Been a long time since I posted. Hope everyone is doing well.
I work doing HVAC In a medical center and have been working quite a bit.
Anyway my son and I made a run to the local salvage yard today to cleanup all the scrap steel that’s been laying around. My wife was happy to see us finally getting some money for our junk instead of paying to get rid of it. Well..... it cost us $20 but we got another horse.
let’s see how this goes.
312-8 with SD deck.
Hello everyone! Got a real puzzle here! Husband has visited with some on here by phone, but he is getting really frustrated! Can anyone help us with this tractor!

So he has put more and more money in this and not fixed the issue! A list of what he has done thus far!

More pictures available upon request.
I picked up a 1989 312-8 and have it in pretty good shape after a couple weeks of paint & detailing.
I do need to replace a spindle shaft on the deck.
I started looking at the manuals here and realized that the deck was not from a 1989 machine.
The closest match I can find is a 1973-1975 42" SD #5-1010, but the illustrations show the height adjustment lever & mechanism as being on the left side of the deck, mine is located on the right.
Can anyone help to identify this deck?
Thanks in advance!
My first post on here so apologies in advance for any rookie mistakes.
First off, I am the proud owner of a "new to me" 312-8. I took it out for a spin yesterday and when I engaged the PTO, currently there is a 42 in side discharge mower deck on it, there were sparks flying from the disk directly below the muffler (maybe the flywheel or clutch?). Any idea what that may be and what needs to be addressed?
Thank you !!
