I'll see about getting some pics.
I spent some time on JD Parts and found that the 314 uses 1" spindles and the part cross-ref-ed to late 140, 300, 312, 314, and 316k . The 120/140 share the same size. Do you have any pics? I can compare to the original and replacement spindles from my 120.

H-2 parts from a 316k. I know they are not "correct" but it is a worker that I plan to enjoy.
Here is the deck that I picked up for it. It is another Model 41 (38" cut) from the same 316K. It is solid but needs straightened out. I think "the blue wrench" and a bit of hammer lovins it will be fine. At this point it is a solid worker and fits my needs just fine. Again, this is a worker and not a show machine.
The gauge wheel on the left of this picture was welded at one time and is a bit off but that was not a deal-breaker. Again, this will go on a worker and not a show machine.

Keep us posted. We don't see that many 120 restorations!
You don't see many because there were not that many 120's made. From the serial numbers on the WFM registry there appear to have been less than 10,000 made. One might call this a rest-ification as I am adding non-factory installed items and it will likely get a re-power some time. I won't be doing much during the next week with a crazy schedule at the church --> Community VBS with 150+ kids every morning and the normal stuff the rest of the week. I am tired just thinking about it.

I finished painting the black parts I started last week and wiped out my can of Blitz black. Fortunately I did not run out. I also got the seat pan back from the local welder. He did a nice job welding up the holes where the cab was once mounted. I was a bit surprised to see he used some spot putty to smooth them then put a coat of paint on the entire seat pan. The problem is that he did not sand/prep the old paint before painting the new. When I hit it with wet 320 grit, the new paint started to peel off very easily. I hope to get it all sanded and primed in the next day or two.

Found Carlisle All Trail 23x8.00-12 Lawn Mower Garden Tractor Tires on eBay but not on Millertire.com. I am close to pulling the trigger on them for the rear of the 120.
In light of the incedent this morning involving the 110 I pulled the trigger on these. Miller Tire is shipping them tomorrow. Now I need to get to work on the rear wheels and keep going on the rest of the tractor.
