That 120 is awesome!  It is turning out real nice. I have seen many 140's but very few 120's. Is a 120 worth more than a 140 since they are more rare?

It is worth more to me since I have put a fair amount of time and money in it.   :smilewink:   

 

It seems the 140 H-3 is the hot ticket for those who use them.  Some collectors like the 120 to add to the collection.   Valuable?  Depends on what people want to pay, I guess...  As I have mentioned before in the thread, this one was destined to be a parted on ebay so I have no guilt with my customization.  After reading about the k301 v/s the k321/k341 I am even happier with the 120.

 

BTW.. those caps are worker quality and will need a bit more work with some 0000 steel wool and a couple coats of wax.

 

Still missing a steering wheel, a couple of H3 lines, and a few small things.  Getting closer every day.

Here they are after I cleaned them up.  These are the best 2 of the 4 and are fine worker quality.  I took the following steps to clean them up.

1. Polished them with 0000 steel wool

2. Polished them with Maguire's ScratchX on the steel wool then buffed with old towel

3. Waxed with Mother's California Gold Paste Wax and then buffed with old towel

 

Installed for your enjoyment.

WOW, the hubcaps are really Cool. Would like some myself for my 318, but probably won't be able to find any. Also like that you made it into some of the pictures (reflected in the hubcap).

I find it ironic to see hupcaps on the lowest priced hydro tractor... but I have a strange sense of humor.

Here is the one that came on the tractor...

Two more pieces on the way from Joe's.  I got a nice H3 front bumper with cut-outs for the dual front ports and a pair of early h2 levers to go with the extra h2 set-up I picked up last summer.  I am still undecided if the 120 will get H2 or H3.  Either way, I am still missing lines from the pump to the valve block. I did contact an ebay seller this morning about them.

Happened onto the hoses in question from a '75 300 on eBay and will see if they work.  :smilewink:  Now to focus on my job. :say_what:

'Tis the day of scores!  Working the details on a steering wheel from Moosetales.  It is just like the one I removed from the tractor - he pulled from a '73 110.  :thumbs:  :thumbs:
