Nice! You have the reflectors, hydro gauge, original seat with the adjusters on the mount and it looks like an amp meter on the dash. It looks solid. Congratulations.

Really good shape for 30 year old tractor! Seller had receipts for nearly $200 in parts he had put on, including new deck spindle bearings. Only had time to drive it around the yard once last night, out to the farm today. So maybe tomorrow I can check it out a little closer! :D ~~ grnspot

If you have any questions or concerns let me know. I have been deep into repairing mine since I got it in April. Yours certainly looks in better condition than mine. Hopefully it has been well maintained and won't need much work.

Mowed with it this morning, worked great for the first hour, then started sputtering. Choked it & it ran well enough to get it back to the house. Went out afternoon & finished mowing, just as I was finishing up, sputtering again, loosened the gas cap, helped for just a little bit, then had to choke it again to get it back to the shed. Took the deck off, as I won't normally use it for mowing, started back up & put it in the shop!

By choke helping, it about has to be a fuel problem. Most likely still some dirt in the tank plugging the screen. When I get back to it, new gas line & in-line filter are in order. Maybe more tank cleaning!

Overall, very happy with it, don't blame the seller at all! It's in my shop now! :D:D:D ~~ grnspot

Good to hear it is running. I think you have it diagnosed, but wouldn't rule out something in the carb bowl. Do these have a fuel pump or gravity fed?

Fuel pump, seller has gone through carb & pump, but more may have gotten past the screen in the tank! ~~ grnspot

That is a very nice looking 314. Congrats on the purchase. Too bad on the repairs. Hope your shop has good results.

I hope you get it sorted out. I had some issue like that when I got mine. There were a number of small things keeping it from running properly. My main problem was the head gasket. You might want to just have a peak at the outside of the cylinder and head while you have it in the shop. Mine was an oily mess and you couldn't really see it with all the covers on. I also couldn't seem to get enough fuel flow through an inline fuel filter. I switched to the little round screen type and that seemed to help. My fuel pump may be weak.
