Worked a bit on the front edge of the hood on Monday.  Someone tried to patch the crack with JBWeld and it did not work.  I ended up using a utility knife to be remove the JB on the top side.  The back side turned out to be more of a challenge - I used a wire wheel to work the JB out of the fibers of the 'glass.  It opened up the gap a bit but I think I can repair it without much problem.  I know I can get the top side looking good but not so sure of my skills on the back side.  If I screw it up I can order a new one for it.

Looks like fun, wish you were closer I would help you, remember that breather on the engine, mine the seals were bad and that little scotch brite breather was stopped up causing oil leak etc.

Got the 110 home tonight and I am going to try to get it running for now. I still want to go thru it but if someone wants it when it is running then I will sell it. The real reason for selling is this: My wife is pregnant and this is a surprise to us.

Is your lift arm working good?, mine was one the hardest things Ive ever done changing that, and I had the fender off and the center console!!

Lift arm seems to be OK on this one.  I have not messed with it too much.

Worked on the hood in prep for fiberglass work. Got the rf decals and adhesive removed. Also wet sanded the top surface with 180 grit paper. Time to break out the fiberglass repair kit. I am also redoing the 312 hood at the same time.

This one is pretty good.  I will approach it the same way as the hood on the 120.  The hood for the 312 will be more of a challenge as there is some damage that was poorly repaired in the past.  That is another project for an other thread.

Getting the hood ready for fiberglass repairs today and following the same steps I used on the 120 hood. I used a light coat hanger to hold the front edge of the hood together and hope to do some repairs later today as times allow.

Finally got the steering box/column out but not without challenges.  Me thinks it was replaced with a complete unit as you can still see the Deere sticker in place under the tape.  More pics later.

It seems that water got in the column and there is a fair amount of rust inside.  I guess the good thing is that the screw in the bottom of the box is good.  I guess this is not a surprise considering it sat outside unattended for 5 or more years.
