    Unhappy 314 Repairs after Fire Damage

    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: Click image for larger version.†

    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!

    Well, if there's anyone that can put it back to original, it's you. Glad it wasn't too bad. Post us some pictures when it's repaired.

    Don't take this the wrong way and I am not trying to be funny but is there such thing as an Amish small engine shop???

    I am not trying to knock their beliefs. To each their own. I just wouldn't expect to see something like that as around here they seem to specialize in barns and furniture. That just seems like someone saying I broke the screen on my cell phone so I took it to the local Amish phone repair shop.

    I do get that there are various groups, Amish, Mennonite and such where they typically all get lumped together. I don't know all the differences but this still struck me as a little odd.

    Anyhow, good luck with the repair.

    So, the Amish just canít have self propelled vehicles, nothing against engines. They pull hay bailers with horses yet the bailer has its own engine on it.

    Interesting, I didn't know they used bailers with engines while being drawn by horses. Like I said, I don't know the differences between the different beliefs and probably lump them all together more than they should be. I guess I would have considered a tractor a self propelled vehicle but if they are just working on the motor I guess that is different and it technically isn't theirs. So, maybe that is another point of distinction.

    Now that I think about it. A lot of campers are made in Amish Country in Indiana. They heavily employ Amish people to build them and they are using modern tools to do the work. Air nailers and such.

    Younger brother and I went to a Farm Day Show for the Amish guessing 20-25 yrs ago. If the item can be pulled behind a cart that has a gas or diesel engine , and some type hyd pump . for use of PTO or hyd lines ,its possible use by the Amish.

    It all depends on the Bishop of that group of Amish.

    Like someone else said it kind of depends on the Bishop.
    I know a lot have a phone and power in their shop but not in their house. If its used for business its ok.
    Back when I was in Lancaster PA we had some Amish in our area that pulled round balers with horses and a cart with a power unit. Made some football shaped bales because you can't weave to make a nice squared off bale lol.

    These people are Amish, across the road is a greenhouse that started out Amish, now probably Mennonites. The greenhouse is on land once owned by my great uncle. A quarter mile to the east is where my mother grew up, it was sold to an Amish family in the mid 1960's.

    What seems strange to me is that some of the Amish farmers in that area have skid loaders, they apparently can't own them, but can lease them!

    There is another greenhouse in our area that we go to that the owner has an 1960's era Case tractor & a Kubota tractor on steel wheels. Not sure of their religion, but they dress similar to the Amish.

    Lowell, I cringed when I read your post in the GM thread about the fire. Youíve had enough of that with your shop! But, the damage looks more superficial than anything and I know youíll have it looking brand new in no time.

    Worked on the 314 some this morning, cleaned & painted the back of the frame, drawbar & drawbar extension. And replaced the sight tube (my hands are way too big for that), had to use my HF extra long pliers to get to the clamps!
