  Just a update on the 318 i bought last week, After taking the battery out to check the starter selinoid, i tried to move the drive shaft,(just in case the motor has seized) and it would not move. i used a screw driver in the universal joint and barly put any pressure on it and it moved. I put the battery back in and it started right up ( and not evan any smoke) it is a very quite engine.......So i was looking on craiglist Saturday morning and found a John Deere 318 for $800.00, i texted him to offer him 500 and he said he would take 600. i goy busy for about an hour and didn't tell him i would take it. i was getting ready to call him back to get directions and he sent me another text said if i come get it now he would take 500. So i drove south about an hour and picked up a running 318 with ag tires and 2 sets of wheel weights. my son and drove back home, dropped of my wife and drove north about 1 hour and 1/2 and picked up a 1973 110 for $200.00. his came with a extra hood and extra wheels and tire. So in i week we got 2 JD 318 and 1 110 for $950.00. This is getting fun. I must say those 318's are beasts, i love it.

I think you have done well.  I like the deals you've found, we must think alike!

 

Maybe your B's won't feel so lonely now.

You know york, i had seen that on Craigs list Sat. morning and though it was a miss print so a little later I went back to attempt to locate it and it was gone, and the neck of it is, it was just down the street ( figure of speach) from me-next town over.

 

Well I guess I will have to say congradulations on the purchses.

 

Just thinking-what can one man do with two 318's that run and look good!!!!
