Had a few out the other day...

Last week Dad needed to use the broadcast spreader which is in the back of the shed. I had to dig a few machines out to get to it. So I took a day of vacation to work on it. First I had to put the 917 back together since it was blocking the path. I was doing some winter maintenance, installing a fuel pump and replacing some gaskets. I had it sitting there with the carb/intake off, breather and valve cover off, fuel tank out, steering wheel off, and solenoid off. Of course even the new OEM starter solenoid did not fit the 900 Series dash without having to file out the mounting posts. It also mounts upside down. After 6 hours I had it done and could start getting tractors out of the shed. I moved 7 tractors and many stacked boxes, and five or six implements.

914 and 917

Changed the break-in oil out from my 914S rebuild last summer.

While my older B-110 had started and drove out of the shed just fine after 6 or more months of sitting... when I went to restart it to put it away, it would only run choked. After some inspection I found the fuel lines were collapsing internally. The fuel in the tank was old too so I removed the tank and drained it. I installed all new fuel lines and a new fuel filter. The tractor now ran like a dream. I still need to reseal the hydrolift cylinder as that's why this tractor has been unused since it's refresh back in 2008 C I have had that B-110 since I was in high school and its the FDT I really cut my teeth on.

What a nice looking B110. Just got my "new to me" B110, and it looks like you have a thicker washer on the pivot bolt than I have. That may help tighten up my front axle,as it does move front to back some on either side when steering wheel is turned.

Awesome collection Chris, I know the tractor shuffle well, seems like whatever I want to use it's parked or stored behind something else.

Chris:

I just bought some new tires like yours for the front of my B-110. Plan on sandblasting and painting the rims before remounting.

Did you remount using tubes again, or did you remount tubeless as the tires indicate? I have heard some of these older style rims don't work for tubeless tires.

THanks.

Think I might try them tubeless then, when I get the wheels cleaned up good, and leave them set a while before putting back on tractor. If I need to, then I will put the tubes back in.

Thanks for the info Chris.
