Great to have you with us Brett, Yes I have had to thin the herd by one but still have a 65 in the fold. I'm already looking at another tonight although its not a RF but a nicer larger GT that will help in aiding with snow removal  (Greg will like it)

Like I told you yesterday. The engine needs love, that's were I would start .Get it running good then tear it down to clean it up ,change belts and throw some paint on it . You done want to redo things after their painted.You have good connections with some of our "local" friends and with all of the members here you'll be on your way soon. Best advice is take your time. When your frustrated walk away and come back later.Good luck.

Also looking to get a service manual for better reference points my serial number is A22254. I saw some manuals on ebay but they look serial # specific. Where does my serial number lie for one of these manuals. Also what does the A stand for at the beginning of the #?

no need to buy. You can find them pdf online if you look. Will be serial number ranges for each manual.

The manual you are showing in the picture is actually for a flat fender 110/112, and not for the round fender tractors. They can be found periodically on eBay, and so far, they haven't been real expensive. You local John Deere dealer should be able to order you one as well.  You're looking for a manual that covers serial numbers below 100,000. 

As for the "A" insignia, not really sure what that is supposed to represent, but if I had to guess, I'd say it represents Altered. The '63 and '64 110's were pretty much the same design other than some not-so-stand out changes. However, when the '65 model was introduced, there were enough changes or alterations made, that it was practically a new tractor design, even though the overall appearance looked the same. I have a topic started that explains some of the design changes made to the '65 110's, so if you have a chance, try and read it sometime so that you have an understanding of what you have. 

I'd also suggest finding an Operators Manual for both the tractor as well as the mower deck. These will aid you as a quick reference for trouble shooting common problems. 

Good Luck to you and looking forward to following along on your progress.

Well let's say if it sounds to good to be true it is, I will not be adding a new member to the herd atleast right now. Guy told me he had a JD 300 that didn't run right and wanted it gone for $300 so you can probably figure out what happened. Oh well gotta squeeze some lemons to make lemonade.

So you bought it and are now stuck with it, or you decided to pass on it, and left it for someone else to figure out?
