You might want to see to others have taken off the belly screen , my 1983 318 was removed when I bought it in '85 , I'm thinking it more of a pain to clean the grass out . On the deck I trimmed some of the sides and center of the belt guards because the grass would get inside and they had to be removed just to clean under them . Now you just use compressed air . Maybe the newer ones are a better design , Al
Also need to get a belly screen, mine is missing.

That's some very good info, Brian. Didn't know all this about the 318. Thanks.
We don't see many of them up here. For genuine GT's of that era we see mostly Bolens and MF with some Cub Cadets and then JD is a distant last. For newer tractors JD are very popular. It probably has to do with the dealer situation back in the day.
