    I need to repair the flange that attaches the muffler to the engine. Do I need anything besides a new gasket to seal things?

  6. 314-8 blowing fuses

    My 314-8 is blowing fuses when I try and start it. I was having problems starting it before. My dad took a screw driver to jump to points to start it. Now I'm not sure if he ended up messing up a relay or some other part. I noticed the plug going to key looks a little melted. Not sure If I can check key with volt meter or the plug to the key.

  9. 315-8 Servicing PTO

    I'm looking for some info on how to service the PTO Clutch on a 315-8. This is my 1st electric clutch tractor and I was wondering how I remove every thing to grease the bearings.
  10. Has anyone here ever seen a tractor they really like that is not for sale and you made a offer to buy or said if you ever want to sell to give me a call? I saw a really nice one yesterday driving to work. I have passed this house for years. The tractor looked like a 520. Doesn't look like it was used to cut grass and was just pulling a wagon.
  11. 315-8 PTO Clutch

    The chirping is continuous after turning on the PTO. It just started. I'm going to have to make sure the right belt is on the tractor. My dad has been switching different size decks around on tractors. Should double check and make sure the right belt is on. I tightened the belt, but it looks like it might have a little play in it.
  12. 315-8 PTO Clutch

    Yes I have an electric clutch. I have a chipping sound with I turn on the PTO.
  13. 315-8 PTO Clutch

  14. 1594 Belt

    Thanks. I figured it was for a 48 in deck, because it was a little big on the 42 inch deck.
  15. 1594 Belt

    I have a 1594 belt and I don't know what it is for. I have 42 inch side discharge decks with baggers and 42 inch rear discharge decks. I don't find 1594 when I look up belts for those decks.
