Spring would not retract the arm into the groove to lock it at different settings, it would just come out and go side ways and not latch, Grandpa had it made to go full up with the handle locking into a piece of angle iron. I ordered a new arm and mechanism used on ebay

Right rear axle leaked fluid when I had the tractor jacked up on one side, I guess I will need a new seal

 

New used manual lift is on its way , from a Deere scrap parts yard, he says its in good shape and works, lets hope so. I also ordered some other parts from him, he has all kinds of other models, not too many 110's, nice guy knowledgeable on how to fix the tractors and friendly and gave me good advice.  "Roy Parker" ;kparker at stny dot com

 

Roy found the parking brake spring for me, the mower deck arm and pin, the PTO cover mounting brackets and the fender shock absorbers, plus the 11o manual lift assy

I will send you an email with details but I simply used a razor blade to remove the decals and then used a decal adhesive remove from Napa (forget the brand).  It was pretty straight forward.

Anyone know the John Deere part number for the belt that goes from the tractor PTO to the mower deck?

Here is a great reference tool that will help you figure out all the various part numbers.  Go to www.jdparts.com, select Parts catalog search then  search for your model number "110" and select serial numbers 100,001 and up. I Found this number under the attachment section for tractors up to serial number 176558 = M45998

The JD guy yesterday gave me that same number but he said he needed to know the mower deck size? 42-48- or 54 I was think why did that matter
