I took my non-starting 1980 314 to an Amish small engine shop recently for repairs. Shop owner called yesterday evening to say it was running, but, there was a problem, they'd had a shop fire & my tractor was damaged, paint, seat & taillights. He promised to "make things right"! I went over this morning to pick it up, stopping by Orscheln's on the way to check seat & taillight prices, I'd checked the tire prices online also. The damage wasn't too bad:
He paid me for the new seat, taillights, paint & new tires, I'm satisfied. These things happen, I made my living for 29 years putting out fires! Apparently, an employee was cutting something with a torch & set a bucket of parts cleaner on fire. Instinctively, he threw it out the door, where my tractor was setting!
