  1. 318 38" mower deck on a 314?

    Vintage Lawn & Garden Tractors
    I come into a restored 38" mower deck from a 318, is there any way to fit this to my 314? Both mowers took 38" decks, albeit different models, but I'm not sure just how different they were. Off the top the default lift arms are an obvious mismatch since both the arms and the mounting plates on...
  2. JD 314 Rebuild - Throttle accelerates immediately beyond max after idle RPM

    Vintage Lawn & Garden Tractors
    I've been rebuilding a JD 314 powered with a rebored Kohler K321 in my spare time for the past year. I've got everything back together and wired up and lucky for me - she runs again! When I get it fired up at low idle all is well and it idles around 2000 RPM. The problem that I'm having is that...
  3. 314 Starting Problems

    Vintage Lawn & Garden Tractors
    Hi Everyone, Hoping for some advice given I am not the most electrically inclined... I acquired 2 314 tractors and the original k321 from one of them but not installed. I went through the engine which looks great, added a new starter, coil, condenser, plug, plug wire, cleaned the points, and...
  4. New (to me) 314 for Restoration

    Vintage Lawn & Garden Tractors
    Hi Everyone! I'm relatively new to this forum and relatively new to green tractors (proud Wheel Horse junkie). I picked up a 1023 in January and am in love with the machine but still enjoy tinkering with the oldies. I have always loved the look of the old 300 series tractors with the bump outs...
  5. Control Valve Oil Line Leaking on 314

    Vintage Lawn & Garden Tractors
    For the second time in as many years the top oil line (AM33284) leading into the control valve has begun leaking oil from around the bottom compression fitting. It almost looks like it's coming out from where the compression fitting connects to the line itself (not where the line connects to the...

    Hello, new to tractor forums here. Just got my first lawn tractor. Model 314 John Deere. Was sitting for many years but I was able to get back into working condition. My question for anyone that can help is any information on a snow thrower attachement compatibility. I have a 37A model...

    I'm trying to locate a deck belt for a 46" M00595X mowing deck. Anyone have the part# for this belt or an aftermarket belt? Thanks in advance.
  8. changing old trans/hydraulic fluid over to Hy-gard in a 314

    Vintage Lawn & Garden Tractors
    Bought an early '80s 314 that is still running on the old pink hydraulic/transmission fluid. Recently had to repair one of the hoses coming off the charge pump, and lost a decent amount of fluid before I fixed it (it doesnt even show in the clear tube). I'm thinking this is a good time to just...
  9. Long-time Green owner, looking to add new Green

    New Member Introductions
    I purchased a Model 314 tractor used back in 1985. It was 7 years old and had seen some hard use. I've now had it 29 years, doing all the service myself. At 36 years old, it still starts up every time and goes to work. I mow a lot of rough ground and I'm getting to an age where I need a...
