    Jd 112

    Hi all. I recently picked up a 68 112 for $50. The guy I bought it from knew nothing about it , other than it didn't run. It's complete except for the motor (Tecumseh). Someone took it apart when it quit, and found that the cam had broken. When they put it back together they left off a few parts. From what I can tell, I can get the parts I need for about $200. The tractor is in real good shape other than the motor. My question is do you think its worth fixing? I was just going to part it out, but if it is a decent tractor, I might just fix it. Thanks in advance for your help.

    It would be a workhorse. Towing is only traction limited. Is it worth fixing? That’s your personal decision. There’s not a huge amount of money either way.

    I have a 73 112. Bought it for $350 about 10 years ago. It ran awesome for a while. I beat the snot out of it good though. Started to lose power and was hard to get running around 5 years ago. Engines was on its way out. Mines a Kohler though. It too needs a rebuilt engine. A local shop quoted me anywhere from $300+ depending on how bad it was. I remeber a rebuild kit only being around $125 or so? But that was years ago. Im finally thinkin about rebuilding myself. Im pretty mechanically inclined and have rebuilt cars and tractor manual transmission before. How hard could it be? Haha. It really depends on how much you want to throw at it. I think Theyre only worth ~$1000 ish running mint.

    I got well under $1000 for the one curbside. It also included a mower. I see it in use up the street regularly.

    Now this is just my opinion, but the square fender Deeres, the 110, 112, 120, 140, were the last of the good looking John Deere garden tractors. About the only thing nicer looking, in my opinion, in the JD L&G line was the round fender tractors. Just my opinion, of course.
