I have a 1997 325. While mowing it died. When I try to start it nothing. The starter does even try to spin. I jumpered out the safety switch on the seat still nothing.
Any ideas where to look?

What paint should I use. Is rust oleum ok for my 1968 110 or is there a better paint that isn't too expensive like du pont! I am ok spending a little but the tractor isn't my shop queen. But I want to look nice. Any ideas?

Why not use John Deere paint it not to bad on price I think around $48.00 a gallon the Valspar harder is a little pricey . And the JD thinner goes a long way .That is what I used on this 110.

8- Parts paint 1- Part thinner and 1- Part hardener. This will make about a quart at a time I shot it with a gravity type spray gun. You can get the mixing cups at any good automotive paint stores.

Thanks man. I have mixing cups and also a husky gravity feed gun. It works really well with farm equipment painting. Might even do my truck with it. Thanks man for the info. That's what I will use

I read this post and wonder is this what I should use on my 77 210 with original paint. I want to finally go ahead and make her all super pretty again for another long run. I really want to keep it as close to how it was when I first got it way back in April of 1978. Ok I had considered how she might look with a Patio paint scheme of Dogwood white sheet metal and maybe the Spruce Blue hood and seat or the Sunset Orange. I would leave the chassis black as this would be a 200 series Patio. Ok back to reality a JD should be green. Here is a photo from May 1978 and one from the present. It has always been kept indoors no sitting outside in the hot summer sun and freezing cold.

May 1978 a fifteen year old me and my sister.


Present day 2015 this year will be 38 years old.
