I've tried calling a guy about a 10' folding ladder for the last three days... no answers and no call backs. Flakes.

 

Too true. I've had both good and bad luck with Craigslist, I guess thats anything these days.

That is a nice 140 above. I hope yours turns out as well as you want it too. Side note, it is cool how many military guys that are on here. Oh, I did like the BoW comments, just told the wife about it too. -MM1(SS)

 

I hope my 140 comes out half that nice! I just want a good running worker, to mow the lawn and haul stuff around the 2.504 acres I call my farm. 

 

There do seem to be quite a few military types here, but I find that to be true on any forum that deals with hands-on hard work.

Just spent hours playing with the ignition and carb. Got the spark going smooth, with a new coil, condenser, and rewiring from the switch to the points. Now the carb won't stay adjusted. It seems that the welch plug issued that has been pointed out to me is the culprit. I can get it going smooth and steady, then suddenly she starts running really rough. Adjusting the high-speed screw waaaay out then back in fixes it for a while. I plan to get a kit ordered for the carb this week, hoping this is the last major issue till winter. 

 

Looking at the JD parts site, I see a thick spacer between the carb and engine. I don't have anything but a gasket there. Anyone know if this will cause me any issues?

I picked up that thick spacer in my rebuild kit.  Let me check my parts that will go with the carb and get back to you.  :thumbs:

Thanks, Travis! One more step down the road to yet another obsession! At least it's legal.

Things are a lot different then when I retired.  They had a few seminars when I retired, mainly VA and Survivors benefits, but it sounds like the Guard is doing a pretty good job so you can have an easier transition.    Good luck Sarge and keep us posted on your JD140 project.


I appreciate the support from this site. I just got a great job offer, it is a huge weight off my shoulders! Maybe now enough funds will shake loose to really get the old girl looking good.

That job turned out to be a bust, but more and better are on the burner.

In the GT world, fired up the 140 today and she started knocking a bit. I went to check the oil and there was pressure behind the dipstick. Started her back up and got a bunch of oil blown out in about ten seconds. Is this from a clogged or broken breather? I really hope its that simple, I love this tractor and can't afford a rebuild or repower right now.

Is the breather plugged or installed incorrectly?  Either way it would force pressure into the crankcase.  Did you grab the K Series manual from the Kohler site?

I ran into town, got all the gaskets, took the breather apart, and discovered the reed plate was on the wrong side of the spacer! Of course, I installed it upside-down, had to take it back apart. I've been dealing with chicken buyers all day, haven't had a chance to see if it's totally fixed yet.

Glad it was something so simple!  As for dealing with chicken buyers - sounds like that is for the birds!  :smilewink:

It is, but my son has to learn the ins and outs of this stuff if he plans to make a living with critters

It goes better than I deserve, Travis! Been busy with a new job, so I haven't done much with the 140. So, is your move complete?
