Well, just got home from picking up the new to me '73 110 with 37 thrower and 39 mower deck. It came with an extra engine block (not sure of it's condition yet), assorted parts and operator's manuals (original) for the tractor, thrower and mower.

 

I bought it from the second owner who says he's had it stored up in his garage for 4-5 years.......don't know if that holds water or not. She's taken on some paint over the course of her life and she's limping right now. I don't plan on restoring her so am planning on finding her a good home (in one piece) or in parts (only to good homes though :D ).

 

Now for the final analysis......what's the going rate in your neck of the woods for this set up as is? Just curious. Thanks.

Congrats.   I would begin with a carb clean and rebuild, clean out the fuel tank and add fresh fuel, and a tune up with new points, condensor and a plug.

 

The extra engine looks like a K181 and the tractor is running a k241.  Similar in design but parts don't interchange.  

 

That is indeed a late machine with the PTO on the dash like the 200 series machines.  A solid running machine like that will fetch $400 with a solid deck out here.  Not much more as everyone wants the round fender machines.

Congrats! Nice looking JD!

I know every time I see one around here in that condition there always $500 or more!

Well, I posted the tractor yesterday on Craigslist and already have some bites. Not sure if any will pan out but wanted to say thanks for your feedback.

A bracket came with the lot that I purchased this past Sunday and I need some help identifying it's purpose. It appears to be a mounting bracket for a 31 rototiller yet it does not look large enough compared to the ones I've seen online. Thanks for your help.

Well, the tractor and attachments SOLD yesterday. I made a little money (to support the hobby) and I still have a steering wheel (the guy had an extra so he let me keep it and it's now going to Travis to replace the one he had to cut off his Deere) and all original manuals (I hope to relocate them also to good homes). It was definitely a learning experience for me.

 

A special thanks goes out to Troy for all the behind the scenes (PM) help.

 

I ended up replacing the plug, doing some re-wiring (as the PO had spliced many wires with black tape) and cleaned up all the electrical connections. In the end, I didn't get her to fire up but at least to turn over. I'm guessing that either my coil was bad or the points needed replacing (just as Travis pointed out).

 

Three great things I got out of this deal:

 

1) a large clear space in the garage....cause I had to clean the garage to fit the new tractor in it last week

2) CONFIDENCE......tearing into my tractors has always been daunting for me since I'm not terribly experienced I figured I'd take it apart and not get her back together BUT with this project I wasn't worried since if I screwed something up I was out nothing. You know those "How Things Work" videos? Well, that's what I did with this Deere.

3) I gathered up a new friend (Travis) and was able to supply him with a much needed steering wheel

 

Thanks again to all who helped. As dad said, I now have a little seed money for the next project.

Matthew, 

 

What serial range do those manuals cover?  I am looking to pick up an early '68 110 (serial number 100,4xx) and they would help with the project.
