Well I recently picked this up and thought I would share, I also have a few questions. Here is a video of it running after I changed the plug it fired up right away! The tiller also works fine.

The tiller doesn't have a tag, is it a model 31 tiller?

Here are some pics too. Going with advice from johndeereelfman I drained the engine and transmission last night. When I pulled the plug on the transmission about a pint of water came pouring out! Then the sludge that followed was so thick and gritty. I then filled it with diesel, drove about 40 feet and returned to the same position of the garage and drained that - again way dirty and then filled with 80w90 gear oil.

 

Then I drained the engine, added some diesel, removed the spark plug lead, cranked a few times and drained. I then added a little oil, cranked and drained until it was nice and clear. Then I filled her up!

 

Here are my questions:

 

Does anyone recommend a better way to drain the engine oil rather than letting it spill down the front axle and dirty it up?

 

In the k181 manual it says to "shoulder" the dip stick when checking the oil. The dipstick is a threaded type. What does that mean?

Is the engine oil drain a plug or a brass valve?

On the dipstick, there is a seal there. If you just set the dipstick in the tube, it isn't seated all the way. Not pushing it in all the way is what I think that means.

The drain is a threaded plug and the dip stick is threaded too.

Since it's threaded, 'shouldered' means set in, but not threaded in.

Since it's threaded, 'shouldered' means set in, but not threaded in.

So just to be sure, set it as it's about to be threaded but don't thread it down? That's what I thought it was and did last night when checking.

I also have a 64 110, and haven't been able to figure out a good way to change the engine without making a mess, i though about putting a male nipple into the block then a female nipple onto that, then a plug in the end, but then the grill is in the way, thats as far as i got in the process.

Spencer and Chris, 

 

When draining the engine oil, park the rear wheels up on 4x4 blocks, and place a small funnel under the drain tube, just so the edge of the funnel is wedged between the frame and the drain tube. The blocks will help arch the oil out and away from the tractor frame, and the funnel will catch the remaining drips from running down over the front of the frame. 

 

Also Spencer, 

 

If you lift the leveling flap of the tiller, you should find the serial plate riveted to the tine shroud, between the hinges of the leveler flap. If the tiller is original to the tractor year, then it is indeed a Model 30 tiller. 

 

As for the dipstick, I always turn my threaded dipsticks all the way in when checking oil level. By not threading it in all of the way, you are not getting an accurate reading, as the dipstick threads into the block almost 3/8" to a 1/2" more depth.

Troy you have me wondering, my tractor only has a threaded plug into to the block, no tube, i know it's not the original engine seeing that is has a push in dipstick and not a threaded one,  but i would thought they would have transferred a drain tube,

Chris, your engine could very well be original to the tractor. Only some of the very early '64 110's had the screw in type dipstick, not all of them. As for the drain plug, no it should have a tube extending the plug out almost even with the edge of the tractor frame. No wonder you're having troubles! I think the tube length is about 2 1/2 to 3 inches long.

I just found a 37A snowblower locally - would it fit on my 64?

 

Sad news, it won't:(
