314 will a 48 7100 deck fit

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 314 with a bad engine and an electric lift for $150.00 from the local JD dealer. Tractor is in very good shape; looks like it has been stored inside most of its life. However the deck has a hole in the leading edge. I also have a 310 in real bad shape with a 10 horse engine that runs. Hope to put in the 314 and if the 14 horse engine can be fixed I hope to put in a 716. I have searched the forms for information on installing a 48 inch deck from a 7100 series tractor (as I have three of these); however, I have not been able to find any info on this swap. Has anyone ever done such a swap? Bob in Kokomo

Hi, The blades on the 7000 deck turn the wrong way. Not very easy to change the drive, You might look at attempting to adapt one of the early style mid mount PTOs to the tractor. Do not be surprised if you have a lot of trouble trying to get the belts to work reliably. My 2 cents worth and its free, value accordingly. Al Eden

Bob, The 300/400 Series tractors have right hand discharge mower decks because they are driven from the front PTO off the motor, not the mid PTO off the BGB like earlier and later models. You would probably have more time & money in switching over as just repairing the existing deck.Also a 10 Hp. motor may have a hard time with a 48" mower deck.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
