1969 127. The one that actually started it. Was my uncle and cousin's when the hood got hit by a tree. They asked me to look for a hood at the upcoming Zagray's show in Connecticut and I brought back a hood and a 100 haha. Couple months later it was given to me. Was used as a 4H puller and has the frame widened to fit a 14. Currently waiting on me figuring out how to rebuild Kohlers as it has an odd knock that could be either rod or balance gears and leaks oil out of everywhere.

1962 Original. Bought it off my second cousin, was his father inlaw's and was used for various chores around the 4H camp I went to as a kid. I had it running this spring but it quickly developed a rod knock so yet another one waiting for me to actually get set up to work on engines.

Nice lineup!
You are not leaving that 100 "yard art" outside to rust away are you? That original pan seat is hard to get along with what appears to be the original grille.
As far as that goes, the whole thing looks to be in decent shape, and would make a nice 100 if you just had a motor.
Pan seats a badly rusted loss, grille mesh is weak with the famous notch cut out of it, the shell has gouges and the frame is broken and full of drill holes, front axle is welded into the frame, all wheels and tires are rotted and I'm probably gonna swap the rear-end with the 108's. Looks good from 30 feet away but the newer engine out of the chassis is working way better in my 100

The 100 brings back memories of the first tractor my dad bought in 1964 -it had a 36' Mott hammer knife mower on the front. Also had a snow blower. It had the creeper drive. He traded it in 1979 - the year after I got out of college for the 1450 that I still use today

Got the correct style plow lift bracket on the 100 which let me put the right step back on. Turns out the 127 style bracket doesn't clear the older style step. Had already upgraded to a lift handle off a 125 so I'd have the float button.
