Hi guys got another find , bought it over the phone sight unseen, its a 1967 jd 112 type T2316 serial # 013705, please correct me if i have the wrong year / model does not have the motor or pump what you see is what i got, they only made 2 years with the steel seat and rounded fenders 1966 & 1967 thought i would like it more but i dont, i told him i would buy it and i did no worries, after all its a jd and its old and only a 2 year run,if i had the motor it couldnt get any better. i am considering trading it as i am a wheel horse guy mainly but do have a jd 140 and a bolens gt2000 in my stable of 8 horses. i dont think the motor will be an issue a tecumseh hh100 (10 hp). would you give this tractor up or hold on to it one fellow i know says i may not run across another one, ands its not in that bad of shape, thanks for your opinions farmer john

I would have bought it! I think the hardest thing for you to find will be the hydraulic lift set up. The motor will actually be the easiest part. The grille and the guards can be found on ebay all of the time, so that won't be so bad. Every now and then, you'll find a hydraulic lift set up listed on ebay, but I'm willing to bet you'll pay more for that alone, then you did to purchase the tractor. You just have to be sure that you buy the correct set up, as the flat fendered 110's and 112's used a slightly different set up. You also have to be careful buying the correct mounting plate, as there is a difference between the Tecumseh and the Kohler head bolt patterns, along with the oil fill tube mounting.

As for the year, you are correct. It is indeed a 1967 112H. In 1966, John Deere introduced the 112 model, and only made 1,000 units that first year, just to see how they would sell. In 1967, the demand for the 112 was there, and so there were more production numbers made. The motor used in the 112's were, as you stated, an HH100, 10hp Tecumseh, horizontal shaft motor. I myself, prefer the 112's more than the 110's, which had 7 & 8hp Kohler motors. Most collectors though, don't like working with the Tecumseh motored 112's, and so in some states, aren't considered very collectable.

Wish youthe best of luck in finding the remaining pieces, and if you need any help, just ask away. We have a lot of John Deere collectors on this site, with plenty of knowledge and know how.

Take Care,
