Anyone have a link to the John Deere Service manual for the 140?
I could use a copy.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha...exactly why a JD will not likely be in my inventory. They protect their manuals like a Rottweiler protects its family...you may get close, but eventually you're gonna get bit HARD. My buddy needed one and we tried to get one for a 20 year old tractor and couldn't even get close, several sources have indicated JD's lawyers frequent forums and are on top of any attempt to share or promulgate their manuals..

Lyal's pay info is probably as close as you're gonna get...

I have some info for the 140 if you guys want to send me your personal emails in a private message. It's not a full service manual but has a lot of info. The 140 manuals are rare. I think the parts diagrams are on JDParts.com if you want to do a model search. The 140 is very similar to the 300, 316K 312 etc tractors as well.

Well at least JD is still providing a lot of parts for the older tractors. I can't say I agree with the policy of protecting their copyrights so aggressively but you can't argue with their overall business success. Laughing at this situation is not making you any friends!

Keep in mind, today's business environment isn't the same as it was years ago. There are more federal and international trade laws concerning copyright and intellect property. Manuals are IP (Intellect Property) and companies are doing more and more to protect what is theirs. There are more and more laws being written to protect companies information. The good news is that you can buy just about any manual from JD for just about any of their products. That can not be said for every brand out there.

It is all good, and no harm intended. I do like the tractors and the GT's however the whole deal w manuals is absurd...IMHO

To state the business environment isn't the same and cite the copyright laws cmon of course not. Please, I really didn't want to inflame anyone but I do wholeheartedly disagree with their policy for protecting manuals that were written over 20 years ago.It is theirs, and they will do as they please and that is their right. I do respect it. But, we cannot all agree on anything so this is my opinion and I have it...maybe someday it will change...

Brian, I am not here to agree with everyone, to your point I would probably have been better off to have just not said anything. The original poster should know about JD's protection of their manuals, to me it is a big deal. So much so, I thought enough to respond., and I wish the Original poster good luck with his tractor.

If there is no room for brand 'poking' or 'favoritism' all in fun then..., There was certainly no malice intended towards the OP...
again my opinion

Good Morning: I waited until this morning to see if anyone had a link to the manual.

I have the 140 Service Manual for Serial No. 30.001 - , SM-2093, but I haven't scanned it in yet. It is 274 pages, cover to cover, and based on other manuals I have scanned in, the PDF file would be almost 30M. I would probably break it up into 3 sections.

Not sure when I'll have time to do the scan this week, busy getting ready for a family reunion this weekend in Iowa. I should be able to scan it next week maybe sooner), if you can wait that long.

Harlan

P.S. I also have the parts manal, but jdparts.com covers that pretty well.

Thanks Harlan. When you get that scanned up let us know and there will probably be a few requests for it. In general we are helping each other with information whenever possible. The 140 is a model where info. is scarce. Thanks for your help.

I picked up a 140 manual the other day so if you need anything let me know & I'll try to help. I don't have a scanner but I use Mac products like IPhone so I can take picture then post it. So just send personal message of what you need.
