I just completed my H3 upgrade on my 314. The directions are very clear. The all the parts the you need in the kit are there except for the valve. Ron the owner is a great person to deal with. I would recommend purchasing this kit.
I'll be doing a H3 upgrade to my 318. I just need to buy some fittings, and the 3 spool valve. I didn't notice it until I dismantled my 317 (for parts), that there was a 3rd hole in the block for mounting the levers. I got a lever for it, and now just need 1) to get my 3 spool valve, 2) fittings, 3) finish my loader project on the 400.
Now that the snow is starting to melt, I have a friend that has a LT155 and it won't move. He thought it might be a belt but it wasn't. He said something about the shaft on top spinning but not moving the tractor. I have not looked at it but he's trying to get an idea of what might be wrong. He already went out and bought another Deere. Thanks for any ideas. Allen
First thing I'd do is check the "push" lever at the rear end of the machine . It is the hydraulic defeat mechanism that lets the tractor "free wheel" to push it when motor is not running . It doesn't take much to make the difference between an operating hydrostat , and not . A small kid fooling around with it , or any similar event that would result in a slight change of position of this lever , can and will , cause what he is experiencing . The lever operating function and directions are listed on a decal of the rear plate . (I think) it is pushed in to operate , or vise-versa . Play with it to see if that does it .
He has decided to get rid of it now. $400 is what he wants with a 48" deck, a front blade(assuming its a 48"), and a grass catcher. He's in Kokomo, Indiana. Does this sound reasonable considering it won't move?
