What group size battery do these 110s use? They use the top post batteries that require a bolt to fasten the cables?
Thank you.Nice looking 110 that you saved. Post some pictures of that El Camino sometime. we all like car pictures also. Steiner tractor parts has new steering wheels if you can't find a good used one.The guy i got my one 64 110 put one of the cheap carbs and it seems to be fine.
That mower deck is awesome. I was looking an ebay and there's one for sale right now that is in extremely bad shape! That's great that you found a 110 that had a deck with it.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.

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?
Thank you Chaser!Very nice looking!
Thank you jdelfman, The tank has been full of straight white vinegar for a couple days. I’ve been shaking it 2-3 times a day. I don’t know if white will work the same as apple cider vinegar. Maybe after I dump this I will put some cider vinegar in it.Put some apple cider vinegar in the tank, full to the top, straight without water. Let it set for two days, dump it out, and refill the tank again. Let the second batch set for three days and then dump. Wash out the tank really well then use air to dry it out. Tank will come out looking as good as new.
Thank you again, my choke cable works freely. I did remove the throttle cable yesterday, coiled it in the bottom of a pan and sprayed an entire can of Liquid Wrench in there. It was just enough to cover the cable.Wrap your choke and throttle cables around inside a bucket and cover them with Marvel Mystery Oil. Cables should start freeing up within a matter of days. Once the cable slides inside the housing, pull the cable out and rub it down good with steel wool. Re-insert the cable back into the housing while applying Vaseline to help keep it lubed.
Thanks for the tips Brian!That mower deck is awesome. I was looking an ebay and there's one for sale right now that is in extremely bad shape! That's great that you found a 110 that had a deck with it.
One thing I did with my throttle and choke cables is pull them out, disassemble them, and clean them up (I used a very fine sandpaper). When I reassembled them I sprayed the heck out of them with WD-40. Worked great and they are smooth now, but it was hard to get the wire back into the tube.
Also, HAPCO sells pretty good reproduction steering wheels, which is where I got mine from. They might be a little expensive though.
