Brand new to this site as well as a JD tractor and especially the Hydro-static transmission. I am thrilled with the amount of info I've gotten here already. I have just got my hands on a 1981 C314K with the 14HP Kohler (K321 I think). Sorry for such a stupid question but I had little to no luck getting any info while I was trying get this thing started or even rolling,(my release knob turned out to be stripped), and into a van. An older thread I read seems to confirm what I began to suspect. That is, the foot pedal on the right side, that I assumed was a Brake, is actually only for the Parking brake. And all control, F/R, speed and also braking is done from the control lever.
Question 1: I hoping by looking at the info on my tractor someone can confirm this is indeed the case for my 314.
Please forgive my ignorance but if i could have gotten a hold of any info I feel I'm mechanical enough to have figured it out.
Question 2; I am hoping there is someone here who has and is willing to share any info/manuals on the 314.
As it is thanks for the most info I've been able to find so far. Great Site!
