Nice 120 the deck can be replace see them all the time at the shows cheap!
According to JD Parts the 120 deck is a unique piece that might be found on late 140 H1's. Most likely the pans that you see are from the late 100 series and 200 series as the same piece was used on those machines for 15 + years of production.

I added one more coat since the pics. The sheet metal looks pretty good = good enough for a worker machine

Interesting thought... Removing the serial plate was really easy for me. I flipped the tower over, grabbed a six inch 3/8" drive extension, and gave it a few wacks with a hammer and it forced the rivets out without any damage. Put the rivets and the tag in a safe place until the tower is done and I can reinstall them.

New tool to speed up the process! Picked the grinder up at the local Bomgaar's and the twisted wire wheel is from the local Napa.
Some eyecandy for today...

Looking good, Rev! That wire wheel can give you a workout!
I sure did! Feeling it a bit in the shoulders and arms today. Enjoying the project time on my stay-cation this week! Off to the JD store to get more paint and continue the work.

Looking for you thoughts on the idea of converting my 120 to a H2 set-up using 316k parts. I got the valve, levers, and lines from both sides of the 316K cheap and was considering until I discovered the mounting system is entirely different. My searches yield discussion on 314 H2 conversions but nothing on the 120. I am thinking a H3 setup from the 140 would be MUCH easier and require little modification to the tractor and that is important to me. Anyone ever done this?
