    When cranking, there's no spark until the instant I release the key and it returns to RUN position. If I'm lucky, sometimes it starts at the instant I release the key. Is this simply a bad ignition switch?
  2. Implements & Attachments
    Hi everyone, I recently purchased a JD 4110. I have owned a 318 since new and I have all the implements for it. Is it possible to hook the 48" PTO driven tiller from my 318 to the 4110? I assume I would need some sort of coupler to go from the "male" PTO output on the back of the 4110 to the...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post here as I have just recently purchased an '85 JD 318. When it's running the way it should, it really runs great. But the problem is that it seems to want to surge after a short while of running. The carb is clean, the air intake manifold was very recently...

    Hello, I have an 83 318 with the B43G. Sunday I was mowing for about 45 min, tractor running great, turned around, went about 4 ft, tractor died.

    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...
