Good Job! How'd it run? Looks like we're in a race or something!
Runs pretty good considering I have not fine-tuned the carb, replaced the plug, or set the gap on the points. The more I spend time with it the more I believe it was long-blocked in the spring of 98. I think it will run smoother and smoke less once all that is done. I put a bit of ATF in the combustion chamber a week ago. That is an old school trick to free stuck rings and reduce carbon in the combustion chamber. I will give it a dose of Seafoam when I put it to work.
Here is the 2nd start-up hosted instead of attached as a mov file:
As I was poking around doing the repairs I definitely see the roots of the 300 series in the 120/140's. I have mentioned this before but to repeat it again - The size difference was also a big surprise to me. I am happy with the smaller size of the 120 for what I do and don't regret my choice. I could change my mind when I put the 314 to work.
Glad it fired up for you. Parts look nice all cleaned up!
The seat is in excellent condition and will stay with me if the tractor finds a new home. I know where there is a parts 112 sitting in town. The paint is definitely oxidized but still green. This would be a perfect worker with a bit of real-life patina.
