Hello everyone, It has been awhile since I have posted. I just thought I would show you guy’s a 1963 110 (#2752) I picked up last week. The man I bought it from got it from his sister because she was going to scrap it! It came with the original fabricated mower deck and a #42 snow blade. It still has the original 63 only hood and fiberglass fenders. Unfortunately the original 7hp Kohler was replaced with a 10hp tecumseh (If anyone has a Kohler K161 or a K181 with a screw in dipstick for sale let me know). I hope to start restoring it fairly soon. My dad and I restored my other 1963 #2865 about 4 years ago.

Been awhile since I updated everyone on this tractor. I found the correct 7hp k161 Kohler for it. I also was able to find an original starter generator cover, correct 1963 primary cover, PTO cover, and seat. Here are some pictures of how it looks now.

Very nice!
What makes the hood 63 only?
Thanks
Thanks! The 1963 hoods were handmade so the underneath is “textured” fiberglass, the front of the hood is also shaped differently than the 1964-1967 hoods. The hood latch is also completely different on a 63, It actually clamps to the battery holdown. Here are a couple photos to show you the differences.

Had the 63 out today with my 80 cart cleaning up sticks in the yard.

Looks like an early 80 cart too, it has those skinny tires. 👍🏻
Yep, it's an earlier one! I believe it is a 1967.

Not intending to hurt feelings but I'd like to set a misconception straight. The skinny wheel's on the 80 dump carts were actually an option, no different than ordering narrow front wheels for on a round fender. They weren't used only on early carts although most skinny's are shown on early carts. Most collectors think Deere produced the first and some of the second year dump carts with the narrower wheels only, but most carts were released from the factory with the wider wheels and changed to the narrower wheels at the dealership. The only reason most early carts have the narrower wheels is due to the buyer wanting the cart wheels to match the front wheels of their '63 or early '64 110 because that was the only available tire for the tractors at the time.

Again, not wanting to upset anyone but I figured since the topic was brought up, I'd give clarification.
