Finally got the dash off so I can see more of the mower engagement assembly.

Doesn't look that bad under the dash mine was worse and yours was outside in the tractor lot. I also see the mower deck belt looks the same

It is in pretty decent shape - better than I expected considering it sat outside for years with the hood removed. I am going to see if someone will sandblast the pedestal, fender pan, and hood supports for me. I will hit the other stuff with the wire wheel. Got the decals off of the dash last night too.

Travis, As nice as the 120 turned out and with all you learned doing it, I can't wait to see you restore this 110.

Thanks!  I want to do this one in base/clear, at least the hood, fender pan, and seat pan but will have to see how things play out.

Back from the lost threads...

I finally managed to snag a JD service manual for 110/112 tractors 100,001 - 250,000 for a reasonable price.  It arrived today and will be very helpful as I go a bit deeper in the teardown.

Here are a few pics of the manual.  It really is in great condition and has lots of life in it. I hope to use it to figure out the original Magneto ignition system on it.

Still in the great holding pattern as I work on the 312... I figure that time and $ put in the 312 will serve me better than the 110.  The 312 is going be used to blow snow in the winter with the 49 blower.  Considering my first 2 winters back In Iowa that is a wise decision.

Holy cow...

Almost a year so an update is appropriate but past due:

The 110 has been hiding in the garage due to cold weather and lack of time. This morning I managed to do a bit of work on it in the name of maximizing space. I removed the engine from the frame and will take some time to clean it up and repaint it. I am 99% sure it was short blocked sometime in the 80s or 90s as the block is black and is NOT green under the black. It has good compression so I am going to take a chance on it. The frame is now sitting on end in the corner and gives me more room in the garage for my Jeep.

The other thing I noticed is that the under side of the frame is in really nice condition with original paint.  I am going to power wash it and see how it looks.

If you don't want to chance the motor, use the one on the wall in the last pic.......

Yeah... 4.25" bore with 3.375" stroke x 8 might be a bit much for a 110.

Additional work this afternoon included removing the mower deck (which seems to be pretty solid) and messing around the k181 in the tractor.  I pulled the head and there is minimal carbon, the head gasket looks relatively news, and the found piston is free, valves move and little to no ridge in cylinder wall!!  I really want to try to start it but the wiring harness is a MESS.  I will order a new ignition switch/wiring harness and rebuild the carb before I try to fire it up.

 

I forgot that I had the head off of it.  Looking back on the pics I am good with running this engine as is.  I wish we were getting a week of temps in the 40s instead of more snow but that is expected in Iowa in February.
