Looking good! But what I really like is your saw horses made our of old iron fence posts, at least that's what they look like. I pounded in more than my share of them back in my youth on the Iowa farm where I grew up.

Harlan

That's exactly what they are, some old light weight posts!  Work good for welding & the nubs hold parts up a bit for painting.

Had some paint chips in one of the side panels, so it got sanded down & painted with the footrests:  HPIM1521.JPG

 

Engine housing & replacement muffler were painted today:  HPIM1520.JPG  HPIM1522.JPG

 

And, started putting it all back together:  HPIM1523.JPG

 

Just hope I can remember where everything goes!   :wallbanging:

Quick question for you Lowell. I see you primed your muffler, and I'm assuming you'll be painting it with high heat black. Do you always prime you mufflers before using the high heat? I used to do the same thing, but eventually the black started flaking off. I found that the primer wasn't made for high heat temperatures, and if I just used the high heat paint directly, I never had flaking problems since. Just something to think about if you didn't already know it. 

 

The 100 is coming along good. Looking forward to seeing the final results.

No, I didn't use primer, just cleaned it up with a wire wheel then 3 coats of Rustoleum " High Heat Flat Black".

Nice progress! I bought a little John Deere 111 last fall, got it for $50 but the electric pto clutch don't work and the deck is messed up. VERY solidly built little lawn tractor compared to other LT's I've had. I'd imagine you have a 10hp Briggs? The 111 is probably the same as a 110 with an 11 horse. Also mine has no side louvers, sides are open.

Have the grip for the lift lever & steering sector bearing kit on order. Along with a fuel shut-off that "departed Denver sorting facility at 3:45 Feb 10", according to USPS tracking!

Lowell, You certainly are doing a nice job on the 100. It is going to look great when you get her done.

 

What transaxle do those use?

Finishing up the 100 today:  HPIM1526.JPG

 

I have the grip for the lift lever & some sand tread tape ordered for the footrests.  Brought the deck up from the back shed to put on this afternoon.

The grip for the lift lever came in the mail today, so it's on.  Put the deck on after dinner:  HPIM1530.JPG  HPIM1531.JPG  HPIM1532.JPG

 

It's now under cover in the back shed until spring!

 

It will spend  quite a bit of time riding in the 22B cart during show season this summer:  HPIM3053.JPG
