Well a deal came up and I went for it. Someone had interest in my '67 112. The offer was a 140 h1 for my 112. I've always wanted a hydro tractor. So I figured I will find another RF down the road and went for it. It needs points , plug, and condenser. Oh and new hydro fluid considering while unloading it I managed to put a hole in the filter underneath (don't ask). I can't wait to start equipping this thing. First thing on the agenda is a 3 spool valve and a 3 pt. Then I will have a tractor for both styles of attachments. Make swap meets easier. It also has some great ags on the back and dual brakes! Here are some pics.uploadfromtaptalk1357954462763.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1357954483402.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1357954498259.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1357954518025.jpg Oh and the sad part is I really miss my 112. Oh well I will find another. Eric Sent from my SPH-D700 using Tapatalk 2

I have limited knowledge on these things. I understand the hydraulics. Is there anyone that can PM me with some related material to help with a few things. The deck height adjustment is different than my 100/200 series. Also how do I get this thing in freewheel. No freewheel had a hand in the filter getting punctured. The fender tag is tough to read. I understand what the levers on the side do. The brakes are pretty straight forward. It has a lighter on it. The lights don't work either. Thanks! Eric Sent from my SPH-D700 using Tapatalk 2

Maybe there are some Manuals here on site to download and print out for that tractor.  Sounds diff enough you should get one or two! Owner's and Parts.

never had a 140, but my x475 has a lever on the side of the trans. to release the pressure and allow it to freewheel.

The knob under the seat, or right in front of the seat. Turn it down or clock wise and it will release the valve and let it free wheel around.

Looks like a very capable machine. Do you already have a line on the add-ons/upgrades? I bet they are in demand.

I've seen a few 3 spool valves for a fair price. The 3 point is another story. It is a little harder to find. I'm actually contemplating making my own. The ones I have found were way to high. I just need to locate some good pictures. The hardest thing about the 3 point is lifting it. The rest is fairly simple. Eric Sent from my SPH-D700 using Tapatalk 2

I have a set of drawings on PDF for the 3-Point for the 140. It is also for the 300.
