Does anyone know where I might find a rear driveshaft coupler for a jd 314?
Also does this use a pin or a bolt? Hole is quite elongated in coupler for pin. Hydro shaft seeems to be ok but coupler loose on shaft. Service manuals or downloads seem to be scarce for a jd .314
I am new to this sight and this type of problem on my tractor. Any help appreciated.
Thanks
larryd

The driveshaft uses a spring pin or groove pin to hold it to the hydro pump. I will take a look and see if i have one here.

Our 317's has a different driveshaft I believe. At least mine looks different than the one I just looked up for the 314.

they are different i was just shooting out a "good luck". pulling the engine is never a fun fleet. rebuilt mine a year or so ago and think pulling the thing was the worst part of the deal.

Go to your local John Deere dealer. Those parts are still available. Couplers look to be from $25 to $30 dollars each.

I believe Joe's outdoor power has some couplers on ebay. Can't remember if for a 314 or 317.

If you check on JDParts.com and enter 314 in the model search you can see the parts diagrams and get part numbers. The new couplers use a conical tipped set screw. The original uses a pin. The 317 uses a drive shaft with u joints and is a different beast entirely.
