:D I found a big mouse nest in my hydro fan housing. I got out the pressure washer yesterday and blasted everything clean, looks much better now.

 

ETA: check your petcock, i found out tonight that mine was busted after it spewed 3 gallons of gas all over my garage floor! -----Sooooo close, yet so far. :wallbanging:

I will be sure to check the shut-off valve on the tank before I bolt it together.  The old line was very hard and I could not get it off the fuel pump and shut-off valve without cutting it off.  I have new fuel line from NAPA in its place too.

Just ordered the yoke and petcock from Deere.  Looks like I need to get to work on the carb so it is rebuilt before the parts are here.

My garage is especially bad with the 120 and 314 as well as the parts from two 1968 Plymouth Furys lurking around.  It looks like the master of disaster has take up residence in there... :bigrofl:

looks good and like you are tearing it to that thing pretty well.  drive shafts are a pain.  just did mine a few months back and it only took about an hour and  a half to pull the engine and put it back together, only tough part was the pin that holds the shaft on the hydro side for me.  it was stuck in there pretty good.  good luck!

Finally got some garage time today.  I finished the fuel system with new hose, a fuel filter, shut-off valve and carb rebuild.  It it not initially fire when I hit the key because I got lazy and did not gap the points.  So with my finely calibrated eye I set the gap and gave it a try.  We have fuel and fire!!!!   Now to get the high side and low idle fine-tuned.  Definitely shakes a bunch at low idle... which is too low.

Here are pics of the seat and fender pan after simple green and a brush. Looks better than I expected.

Good Job! How'd it run? Looks like we're in a race or something! :beerchug:

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. :rolling:

 

 

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. :dancingbanana:  This would be a perfect worker with a bit of real-life patina. :smilewink:

I use a bit of MMO in the oil to help with carbon and stuck rings. Helps clean out the crankcase, too.

Their site recommends 10% to 25%. I wouldn't use the 25% for a long time in there, myself. But 10% would be good if you want to run it for several weeks I would think.
