Non running, at the moment, but motor is free, po said she mowed with it up until 2 years ago.  Looks to be mostly all there.  Serial number gives it a 1966 born on date.  Tires were replaced, but are in real good shape.  I will find time one of these days to work on it.

Looks like it's original other than the tires. Very nice!

I guess someone repainted it?  That's a nice straight machine.

Ok, so I could not leave a new tractor alone. I wanted to see if the 8hp kohler was going to fire or not.  First, I pulled the spark plug and gave several squirts of fogging oil down the hole, and let that sit.  After a while, I gave it several more squirts, I then took off the flywheel screen and slowly turned the flywheel  by hand, so as to loosen/lubricate the piston and valves and rings.  gave the spark plug hole a few more shots and left it alone again.  I came back to it later, added some gas, put the spark plug back, hooked up  a battery, turned on the key, no start.  I hooked up a volt meter, no 12v at the coil.  So I sanded the points a little, changed the coil and condensor with another known good set,ran a separate wire from the battery to the coil, got out the jumper cables, hit the starter/generator straight from the battery.  She fired!  So then I put it all back together and I rolled the tractor back into the garage.  I got a hundred other projects pending.  I am working out of town for the next several months and am only home on the weekends, so I am kinda pressed for time.  This r f 110 will make a great winter project.

 

I bought this gt from the niece of the original owner.  She had both of the JD manuals for it too....the 38 rotary mower and the one for the tractor.  Sweet!

I really like  page 3 in the tractor manual.  100_9689.jpg

As much as I love the other machines the RF's have a special vibe of their own that I love.  Congrats!
