I did it. Picked up a complete 314 that ran when it was parked. Also has a model 48 deck and wheel weights. carb was removed last week to rebuild but the previous owner gave up.  The seat is great, the steering wheel is beautiful, the hood is nice, and the sheet metal is straight.  Serial number is 192,xxx which puts it as an early 82.  The fender pan does have some light rust through where the paint is thin.  Once it is going I will debate a repaint...

Priorities?  More projects = better :smilewink: 

White fury gets paint next month by my cousin in Ohio.  Dad is dragging it back later this month.  This one is a tinker toy that I want to get running.  Once that is done I will decide what to do with it.  I already have the new points/condensor that I removed from the 120 when I did the solid state conversion.  All it needs is a carb kit and a battery to run.  From what I can tell so far the wiring harness is untouched.  As for the repower - I think a 383 is a bit much.   :poke:

2.2 turbo would be appropriate on an 80's machine  :poke:

Looks pretty good. It has the lift rod on the back for a tiller or a sleeve hitch. It doesn't look like it has the hydro fluid gauge on it. Make sure that you check that to make sure there are no leaks from the gauge port at the bottom of the hydro.

Story to the best of my ability...

 

Always crusin' CL for Deere products.  I found this one and ended up with it.  It was used in western Iowa on a farm until it was parked 4 or 5 years ago when replaced by a 425.  The first owner (I believe) gave it to the guy I got it from.  He wanted to rebuild the carb but gave up on it because he does not have the time to mess with it.  He is a veterinarian and we are way into calving season out here.  The soonest he could get to it would be mid to late April.  At this point the cash was more appealing than the result of the work.  He told me numerous people have contacted him about it.  Why me?  Not sure but I am excited about it.  The 120 is close to done so I can redirect my focus on getting it going.  Once that has been accomplished I will consider upgrading to H2 as I have the stuff to do it on the shelf in the garage.  

 

I was told that the first owner used it for lawn work with the deck and a tiller which was sold some time ago.  When I get it in the garage I will look it over more.  I do know that the engine is free and it has compression.  Add fuel and fire to see what we get.

Travis, Great GT, :thumbs:  I loved mine and wish I still had it. Did you get the side panels for it?

 

What's the back story, inquiring minds want to know !! :smilewink:

Confession here: I really enjoy the hunt and move from mess to masterpiece. I still plan on grabbing the side tag 110 but do love a good hydro which is why the 314 came home with me. Issues? Probably....
