,and fender pan are going tomorrow to get sandblasted.I use to do it myself but there is a local company that'll do it cheaper than i can get the sand.Go figure,saves me a little work.After it's sanblasted i'm going to prime the frame and get some welding done i found a crack above the clutch/brake pedal.I got a set of narrow front rims for it tonight that i'm going to get a set of tri ribs for them.I'll try and get pics in the a.m.

Ran into a little problem on the right rear axle today.I was pulling the left side hub and the right side hub and brake rotor fell off.Turns out the key slot in the axle is boke out.I think it'll be okay i'm not going to pull with it just drive around to shows.The axle is tapered with the key way in the hub and axle with a nut on the end.I'm thinking it shouldn't slip.Whats everyones opinion on this.Any feedback will be appreciated.I'll get pics tomorrow.

Right side must have been jealous that you weren't working on it! Can't tell you what to do about it though, except don't weld it back on!

Craig,

I'll check with one of my 140 parts suppliers, Roy Parker, to see if he has a set of axles for you. His prices are usually fair, and if he doesn't have a set, I'm not sure where to look. I don't think Joe takes his transmissions completely apart, or I'd recommended him. I'll send Roy an email tomorrow, and hopefully have some news for you tomorrow night.

Troy

axle 001.JPG axle 002.JPG
Here is a picture of the damage.I bought another set of axles on ebay.I'll be tearing into the tranny within the next week.While i have it apart i think i'll be painting pcs individually because it looks like some green between pump and trans. Alum hydro pump i'll leave bare.The transmission itself apears to be alum color.Does anyone know if this is the correct colors,or what the color skeem should be?

I've never seen the original 140 transmission/rear end up close. It's a completely different beast than the Dana rear end used in the later 140's and 300 series. I hope your repair goes smoothly.

Craig, keep the tranny the original aluminum color. If you want to clean it up real good, I have some industrial strength aluminum cleaner that does a great job. Let me know and I'll walk so up to you some evening.

I got the hood out tonight and decided to repair the crack in the front.I still didn't get my frame back from the sand blaster yet.I almost have the transmission back together and painted.I'll have everything waiting on the frame.I paint the parts at my grandparents place and want to get a rolling chasis then bring it home to reassemble.

Here is what i came up with to repair hood.I put a pc of alum flat stock and lightly vice gripped it to the hood to square the front up.I put alum foil in between hood and alum flat stock so it wouldn't get adheared to the hood.I figured i can peel and sand alum foil off if it sticks.

Hopefully i'll get trans finished up this weekend and get pictures posted.

If you need the front guard Hapco has them! Also 68 H3 is the only tractor that has two valve system for the hydraulics.

I am finally getting around to posting the pictures of the transmission after it was painted and reassembled.My original intensions were to leave the aluminum housing orig with no paint on it but that didn't pan out.I could not find any tape that would stick to the housing.I tried painting it without getting overspray on it but that didn't work either.So i painted it with rustoleum alum color.massey 018.JPG massey 019.JPG
