Hey all,

complete newby here!

recently purchased my first ever John Deere, a 1965 JD 110 RF with model 30 (I think) tiller
It's in pretty good condition, but the PTO and tiller drive belts look pretty rough.
I have no manuals for either the tractor or tiller. Can anyone recommend where to start in figuring out which belts I need and where to get them?

any help appreciated

Also your JD Dealer should be able to help. They still have most of the parts available.

:wave: CDFCCF Welcome to GTTalk! It's really great to have you here with us! I agree with what chris597 said. The JD dealerships still have a lot of parts available. The manual that MH81 pointed you to should help also. We hope that you enjoy the forum.

Hi Dave, I also have a 1965 110 RF and am new here as well. The manual posted above is for serial numbers #40000 and up. It is not the exact one for my model, but has a wealth of useful information. Just be careful when ordering, especially online, as I have found most of the 110 parts are for the later models, mostly serial #100,000 and up. How nice another green and yellow friend has come to play. Welcome.

It's not too hard to figure out what parts to order by going to JDParts Online. It will be broken up by serial number. Here's a link to it:

John Deere - Parts Catalog

You can register and pick your dealer and when you add an item to your cart, you can check the dealer's inventory and the suggested price. As long as you don't see NLA, your dealer can stock order it if he doesn't have it in his stock.

Also, check this site out:

Keeping It Green: Your Premier Online Source for all John Deere Parts

They are a JD dealership here in Missouri, but can ship to any locale. Typing in your model number on that page will give you about all the perishable parts, i.e. filters, belts, etc.

Please use JD belts, as they will last longer and give better performance. Deere specs their belts out and going aftermarket will only frustrate you as the aftermarket belts, though may have the same thickness and length, will not have the same belt cross-section geometry that is to the Deere belt spec. Also I have found that prices are very similar, unless you get an inferior belt material.

Here is another helpful site for parts for the old round fender JDs:


and finally the JD site to be if you really want to find out the best info on your "new" Deere:

Topics - Weekend Freedom Machines

Good luck.

CDFCCF, First of all, Welcome to the "GREATEST SITEON EARTH", for GT's anyway.. Secondly, I will have to agree with member "TMO", on the belts. J.D. is the only place to get your belts, if you want the tractor to perform at it's best. Deere belts use a special style of belt, that you can't find aftermarket. I hope this helps..
