This is the one that got me started. Picked it up on Ebay for $195. Came with 39 deck and a modified 43 blade. It ran pretty good surprisingly. I think the motor is off a Patio series. It's a 1970 and currently not running as I was out snowblowing last winter and it just sputtered and died. Come to find out the 2 screws on the throttle butterfly in the carb came out. I'm assuming the worse and guessing they got sucked into the motor. I havent ran it since. Need to investigate further, just hasnt been a priority.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I think this one might be ready for semi-retirement. I had thoughts last night of converting the front end to a tricycle and maybe a repaint with a new hood. Possibly take it to some shows or just use it for a yard pig.

Nice 110 you have there. Sorry to hear about the screws. Hope it isn't bad.

As I get closer too retirement, I still plan on staying busy. Freshen the old boy up and give it a part time weekend job. It will thank you for it. Looks like there is plenty of life left in it.

The hood has some sheetmetal riveted to the front of it. Looks decent but needs fixed correctly or a new one installed. I never changed it cuz it serves it's purpose.

Nice looking 110. Looks like it's had a full life(but with much more to go).
I had a Cub 129 swallow a butterfly screw, apparently the other had been eaten some time before. The throttle went a little haywire before it shut down, I assume from the no longer attached butterfly bouncing around then finally choking it out. I opened up the Kohler, and no sign of the screw. I believe they are small enough , it went through like the proverbial "substance" through a goose. But I would pop the head just to be sure.

Thanks Gibby. I think I'm gonna pull the head just to be safe. Also thought about a magnetic pickup tool thru the spark plug hole...

Pulling the head is pretty easy to do. Remember to lap the head and torque the bolts to spec.

I lost the two butterfly screw, too. Good thing mine were the brass one not the steel one. I remove the head and no damage to the piston or side walls. Got new screws from JD dealer with lock washers and used lock tite for the new screws, have not had a problem with the screw coming out again
good luck on your, hope they were brass
