Words cant express my gratitude. :greetings-clappingyellow:

Its funny, I looked on various other forums, web pages, Google image searches and even a John deere website cant compare to what this amazing site and its wonderful people can provide to dummies like myself. I had kicked around the idea of becoming a supporter and now I feel even more compelled to do so. Yes this helped immensely with my tranny issues. The previous owner was umm creative with his wiring and this will put those concerns to rest as well. Thank you:text-thankyoublue:

After looking over your pictures so far, I believe the year of your tractor is actually 1964.  I see a steel tubular front axle and a three speed (3 forward/1 reverse) shift pattern decal. Both of these items were only used on 1963 and 1964 110's. A 1965 110 would be a four speed (4 forward/1 reverse) transmission and have a cast front axle. Are the rear wheel hubs 3 bolt triangular shaped hubs or 5 bolt round hubs? To be correct, they should be the 3 bolt triangular hubs.

 

Looking forward to following your restoration and if you have any questions, ask away. I've been collecting these round fender 110's and 112's for 32 years now and can tear apart and reassemble one almost blindfolded.

yes after dating the serial number you are correct its a 64 but i already assumed you were correct from your pinpoint accuracy and yes the hubs are 3 bolt. right now i currently have a second window open ordering tranny bearings. i would have liked to get the same torrington  bearings that are in the tranny now but im getting KOYO bearings from amazon. first place that has 3 of the sizes. the two largest bearings that carry the differential are clearly marked  B-1812, as is the bearing for the brake shaft B-2816, and the one for the main input HJ-122016, but i cant find numbers on the four smaller ones that are the same size and reside behind the steel caps and hold the two intermediate shafts. even the diagram the mod provided is very vague for these 4 and im not certain which is which. the seals are also proving difficult. I believe 3 of the 4 are the same and also available from amazon #M40676 but the input shaft one is different, it has a national 480954-s54 number on it i cant locate from a retailer.

Have you checked with a John Deere dealership to see if these bearings and seals are still available? I have a list of all the part numbers for each and will gladly give them to you if you want them. If Deere doesn't have them available anymore, they may be able to give you a cross reference number for finding them elsewhere. Could save you some time and effort.

Sorry for not posting in a while. I had 14 vacation days off work and I thought I'd use the majority of that time to sandblast the billion pieces and get some green on them. Well....... I was pretty ill for at least 12 of those days with what I thought was covid, got tested for it and I must have just had bronchitis and a sinus infection so not much got done. All the big pieces, frame, seat, fenders, rims, etc that wouldn't fit in my blasting cabinet were done by a pro and in the past few days of feeling better I pushed myself to get some pieces done. I'll post some pics of what I've accomplished later this week. Thanks to covid spray paint isnt easy to get anymore and I'm low on green:angry-screaming:

 

At any rate I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving

Well little by little I'm getting the 13 quintillion bits and pieces blasted and wearing a nice shiny new coat of green. What's dangling in the photo is about 1/4 of the total. I have a tote with a bunch a finished waiting on assembly. In the other photo is two modifications I'm making. On the right is the old kingpin for the front axle pivot. If you zoom you can see the end towards the castle nut is worn badly as was the plate on the frame it was riding in. The frame was easy enough to build up a bit of weld and file flat and ream the hole. The pin next to the old one is one I made at work on the lathe. A solid pin should work as well. To the left is a possible replacement for the old main drive pulley on the transmission. As I stated earlier it's so close to the axle tube the belt cant be removed without removing the pulley. I found this one at tractor supply and its 1" smaller in diameter and the new hub I also made at work. Rather than modifying original parts I'm going to give this a go.
