Its alive!!! It sounds awesome and runs smooth. Hydraulics work and the headlights work and the PTO works. I took the master breaker out and cleaned it and there was a loose wire on the back of the ignition switch. Feels like it has a lot of power. Can't wait to actually use it. Gotta get a battery for it. What size battery did they put in these things?

JC 616:

 

 

Operator's Manual says

 

Battery . . . Jon Deere, 12 volt,  (AM31186). BCI Group 22F, 255 cold cranking amps at 0 degrees F., 55 minute reserve capacity at 25 amps.

 

But saying that, most auto-supply stores, Sears, etc. can match a battery to the JD 140 model.

 

Good luck

 

Harlan

Oh I was thinking along the lines of a small car battery cause that's what was in it when I got it
