With the Dog deal complete I was lucky enough to obtain the John Deere 30 cart from Chaser in the Dog deal.
Been wanting it for awhile.
After an internet search and Pikeville Equip’s help we have discovered these things are not easy to find any information on.
Yesterday I contacted HAPCO and Kate about the repop sticker kit. She said she may be able to help and will let me know. I’m hoping as I really want to bring her back to life and have her attached to pull around at the shows.
Thanks again Chaser.

I can't wait to see what you do with it! I really wanted to get it done and take to shows behind the S92, but to many other things took priority.

i tried extensive internet search and had Pikevilke Equip helping also looking to
find info on these things but it’s just not out there anywhere . You get pictures when you google it but that’s about all. I love a challenge but if I cannot find a sticker kit that may hold me up. I’ll go the Elfman route and go to a local graphics shop and see if they can help. That’s one thing that is important to me if it’s a restoration. The original JD parts catalog does not even list it. It goes 80.50 then skips the 30. Wonder why.

I'm pretty sure (99.9%) that the "JOHN DEERE" block lettering is the same as used on the 50 and 80 carts.

As for the "30" decal, either do a search on eBay for tractor number decals where you can often find a sheet of various numerals in the green and yellow colors, or do what others have done and by the "80" decal and trim the 8 into a 3.

Ordered the new decal kit for the 30 cart. Got excited about it now. The wife ... not so much. Also will be picking up another 200 . For the price I cannot let it sit there. It does appear to be in a little better shape than the one I have now.
Make someone a real good deal. It runs and is in one piece now!!!

We ended up going pulling yesterday. Had much better results this time, doubling our previous bests. Traction was great, but the lil 8hp ran out of power.

So happy for the girls and The Dog .
I hope their really enjoying it. So is the daughter who came with you claiming the ownership of the dog?
If you get a chance post a small video.
Sounds like you’ll need to sneak a 10 horse into the Dog .
Sorry I did not make it up.
Second shift has made the weekends so
valuable now to get things done and then their is the family obligations.

So far they are sharing the dog, prob need to ad one over this winter. I've got a 12 hp that needs a rod, been debating putting that on the dog.
This one was out in Middletown.

Doing some digging on the ol' interwebs now. Looks like a 12hp swap may be a bit of work.
Any clue how a K241 would swap into a 67 110? I do have one of those sitting the shed.

Nope but there is always time to learn.
A 67 112 has a 10 hp Tecumseh in it and there is plenty of room.
Wiring will be different
There was an outfit that sold the vanguard engines and you could get everything to do the swap but I cannot remember who I talked to when I was having trouble with the 67 112 .
Think I started by looking on the inner web but at the time
could not afford the swap out.
