  1. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    I have a 318 that I finished restoring before the winter hit. I decide to use it this winter with my 49 snowblower. I used it about a week ago in our first snow storm in MA, and it worked OK. I definitely need to add the paddle mod to it. I know people like pictures, so here are a few of...

    I recently picked up a 318. I was wondering if they ever came with a factory fender tool box? I am sure they can be bought and installed. Just wondering ? Mine has it on there, and the guy I bought it from does not remember his father (Who originally owned the tractor) installing one.

    Anyone ever put alternative coatings on bottom of wheel wells and foot rests of metal seat pans? I welded the cracks, cleaned and wondered if there are better alternatives to just multiple coats of paint for the underside. Is undercoating a viable alternative? Probably not available in JD...

    I am needing a little help with my 89 420. I have searched through 20 pages on here and have found similar problems but no solutions. I bought the 420 this winter with around 800 hours on it. It starts easy and runs great. After about 30 minutes of mowing if I go from forward to reverse to...

    I have a non JD full scale category zero loader installed on my 322 and it has been great for the last 7 years. I recently had to take it off so the JD dealer could install a low hour (400 hours from a 332) used steering hydraulic valve/steering column. I picked the 322 up yesterday and...

  17. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    I thought this may be a fairly common problem, but I did not find anything specific in previous threads. I assume there must be a way to either adjust the lever or the position of the neutral start switch. I know there is a torsion spring that is supposed to pull the lever over against the...

    I have an opportunity to get a quick hitch setup and 46 blower for my 318. I would be replacing my tall chute 49 blower. I like the idea of being able to upgrade to the 47 blower in the future and I would eventually replace my 54 4 way blade with a quick hitch style too. Is this a good...
