So just aquired my 1st John Deere, tractor is a 77 400.

After getting it home we got it running and started cleaning it up and fixing some of the minor crap that was wrong.

I've never been a JD guy but I thing this is gonna be one of my main work horses.

It's real weird looking in the yard and seeing a green thing as I'm a Bolens guy

Hardly a scratch on it! Someone took pretty good care of it, or hardly used it at all....kept inside maybe? Nice find.

Yep still has the original k series twin with 746 hours.

It's a surprisingly clean machine

Also what oil is used in the hydrostat? And can someone point me in the direction to get a paper service manual.

Hy-Guard Low viscosity from Deere is your best bet.

Member hdg4400 (Harlan) usually has a pretty good idea on the best place for finding manuals for the JD equipment.

Thanks cat385B:

 

I just have a number of garden tractor and attachment manuals, many scanned in as PDFs. Sorry, but I don't have any 400 manuals.

 

An Iowa Member lyall who lives in my hometown, posted a link in another topic that has some manuals.

 

http://www.wfmfiles....wnload/manuals/

 

I haven't looked real hard at the info there, but it's worth a look see.
