If its been awhile since you have had the fender deck off of your Deere, you should take a look. I knew my 140 needed cleaning, so I pulled the deck off today.

 

I used Mean Green detergent, and a few nylon brushes to losen up the crud. It should run a lot cooler now.

My 120 was the same way. THe 314 was even worse!   Definitely worth the effort.

It amazes me how cruded up some of the tractors are when they come in.  I usually take them out side and use shop air and at least blow the debris off but the next time I see it, it is right back to the way it was or worse.

Yeap I've never gotten one with a decently clean hydro. People just don't maintain like they should. I deep clean at least once a year.
