John Deere Lawn Tractors & Late Garden Tractors

All not listed in the above including all L and D series as there was a L100, L110, a L120, and a D140. I see a lot of ads on CL that want to leave off the L and D portion and they are Late Models.

  1. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    This is inspired from GrandpaJay's modded 400, my work pales in comparison to his talent and skill level. I also used some ideas From LukeL. I finally started this after a couple years of collecting parts. I bought a few versions and settled on one from an LT series Deere. Parts from other...
  2. Any hints on how to disassemble a 318 drive shaft? The technical manual implies that you can just slip the caps out of the housings but mine can't be pressed from one side to remove the cap on the other. The fit is super tight and the joint binds up before the other side is out of the yoke...

I have been trying to make a sledding hill in my backyard for my daughter. This is first time really using it and was in very thick heavy snow. The clip must have...
