My guess is either LX100, LX200, or GT series. I don't think it could be a 100 or 200 like 165, 185, 265, 285 because they don't have a tensioner handle on the left side. They also have round hole brackets for the front draft arms to attach with a bolt. The LXs and GTs have the big u-bolt style front draft link that attaches with the hook style front bracket. Also the LX and GTs use the J-Pin with the spring on the back vs the 100 and 200 have an L bracket with a hairpin.

Control, U should work. Then when you finish the part you want underlined, hit Control, U again. MS Word should have a button to press for U.

Thanks, Brownie919 I think you called it...

Looks good to me. A guy sold it to me as a deck that will work on a 318, he is a JD expert but I think he just wanted to get rid of a deck. Me being new to these smaller JD mowers and 318 decks being pretty rare I had no clue so he had a sucker...

I think its a decent deck though but I need to sell it. If any of you all are interested let me know or I will get get it posted in a bit.

Thanks again.

I'd go with the LX172, LX173, LX176, LX178, LX186 and LX188 series.

It looks very similar to the 48" deck off my recently sold LX186.

Unless it's just not in the pic there's a linkage missing that'll be needed to use the deck. It attaches the brackets on the front of the deck to the front frame of the tractor.

Of course, if someone already has that and needs a replacement deck for what ever reason...

Note on the above deck one of the brackets rusted off and the center anti scalp roller is missing. Made a heck of a noise when I ran over it. The 38 inch deck didn't have that center roller.

IF the 318 deck is rare, why not alter that one to mount on yours? Can't be that tough to modify.

Great idea but that I think is a pretty large skill set, there is a contraption that makes the 90deg turn from the front drive pulley to the bottom to the deck. That would be a job to fab up not to mention the brackets to make the deck work. Even if I could pull if off, I am sinking as it is around here and I have a job... That kills me..

I hooked up with a guy that got me straight with a 318 parts tractor that had a deck. So now I even have more junk and my wife is not speaking to me, win win..

I have that deck and can say with near-certainty it comes from the older 100 series Deeres. There was a 160, 165, 180, and 185. These were sold in the 70s/early 80s. The lawn tractors had the Kawasaki engines with forced lubrication. Here is a pair of photos of the one I still have (a 160).

Look how the front of your deck hangs from the tractor. The draft arms have a bolt that goes through a round hole in the deck. His has hook brackets that hangs from a big u-bolt style draft arm.
You have a handle on the left side. He has a tensioner.
I can't see the rear draft arms but I'm assuming you have a link with a 90 degree pin that a hairpin goes through. He has j shaped pins with a spring.
