Not AC or Simplicity

Was hoping maybe that someone familiar with John Deere can tell me where to find #'s on a John Deere 110 round fender tractor I just got

If not allowed I'll delete

Very cute - I was just at my neighbor's who has one of these in his family since new in '62. He is working on it to continue the legacy to his grown son. I was interested in the "variable drive" that looks like a sliding variable-diameter pulley arrangement in front of the 3-speed manual transmission. Yours has it - the short ratchet handle on the right side. I think some of the early Simp/AC's had something similar.

Father in-law just sold his restored one at the dispersal auction, last summer.

Otherwise I could have gotten you some shots.

 

He won at least one trophy for slowest tractor with the variator set-up on the trans.

Massey and AMF lawn tractors of the same era had the same variable speed belt setup and I believe peerless transmission.

It's also interesting to compare attachment designs. I'm comparing his Green (actually they are yellow) snow thrower and rototiller attachments to the A/C ones I have. They're really beefy looking, but also have very complicated hookups and drive mechanisms - steel bars, pulleys, springs, hinges, etc. everywhere. On the one in your photo, the blade attachment with its angle adjustment is a good example. Also I've noticed that all the Deere mowers seem to do a really rotten mowing job - He has several tractors with various types of mower decks including a brand new tractor that scalps and chops badly.

I am not anti-green - these are just casual observations.

We had a MF 10 tractor when I was a kid. Essentially the same tractor as the JD 110. Didn't handle high grass very well, which made that variable speed drive pretty handy. Of course it was only a 10 hp tractor, so... FWIW, the MF 10 was a really nice looking little tractor.

Is any one year more desirable than others, not familar with the Deere's

Considering restoration but I know what I had in the B 207 and what I was able to get out of it ?

If I am not mistaken, 63 was the very 1st yr for the round fenders and that yr the fenders themselves were made of fiberglass. The 63s command a premium price because of the fenders.

Pre 1968....when the round fender design was changed...the round fenders are very Collectible...the squared off ones are not considered as desirable

I couldn't see the # real good but looks like 88, xxx . I'll look closer tomorrow if I get time

This site is awesume , if I'd ask this question on a couple others not being AC or Simplicity they would have just ignored me because it wasn't orange , this is why I love this site.

It's the virus. Color blindness is a side effect.

No reason and to the truth, hardly anyone mentioned it for all the shows I went to.

I have an early Deere 210 with the variator and a 46" deck. The tractor is build like a brick house with a much beefier front axel and steering. It takes a football field to turn around though. Not much of a turning raduis. Tractor was quasi restored at one point so it looks nice. The Kohler 10 hp runs good but its a little underpowered for the deck size in tall grass. 

The deck goes on and off pretty well but the cut is typical Deer. It does scalp and because the blades are all on the same plane, it leaves wind rows sometimes as there is no blade overlap. As the blades wear it gets worse. Transmission is pretty bullet proof though and in 4th gear, variator all the way out, it flies. One of the fastest stock lawn tractors I've ever been on.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
