I have a '76 210 with a kohler motor that has a broken connecting rod. Would it be possible to just swap with a different motor? if so what motors are easy to swap?

yes. an engine from a 212 and 214 will bolt in. those are the k301aqs and k321aqs respectively. Be careful of the year though. some of the later model 200 series had different mounting points after they introduced the 216 with the k341aqs in 1979. So anything from 75 through 78 should be a direct bolt in.

Brian, Bika, 1977 was the last year for the one-piece base.

You can use the later engine if you get the two-piece cradle with it. The PTO on the 1978-1981 was better than the early model as well.

a. I believe all 21x series Deere’s are the same other than the engine so should work as long as it is outfitted with the correct oil pan.
b. When you say out put are you referring to flywheel bolt patterns (which are unused on 21x’s) or the crankshaft diameter?
c. Please consult a spellchecker and/or proofread.
d. Generally reviving decade old threads isn’t encouraged.
Hopefully that helps in your repower project.
Also welcome to WFM!
