Default trans/axle rebuild kits JD 110/112 ?s

time has come to at least put an axle seal kit in my '71 112. the input seal started slinging all the gear oil everywhere. also one axle shaft seal is leaking pretty bad.

Does anyone have any links or info to steer me in the right direction to find the parts for it?

i'd love to get my hands on the rare locking unit and just swap them.

if anyone knows what models they used the 4 speed w/ granny low transaxle in that would really help.

or any other transaxle that fits in the 112.

i emailed the guy i bought it from and he has a transaxle out of a 212. he said they have the same gear placement and use the same belts. (i believe him, he seems to know a lot about JDs.)
but i'm wondering if theres any difference between them?
maybe the 212 is a little heavier?

he also has access to one from a 112.

Your 112 has a Peerless 2300 series transaxle in it. It should be the 2316 and the posi is the 2317. It is the same as the model 200 Deere's. It's also the same trans that's in my Magnatrac loader and I had to go through it earlier this year. You won't even have to separate the case and deal with the gears to swap the seals. They say the hardest part on the Deere's is getting the hubs off of the end of the axle. Then all you need to do is pull the axle housing and the seals are on the inside of the housing. The input shaft seal is easy once you get the pulley off. I got my parts at JD but the Outdoor Dist. website has great info on the Peerless transaxles. Really a pretty easy job. Good luck with it.

They only had to order one thing I needed, they had the seals. It might be some dealers only do large ag equipment and don't stock anything for riders. Try this link to find a dealer close to you and then sign up with them. Use the link to the parts books that Sergeant provided to find the part numbers and then when you go back to the dealers site it will give you price and availability on hand. It's a really cool setup JD has and then you can see which is the best stocked dealer near you.

The early 110s and 112s had 3 speed all the rest had the 4 speed flip up granny gear. I rebuilt a lot of them. just sold the last one . For $25.00, There is not a big demand for them; The gears are the same size as the 1948 ford truck. I found the week part in the trans was the Indent shifter ball springs; They are fun to replace. If you need them I have several sets. Oh the transmission has to be split then the fun starts. with the slider shafts The input is a needle cage bearing; the input shaft must be replaced also' that is what wears because of the belt tension on it. Don't tare any short cuts when rebuilding it,,

This info is off of the WFM site. Tranks confirmed he has a four speed transaxle.

The model 112 came out in 1966. After the successful sales of the Model 110, Deere realized they need a lager size mower for the larger size jobs. The 112 carried on the same sleek styling of the 110, but with a larger motor and of course, a wider deck.. The new model 112 had the following specifications:
Cast-iron Tecumseh HH100 ten hp engine.
4speed transaxle with super low for tilling
Electric start,
Worm gear steering
Fiberglass hood
1.9 gal fuel tank
Dry type air filter
Variable speed drive


The 112 is truly a farm-bred tractor. They bring time saving performance and convenience that owners expect form John Deere. They are designed for everyone to drive with a triple-safe starting system to prevent dangerous unexpected starts. The variable speed drive gives you complete control to match the tougher job conditions without sacrificing engine speed or working efficiency. Hydraulic Lift was a new option for the 1966 model year on the 110 and 112.

The 1966 112 had a base weight of 642 lbs, and carried a $830 price tag. A 12 with hyd lift weighed in at 663 lbs and was $938. The #46 deck was $150.

The 1968 model year showed a lot of new changes. The fenders and platform were combined into a 1 piece fender deck. An adjustable cushioned seat provided great comfort. Slanted footrests provided a place to rest the feet while mowing. Headlights were placed right above the grill just under the front lip of the hood. In 1969 another 10hp was an option. You could get a K241AS 10hp Kohler. Hyd lift was still an option.

1972 brought another hp change. A 12 hp K301AS Kohler was standard. Manual and Hyd lift were dropped and electric lift was the only lift option. An electric PTO clutch was standard 1972,73. In 1974 a manually engaged PTO replaced the electric clutch.

Year Serial Number Engine
1966 2,551 -3,550 Tecumseh HH100 (10hp)
1967 3,551 - 100,000 Tecumseh HH100
1968 100,001 - 130,000 Tecumseh HH100
1969 130,001 - 150,000 Tecumseh HH100
1969 150,001 - 160,000 Kohler K241 (10hp)
1970 160,001 - 180,000 Tecumseh HH100
1970 180,001 - 185,000 Kohler K241
1971 185,001 -225,000 Tecumseh HH100 (10hp)
1971 225,001 - 250,000 Kohler K241
1972 250,001 - 260,000 Kohler K301 (12hp)
1973 260,001 - 300,000 Kohler K301 (12hp)
1974 300,001 - Kohler K301 (12 hp)

alright, i picked up a 212 transaxle from the guy i bought the tractor from for $50! he had the 112 and 212 transaxles side by side and the 212's looked like it was in better shape. my current plan is to swap transaxles and run it with the 212's transaxle until i have money to rebuild the original one.

there is two small differences between the two, the spot where the brakes mount is clocked differently and the belt tensioner spring mounts differently but i can just swap the brackets.

anyone have any tips for taking hubs off?

the left one just about fell off, there was an oil leak running through it so there was no rust at all on the splines. but the right side is rusted tight. currently the whole transaxle is sitting in a cinder block with the right hub point straight up and i poured a mixture of atf and seafoam into the hub and heated it up with a torch. i saw a lot of bubbles come up and the mixture turned brown after i heated it the second time. so i would assume its eating its was through the rust.

That's what they say is supposed to be the trick, getting the hubs off. I've got a buddy that told me about heating up the part and melting wax into it and it busts the rust. I've never had the occasion to try it. Go over to the Weekend Freedom Machines site and do a little searching. Your not the first one with this issue and they've fixed them before. Good luck with it and let us know how you make out.

thanks for the link.

i forgot to say a few things yesterday...

the guy said the 212 was from the 80's.
there are differences between the 212 transaxle and the 112.
-first is the shifter, it is bent differently and looks like it will not fit in the 112 gear pattern plate. simple fix though, i just swapped shift towers.
-second, the belt tensioner uses a chain to hook the spring to the arm, where the 112 uses rod. the holes for the spring and rod are in the same spot though, so i just have to come up with a chain the length of that rod.
-and third, the hub that the drive pulley bolts to is a little different but it doesn't seem to effect anything.
++earlier i said the brake mount was different but i was wrong, they are the same. the belt tensioners can not be swapped either, they use a different size mounting bolt.

i've got the 212 transaxle installed, all bolts in, brakes hooked up (and adjusted tighter), and the drive belt & pulley on. when i had the shift tower off, i noticed rust and other grit inside, so i drained the oil out and put the oil in from the 112 transaxle. after i run it a little while i'll change the oil again. (i just did this last spring with the 112 so the oil is basically new anyway.)

heres a pic after i heated it, the oil was bubbling... after the pic i took the temp w/ my inferred gun and it said 400*! i hope thats not too hot!

I just used a gear puller bought at Harbor Freight for around $20. I didn't have to but you could shoot some Kroil down there to help penetrate and loosen up the grip.

See my thread (page 10) here: http://www.mytractorforum.com/showth...100485&page=10
