Nice looking 112 EL. You don't see them in that kind of condition too often!

Pretty sure thats not the right battery for it though. I was told once that these tractors use a skinner one then car batteries.

The grill is actually not a grill but an HVAC filter cover. It took me a while to figure it out. But when I pulled it out during the headlight installation it dawned on me what it was originally. As for the battery size I have no idea as that is what was in it when I acquired it (and is still in there now). It's a worker and is not 100% accurate as far as how it would have come from the factory. I am probably the um-teenth owner (but it hasn't been overly distorted during its lifetime). Here it is with headlights (old plow lights):

Nice find! Looks to be in very good condition.
Those headlights will definitely get the job done.

FYI, that`s the same size battery that my 112 and 210 have
