    JD 355D restoration

    Bought a JD 355D today for the hood and battery. Paid $300. It has issues, motor mount problems plus a defective transmission. My question is should I fix it? I have a transmission from a 345 so no expense there. Is the 355D special? Maybe a collector in the future? Or should I scrap it out? It has 2300 hours. Thanks

    They are rare,I would fix it 2300 on a diesel is nothing,gas would be different.I've been looking for one for years.

    355d

    Sorry, I am not sure how to post pics. Replaced the transmission today with one I had from a 345. Cranked the engine over but the motor mounts are shot. Motor moved all over the place. Anyone ever replaced the motor mounts? The mower looks just like a 345 until you open the hood.

    Not on one of those but shouldn't be hard,you just have to support it while you change them out.

    Not a whole lot of 355's around from what I've seen. They have a habit of snapping the crankshaft in half though, just ask Gary (mf135).
