Serial# 60223
I got this a while ago and decided to do something with it before the snow starts. I have 3 - 300s and 1 - 316K, this is the worst one of the bunch was going to nominate it for ugly tractor but it is not running. There are too many things on this that are busted, seized or not moving I think this ones going to be for parts, since I don't know much about JDs it's a good one to tear apart and learn on.
I have already found a use for the hyd. lift cylinder, it was in good shape and I have a buddy up north looking for a 16hp Kohler K series motor. The engine turns and when I got it it was oiled up, muffler rusted right out, you can see whats inside, has 4 chambers in it. Carb seized + ???
Disassemble has begun.

How long did it take you to get it down to the frame?

Taken it down as far as you see with the motor out, about 1hr. Most of the body was fallen of it, so far all the bolts that attach or mount the motor all came off, not busted.

I did some searching and found that the engine in this tractor was made in 1976.

The tractors serial# shows the tractor is a 1976 model also.

That is rough... my '67 RF 110 is in about the same shape. Gotta save it as my grandfather purchased it new. This looks like it is destined to be a parts machine but could be saved if desired. Perfect candidate for a repower LOL
