I pulled this out of another thread to directly address the originally poster's question:
I have the 1969 John Deere 110 lawn tractor as well. Love it. I was wondering how to adjust the deck. The front sits a little lower than I want it. When I look at it the only thing I can figure is that there are two "bolts" that hold the front of the deck up. If these are twisted one way or the other would that raise/lower the front end. They are pretty rusted and I really don't want to mess with them. There is a round 6" knob that turns both directions that I have no idea what it does, can anyone help with that one. I would read the manual but I didn't get one from the person I bought it from. Of course I'm sure it has had many owners by now. Any help would be great. Thanks Scooter
If you are sitting on the tractor there is a knob to the left of the shifter that is used to adjust the overall deck height. You can see it in the attached picture. Turn that knob clockwise to raise the deck and counterclockwise to lower the deck. If the deck is not level you would need to ajust the points on the front of the deck and the hangers under the tractor that support the desk. If the front is low and you want to raise it you would need to remove the draft plate and turn those two point clockwise to raise the front of the deck.
