I am wrapping up my mf 12h and was looking at classifieds for another project.  I found this John Deere 112.  I do not know much about them.  Does this have a 10hp kohler?  What about the transmition?  I copied the add and placed it below with some pics.  Are parts fairley easy to get a hold of?  Does anyone know the range of years this one is in?  What type of things should I look for with this model?  He is asking $175.  I assume that is probably a fair price.

 

John Deere 112, garden tractor. For sale John Deere 112 or want to buy parts John Deere garden tractor. John Deere garden tractors from the mid-80s and older may fill my needs. Mine is missing the carburetor, starter and some small parts (bolts and the like). I can turn the engine over by hand. The hood is broken loose at the hinge points, however it is all there and very repairable. It comes with a mower deck, but I have not attempted to install it, the mower deck is in very poor condition.

It is a Tecumseh. And one of the big things I know to look for (not a big john deere man) is the hubs. There splined axles and with age they get wear and some times wont stay tight.

Not having the ID number to go by, I'm going to say that this is a 1968 Side Tag 110-112 with either a Tecumseh HH-80 or HH100. The biggest issue with the TEC. engines is if the Electronic Ignition is bad, it will be expensive to repair or replace. I would say it's still worth the asking price sense it's an early 68 model.

Price is good. The Tecumseh HH100 was the original engine offered in the John Deere 112. It was used through 1972. There was a Kohler 10 horse option available in 1969. The Kohler 12 horse was used 1972 through end of production.

 

I have a 1969 110 & 112. These are very heavy duty machines that can still do hard work.

I agree with Brian (Texas Deere and Horse). I also believe it's an early '68 112. No serial plate under the steering wheel, smooth fender above the foot rests, and the larger diameter steering wheel center. For $175.00, I'd buy it. The headlight bezel, rear tail lights, and PTO shield are easily gotten through our site supporters or ebay. 

 

Good luck to you, and have fun. If you have questions or need help, feel free to ask away!

I am giving $200 for a pretty complete (missing a spindle and tire) side tag 110 that I will pick up this week. Some say that is a bit high but the unique early '68 parts are there.  Good luck on the purchase.

Right... those are really big clues to age.  Also, the following items are clues to me:

- cast clutch/brake pedal

- transaxle fill tube below fender pan below the seat (this is a 1968 thing)

 

Other pluses to my eyes:

- original seat pan in place and looks to be in decent condition (and a perfect place for a Hapcoparts.com reproduction seat)

- reproduction hoods are available if this one is beyond repairs (it is likely repairable)

- Tires look good

- The missing parts are easily found (as others have said)

The guy ended up buying another tractor and was going to use this one for parts.  So i gave him my contact info and told him if he changes his mind let me know.  He ended up contacting me yesterday and he decided it was to nice to part out.  I will be going and picking it up tomorrow. :dancingbanana:

Serials started at 100,000 for 1968. That is the 2916th machine produced in the 1968 model year. Congrats
