This 1977 John Deere 312 popped up on Craigslist last night, It was his fathers that had passed away and he was selling his stuff here in MO to move back to CA. Runs and drive great, No Smoke at all, very clean underneath, didn't see any oil leaks. Paid $200.00 for it. The only thing that he said was he couldn't get it to move. I hoped on it and disengaged the brake pedal and drove on my trailer. He looked a little shocked and I'm sure he was thinking I could have asked more for it.
Picked up a cheap 312

Good deal.......I did that with a VW bug one time. Guy said it was dead..wanted $10 for it (scrap value back then)....I looked under and saw that the battery cable had rotted off the starter. Bought it, hooked a chain to it and popped the clutch, started up and drove it away. Made a great field car.
