A couple of months ago a 214 Deere popped up on craigslist the seller said he was confident something internal had broke,he had it at a great price so I brought it home.I just recently got a chance to drop the pan and all I can say is the seller was correct! That's as far as I've gotten into it,things looked good from top side but what little I could see pan side didn't look promising,it appeared there may be a chunk out of the bottom of the cylinder.

Yuck, that's nasty. Sorry to hear it, hope it isn't anything that will keep you from saving the engine.

I got to hear it turn over before I bought it so I went into the deal thinking parts tractor,but I've got to agree it would be nice to be able to save it.

You might have been able to straighten it if it would have just bent.

If it's just a small chunk broken from the cylinder, then it won't prevent using the block.  Often I will just use a dremel & stone, or just a round file to chamfer the edges of the broken out area.  Never had an issue doing this, and done it with chunks missing as deep as 1/2" and 3/4" wide.

From what I can see it's not very big and I won't swear the rod breaking was the cause as I've not found the missing piece,neither in the block nor in the oil.

I don't know much about JDs, but I'd say that rod might be bad...

I like your engine lift though, looks like it worked just fine.
