Just acquired another 1967 110 last month, and finally got around to getting it running. The starter/generator was missing, the spark plug hole in the head was stripped out, the gas line was bad, and the wheels and tires weren't the original sizes for the tractor. The choke cable was frozen, the inspection plate was missing, the rubber lift handle and variator handle grips were being held on by electrical tape, and the seat spring was mounted on backwards. So, I installed a donor starter/generator, swapped out the whole motor with a spare that I had on the shelf, added a new gas line, and installed the correct size, narrow wheels with new tires. I also installed all of the pieces for the rear lift, added a helper spring, added the front lift rod, installed new rubber grips on both handles, added the inspection plate, replaced the choke cable, changed the seat spring around, installed a new wiring harness, changed the points and condenser, installed a new battery, and added gas with a little seafoam. To my amazement, the tractor started, but the carb leaked bad. So I pulled the carb, soaked it three days in CLR, polished it up a little, and added the new rebuild kit. 

 

Today was the first day that I had a chance to mount the carb, and after turning the key, she fired. Caleb and I ran it up and down the alleyway a couple of times, and all gears in the tranny sound good. The variable speed even works like it should. I just have to make an adjustment to the brake rod yet, and she'll be good as new. 

 

I didn't think to take pictures of it when I first got it, but here is how it looks now with the narrow wheels and new sneakers mounted:

I'm still debating whether or not to add a set of headlights, the tail light, and a cigarette lighter to it yet. Since this tractor is a double, I will most likely make this one my new workhorse now. At least for plowing snow over the winter months. I'll keep the '73 140 as my primary garden chore tractor.

Troy, she sure does look great. I'm certain the new accessories and correct parts are appreciated.

You planning on a full restore or working clothes for awhile?

That's quite a list of fixes but considering the age of the tractor it's shorter than most. Looks strong and ready to push some snow this winter.

Good looking tractor now! Glad it wasn't missing any more parts or you would have had to get up in the attic again!

Troy:

 

Looks good! I may have said this here before, but my first GT was a 110 round fender, and it was used hard on my 1.75 acre "country estate". :D

Going to use the working clothes for awhile Alan. This will be my primary snow removal tractor, so it doesn't have to be pretty! Won't be taking this one to many shows, although it would look better if all of the paint would be at least the same shade or color, huh? Maybe I can do a quick refurbish next Spring, we'll see.

Where do you think I pulled the starter/generator, narrow rims, and new tires from Kenny?  :D

Well, today we were finally able to use the tractor for snow, and wouldn't you know it, the engine doesn't have any horse power. I had the snowthrower hooked up to it, and well, let's just say I could have spit the snow further than the tractor could throw it. Without the horse power, we just weren't getting anywhere. Not to worry though, I dragged the blade out and swapped out the snowthrower for it. Still doesn't do that great, but it worked. Caleb has been asking to learn how to plow, so this year was his chance. I put him behind the wheel and told him to give it a try. He actually did pretty good for his first time. His only problem was lifting the plow while approaching the snow banks, but he'll eventually get it down.

Hey, nice job Caleb. Looks like you're going to be taking over snow duty soon.
Don't worry about the low HP situation, someday Dad will bring home a Red tractor and all will be fine :poke:

(I am ducking now)

BTW, I think I might of seen that plow somewhere before?

That third picture is interesting.

Troy has the shovel and Caleb has the tractor.  If we get everything that is forcast for this week, that might get switched to dad being on the tractor. And why are they calling for snow almost every day next week.
