The top right picture in my last post of pictures is of the dump cylinder. It's the worst of all of the cylinders. Pretty sure it won't be salvageable and will need to have a new rod machined. You are correct though Brian, for the most part, the loader really isn't in that bad of shape. The bucket is bent in the one corner, but I think if I add heat to it, it can be straighten out. Should be an interesting project nonetheless.

As with all the projects  I've seen you do , this one will probably turn out like the rest. Beautifully restored and correct as possible. Great find, and good luck with the restore. I'll be following that.  

Don't forget you only have one month to get a tractor ready for plow day!   :poke:  I pulled mine in the garage today to get started.

Troy,
That's a nice find. Can't wait to see it in action. Shame you can't keep them together, but understand why not.

Yes Alan, I hate to break them apart as well, however I have another '66 110 that would be willing to step up to the plate and take on this loader. At least the replacement 110 will be of the same year as the old one, so I guess the set won't be broken too bad.

As stated, this loader 110 should have 6-12 bar treads on the rear, but have been replaced with 23x8.50-12 rears at some point. The fronts on this tractor are the originals, but as you can see, are very worn and bad. The replacement '66 110 that I'll more than likely use, also has a narrow wheel package all the way around, however the fronts will be a studded or sometimes called a traction tire, on the front. The studded front tires I think would have actually worked better for biting into the ground for a loader use. 

 

I've actually given thought about switching the serial plates, as both the original tractor and the replacement tractor are identical, other than condition, but I don't really know if I want to go that route, as it feels dishonest.

Maybe you could just change the frame and keep the serial with the engine, tranny and tins?

That was my suggestion Troy, find another frame and rebuild the tractor back to original.

 

Lots of work ahead of you, but I know it will turn out great like all the other you have done !!!

Thanks Brian. I think I'm going to go with the ideas of you and Alan. I really like it, and if able to get away with just changing the frame out, then it will still feel like the pair are still together. I've been thinking about adding a set of headlights and a tail light to the tractor, but I don't think I will. I'm just going to restore this pair together and leave them as found, no headlights or tail light, no added accessories, and no hubcaps. A package like this doesn't come along everyday, and to find a pair like this that were bought together, is kind of special. 

 

And by the way Brian, it's so good hearing from you again! Miss you Brother.  :thumbs:
