Price depends on area and condition.  I have watched them sell for $200 to $1000+ out here. 

 

 

As for that exhaust leak - could be head gasket leaking at the exhaust valve.  Not that gaskets are expensive or hard to do but still knock money off for that.

I have some more questions...

On my new 300 there is only one set of remotes (hookups) on the front end. But the mower deck lift is hydraulic. Is the mower deck lift using the other set of remotes?

What is the hydraulic capacity? Like gpm and total amount of fluid excluding the transmission.

Would it be able to use a 4 foot wide 7 S tine cultivator? I don't want to strain/overwork the transmission...

I assume plowing would be fine... I've seen a 318 run a 2 bottom semi-mount.

30" wide atv disk with about 100 pounds of weight is ok?

Are the onboard stock hydraulics capable of running continually? Like for if I were to run a hydraulic powered rotary broom or similar...

Have you verified by the serial number it is a 300?  From what I have read and encountered the 300/316k machines had H2 systems with two levers and hydraulic ports on both sides. 

The H1 machines of the closed frame 300 series were the 312 (some had front ports and others did not - I have one of each) and the 314.  A simple hood swap could have taken place in the past.

 

WFM info on the 312:
 

 

Manufactured briefly from 1977 to 1978, the model 312 provided a basic, no frills 300 series tractor with 12 HP Kohler engine, no engine side panels, no ammeter, H1 hydraulics, narrower rear tires, and a single brake pedal for both rear wheels. Headlights were an option on the 312.

 

WFM info on the 314
 

 

In 1979 John Deere began manufacturing models 314 and 317, respectively. Very much the same as previous hydrostatic models, the 314 and 317 represented the "basic" and "deluxe" versions of the 300 series hydrostatic tractors from 1979 until the 1983-1984 time period. One design change that is readily apparent was relocating much of the steering gear to the left side of the chassis. The 314 was an upgraded version of the 312 that reintroduced engine side panels on the "basic" tractor, increased horsepower to a 14HP Kohler engine, and standard installation of the wider 23x10.50x12 rear tires.

It has the pair of control levers for the remotes. I will ask the guy I'm buying it from for the serial number...
