Got those elbows installed but did not get to anything else done.  I wanted to work on it today but ran out of time between a long visit at the church and a long phone call with a friend.  Not sure when I will get to the next step of reassembly.

Spent some time one the 120. Finished up the wiring and installed the battery tray. I also installed the gas tank. I used self-adhesive foam used on fiberglass caps between the tank, brackets, and frame.

That's looking real nice! Glad the ells worked for the lines! I have some of that foam tape, got a use for it coming up!

I bought that tape when I installed the tonneau cover on my Ram (traded last May) and never used it.  I think I will install it on some other surfaces on the 120 as I do the final install.   

 

One more thought - I will not crank over since I reinstalled the wiring harness.  I think I have energized the wrong pole of my 2-pole solenoid.  Hope to get to that later this week.

Last night I found the last two stickers to install on the 120.  They were hidden (or buried) and forgotten on the desk.  I installed the warning sticker on the gas tank so it appears to be complete under the hood.  The final sticker that goes on the fender pan will not get installed until I do some additional sanding and paint work when the weather warms up.  Now to get those repop seats from Hapco in my hands.

Redid the pto indicator light on the dash with a grommet from napa and the same light from eBay. Looks good to me and is more secure than the first try.  The grommet fit perfect and the light pushed right in place.  Much more secure too.

Messed with the 120 wiring today.  It seems that I am not getting power to the solenoid or the starter.  I will break out the FSM and start tracing wires.

Wow your tractor is looking awesome, how did you get the green so shinny, is that clear coat?

 

I need a new coil wire and battery leads like yours

 

I also have to repair my hood

 

Im having trouble finding the 110 dash sticker, they have it on ebay but it looks brown not black and Hapco didn't have the one for the 110

 

I also need to get that sander you have and wire wheel

 

I have to get that body filler like you did to fill in some scratches

 

Also you said you used 300 grit sandpaper?

That is standard Deere paint in a spray can.  I have a pretty steady hand and a good eye that helps me get that finish.  

 

The battery leads are are off the shelf stuff from Napa.  

 

If the decal is not available from Hapcoparts then it is likely available from Deere.

 

That is a basic grinder with a high-rpm wire wheel added.  I have wiped out one and a half of those on this machine.  :watch_over_fence:

I think it was 320 between coats.  I will have to check.  In my experience it is better to go too fine than too coarse.  Wet sanding with 320/400 yielded the best results between coats.   

 

Send me a message if I can be any additional help.

Stuck the fender pan on to get I out of the way.  Since this is a worker I might just install it as is and be done with it.  The more I look at it the more the 120/140 style grows on me plus it is a fair amount smaller than the 314.  Really happy with my project.  :smilewink:

If you send me your address through a message I can cut a couple of feet for you and drop them in an envelope.
