I've been looking for a 42c deck for my john Deere GT 225 for several years now and I finally found one just a couple miles from home. Had to buy another GT 225 in order to get it though. The PO said he heard strange noises coming from the Hydro and decided to sell. Driving it this evening I didn't hear anything, but the oil wasn't warmed up good. Engine seems to run pretty good and doesn't have blow by like my other GT 225 has. The deck has a bracket broken off of it so it will ne some attention. I'll get it off the trailer tomorrow and start checking things over to see just what I've got.
