I made a deal today for what I remember to be a nice JD 112. It has been indoors and not running for the past X years. Local small engine guy purchased it from a lady so he would not have to fix it. He said she got it from a guy in guymon who repainted it.
He said it has the Kohler 12hp. So it should look about like this.

Today I paid for the tractor. The owner said we will dig it out on Saturday. The wife tagged along and I had salsa in my beard. Humiliating... but I am used to it.
There is a chance it may have an electric lift.

I hoses it off at the car wash on the way home. My wife named it "old one eye" while it was still on the trailer.
It is cold wet and miserable today so I have yet to see if the engine will turn over or if the electric lift works. Would it be a good idea to tear down the lift and the starter prior to trying them given that it may have been sitting for 10 years or more?
It is 1/12000 112's made in 1973
