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.

I think 68 was the last year for limited slip trans, the guy over at Weekend Freedom Machines would have a better idea.

Wonder if it's possible to just swap out the Differential?

All the gears go in and hold and sound good but the differential is definitely worn. Pop it in neutral and coast down a hill and it's rough sounding,Put it in reverse and it's pretty raunchy sounding.

Might last for a long time if I drain and fill with 80 90wt gear oil but I would rather fix or replace the trans.

 

I pulled the head about an hour ago and it's STD bore. Looks good and straight yet. I think I'm just going to dingle ball hone it and slap a set of new rings in it. I'll check the balance gears and make sure they are still tight. But they might get removed anyway. I'll lap and reset the valve lash while I have it apart.

 

The engine does not knock or rattle so the connecting rod should be fine and it doesn't have enough piston slap to rattle under load yet. 

 

It has a #30 Carter on it no wonder it starts so easy. My Cub 149 had a #26 Carter and I had to choke it a bit every time even after it was warmed up.

Looks like a late 70's to early 80's. Manual PTO and solid number stripes. Louvered side tins so it's newer then a 75. If you can read the serial # you can look up what year it is on WFM. Now all you need is to get a hydraulic lift kit and a angling kit for the blade and you'll be all set.

She is in really good condition cosmetically. This tractor literally was Just a mowing machine all of it's life. I had to put the plow together and It still had paint on the Bottom of the skids. Which normally would of worn off the 1st time it plowed Anything. Must of been thrown back in the corner of a shed or barn and forgotten about all those years untill the grandson found it.

 

Just a couple things that need a little work.

 

For 1 the seat is a JD seat but unless it's forward almost the whole way it hits the gas cap when I sit on it. This seat may be a bit to big? Seat springs seem really weak. I smashed the heck out of my finger between the seat and gas cap when I retch up under to see what it was hitting. Lost a chunk of skin and a bit of swearing ensued lol.

 

I'm gona try draining the rear and put 80w-90 gear oil in it. If I can find some it I'll put 75W-90 mobil 1 synthetic in it. Just a little thicker than 80w-90 and  I had good luck quieting down the noisy  transaxle in my old MTD Fourteen Hundred. Same transaxles so it should quiet it down quite a bit.

Here we go heck I might as well order 2 quarts from Ebay.Saves me a couple bucks in gas money and it's a good price. http://www.ebay.com/...DIAAOSwPc9W1~ce

 

 

Wonder if this will fit?

http://classifieds.r...adindex=4490873

 

If I had the money I would snatch up a tiller for it. I see a bunch of them for sale between $100 and $250. Is there anything special that I would need to find to hook up a tiller other than the pulleys?

 

This is my 1st RUNNING JD. I had an old 110 for about a week before I decided to sell it for parts but she was rough and the engine was worn out to the point it had zero compression. Talk about ring gap lol I could stick the tip of my pinky finger down between the piston and cylinder. Never seen one THAT bad.

 

 

I forgot to get a picture of the serial # tag. I'll run out and see if my old camera feels like taking a decent close pic.Usually it's pretty blurry and washed out when I get to close lol.

Looked it up.

 

210, 212, 214 (80001-95000) 1978

 

 

It's early 1978 by the chart. I'm glad it's not any newer. No electric PTO clutch to worry about.

The hydraulic setup for the 200 series is a different animal then the one for the 110-112. The 110-112 setup bolts up on top of the engine, 200 series has a separate pump, tank and valve, not to mention a different side panel on the steering tower. As far as tiller wise you need to look for a 31 tiller, and there are about three different mule drive pulley assemblies JD made for them. The best one goes from one side of the frame to the other.

Depends on what kind of shape the tines are and if the lower bearings are still good. It does have the good mule drive.

Changed the gear oil in it.It definitely had been changed before but it had what looked like 30wt motor oil in it. I put Lucus Synthetic 75W-90 in it.Our local hardware store had it for $7 a quart.

 

It's alot quieter than it was but still a little rough sounding in reverse. Thinking the differential has a good bit of wear. I'm just going to run it that way until I can save up a few $$$ and go get the 68 110 my buddy has. It's complete but the engine is blown and the hood is mashed. He said I could have it for $100. It has a brand new starter on it and a pretty decent 38" deck that I can put up as a spares.

Took the side panels off today and degreased and pressure washed the heck out of the whole tractor.It's clean enough to eat off of even up under the tunnel. Shattered the neutral safety switch with the pressure washer.Blasted it rite apart. Easy fix though lol. I might have the pressure valve turned up a tad bit to high on the pressure washer.

 

 

I think I'm gona sell the hub caps.They will get destroyed if I keep them and I'm pretty sure they are for the old round fender JDs.

 

Seen a few sets of early embossed JD hub caps on Ebay that are in rough condition for $150-$175 and decent condition for $200. Mine are in alot better condition than the $200 ones. If I can get $150 out of them I'll be super happy.

 

I can put that money into the engine to freshen it up. Rings,Rod,gasket kit and what ever else it's gona need to make it last. It might need the ISO mounts.Have to look into that a bit.
