Well this Green thing followed me home yesterday evening. Gave $450 for it but I think I did OK for as clean as it is. I did have to wash,buff and wax the darn thing.
Engine is untouched but the rest of the tractor has had an older restoration. Engine runs smooth and quiet but does smoke a bit on startup and under heavy load. (Mowing 4 foot tall field grass) Other than that and the broken steering wheel spoke it's in really good condition.
Variator seems to be working correctly,Differential is a little noisier then I would like but the fella I got it off of put 30wt motor oil in it when he changed it. Gear oil might quiet it down but I should put another transaxle in it. I can get an trans dirt cheap off of a fella just down the road.
It was to clean and well kept to pass up for the money. 38" Deck has new blades,belts and freshly rebuilt spindles.Missing shifter surround but the fella I got it off of just called me and said he found it. Plastic tabs are broke but I can drill and put small stainless bolts and nyloc nuts on the back side.
Bunch of Pics.
Broken spoke on steering wheel.
Anyone know what model and year JD used the LSD transaxle in? I was thinking the 68 110 had LSD but i know the drive pulleys are different size between the 100 and 200 series. Ran into that problem on the neighbors 110 that I put a 212 tranny in.
A Dirty bird sat on the steering wheel and did it's business on the dash of coarse. Robins have a nest in the big lilac bush by the fence.I would tear it out but it has eggs in it.
