JD 345

Recommended Posts


I know it's green but my dad is having an issue and thought somebody here might be able to help. He has 96 JD345 with 20hp Kawasaki. Just turned 1000 hours last night while mowing. He said it started to smoke but only when on his hill only while turning. When he got to the back yard which is flat it seemed to run fine and no smoke. Any ideas where to start looking? I don't know much about these or where to find more info.

Thanks for any help.

Had him check the oil level and it is just below full.

I thought about the breather as well. I'm going to look at it tomorrow.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
