Well I think its been 3 years... The 1972 110 will start its new life of parades and tractor shows. Gonna try to attach pictures.Hopefully not too many upside down etc.Bought it in condition as shown in first picture with a blown engine (connecting rod had let go). Got the block rebored, crankshaft machined and rebuilt the engine entirely. then I stripped it down to the frame and started with clean up and paint. Wow the hours that goes into something like this. The fender deck and hood got professionally painted at a body shop. The rest I painted myself with spray cans from John Deere. Whats left to do is the mower deck, and the seat. The seat shown in the restored pictures is a borrowed seat from a friend that I can use for this weekends show. I am happy with the outcome of this restoration. 3 more tractors to go. My goal is to have one of each farm equipment brand name garden tractor restored and ready for parades etc. So far I have Ford, Allis Chalmers and Deere kinda covered. So I shouldn't get bored anytime soon.
110 restoration finally nearly done

Nice restoration on the Deere, and the other's are nicely done also. I also like your diversification in brands.
