    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 am wondering if anyone has the part numbers for installing a plastic 46" deck chute? Searching I wasn't able to find a good list of parts other than a 2009 list. Mine is missing the chute entirely and finding out parts, installation procedure and potentially photos would be greatly...

    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...

    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...

    Looking for a worn out, nasty, dented, rusted out 49 blower. If it fell off a truck, it'll probably still work for me! I have a project that I am looking to use the mount (onto a 318), lift cylinder, and belt-to-shaft drive elements. within 100 miles of Red Wing MN would be preferred (55066)

    I just picked up a 1985 318, with the goal to rebuild the B43G engine, and maybe the tractor, but haven't decided on that yet. Also got a 46 deck and a 49 snowblower with it also. This is my 2nd 318, I needed a new project. The engine runs, but surges. The tractor did sit for a while so the...

    I repowered my JD 318 (late 1980's) with a Honda GX620 v-twin about 8 or 9 years ago using parts from THE Co. It's been running like a champ and the engine is still strong but the front PTO finally quit. The old PTO is an Ogura (made in Japan) part # MA GT JD8CU1. It bolted right up to the...

    Gents, Im trying to troubleshoot a starting issue, but before I can do so, the machine is stranded where the wife shut it off in the lawn. I put the control lever in the neutral detent and am trying to push/pull the machine to the shop but it acts like there is a hydraulic lock and the wheels...

    Wont restart after dying, but starts right up after cooling off for 15 or 20 minutes. Did not do it with the snow blower over the winter. Any ideas? Probably spark? Thanks., Fred
