    John Deere 345 plastic cam

    I am not able to find the list of John Deere 345 models that had the plastic cam.
    Does this model of JD 345 have a plastic cam? M00345B096215. It is a Kaw. 20 hp. engine.
    Can some let me know where to find this information?
    thanks, Bob

    1999 345s have a steel cam from the factory and a 20 HP engine. The 18 HP engines were the problem children.

    As mentioned, the 18 hp engines had the plastic cam gears, the 20 hp engines did not.
