Notes:

*112 round fenders were never issued from the factory with front 4.80/4.00-8 All Purpose Tread Design. Only studded tires were issued.

*112 round fenders were never issued from the factory with rear 6-12 All Purpose or Traction type Tread Design. In fact, they were never issued with 6-12 rear rims. Only 23x8.50-12 rear rims were issued from the factory.

*1966 112 round fender serial number tags look or have the same design as the 1966 110 serial number tags, but will have a identification code as listed on 1967 tags.

*1966 112 round fender tractors designated with the GT-3 tire series were available with either manual lift or hydraulic lift options, whereas the GT-4 tire series tractors were available with hydraulic lift only. 1967 112 round fenders however, were available with either lift option, no matter what the tire series was issued from the factory.

I have a 110 John Deere that is missing the serial number tag. Is there a way of finding out what year the tractor is without it? I know it would be impossible to narrow it down to an exact number, but at least a year would help in finding the correct parts for it. My dealership always asks me for the serial number and I never know what to tell them. 

Was also wondering if there would be a way of getting a serial number tag made for my tractor. Any ideas as to who I might contact?

As for finding out the year of your tractor, it can be done without having the serial number. A couple of pictures would help. I would need to see the left side of the tractor, the front axle, and rear hitch. After seeing these views, I can tell you what year your tractor is.

As for getting a serial number plate made, I don't have a clue as to who you should contact. My only suggestion would be to watch ebay and see if you can find a used one on there, once we determine what year tractor you actually have. I have a bunch of used serial number tags on stock, that were bought from guys who parted out these old round fenders. I may be able to help you out providing the tractor isn't the first year 110 (1963). Anything between 1964-1967 110's I know I have extra tags. Just not sure what I have available though for hydraulic lift. Is your tractor manual lift or hydraulic lift? While you are getting a picture of the tractor, I can go through my collection of tags to see what I have.

I don't have a camera. It's on my wish list though. Can you tell me what to look for, and maybe I can explain to you the information you need? I really appreciate the help, although I'm not giving you much to go on.

Yes, we can do it this way. Here are a couple of questions I'd need answered, and then we'll go from there:

1.Let me know if your front axle is a steel tube type axle, or a cast axle.

2.Do the front spindles have snap rings to hold them on, or do they have lock collars.

3.Do you have a three speed transmission (3 forward gears/1 reverse) or a four speed transmission (4 forward gears/1 reverse).

4.Is your rear hitch a flat faced flange or a pointed hitch.

5.Are your wheels held to the rear axle hubs with three lug bolts or five lug bolts.

6.Do you have a plastic shifter cover or is your shifter just sticking up through the frame.

7.Are your foot rests bolted to the frame of the tractor or welded to the frame of the tractor.

1. The front axle is cast.

2. They appear to be snap rings.

3. It's a four speed, although I'm not sure why they call it that since it has five gears.

4. Not sure what you mean by a flat faced flange, but my hitch is sort of pointed with a small flat area in the middle. Doesn't come to a complete point, but pretty close.

5. It seems there is to be five on each side, although there are only four on one side and three on the other.

6. There is a shifter cover marked with the different gear locations, but it doesn't seem like it's plastic. Fiberglass maybe?

7. Both footrest are welded on. One side seems to have a homemade type of rubber mat of some sorts, while the other side is just worn off green paint. The mat reminds me of the old stair treads that my grandparents had in their house. covering the front nosing of the steps.

Hopefully this will give you what you need. I'm fairly new to this, so you'll have to bare with me and a little forgiving if I don't know all of the lingo you guys use in explaining the parts. Thanks again for the help.

Your tractor would be a 1967 model year. Serial number would be between 65,001 - 100,000. See the chart that I started above for the type code information, although since you don't have a serial number tag, it won't make much difference for you. Here are some of the ways that I determined what you have:

1963 and 1964 110's have hollow tube front axles. 1965 - 1967 110's have cast axles.

1963 - 1965 110's have collars holding the front spindles to the axle, as the 1966 and 1967 110's have snap rings.

1963 - 1965 110's have a flat hitch flange, whereas the 1966 and 1967 110's have pointed hitches.

1963 and 1964 110's have 3-speed transmissions, and the 1965 - 1967 110's have 4-speed transmissions.

1963 and 1964 3-speed transmissions had 3 lug hubs, whereas the 1965 - 1967 4-speed transmissions had 5 lug hubs.

The 3-speed transmissions didn't have a shifter cover, whereas the 4-speed transmissions did. They were plastic.

1963 - 1966 110's had bolted on foot rests, while 1967 110's were the only year for welded on foot rests.

As for the foot rest mat, it more than likely is original, as they were an optional accessory available for you to dress up your tractor.

jdelfman,

Would it be possible for you to post a picture of a 1967 110 tag so that I know what I'm looking for? If you had the chance to look through your inventory, can you let me know if you found an extra tag that I could possibly buy from you? I really like this tractor and someday I may get around to painting it, but I know it will bother me if I paint the tractor and get it looking nice without a tag. If you don't have an extra tag, about how much am I looking at spending in regards to a price range if I happen to find one on ebay?

I really appreciate all of your help, and if I should find that I have more questions, would you mind me asking you? I see you are from the Lititz area, so I'm assuming we aren't that far apart from each other. Maybe we can meet up some weekend if you have some time? Just an idea.

I do have an extra serial number tag. I will take a picture of it and post for you, just not sure it will be today though. More than likely won't be until tomorrow. 

As for meeting up sometime, I'm looking forward to it. Always willing to meet fellow members face-to-face, and willing to help out anyway I can. What part of Lancaster County are you from?

Thanks Brian and Troy (I only now saw that you have your name posted in you signature). I really appreciate the help.

Troy, I'm from the Rothsville area. Shoot me a PM sometime and I'll give you my phone number so that we can meet up sometime. Oh, and by the way, I like your signature. Did you make that up yourself, or did you copy it from somewhere?

Hi I have a John Deere Tractor 110 and Im having trouble with dealers understanding the serial number that I give them which is on the plate between the choke and the throttle levers. The serial numbers reads A- 30434. If I read the info from your posts correctly would that be the serial number and also would that make it a 1965 model. Thanks Brian
