Well, my pap asked me what I wanted for Christmas about 2 weeks ago. I sent him a link and one thing led to another and at about 11:45ish AM Pap and I loaded up into the truck and headed up to Hershey! We got there around 2:08 PM and met Keith. (Member on MyTractorForum, We only almost died once...) We got everything loaded up and were on our way. (After getting a quick peek at his very nice collection of garden tractors... fing32.gif) We made it back to Bedford by 4:30. We unloaded it and went out to eat. Once we got back I made a bee-line straight for the garage where I keep my spare battery (knew this would come in handy. trink40.gif), put it in it and it started with less than 1/4 a crank but quickly died (forgot the choke...). Tried to crank it again, but the battery didn't have enough juice for another go so the 140 got awoken to lend a hand. About 5 min. of charging later, ITS ALIVE!!! This thing will go through 6" of snow without weights or chains and my 130lb frame on it. Got to love old iron. This 110 has the K181 (Smokes, probably needs rings) and one of the tightest 4-spds I have ever had the privilege of owning. Keith is a very wonderful man, and did not hide anything about it. I look forward to seeing him in the future. thanku.gif Here are some teaser pics until it gets lighter out.

Thanks, it was blasted and powered.  It has a LOT of rust pitting, but is very solid and came with a bunch of new stuff.  It only cost me $20 on top of the price of the tractor.

 

 

Thanks guys.  I want to find an integral hitch for PA Plow Day.

I don't restore machines yet.  I love the patina.  Just making them complete, decking them out, and using them.
