After the Apple Fest I brought home a 71 JD 140 that pop wanted to part with. Drove it around a little but really did not pay attention to it. So into winter camp it went.
Was getting a little board so went up and dug it out yesterday. A few coughs and hacks and she came back to life. Did I mention she smokes? So with her loaded we came back home. Down to the man store for oil,points, air filter and such.
Started with a good bath ,removal of the deck(41) and for attitude a set of 24x12x12 on the back.
New tune up and oil and she still smokes. Guess I’ll need to break it of that habit. Don’t really want to tie up the garage doing a full resto but feel if I get started that’s what will happen.
Other than smoking she is really not in bad shape. Need to repair one of the head lights. She has a lighter that works believe it or not. The adjustable seat is a nice touch too.
