The all green of the early machines looks so much different than the green/black on the later machines like my 120.  This gives me an idea what my 110 will look like when it goes together.

When I was going through the box of grills this was the only green one.I would've bought a black one if the one I got wasn't avail.It still was getting painted green though.

Last sunday night I drilled the  headlight bezel blanks out.Last night I started to repair the crack in the front of the hood.A while back I put fiberglass mesh on the underside.On the topside of the hood I put a layer of JB weld clear epoxy in the crack.I also did the border around the bezel decal w/silver paint,and also the raised part of the bezelTonight I made the battery cables up,and hooked them up.I topped off the engine oil.I still need to get the transmission fluid for the rear.I tried to start it and the pto clutch just clicked.I'm not sure if I have the switch hooked up backwards or what but I pulled switch out and it cranked over.I thought that would be the on position.The switch was pushed in when I tried to start it the first time.Does anybody know off hand if I'm correct on what I'm thing?Well on the brighter side of things "IT'S ALIVE" :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: . I was truly shocked when it started.exspecially after cleaning everything,reseting switches and rewiring the tractor.

I know it's been a while, and a lot longer than I wanted this project to take, but I finally got the hood painted,and decals on the hood. between work and helping with the farm I don't get a lot of free time. I'll get pictures then hopefully this week.

I got a rear lift strap today to mount a sleeve hitch. I know the sleeve hitch is green for the 68, but does anyone know what color the strap should be.

Here it is all done and ready for shows this year. I finished it over winter but didn't get around to getting it out and getting pictures.I think it turned out very well,just wish it didn't take me so long to finish.

They are hard to find.I think that is my 2nd set, The other set is on my worker 112.Can't see the wheels because of the wheel weights though.

I had a set last year. The guy who got them from me may still have them. I'll check and see.

Beautiful 140!!! That thing is 100x's better than when new.
