My next dumb questions for the experts

Recommended Posts

My next dumb question for the experts is what is there on a 300 or 400 series tractor to look for to distinguish between the two ?? Am I mistaken; I thought 10 12 and 14 hp Kohlers were the same and 16s were different? Is the shaft size on a 12 hp the same as 14 or is 14 the same as 16? The reasoning is this. I have a 312 and a 416 with numbers I can read. Also have what I thought was a 414 But the head and crank size on the 414 is the same as the 416. And the deck and blower mounts under the 414 are the same as the 312. The only numbers I can find on the 414? anywhere is the 14 hp on the flywheel shroud. Will a 14 hp shroud fit a 16 hp engine? What do I have here besides total confusion? :(!

Dan The steering wheel is diffrent on a 300 than on a 400. The shaft on a 300 is splined with a large nut under the center cap of the wheel. The 400 wheel has a bolt and nut that pass through the shaft side to side not up and down. Hope that helps.

Front axles are different. The 300 series is a Totally enclosed welded piece while the 400 series has a open axle made of heavy steel Flat.The 310 had a manual PTO clutch while the 410 & 416 had a electric as did the 312D and 314.

I've been told this fits a 300 series John.

With this style hitch, I've been told you need an adapter plate?

There is one other member interested ahead of you but he was trying to hold off till after the holidays if noone else asked before that. I will get in touch with him before I can commit to anyone else.

The front PTO idler brackets are different from the 300 to 400 series tractors.The 300 series is wider and bolts on to the frame of the tractor.The 400 series bracket is narrower and attatches to the frame with quick pins.Because of the wide front PTO bracket on the 300 an odd hitch system is used.There are plates mounted the the frame behind the front wheels that snow blower attatches to.It looks like the snow blower pictured above is for a 400 series and would require a hitch adapter to use on a 300 series.A normal snow blade can be used on a 300 with the PTO bracet removed.
