I received this one several weeks ago in trade for some fixin' on the PO's 212. However, my conscience wouldn't let me call it my own until I knew he had mowed his entire lawn with his without any problems. I had his 212 apart 3 times before I got it right. Shouldn't have trusted that the fuel system was clean. I put a different variator in for him, a new belt, points/condenser, as well as a good fuel system cleaning with new fuel lines and a filter. That finally did it! Now the 214's all mine! However, with over 4000 hours I'm guessing she's due for a rebuild. At least it comes with a cool sounding horn. I should probably just part it out but where's the fun in that? If anyone has a right side engine shield, grill, or plastic shifter plate cover just lying around please let me know. This one's destined for blade work eventually but it's got to look prettier in my eyes first.

Can't help with the needed parts, but I have a 214 also. Just installed new motor mounts in mine. My is the designated snow remover/ plower/ tiller machine. My 110 still gets yard duty.

That's a pretty sweet price with the tiller. That's the one thing I need is a tiller for the back of one of my GTs.

That looks exactly like the 212 I pulled out of my grandpa's field. I hope yours needs less work than mine. I had to rebuild the motor and replace just about everything else. The good thing is once you rebuild that old kohler it will last just about forever. good luck with the restore.

Come on now! You should see the 214 now. I finally got around to pressure washing it. Also, I believe it's nickname has now evolved into the Crudet. :smile1: Get with the times man!

I wish tillers were a dime a dozen. I am still waiting for a decent deal for one for the Massey and one for the Cub.
