Immersed in Tractors
I'm thinking about purchasing a John Deere 314 garden tractor to pull with. 16hp Kohler engine in it. Would this be a good tractor to pull with? Anything I should be worried about?
Anybody have a diagram showing these?What Travis said. If I were using one for pulling I'd solid mount the engine and beef up the couplers/ isolators on the drive shaft. The Dana rear end is strong on these but you should check the wheel bearings before buying. They wear and it shows up as end play in the axle. You need to lift the rear end to check this. The price of the bearings from JD is about 100$ a pop. There must be a cheaper way to repair them. It's something you'd want to have in good shape if using one as a puller.
