214

  1. Gear Drive Tractors
    I've always thought my 212 steering was stiff, but I never had a point of reference. I tend to be more picky about things than most people. It's stiff, but still usable. A few weeks ago, I drove a neighbor's 214, and it confirmed my suspicions about my steering. The 214 was significantly easier...
  2. Want To Buy
    Hey all - been awhile since I've been on here but I recently bought some land and need a 2nd mower to get it all cut. My dad still has the 210 I used when I was a kid but got rid of the rotted deck. Anybody help me find one? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Gear Drive Tractors
    Hi all, I recently found a steal on CL. Long story short, I'm now responsible for a 214 with electric lift (no engine), 31 tiller + all mounting hardware, 37A blower, and 46 deck. I was mostly interested in the electric lift. I have a 212 which runs great. It currently has manual lift, and...

    I tried searching here and elsewhere to answer this question but couldn't find anything definitive. Hoping y'all can help. My 214 with a 46" deck is long overdue for a blade change (the current blades are more stiletto than machete) and I'm looking at the Oregon Gator options. Blade specs...
  5. Gear Drive Tractors
    I've recently been left a 214 JD when my grandfather passed away - serial numbers seem to lead me to believe it is a 1983. I'm not much of an engineer when it comes to engines and such. After getting it running, I read a lot to learn what some of the parts I had to replace/rebuild did, I now...

  7. Introductions
    I've already posted a few times but thought I should do the polite thing and introduce myself. My name is Brent and I live in south-central Minnesota. I grew up on an acreage and the first motorized vehicle I drove myself was a John Deere 212, which my dad bought new, still has and uses...
  8. Gear Drive Tractors
    The summer of 1988 I was looking through the county fair book, and thought it would be neat to pull the John Deere 214 I had been mowing the farm with for a few years. I was 10, and wanted to be like the other guys that were pulling our farm tractors. The poor old 214 was a 1975 model and blew...
  9. Gear Drive Tractors
    Hi all, I am at the end of my rope with a new-to-me 214. It is a newer model with the electric clutch. It wants to surge and hunt no matter if it is idling or running WOT. I have cleaned the carburetor numerous times, replaced the entire length of fuel line, cleaned the tank and shutoff valve...
  10. General Repair
    I bought a JD 214 from a weekend freedom machine member summer of 2011. Great investment. The member bypassed the seat switch by disconnecting the wire and putting a "u" shaped wire between the pos and neg and wrapping in black tape. While the machine was running I reached under the seat to...

    For those of you who followed my previous thread, this is where I am now. I got the ebay replacement fuel pump working after a little heat and bend. I still get a miss sometimes, but I am now fairly certain that this is an electrical issue. Here is why: 1. Bad Battery- After sitting for a...
