Hey guys. My name is Ben and I’m a diesel mechanic from Maine. I’ve got two 1966 110’s. One is a hydraulic lift model. Little back story

the 110H I got from my uncle literally 22 years ago with a blown motor. Hadthe mower deck and snow thrower. I was a sophmore in high school. I took the motor out and apart. Found the block broken, cab broken, crank scored and rod obliterated. I remember going to the local JD dealer and pricing out a short block and it was going to be $600. So I set the tractor aside and just never did anything with it. Now, life and 4 kids later I was ready to get it going so my kids can drive it around the yard.
I found a good rebuilt k181 locally, I replaced all the belts, front wheel bearings and a few other things to make it mechanically sound and got it going. I haven’t put the hydraulics on it yet but will after going through the pump and making new lines to the cylinder.
Before I got the 110h going, I knew I wanted a rototiller attachment. With a little looking around, I found a really nice one, only catch was that it was attached to a very original and running 110. So I did the logical thing and bought a second 110 before I got my first one running! This is a great machine that’s been well cared for. It’s go some wear but very solid and complete. I tilled a few garden beds and have been letting the kids drive it around the yard.
My passion is older big rigs. My father and I each have an Autocar truck that we’ve restored and use for play. I’m also addicted to square body trucks and have 9 total. Most are parts trucks but I have three on the road I drive daily.
I hope to learn some things and maybe I can help others too!

Welcome diesel man, in case you don't yet know it, you will need to add a diesel JD to your collection!

Nice 1981 suburban, and that Autocar is pretty sweet.
I like your 110s.
