Because I have a lot of confessions to make.

 

I'll start confessing here.  Look what I did to the beauty of my yard:

It hasn't run in about 20 years, but that will change.  It sports a Kohler, for crying out loud.  You can't destroy them except by doing something really stupid. 

 

It is a 1967.  Not being an established green Kool-Aid drinker, I doubt if I will be holding on to it, but who knows what will happen once I drive it. 

 

Right now, all I know is that it won't roll because the rear end is locked up.  A Farmall tractor pulling a JD tractor looks really good, folks.  :wave:

 

It has a crack in the front hood, and a nice collection of lichen off both sides.  But it'll get over it.  IMG_9392.JPG

 

My only question is what doohicky is this contraption hanging off the front?

Whoa Ben,

Are you feeling OK? Didn't bump your head or anything.  :smilewink:  :smilewink:

By the way, nice looking tractor.

You did just fine Ben. and I'm glad you got it!  :thumbs:

 

The thing in the front is actually an adapter mount so you can mount a newer flat fender blade to these older tractors. You can also mount the newer flat fender weight bracket to this adapter. 

 

As far as I can tell, the only things you need for parts is the PTO cover and a correct muffler. The muffler can be bought through one of our sponsors, Hapco, and the PTO cover can be found on ebay. Hope you can get a chance to enjoy it a little before you decide to sell it. Who knows, by the time you decide to part with it, I may be able to take it off you hands. What's adding one more to the collection gonna hurt?

You can always offer it up as a burnt offering to the gods of real tractors.

Is that adaptor a real Deere attachment, Troy?  It sure doesn't look like Deere quality to me. 

 

I guess I will enjoy it.  I always like the variable speed tractors, they are a lot of fun to play with.

 

I'll keep you in mind, but be prepared to come quick.  Green fever might infect me and I might die.  And that wouldn't be good.

You're invited to the cookout.  :rocker2:

Yes, that attachment was a factory dealership option. If you use it for a flat fender blade, you'll need a different lift rod than what was standard for the round fenders. It's a little longer than the round fender lift rod, and has a triangle piece of steel welded on the end of it.

There's more here to the story, anyway. 

 

I bought it from a guy whose place is buried far back in George Washington National Forest.  I was renting him a mini excavator, and I just happened to see a little 110 parked next to his house.  We chatted about it, and I tried to get a package deal out of him for this little turkey and a JD H with original factory electric start.  I really wanted that H.  I still want that H.  And I will get that H yet.  :wave:

 

The 110 was up on blocks.  He had bought it for his son for his son to play with back years ago.  After his son was done with it, there she sits. 

 

He shot me a price that was double what I would even consider paying for it.  I shot him a price that was lower than I would probably spend.  We both acted like horse traders and pretended like neither one of us would survive the night if it was any other way than what we wanted. Its not fun unless that happens, anyway. We finally agreed on a ballpark figure and I said I would think about it. I also wanted the serial off of it to date it. 

 

The next day I picked up the mini.  Since a mini is the best tractor rescue tool they make, I decided I was going to make a deal on the tractor while the rescuing was good.  After the handshaking was over, I got the mini in position to pull the tractor.  Except pulling wasn't going to work here.  One front wheel tie rod falls off, and the transmission turned out to be locked up.  The other front wheel was flat. 

 

So I said "Heck with that."

 

I got another strap from the truck and the tractor was air borne.  Mini excavators are great tools.  I think I need one here at my shop all the time.  :thumbs:

I believe all 200 series and the gear drive 100 series rear ends will work as a replacement or for parts. I sold a sf 110 rear end to a guy and he put it in a rf 110 tractor. Glad to see you are going GREEN!!!!

When your boss is going to sell a mini you should look into buying it. Pick one that you know isn't trashed. The right tool makes life easier and safer. Good Luck, Rick

Ben, I would post a longer reply here...
But my momma told me

Just kidding, looks like a nice 110.
Parts for the rear end should be findable. It's a peerless, isn't it?

:toilethead:

 

I feel like I ought to be embarrassed.  I think I've ruined my sterling reputation.  If I had one to begin with.

 

Actually, its time to come out of the closet.  I've been a Deere owner for about a year now.

Ben, if you see a couple of goons with no necks and wearing Italians suits dragging their knuckles up your front sidewalk; be advised their there to collect your membership card. 'Nuff said!
