    Hi , this is my first post . I just bought a 140h3 at a yard sale
    a few weeks ago . Just started going through things it seem to be
    in good running condition . I got a tiller , snowblower , blade , three
    point hitch and a 48" deck.
    I changed the oil and the transmission oil today
    my concern with the trany oil is it took for ever to fill
    I looked for a vent but can't seem to find it .
    Any help to find it would be appreciated.
    Thx SteveNew to me 69 140-image-jpg

    I looked in JDparts.com in parts cat #1245 for a 140 and found no breather on trans.

    Hi Steve, I have an old 68 140 H1 that has been sitting under a tarp for about 6 years now. Uncovered it last weekend and she started right up where I drove it into the garage. I plan to take my time and slowly restore this grand old tractor and put it to work around my property. I just went through the hydraulic oil change myself yesterday. I put in low viscosity John Deere hyguard. although I think our transmissions are different Sunstrands. I found a tiny breather screen on mine right up from the bottom of the axle housing next to a drain plug which I don't think the H3 has. I also tried to clean it with solvent. I had the same problem as you. It took forever to get the fluid in after the first 2 quarts. I also tried popping the screen out to no avail. I don't have the correct manual for my tractor yet. Guessing our screens are plugged up, because the oil would bubble up and spit at me.. Anyway I need to order the right manuals for my tractor. The engine runs strong and does not smoke but does have a loud tap to it. I also have an old Cub Cadet 108 around the same year at my brother in-laws house. I gave it to him and he never used it. It has been sitting under his deck for the last 6 years. It has the larger Kohler 14 hp in it. I plan to haul it back over here as it has some interchangeable parts. I may even try an engine swap into the old Deere. Looking forward to some pictures and your ventures with the old 140. I plan to strip mine down and repaint it and plan to restore it slowly. Barry

    I had a 140 H3, that is one powerful little beast. I always said it was John Deere's attempt to take a big tractor and shrink it keeping the power of the big one. Of all my previous tractors I miss that one the most, the camshaft shattered while I was snow blowing a 5' drift.

    There is a breather screen I'm just trying to remember where it is (I have the original owners manual that I will check next time I go out to the garage.)
