Looks like it has the old style rearend with PTO. The PTO goes for STUPID money by it's self: http://www.ebay.com/...0#ht_185wt_1018

Yes, that's the original early serial no. 140.  Looks pretty well used but does look to have newish rear tires.

The only way I could tell was the rear disc brakes... how else can you tell?

Theis rear pto is unique to the first models.  The pto on the early attaches internal to the rear of the hydro, where the later models attached externally.

Thanks Daniel... now, how can I hide the $700 withdraw from the savings account?

 

As for the signs of what year it is, I remembered this post from my 140 thread:

Things to look for on the 140 to help distinguish year:

 

- Engine color (if original tins were kept) green or white in 1968, black in the 1969-1974 machines

- Disc brakes

- RF carry over steering wheel and 4-legged hear on headlight panel

- Transaxle/PTO

 

If I were to guess I would go for 1969/1970 and in the serial number range of

1969 10,001 - 22,400 Kohler K321 (14HP) 1970 22,401 - 30,000 Kohler K321 (14HP)

Daddy it's winkin' at me! 

 

I guess that means it only needs one headlight and you should buy it!  well worth the money for sure.

lol, I probably could rob the lift/pto/tiller off of it, clean it up and get my money back out of it.

 

now, who wants to bankroll me?

The whole rear end is completely different. The higher ser. no's have the Dana automotive style rear end and axle assembly which looks totally different . They used the same setup in the 300's up to the 318 where everything changed!

Right... the new Dana based set-up was moved into production with the introduction of the 120 in 1970.  (Wonder why I might know this :smilewink: )  It was phased into the 140 line in 1971.  There are some serious pieces of "unobtanium" in the pics of this thread.  Those parts would work on twostep's patio 140.

 I wasn't aware of that rear end being used in the 120. That's good to know! I don't know what the original looked like but that Dana unit is heavy duty. The axles are large diameter, maybe 30mm and it looks like a modified automotive differential. I have the axles out of my 317 right now to deal with the wheel bearings and the splines show virtually no wear even though the tractor probably has 2000 hours on it.
