I actually did a full re paint. Took about 4 months. Top to bottom. Not my best work. But I do like the outcome and very proud of this rig. Have the 48" deck and bagger as can be seen in OG photo but due to cold new England weather the snowblower resto came 1st.

I found this site hunting for parts for the 314 and I found someone who makes all new decals so I stripped down and did full paint and stickered it back up to the best of my knowledge witch at this point is limited but slowly learning about them. This site has been most of my info.

Yes they do 23x10.5-12 on the rear were enjoyable to put on the rear to say the least lol. Some tough rubber.

      Working on a custom light bar for the recently restored 314-8

      Finally got the stack installed, getting that threaded pipe out of the head needed a little persuasion but all went well, and it looks fantastic thanks to Jim Kemp!

      Decided to sell the 314-8, wife wants to mow the lawn more and doesn't like shifting gears.  It's a 97 or 98(i don't remember off top of my head) 314-8 hour meter says it has 261 hours but it's broken so if I had to estimate the hours I would 600-800.  Mechanically very strong with no issues, I've used it weekly to mow my lawn for the last couple of years.  Comes with a 37" side discharge deck and bagger setup if you want it(not pictured).  Only trades I'm really interested in would be a full hydro tractor.  Let me know if you have any questions.

      I have a 1996 Wheel Horse 314-8 that has a Kohler motor on it. My issue is starting it. It does nothing for several tries at turning the key but finally starts. Seems to be getting worse. Makes no noise during tries to start; nothing till it finally kicks over. I've looked all over this thing to see if it is brake/safety switch related but find nothing. Help?

      I have a 1999 314-8. It never starts on the 1st try whether it is hot or cold outside. It always starts immediately on the 2nd try. Is there anything I should be checking/fixing or is this just typical of a 18 year old tractor. The hour meter reads about 350 hours.
       
      If the tractor is stopped and restarted during mowing/plowing, it will start on the first try.
       
      This is my first tractor, so no response is too obvious...
