Came across a running V70 motor for sale. Seller is asking $125.00. I have a VH70 for a '74 JD 70 that I am going to restore. The VH70 runs. Thinking it might be a good idea to buy the V70 since parts are harder to find and by the looks of it I can use parts from the V70 for the VH70. Thoughts? Thanks

I bought a V70 recoil start for $10 bucks this fall. Needed a carb cleaning. Crank is 1" so I need a new pulley and wont be able to use the clutch.

If it was a VH70 (cast iron block) its probably worth $125.

Does this have electric start with charging? Is it the right oil pain for a JD 70?

Its recoil start, no charging system that I can see. Cant tell crankshaft diameter from the picture.

I would give about 1/2 he's asking personally...

Shannon, dont know, its a pretty small pulley and you know space in these 60/70's are a premium so I dont know if you would have room for the electrics under there.

Maybe a clutch from a STX38 or 111 or something?
