Working on a Deere service manual.  Found one on eBay but not sure if it covers my later 314 so I sent the seller a question.

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:

if this new job ever gets going (I am beginning to wonder if getting a govt job here in IL was a mistake)  I may be looking to get someone to do some bodywork on both my 2 door 78 Fury, and my 80 Volare, as well.... I do mechanical better than I do bodywork LOL

Do you have a service manual for this?  Any suggestions for adjusting the Walbro carb in there?  Me no likes Walbro carbs...

walbro?  that carb is not original from 82, that's for sure....   they arent any harder to adjust than the old carter Model "N"'s just teh screws are in a slightly different location.  I have (2) 12 HP Magnums here  same year and all (both are late 80s engines)  1 has the regular Kohler carb the other has the Walbro.

Both the 120 and this 314 have a Walbro and it sure looks original to me.  My reading over at wfm  pretty much confirms they are original on both as there is much discussion of swapping to the Kohler carbs.  I think it was hit or miss when it came to carb choice... I got hit with the less desirable choice.  :deadhorse:

 

I also picked up the Deere service manual yesterday for JD 300/316k/312/314.  That should be helpful when getting it back up and going.

Considering the snow we are to pick up later this week I think the 314 will bumped up on the priority list and be moved to blower duty.  I need to pick up 1/4" fuel line and clean the tank to get it going.  That will take less time than finishing up the wiring on the 120.

Service manual is here!  Got it for $34 to my door. Seller shipped it Media Mail from Illinois and it was here in two days and just in time for the snow storm.

Just dropped the 314's front wheels off at the local service station to remove the old tires and install new valve stems.  Dad got me some new tires for the front end.  Once those are mounted and the fuel system is cleaned the 314 will be ready for a test drive.

Getting ready to mount new tires. For $5 the local service station removed the old tires and install new valve stems. Definitely saved my time and fingers.

Tires on!  While messing with it Dad and I think that the axle bushing in the center pivot point is bad.  Looks like the bushing and spacer will be less than $10 from Deere.  Add that to the "to do" list.

Hey Trav1s, can you post a picture of the starter solenoid? I'm trying to figure out where these 2 wires go.

 

The red one is coming from the starter switch and the purple is coming from the PTO switch. The wiring diagrams i've seen don't

 

match up to what i'm seeing on my 314.

ETA: The starter, carb and starter solenoid where missing from my 314 when i got it , so i am only guessing right

 

now where everything goes.

Got the fender pan off today after a bit of garage rearranging. Removed the pan to change the fuel line and clean out the tank before adding fuel. Found some wear in the driveshaft as many cautioned. It was really crusty under there too. I will pull the shaft and rebuild the carb later this week.
