Have you considered that it might not be the trans? It might be the clutch or the pulley?


It's a hydro and after looking at the parts the motor cartridge has some boogered plungers/pistons.

Does that mean the bore the plunger goes in is boogered, too?

Don't know, haven't cleaned things up and really took a good look at it. The hydro is all apart in a 5 gal bucket. I was digging to the bottom looking for the woodruff key for the lift control. I'm not gonna tackle the hydro 'til I get some other irons out of the fire.

Used to, one could buy a good used hydro for $50 plus shipping, but not these days! BUT, if you can find one with a damaged input shaft like I have a time or 2, usually you can pick them up cheap. Then you take the 2 pumps & build one good one.

Thanks, olcowhand! That's kinda my plan at the moment, to find a donor hydro to get the parts I need. I'll get all new seals and gaskets. As it is I have to pull the axle housing and clean it out good because it appears it sat outside in windy country and there's a ton of dust in the input/pinion shaft opening. If the PO had only stuffed a rag in there it would make my job a lot easier. Well, I sound like I'm crying in my beer so I'll stop right now.

Welcome to the group Mike (from a previous Idahoan now living in OR). In 1985 I bought a used 1978 JD 312 in Twin Falls that has been my main mower and general workhorse for the past 27 years. You will enjoy the 314 I hope.

In another JD forum there was a hydro tranny from a 317 listed for sale for $100 just this past Sunday. I think this might be the same tranny as the 314 - maybe someone can confirm that. Might be worth chekcing out.

Gladly! The later version of this hydro was the same except it used a different input shaft which can easily be swapped. The machines I mentioned are direct bolt-in or plug-n-play repairs. I function under the "kiss" understanding of repairs - Keep it simple (stupid). :laughingteeth:
