I'm a newcomer to this website. I checked out the forum before registering and realized there are several people on this that knows their stuff about restoration. I have a 1971 140 H1 (34631M) that I'm in the process of putting back together. I pulled the engine, honed the cylinder wall, put a new piston and rings in, etc. I have a feeling the engine will be like new. The old piston rings were allowing oil to seep up into the cylinder and it had blown the gasket letting oil seep out. Whomever owned this mower in the past did a terrible job on repairs. The stator was burnt and the wiring had a lot of electrical tape on it. I knew someone that was able to rewind the stator rather than spending a fortune at JD. I am going to be able to salvage the main wiring harness, but there needs to be a lot of attention where connections are made (coil, 10amp regulator, capacitor, etc.) And that's where I am now. I have a service manual and an operator's manual that I ordered last year. Neither of these have good pictures as to the correct ways to route the wires and mount the capacitor for example. I need a few close-up pictures of the left side of the engine if anybody has any. There were some pictures on the forum the other day when I was browsing, but not the ones I needed. Of course I have referred to the wiring diagram in my service manual and can see what needs to be connected where, I just need to see a good example from someone whose got it all mounted and routed correctly around the engine. Thanks to anyone that can help me. There will be pictures to come. I'm probably going to paint it in the next year or two. I have several more questions, but will reserve those for now.
