got the 1997 JD 214 ( series number 0964XXM) off Craigslist today.  it has been on Craigslist for several days

had to drive around 80 miles one way

we talked and he came down in the price

he did not have the side panels. tires are good

drive it around his yard - ran okay

 

it came with a 39" and 47" decks

the 47" deck has a few holes in the top

 

got home and took the 39" deck off to check it out. has not been cleaned for a while

clean it  up and hear it the pile that came off

P1010403.JPG

 

so I took it all apart - because it need to be fixed and painted

 

 

why do people not try care of their things?

I guess some just do not care

 

and why do they do stupid things like this

P1010399.JPG

 

they cut the button off the flywheel shield and the broke the end of crank shaft and welded the flywheel back on

 

I am planning to take the JD 214 all apart and check it all over and fix what needs to be fixed or replaced

 

some body painted it years ago and now the paint is coming off.  they do not sand it at all before painting it

 

it is going to be fun working on it

all in all it is in good to above fair shape - so it is going to be good one after I am done with it

Nice find, looks like flywheel nut broke off with the shaft so welded, very common, have repaced cranks because of it.

Same with deck, either don't know or don't care, looking forwards to the restro :thumbs:

Is that fish supposed to be a cup holder or is that the new way to lube the pulley sheave between the primary and secondary drive belts?

I didn't know that breaking the crankshaft off at the nut was a problem , does this happen what somebody is trying to remove the nut  ?

Alc - you can brake the nut off the crank shaft by hitting the nut

first you have to have it loose and hit the nut

that is how it get broke

 

if they break the end of the crank shaft for the nut they can cut it off and grind it down and drill a hole and tap in the end of the crank shaft and put a bolt it.  then it will hold the flywheel. 

 

Travis - somebody replaced the steering wheel with a chrome with wood.  it is not to bad the steer, but it is going back to a Deere steering wheel
