Got the GT14 tonight. This thing is a hoss. I think I'll like it. Someone has put quite a bit of work into this thing. Quite a bit of new parts. The engine runs GREAT and the hydro seems to pull good. I mowed a little strip and the deck is nice and quite. The gas tank does not leak (what you see in the pic is from the cap, it's not orginal) but I did see one little spot that looks like it was repaired. Anyone have pointers on how to preserve plastic tanks? Even if this one is shot I've already got ideas for replacing it.
Things to do:
-cables... both are junk or broke.
-front hubs... one is a little tight so I'm going to pull them apart, inspect and do whatever repairs are needed.
-get a third blade for the deck... the right most blade is gone but the two that are there mow very nice.
-check all fluids.
-go through the wiring... it's a mess.
-the parking brake is not right. not sure what is up with it. I'll post up some detailed pictures when I get time to tear into it.
Things I want to do:
-paint the engine tins.
-give it a good cleaning.
-repair the lights or rig up something new.
-air cleaner, fab up one like my JD has.
