New to the site! I bought my first JD, a 112L (obviously) for $350 a few weeks back. The first I've owned myself I should say... we had a couple when I was younger on our farm - a 2130 and a 4020!

As for my 112L I've got it all torn down to the frame to repaint... the fenders/hood and console piece are all redone and I'm just finishing up the frame!

I've got a few questions so I may as well ask here!

The hydrostatic transmission/differential seems to be leaking... I think it's just where the two halves bolt together. Is this simple to pull apart and reseal or is there a how to?

Another thing is I also have an oil leak somewhere on the motor (Kawasaki FB460V) I haven't got it nailed down to one specific spot, is there a common place these leak?

I'll probably start a new thread with these questions anyway... may get a little more views elsewhere!

Thanks!

I guess I way as well post a pic... this was the day after I brought it home. It doesn't look anything at all like that anymore!

:MTF_wel: and thanks for the pics :fing32: To find your engine oil leak just clean the engine off really well and top off the oil and run her. It should show up pretty quick.
