           Well I don't have a romantic history to share with everyone about this machine, it is a recent find and we are just starting what I hope to be a long relationship. In this new world of so many cheaply made things this little tractor has earned my appreciation. I have enjoyed just looking things over and really want to get her back up to snuff now. Everything seems to be in very good shape, little to no rust mostly just dirt and oil. The paint is in very good condition and my plan now is just to clean her up real good and fix what needs fixing. I had put several pics up in the new members forum and a couple members suggested a good waxing rather than a total restoration and after looking her over real good I would have to agree. 

         

          I had gone to take a look at it but had no way of getting her home at the time. It started right up we let it run at idle for a bit and talked awhile then I finally jumped on it and ran through the gears. Everything ran out great the starter is loud and the blades would not turn at full speed but you could hear them try to engage. I put some money down and we agreed I would be back no later than 2 weeks with the balance and a trailer to get it home on. When I went back he said he had almost forgot that he had some kind of blade that goes on the front. He stated he wasn't sure how it fit as he had never put it on in the 30 years of owning the tractor. We walked over to the other barn and there was the blade, safe and sound under about an inch of dust. 

 

          Well I have it home now and started to tinker with it a bit, the engine doesn't smoke at all but turns very easy by hand. The deck was in real good shape as these are usually the first to go i'm still amazed at the condition. Two spindle assemblies seem be very sound the last one has some play in it but I haven't heard them spin yet so I can't say for sure. It looks like all the clutch adjustment has been taken up and there is very little clutch left at all. I plan on refurbishing the deck, engine and clutch now I just need some help in finding the parts as JD doesn't carry the clutch any longer. I'm in this thing right and don't mind spending a few more bucks to get it finished ( even a blind chicken gets a piece of corn once in a while ) I would appreciate any help you guys could offer :) what do we do for parts that are no longer available.

TY I just have to find the parts i'm needing :( I could live without the PTO clutch for a bit as I could make great use of it with just a cart and the blade. Every time I go outside I have to fire it up ( wife thinks i'm nuts ) but I can't help myself. I had some railroad ties laid out around an old garden spot that needed to be moved for some time now. I hate wrestling those things but with the little JD we just putted along in 2nd and with the blade I shoved them out to the drive to be hauled off.

What is the serial number of the machine?  That will help us figure out what parts you need to fix the PTO.  It should be as simple as unbolting the bad parts and installing the new one.  You will likely need to adjust the clutch and a factory service manual would be very good to have.  You can get those on ebay or from Deere.  Those 110s are pretty common so I would expect manual prices to be reasonable if you would go with used.  You will need one for machines serial number 100,001 and higher.

 

Here is a breakdown of serial numbers from WFM:

 

 

1968 100,001 - 130,000 Kohler K181

1969 130,001 - 160,000 Kohler K181
1970 160,000 - 185,000 Kohler K181
1971 185,001 - 250,000 Kohler K181
1972 250,001 - 260,000 Kohler K181
1972 260.001 - 272,000 Kohler K241 (10hp)
1973 272,001 - 285,000 Kohler K181
1973 285,001 - 310,000 Kohler K241
1974 310,001 - 320,000 Kohler K181
1974 320,001 - Kohler K241

Here are the diagrams from JDParts.com for the PTO related sections.  The part numbers are on the page if you look up the model "110"

 

As for what do you about missing parts?  I would expect it would be easy to find good, used parts as Deere made many of those 110s.

Trav1s thank you ! I don't have any missing parts and completely agree about the manual I need that for sure it is on the list of must have's. As you can see in the pics above the clutch has very little material left and the adjustment is pretty much gone and the spring is drawn down all the way. Part number AM134374 is the one I need I found a NOS on E-Bay for 200.00 The serial numbers on my machine are 188479 M

Has anyone ever had a clutch resurfaced for these older models ? Just wondering if that might be an option for some of us.
