Hi!

While being frustrated with my 20-some year old Craftsman rider bought on CL for $350 I tried to figure out how I could get another rider, that'll last a while, for cheap. Happened across a 1984 John Deere 316 on CL and did my due diligence (being a millennial and all) to figure out what they were all about. I specifically was swayed by Hammerdown's thread regarding restoration of the 316 and 318 lines and was sold.

I've got some issues I'm going to address in another thread, but for now I'm joining the green team and hopefully will be both an active contributor and avid learner! Don't tell my wife though, she's pretty unhappy I have two riders in the garage now...

Welcome from Central Florida. But I'm confused, I thought millenials had other people do their work? :dunno: No offence!

No problem, we won't tell. You will get used to this situation. A word of advice. Should she ever not be unhappy about anything, then you need to buy a third one or something so you know what she's mad about. Nothing is worse than not knowing.:cheers:

We are here to help. Welcome

dieselshadow - Edited original post with a picture! I also posted in the "vintage" forum with some technical questions I have about it - engine won't turn over and I'm trying to figure out where to next!
