  1. Well, here we go again. A real nice fella helped me out by mowing my lawn when I was hospitalized for seven weeks... He used his deere and my 314-8 to get my acre of heaven mowed. Just after that , a guy noticed that while he was hauling his tractor to the shop or the dump that by friend's tractor matched his own and offered the twin for sale at 200. They made a deal in the parking lot. i I checked a taryl fixes all video and taryl showed an exact tear down and repair video for that very engine. The reason for two tractors is that a Deere of that vintage is a big job to change from a mower to a snow plow. cant blame him for that. I invited my benefactor to bring it into the shop and after scraping and vacuuming and blowing dirt off the thing, I finally got the bottom pulleys off so it could be removed. Its a bucket engine that comes apart from the bottom and you tear it apart upside down. The engine is notorious for having a plastic cam gear that sheds teeth, but this one was a later model and it has a metal cam gear----yAY! The thing is stuck, but it looks good inside. The valve covers are off and the valves appear to not be stuck. The push rods move in and out against the springs. The engine seems to be seized. i flipped the spark plug side up and sprayed Deep Creep inside, but with the pistons at opposing angles, the penetrant will not be evenly sitting on top of the piston. i have the thing mounted to some 2x6 to keep it upside down, but the thoughts are to either fill the tops of the pistons up with 0w30 full synthetic or make a modification to set each piston in the vertical on alternate days and use Deep Creep. I might even be able to get a camera attachment into the spark plug hole to view the piston bores. I intend to be patient with this one. First the pistons, Then if it does not break free, examine the crank shaft rod ends .She's sitting high and pretty on the adjustable work lift because my old back makes it a good idea. Pictures are coming...BTW, i must admit that the tractor is heavily built with power steering. Hopefully we can repair it with just some gaskets and perhaps check the water pump.
