sorry pictures - got to get a different camera


the 112 is a 69 with a Tecumseh, no deck - got several

it needs a lot of work - but I should most of the past

the motor fills like if has good compress

this is the first Deere I got with Tecumseh in it ( so am going to learn about Tecumseh)

I do have a Kohler 12 hp with Hydraulic lift I might use if I have problem with the Tecumseh

I would like to use it for a 72 -74 112 - have not found one but still looking


also got a cab for the 100 series Deere - no doors or front cover

got it taken apart so the it can be cleaned and paint removed

glass is good

having no doors or front cover - that is okay

for the front cover I will make a metal cover for using heating duct work ( the rectangular duck )

will have to make the doors too using sheet metal and plexaglass


and got an old EZ-Rake thatcher wirh a 3hp B&S 

I can use it for parts for mine other one that has the 5 hp B&S on it

or see if I can make it a front mount for one of my Deeres

I have seen picture of them a Deere - now to figure out the pulley size to get the right speed for it

the B&S have a reducer gear box on them - I think they are 6:1 gear ratio


got all 3 for $200

Congrats!  Are you going for one of every year produced between 1968 an 1974?

This is the Tecumseh info I know - the carb main jet is more valuable than gold.  A quick search on WFM will give you lots of info on the Tecumseh engines.

Sounds like a nice tractor Lyall. I hope you will post some pics of the 112 when you get a chance.
