314

  1. Can't get fuel to pass after removing gas tank. Air in line?

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Another problem on the 314! I removed the gas tank to replace my check valve seals, drained the last section of fuel line and replaced the fuel filter while I was in there as it has been 4 years since I swapped. Now when I reinstall the gas tank I am not getting any fuel to pump up through...
  2. Installing hydro check valves (314) - torque and lube

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    I found the cause of a hydro leak coming from the top of my transmission - a leaking seal on a check valve. I had the two valves repaird a couple of years back (with new seals), but I think user error caused the leak by torqing them up too much. So I have got new seals, and installed. When...
  3. Erratic 314 transmission - sight tube venting issue?

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    On my 314, I have been struggling a long time with erratic behavior in my transmission. The problem After trying seemingly everything (see below), my transmission acts like a bucking bronco sometimes, yet others it is perfectly behaved. Things are fine in forward and reverse. The trouble comes...
  4. Brake shoe replacement on 314 - how to springs connect to shoe?

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hi, I am replacing the shoes on my 314 as the last ones disintegrated when the springs failed. I am putting back together, but how do the cross springs attach to the shoes? I can't figure out how the short hook attaches: - does it go around the back of the shoe? (if it does that it doesn't...
  5. Mule drive repair - one arm not moving (for 300 series tractor)

    John Deere and Allied Attachments
    I took my mule drive (AM106629) apart last night to replace the plastic pulley bushings, which have disintegrated. I also looked for the reason why my tensioner pointer on part #13 (see part diagram below) never moved. It appears that one of the arms part #13, which inserts into the other arm...
  6. 314 deck belts, plus mule drive bearing replacement

    John Deere and Allied Attachments
    Yesterday I was mowing and made the mistake of tightening up my belt too much. It started smoking a lot and was very hot to the touch. I reviewed and it is obviously damaged (noticeably since I last inspected it. I have a few questions: 1. To replace the belt, what are the parts? I found the 46...
  7. 314 steering rebuild - what are the bearing parts?

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    I'm rebuilding the steering column on my 314 after it exploded open (the connection to the tractor frame was loose and it pulled itself apart). I've found most of the parts under the full assembly AM35339. However, I only see one bearing set #11 in the diagram. All of the internal retainers...
  8. 314 Muffler (K321)

    Want To Buy
    Hi, I'm in need of a 314 muffler for a K321. Part AM37736. I think also fits a 312. I can find them new for $115. Ideally there would be one out there in a solid condition, no rot, no weld breaks, no rattles. I'm in MA and shipping is probably best. Anyone? Thanks

  10. Rear PTO for 314: Solid shaft or splined?

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Would either the solid or splined shaft version of a rear PTO for the 33 tiller work on an early '80s 314? I believe the splined version is the correct version, but seem to recall reading somewhere that the solid version can also be used -- and that some people prefer it because the splines tend...
  11. 314 jerky hydro - relief valves or slop in linkages / absorber

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Problem: My hydro on my 314 does the following: - Very jerky when going from neutral - When neutral is desired, tractor will tend to stop abruptly and go in the opposite direction. Have to mess with the hydro lever to get it to sit still; generally I just turn the thing off. Notes on its...
  12. 314 muffler and side panels

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hi all - I'm new to WFM - as a farm kid who grew up with late 70's through 80's JD garden tractors in family and friends, its a thrill to me the enthusiasm people have for these machines. I found a 314 today- either 79-80. pretty good shape, had been sitting out at local Lawn and Garden...
  13. Looking for Hydro spring M47132 for 314 (beneath free wheel knob)

    Want To Buy
    My next project with my 314 is to fix the creep in the system. While I have the fender deck off I would like to install the missing manual free wheel knob. I have found all of the parts in greenfarmparts.com with the exception of a spring, part #M47132 , which I believe is crucial for the...
  14. Rotten 48 deck, considering options

    John Deere and Allied Attachments
    I have a really badly rotten 48 deck for my 314. I pulled back a sheet of metal that was riveted to the underside (because the pulleys were loose and couldn't be tightened) and found that there's no deck left for the center pulley to mount to the deck - it was mounted to the sheet of metal...
  15. Help!

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hey y'all. I've got two options. I can get a 140 H3 with headlights and everything (no deck) for $500 or a JD 400 with a deck for $700. It may seem like a no-brainer but the 400 is over 3 hours away and finding attachments for them are so hard. I would like to have a mower tractor that I could...

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hello, First post here. I just purchased my first JD, a 314 that had a rebuilt (original) engine. I have run it a number of times with no issues.

  20. 48 deck idler spring

    John Deere and Allied Attachments
    I picked up a 48 deck. H048H 404725M. Off a 314 to use on my 140, the previous owner removed the idler and unhooked the spring. Looking at jdparts it shows there should be a retainer hooked onto one of the carriage bolts that hold the spindle I don't see one of these, is there another spot...
