    It finally came home!

    Finally, after waiting since october, I finally went and picked up my 317.
    Pros: The motor is mostly there. Only one tire is acutally flat. The motor is completely dead with a hole at least 2x5 in. in it.
    Cons: The hydro lift levers barely move. The fenders have 4 massive rust holes in them. The pedals have a hard time returning.

    So I checked the 317 out a bit better, and it turns out it's rough, but definetely good. The steering seems to be tight, and the driveshaft is apparently fairly new. Amazingly, the series I lasted over 2000 hours! The hydraulic lift levers are pretty tight and barely move to the lower position. The hydro release seems to be stuck. The paint on the fenders is really bad, and they have 4 rusted out holes where a cab was bolted on.
    So, all 4 of the little rubber parts are missing from fenders of the tractor. Where can I find new ones?

    I don't really have a close JD dealer. I don't even think they have parts for tractors older than 20 years old or so. Looking for where to find them online.

    You can look up part numbers at John Deere parts, and order from your Deere dealer, or online at places like Greenfarmparts.

    Some parts are no longer available new, and then you are limited to the used market.

    My local changed hands, to big corporate hands, and the parts dept. is a shambles. I have been ordering and getting good/accurate service from Green Parts Store online for a few months now. You just have to sort through parts diagrams in the online catalog, add them to your cart, then identify your dealer when you go to checkout...so you get the latest accurate prices. And of course make good use of the classifieds on this site...some things you can't find anymore, esp. online.

    Are you talking about the fender isolators? I was able to find replacements for them and the engine mounts on my 110 at Mcmaster Carr.
    Good luck with fixing up the 317. I had a blast doing mine.

    Yeah, the rubber isolators. The 317 is missing all them.

    What's the thread size?
