    107 Maintenance

    I've been working on my 107 lately. When I got it, it had some spider-web-wiring, weird muffler setup, and smoked really bad. I've disassembled, cleaned, and repaired some items as it's been going back together. Here are some pictures of the progress so far.

    I still think the headlights make it look like it's squinting, lol.

    Does it still have the stock exhaust elbow? I don't remember.

      It’s going to get the full light package as well, so the weird LED strips will go away.

      I came with an extra motor and parts box, which had the exhaust elbow in it.

        That's an interesting muffler, and heat shield...
        I know a "guy" who happens to have the headlight panel for that tractor. Just missing one ring.
        They can't all be turn key.

          Oh really? I have one I’m going to put on this tractor, but I will need more for a couple others that don’t have headlights. My 73 and 106 have yet to have them installed.

            Nice looking tractor Lance. I think Jon's comment about squinting is pretty accurate. lol

            Yes sir. I'll try and remember to get you a couple pictures over the weekend.

              Worked on the 107 a little today. Got it fired up to seat the head gasket. I need to go back and retorque the head now. Here are some pictures to prove it happened.

                Nice progress on the squinter Lance. Always good to see one get revived with some new parts. Btw That’s quite the long plug wire that thing has got.

                  That it is. I needed a wire and that’s the only one I had laying around. Just one more small part to add to the list of items to replace. 🙄

                Well I guess it's better being to long, than to short.

                    Been too busy. I have heat out there, so cold isn't a problem. Thanksgiving was last week and I've been busy with the Christmas musical at church. I did get my brass PTO buttons in from Jeff, so there's that. I didn't want to put the front end back on until I had those. I wanted to try and run the tractor for a little while before setting it up for snow duty, on the off-chance I have an issue with it. Not sure I'll get to do that though.

                  Got the 107 finished up this morning. I had the day off so I went out early, turned on the heat, and finished her up. I added headlights, spring assist, wheels w/ chains, weights, and installed the snow thrower. The PTO button was gone so I ordered some from Jeff. I’m happy with the way it turned out. She still smokes a lot, but I’m hoping maybe the rings just need to reseat themselves. If the smoke doesn’t stop after a few hours of use, I’ll probably look into tearing into it.

                    Looks much better with wide open eyes and not squinty ones.

                    Now you just need snow!!!

                      ^^^^^ What he said.
                      I was supposed to get you pictures of the lights I have for that tractor, wasn't I? Completely forgot about it till you mentioned "light" in your post. Sorry Lance.

                        No worries. I don't need them right this minute, so I'm in no rush.
