    1965 Lawn Tractor

    I have owned this JD 110 since about 1997 and I mowed with it up until about three years ago. It was finally to tired to cut the mustard, so to speak. So I bought a new Zero turn and parked this one in the shed. Over the years I had also purchased an early model 31 tiller that I planned someday to mount and use. A couple months ago I pulled out the 110 to get her running again and possibly sell it. But the more I worked on it, the more I decided I probably wouldn't get my money back I had in it. So I decided to go for broke and totally restore it after overhauling the engine.
    Here is the before picture and where I am now. Just a few small things left on the tractor, and I'm still waiting on the front tires to come in. The tiller will be next.




    And now.....

    That looks great for a 52 year old. Frankly you have taken very nice care of it because it looked pretty good before

    The tractor hood was the hardest part. It was cracked so I repaired it rather than replacing it. I used a metal band strap and drilled holes in it and the hood and then riveted them together. Then I fiberglassed it and finally body filler.
