Well I took Kyle 1s advice and expanded the herd with a JD 70. It Takes me back to my childhood going over to Kyle 2s and riding his JD 60 around.
I found it in Allentown. The guy has a bunch of other stuff I said I would pass the word on to all you guys. He gave me his number and said give it out. I have pics of a 140 with a plow I'll post he said he thinks he wants to get rid of itCongrats!!Looks like it'll clean up well. We're did you find it at?
Thanks for the model year I was wondering about that. In not sure how the motor runs the guy said it was running last fall. However I stuck a battery in it quick when I got home and hit the key and nothing happens. And unfortunately no attachmentsNice! It's a 1972 year model. How's the motor run? Any attachments with it?
Kyle 2 and I go back to kindergarten haha and he is an ok mechanic at best hahahaTake your time you've got a great friend in #2 and he's a very good mechanic. Plus we are all here for you. A 140 really......
I would be interested at some point probably sooner then later. What would you be looking for price wiseIf I were to make a guess on the model year, I'd say it's a 1970. Looks like the double pullies are missing on the PTO and not sure how easily available they will be in finding.
On another note, if you are interested in a mower deck for your little 70, let me know as I may be able to help you out.
The patio's started in 1969 and ran through to mid year of 1971. As to how I'm determining this tractor to be a 1970, is due to the notch out on the frame for the points cover removal. 1969's didn't have this notch. I can't zoom the pictures in close enough to tell what type rear is in the tractor, but the early rears with disc brakes were run to about mid year of '70, then the newer rears with drum brakes were started. I don't think the front headlight bezel is original, nor is the steering wheel. Is the serial number for the tractor obtainable?Troy the patios were in 1969 correct? Wish I had the ability to tell years buy looking at them. Old cars is easy compared to tractors
