Last night I decided to "go for broke" & pulled the trigger on the next round of parts for the 120. I ordered the steering box rebuild kit, a few gaskets, seals, and that $72 center link. I also ordered the free battery kit that Deere made available for the older tractors. Not sure when they will be in but I will probably take Monday off and work on it. My weekend quickly got booked with a funeral and all that is related to it.

This free kit was put together by Deere for the 110/112/120/140 series tractors to increase safety. I have a form that the owner of any of these machines can fill out and get the kit for free. I need to get one for the 110 too.

Here is the JD part number: AM38456

Guess I can't get one. Don't have one of those machines, just a lowly RER.

Travis, you're going to like the Electronic ignition. Sure makes for one less problematic area on the older machines. Hotter spark, too.

Since this is a worker I could justify the additional money. It helps that I had a few pricy things sell on ebay over the weekend.


Called the local dealer and my uber-huge order will be in Wednesday.

I sanded and repainted the hood since it is a nice afternoon. While working I figured out what caused the spiderwebbing on the one side. I ran out of paint in one can and switched to a new one. The new can went on great. The old can was the source of the problem. I also primed and painted the steering column that will get rebuilt later this week. Pics of the work later tonight.

Are you going to buff out the aluminum housing on the steering shaft, to look like chrome? :dancingbanana:

I hit the housing with the wire wheel which is good enough for me. The polished idea is cool but I want to keep focused on the "worker" that it is.

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on an order from Hapco. :smilewink:
