As many have said, Looking Good!  I had a 140 H1 for about 20 years and loved it. I worked it pretty hard, and finally replaced it with a 318 fall of 2011.

 

I looked through your entire thread this morning and noticed the bolts on the battery pan. I wonder if they should be shorter to lessen the chance of damaging the battery. Though clamping the battery in should help prevent that. Just wondering.

I actually worked on my 140 tonight.I've been working 60 to 72 hours a week for the last 2 years and don't get a lot of free time anymore.I actually have my first sat off tommorrow since fathers day weekend.2 weekends ago I wire wheeled the seet pan and primered it.The seat pan had some pitting so I did three coats of primer then sanded just the back of the pan that will be exposed after mounted.Primed the back again and went heavy over the pitting.Sanded and reprimed and it was to my liking.Last weekend I then gave it 2 coats of green where the seat cushion sits.Flipped it over and did the bottom and back 2 coats.Wet sanded,another coat of green,wednesday I wet sanded again and gave it the final coat.I brought it home tonight and installed my new Hapco high back seat cushion.I then mounted seat on the tractor,and it looks great.

Then I also mounted the rectifier regulator,the fuel tank,and the coil.I mounted and set the governor,and put the throttle cable in place,but need to get the hardware for the lever.

On sunday I got the throttle and choke cables fastened to the dash and onto the carb.Started wiring tractor,and installed solenoid.Tonight I cleaned up and installed the cigarette lighter,cleaned up the pto switch,and ran the hot wire from amp gauge to solenoid.Both the cigarette lighter and pto switch I used steel wool to clean and polish them.The chrome on the lighter really cleaned up nice.The switch cleaned up but is still dull.Although it is a cast alum housing I didn't want to paint it.I'll try and take pictures tomorrow night.

Worked on the wiring again tonight.I ran the wire for the electric pto,and hooked up 3 wires to the pto switch.Just have to go from pto switch to neutral safety switch and that'll be done.I'm getting there slowly.Hope to have it pretty well finished by the end of sept.We'll see.

Got any more pics of the work?  The area under the hood looks much different in green than in blitz black like my 120.  I am taking notes for my '68 110.

I'll have to take more.I just have to run the wires for the lights and the wiring will be complete.Was there anything in particular you wanted to see more shots of?

I finished the wiring this week.Yesterday I got the starter primed and painted.I was going to bolt it on tonight but the bolts I had weren't long enough.I'll try and get some this week some time.I need to get battery cables yet and I will be able to see if it starts.I mounted the hood supports tonight and put air filter pre cleaner on and set cover in place.I need to get a 1/4-20 wing nut for it yet.I also got the muffler in place and fastened.Here are the lastest pictures.

It's the original muffler that was on tractor when I got it.I sandblasted it and gave it a coat of high temp Rustoleum black.

The other weekend I was at the steam-o-rama in Windsor,Pa and found a very straight and damage free grill.I bought it, brought it home,sanded,primed and painted the grill..I have a couple grills but all were damaged and torn screen.The following day I was at a local Mack truck show,and found some L.E.D lights for $3 a pc.I bought 2 not knowing if they would work.Turns out they are pretty close to what I needed.I should've bought more.They would've worked on my Massey  14 and 16 also.I got them mounted and just have to hook up the ground yet.Here are some updated pictures.
