Found a gt14 that needs hydro pump rebuilt along with a 48" deck, 3 point hitch, tiller, and rear mount generator for $500 and no one has jumped on the deal.. what am I missing here? :o:think:

Hydro pump rebuild can be expensive. That would be my guess.

I'd be quite interested but I'd gather more info on the hydro repair.  Lots of info on this site too!

The power unit on the gt-14 is sundstrand 90-2062.  I have rebuilt several of these and MAY be able to service this one, depending on its condition. 

for further etails, send me an off-site email....  my email address is:

You can use a hydro unit from an Electro or Charger with a few simple steps to change out the drive gear. Too far away for me or I would jump on it.

It's for sale on the "Garden Tractor Junkies" Facebook page. Located in noblesville Indiana. Thanks for your input Dave! And the pulley I got off of you worked perfect! I'm gonna have to think on this one and see. Gotta make some room in the stable if I wanna bring anything else home!

A hydro rebuild sometimes only means the springs in the acceleration valve. That's not bad at all.

 

$500 seems like a great price. If that photo is accurate, I don't see how you could lose money, even if you find it's a dog, you could part out everything and probably make money.

I just feel like there's something fishy! It's been for sale since may at that price

   It looks like you are only a half hour away. Just go look at it.  Start it and run it and then ask the GT experts here about it

 

 It better start and run for the asking price.  I would not hold my breath, because it has been around for a while

 

 If it does not because it "needs battery", then yeah, may be fishy.     Sellers often say they have a great tractor, but YOU can fix it easily when it does not run. That is when they are hiding something

 

That is why I bring a battery and jumper cables every time i look at one. Take a ignition key as well

 

 Maybe all that is wrong with it is the screw is in the "tow' position, Maybe the drive key is not in the transmission pulley It is possible the seller inherited it and knows nothing about the tractor and if so, you just stole it

 

Good luck.

Well, yeah, it's old, and it isn't Attach-o-Matic, so it's hard to find implements, or parts. For instance, the springs I needed to fix my hydro, I had to buy from a guy that had a special run made. 

 

But, there is only so much that can be broken on it, and every part of it is sellable on here or ebay for fair prices. For instance, the three point hitch is a very popular item that people seem to like for it. Probably worth at least $200 complete. That seat looks pretty good. If no tears, that is worth something. I do notice the particularly bad paint job on the wheels. So you may get out there and see it's a crude paint job, over existing rust. Best thing to do is just see if it runs, find out what the issue with the transmission is. If it runs, but has trouble going in one direction, like forward, but goes backwards fine and the rest of the hydraulics work, that is an easy transmission fix, just the acceleration valve spring.

I've tried contacting the seller two different methods with no reply. Guess it was too good to be true

Your story doesn't quite add up to me.

To begin with, Wheel Horse Junkies is not a sales or "what's it worth" page. So mentioning that doesn't hold much water for me.

Anything that gets posted there for sale gets taken down pretty quickly.

You don't cite a link or a post.........and I can't find it.......even on the sister site which allows sale postings, Wheel Horse Garden Tractors and Parts.

 

I've owned a first year (1969) 1-7741 GT 14 since about 1980.

I follow this stuff pretty closely and there are GT 14s for sale here in northern Indiana, but the one you mention is an unknown to me.

I need more relevant info in the form of an actual listing to give you my 2 cents.

 

Regards,

Steve

You can switch the GT14 to newer attach-a-matic pretty easily. Front and mid mount brackets.

Here is a screen shot of the listing. It's also posted in the Facebook "marketplace" if you change your area to Noblesville you should be able to find it quickly! Still no reply from seller

No luck here.

You are working from a phone.

I work from a keyboard and a PC.

I can find NOTHING about Garden Tractor Junkies on FB.

C'est la vie.....

Someone has it set as a secret group for some reason. I'm not sure how to join honestly

      Hi. I'm Chaplain Manny. I was wondering if you supply the decals for the gt14, the kohler k321 engine? 
      If you do, could you give me a quote, and tell me how long is the turn around?
      Thank you.

      Picked up another GT-14 today! Not in too bad of shape other then the previous owner hacked up the wiring quite a bit. I am in need of a wiring diagram to completely redo it. Currently I can get it to crank over but no spark

      Well, most of the regulars here are aware I will be relocating this Spring/Summer. I had hoped to take the remaining collection of tractors with me. However more and more it is becoming obvious that this plan wont work out for numerous reasons. As such, once I make up my mind as to which one to keep, I will be posting the remainder as well as most parts etc up for sale in the Forum Classifieds and CL.
       
      As I hope shows in poll info, I have 2 Stage Blower, Restored 48 & 60 inch(195) decks, 54 inch blade, GT14 style Tiller and a project Sickle Bar. The Sickle BAr can likely be made to work on the GT14 style tractors and the C160.
       
      I enjoy working on them but as I get older I may not have time or ability to do so. As such, maintenance and parts and ease of use of a single tractor are part of the equation.
       
      A couple of these I have poured a lot of time into but I am not emotionally tied to them and I believe if I relocate back east where Grass and tractor need becomes more necessary, I can re-create them.
       
      So help me out with my decision.
