Traded for me a really sweet 318 the other day! I posted a reply in another thread about some problems I have with it. Have ordered a new needle and seat in hopes to fix the carb issues. Now i need to chase down a hydro problem! When I turn the wheel the transmission slows way down. This is my first deere all hydro GT. Know nothing about this machine yet. I am new to your family and hope one day to be of help to someone else. But for now I need the whole " DEERE FOR DUMMIES" experience! The numbers on my tractor are M00318X 222877. It has the Onan B43G engine. Thats about all I know! Really need some help figuring this girl out so we can mow together. Thanks in advance for any help I can get.
