Will the 140 H1 body pan fit on the 140 H3 tractor?
They look like the same style and shape.
Thanks, Dave.

Welcome to GTtalk. Yes the fender pans are the same. Post some photos of your 140 if you can.

The only thing to watch out for is this:  Some of the late 140H1 machines shared fender pans with the 120s.  Those pans did not have a cut-out on the back.  You can see it what I am talking about on my 120:

Hello Dave and welcome to GTT.

 

I think, you are looking for the fender deck. In JDPC you'll find this three decks

The seat adjustment is different as well. The early models (1968-1970) have a wire pull to adjust the seat front and back, as the later models (1971-1974) have a side lever adjustment. I think the very early models have the hydro release located under the seat, whereas the later models have the release located in front of the seat.

A switch was made to a different Hydro / rearend at the 30000 ser. no. point. If you don't want to use a 3 point hitch then the lack of a notch in the back won't be an issue. I'm wondering if the early 300 series fender deck would fit a 140? Anyone know the answer.

Hello all and thanks for the welcome and information. The reason I was asking about the H1 & H3 Body Pan is I found a H1 at a reasonable price and it is in better condition than my H3. I was thinking about swapping parts out, body pan, seat and wheels. Enjoy the site and I will try to get a picture posted soon.
Thanks again to all who responded to my post, Dave.

Another thing to consider - you could swap over the H-3 parts to the H-1.  The catch is that there are difference between the early transaxle and late style transaxle.  The break is 30,001 and up for the late style transaxle.

JD, The early 300 series are different because JD moved the gas tank under the seat.

Actually, I am wondering this too. There are several pictures of 140s with under tank seats. I am curious about how this is done. I have a seat pan in pretty bad shape and was wondering if this would be an option that I could look into along with a repower I am planning on doing on the same tractor.
