Let me do some more digging into it and see what else I find.  The dental tools are a great suggestion.  Thank you.

 

The deck looks solid and without holes.  Not sure on the bearings...  I do have about 8 extras that I can rebuild.

At the local sale with the 4 Patio 110s I picked up the following items:

- original green seat pan and seat (needs welded but very nice)

- draft plate (the plate on the 110 was trashed)

- front pivot and correct 1968 style tube linkage and pivot for a blade

 

I will get some pics later.  The new Hapco seats are to be shipped soon so another piece for the tractor will be arriving.

How did the sale go?

what did the patios go for?

 

Patios sold as follows:

Three (Blue, red and orange) @ $6700, yellow @ $5950   The Yellow tractor did not have the correct seat pan for a patio tractor.

  :watch_over_fence:

 

I did catch up with a couple WFM guys who were there too.  We all had our eyes on the same stuff and both got what we needed/wanted.

Let me know if you have to repack that axle, mine developed a drip when I had it jacked up to that side during restoration. Im hoping it will go away when I change the fluid and operate it.

Got a few parts from Lyall installed. It does not look as sad. I am surprised the steering gearbox is free and turns easy.  It is now a roller so I can easily get it off of the trailer.  

At least you got a PTO cover on it

If you have the extended PTO this is the right one like mone

Here it sits.  It seems the extra transaxle weights less than the k181 I picked up.  Whodathunkit!

Was the gas tank empty? I hope so, Mine has been the cause of all my carp problems. Took forever to get that crude oil and rust out of the tank

Nope... full of gas.  :(  I went round and round with the 120 when I got it.  Three carb rebuilds but I did not soak it in carb dip.  Eventually just swapped carbs and the problem was solved.  :smilewink:

I hope to get working on the 110 next month when the move into our house is complete.  Doing a few things before we move in.

A bit of an update on the 110 - I ran out and picked up a load of parts from cold storage and brought them to the house to begin clean-up and prep for paint.  I also have a Carter N carb that will go on it (Thx Lyall) that will get cleaned and rebuilt.  I realized I have 3 seat pans (one was original to my 120, one was off another early flat fender and a 3rd that I picked up) which are getting harder to find.  I will hit a few of those parts with the wire wheel and get ready for primer.

Don't mean to throw everyone off topic but i have a question for you JD guys,

 

The muffler for the 110 and 112 (not round fender ones) had the Nelson muffler pictured below, the part number was AM30280, when i googled the part number a rounded end with raised seam muffler popped up, i sighned on to JD's main webpage and looked, only the rounded end one showed.

My questions are what happened to the real Nelson ''roll-welded'' muffler and why is JD using the old number for what looks to be a cheap aftermarket muffler ?

 

I tried googling a old muffler number AM30049 and nothing came up, i think that number is for the first one with the rounded ends and single weld seam in the center but could you guys conferm.

 

The reason i am interested in the Nelson roll welded one (or ''crimped'' ends) is it is more or less the same size as the repo Nelson can muffler currently being reproduced for Simplicity large frame tractors but the JD muffler exits from the end of the muffler instead of the side that Simplicty had.

 

Edit : sorry, i ment the round fender ones, typo error.
