Just got my 1st John Deere 210 today its a project but unlike my other one a
Sears SS/16 its not been living outside in the weather for years engines not
seized and full of water nor is the transaxle, the brakes and parking brakes even
still work has a working deck still on the tractor its probably 90% complete a
few little parts missing and yes I know all those little parts add up


It has a new used K241 Kohler engine the original engine blew up suppose to run
ok the man I bought it from is pretty honest would not even let me pay for it
till I got the engine running, he wanted it out of his garage it had been In
there for a few years, his cousin started working on it about a year ago and put
the used engine on it but unfortunately he has passed away and never got to
finish it.

I was looking threw the manual section and found one for a 110 but no 210 looks
like something is not right where the engine cradle bolts to the frame engine was
dropped down in the rear I have it rigged up so its sitting level would not want
to try and start it like that might even be something missing that bolts to the
cradle I am sure a lot of stuff got misplaced or threw away over the years, here
are a few photos of my little green tractor

Good looking tractor. I see what you mean about the engine. The muffler looks real close to the hood.

Rubber Isolators on the mount plate in or on wrong side of the metals?  You would think they would go in one way, but later find they did a diff way. I found that on a Bolens I was working on. OR, those Isolators can be bought in diff thicknesses, maybe bought wrong sized ones for one one end? Would think the metal mount plate would not change, and only changeable at those mount Isolators, so think take a look there.

I had a 216, the ears on the rear of the engine cradle sat directly over the isolators. Maybe wrong cradle?

Yes sir I found one in a little better shape than the last one and for a good price,
I will probably wind up taking the engine off and see if I can figure out that cradle if
its even the right one.

the rear ears on the cradle like you said looks like they should and would sit
on top of the rear isolators not how its sitting now its bolted to the front now
and to short to reach the rear mounts ?

You may be right on the wrong cradle it might have came with the engine that
was on a different brand tractor I found a manual for 200-210-212-214 but it
did not have a good photo of how the engine mounted or a diagram of the mounts.
I might need a cradle from you parts are hard to find around here I will look
here locally 1st, if you have a different manual let know I'll send you a email
address to send your manual to, thank you for your help

I think I will go ahead and take off the deck so I want be tripping over it and maybe start cleaning and
and rust killing it make sure the bearing are good sharpen the blades put a little paint on it no big
hurry long as I get it done for next year might take that long to get the tractor running, hope not

Something doesn't look right as far as the engine goes. Are you sure it's a 10hp?

I stay away from the greenies, but something doesnt look right. What is with the tapered shaft and goofy looking pulley, is that stock?
