would like to make on of my two 110s a pulling tractor but dont know which one. i have a 65 and a 73.
the 73 has all new gears and tranny bu the motor needs rebuilt. has kohler k181 8 horse
the 65 has a rebuilt kohler k181 8 horse, same motor. but it needs new gears. badly.. dont know which one would do better. and if i was going to pull with the 65 i was thinking about putting a narrow front on it. dont know if that would make a difference either???
need some suggestions and ideas. can post pics

I'm not an expert on the JD's, but I believe that the '65 would be a round fender model? If it were me, I wouldn't modify the rarer of the 2. That's just MHO. I always say that it's yours so you can do with it what pleases you. I also believe however that parts are more readily available for the newer version, should you break something while playing. Again, just my $.02!

Find yourself a good used motor on ebay or craigs list, and use it in your '73 110. This way you don't have to rebuild your '73 motor, and you won't be destroying your '65 110. I agree with caseguy, I'd use the '73 to pull if that is indeed what you want to do. There are more plentful '73 110's out there for replacement, then there are '65 110 round fenders. Better yet, try and find another good, used, '71-'74 110 that has a decent motor and transmission, use it to build your puller, and then use your original '73 as parts if needed. The '71-'74 110's and 112's are all basically the same with the exception of lift types, pto clutching, and motor horsepower.

As all have said go with the 73 eaiser to find parts for.
