So the guy accross the street took the rear end of his Working Ford apart to fix his Craftsman. It did not work and he cant get any thing back together again so there it sits for about three months.:confuse:

Kenny, It's pretty rare for a GT to have 3 circuits. The newer ones only had 2. Having 3 allows you to have an independent deck lift and also have a blade with lift and angle without any issues. I had a x475 that had 2 circuits and in the winter when I had the blade on, I had to disable the 3pt. hitch with a diverter valve so that the angling would work without a delay. The 3pt/deck lift shared one of the levers with the blade angle. So having 3 circuits is a really nice feature and may be unique to the 140H3 .


Not that rare for the JD line Because the 400,420 & 430 had Triple spools:thumbs:

Can you upgrade to a three way or do you need to upgrade the pump as well? Is the effort not worth the pay back?

This Guy make kits for H3 conversion Auxiliary Hydraulics He
doesn't Make them as often anymore the occasional Kit still He is worth contacting Because He just made a H3 conversion for a Member on another forum I'm a Member of in the last Month or so for a 316Onan from a H1 to a H3.
You don't Need to Upgrade the Pump at all Both version were run off the same transmission and it's worth the effort:thumbs:

I did not know that. I knew that the newer Super GTs did not have 3. I would like to have at least 2 for my 314 so I can run a 54 blade which I already have. The second spool is the one with the float so with 1 circuit you can't easily use the blade for snow removal.

JD Brian I would suggest talking to Auxiliary Hydraulics as well just to get a Idea for your 314 conversion.:thumbs:

Brain,
Another thing you may consider is finding a 317 with a blown motor. It would have the complete H2 set up with the lines and front bumper cover you would need. Plus if you ever wanted to convert to the dual brake set up you would have the parts. It maybe cheaper in the long run. Just an idea.

Thanks for the suggestion Mark.

In some parts people seem to be knee deep in old JD's, but unfortunately its not so here. There was a guy looking for a new engine for a 317 a while back and I told him to email me if he decided to sell instead of re power, but I didn't hear from him. I would really like to get the 2 sets of front outlets (My 314 has 1 set). I am thinking of a linear actuator for a 3 pt. hitch if I ever get to that or maybe just get a diverter valve. If I could get the 2 circuit valve and lever/linkage the rest of the plumbing is not a problem. I have seen it done with hoses all the way instead of hard lines. There is a local chain store called Princess Auto that makes high quality lines for really good prices.
I have the 54 front blade so I really want to be able to use it on the 314. I actually use it on my 2320, all 3000lbs of it. It's a bit narrow but works Ok. The hitch is taking a beating with all that weight behind it.

Nice looking 140. I let one slip right through my fingers a few weeks back. I was too slow to buy it....
