I’ve been looking for a while now, and ended up with this 1966 110.
It’s been parked in a hay barn for 10 years or so. Hasn’t ran since it was parked. The hood is not original and has previously been repaired, it needs a better repair. The steering wheel is 80s vintage and needs to go. Appears to be a good solid tractor that is only missing the pto cover.
Now I’m on the hunt for a good round fender steering wheel, pto cover and possibly a better hood.
A few mandatory pictures.

When we got home.

Unloaded and in the barn.

Gonna get a carb kit, plug, plug wire, points and condenser. Change the oil, clean the fuel tank and sediment bowl, hook up a battery and see what happens.
Any suggestions before I turn the ignition?

Congrats on a nice find! It's great to see another '66 110 that's been saved and will be up and running again. There's not a whole lot that you'll need to change and it sounds like you're well on the way to having it running soon. I'm sure you'll be able to get a lot of help and info on this great website along the way. We all enjoy seeing progress on projects like these, keep us posted and thanks for the photos.

Thank you.
I just found this site, not even a month ago. There’s boat loads of information in the stickies, and from the threads that I have been reading there’s also boat loads of info in the knowledge of the members.
Great site, glad I found it!

You need a hood from a 1964-1967 110 or 1966-1967 112. The 60 and 70 hoods are also the same. 1968 and newer 110,112,120,140 hoods are completely different.

Brandon is right, the newer hoods are completely different. Much wider and longer.

Spent a little time in the barn today tinkering with the 110. The fuel tank, carb and air cleaner is off. The tank has some nasty liquid in it, not sure if it used to be gas! The sediment bowl is full of nasty yellowish lacquer. What’s the best procedure for cleaning the fuel tank?
The throttle cable is froze up. I’ve been squirting Liquid Wrench in both ends periodically.

There’s a lot of gunk to be cleaned off the engine.

Not sure why these ^^^ are sideways.?? They are straight in my photo gallery.
Axles look dry!

Also removed the mower deck. Surprisingly good condition as far as rust goes.
It was hanging by these, shouldn’t they be the same?

I will post pictures of the mower later.

I have to keep telling myself that I am going to clean it up and get it running. I keep wanting to disassemble everything.
Fun Fun!!

Thank you!
I’m thinking about dumping a couple hundred copper BBs in the gas tank with some lacquer thinner or some other liquid and shaking the snot out of it to try and clean the gunk out. Only problem is the baffle that’s inside, should clean up 2/3rds of the tank well, but not sure about the 1/3rd on the other side of the baffle.
What do you think??

Nice to see another round fender being saved from the scrap pile! Or barn in this case.
