Landlord mower deck work on the AC 314 ?

Got a mower deck off a '64 Landlord that's been laying around here, I was curious if it will work on the AC 314? I know it will fit right on after measuring but will the blades spin in the right direction off the front PTO of the Kohler on the 314? Kris

The 314 deck appears to be RH discharge. You could probably just "flip" the belt to power a LH discharge deck. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/images/300_series/314_specs_small.jpg[/img]

I was just looking at that same picture Dutch. I was thinking I could flip the belt but I'll have to see if the belt will rub together where it it cross. Otherwise I'm going to have to find a another deck for the 314.

Does the 314 belt come off the front of the engine or the BGB? FYI - Some of the Homelite decks had RH discharge & they were deep decks.

the spacing for the front brackets are different for my b112 and my 314... imagine the landlord would be equivalent to the b112. - R

You can't make a deep deck work on the 300/400 series because the drive pulley will stick up way too high. My solution was to modify a 5216 right hand discharge 42" deck to work. The bolt holes and basic stamping is the same as the 300/400 series decks. The only big difference is the stamping around the spindle assemblies and the assemblies used. I bolted the roller bar and all the hanger hardware from the 300 series deck I had to the 5200 series deck. Then you have to get inventive with the spindle assemblies. You can use the split cup spindle housings from the 5200 deck, but the actual spindles(all 3 were the side spindles out of a 7100 series deck. The pulleys for the sides were the side spindle pulleys off of the 5200 series deck. Then to make the center pulley I used a side spindle pulley from a 5200 series deck for the lower part(blade drive) then jigged and welded a side spindle pulley from a 7100 series deck to the top of that. That combo gave me the right heighth. I then had to extend the tabs on the roller bar that the turnbuckles attach to so the turnbuckle rods would not hit the belt as it ran across the back side of the deck between the side spinlde assemblies. Took me a few hours of looking at all the parts I had layin around to figure this one out, but it works real slick. Deck turns at a higher rpm than usual but it mows nice. I can take pictures if ya'll want. Sam

Wow Sam, You just confused my simple mind with all those numbers. (I leave my brain at work most of the time). I'll have to see that deck. Maybe, I'll just have to post in the wantads for a 300 series deck when I'm ready for it. I was just looking at this Landlord deck last night and it got me thinking about this topic. Kris

I am amazed, this is the same problem I have. I have an A-C 314 H and a mower deck in excellent condition. I am not sure,but have been advised the deck is a Simplicity 990575 (42")or a 990576 (48").I think the BVG or mid PTO is to power the deck because there is no clearance for the belt to reach the front PTO. I am looking for the bolt on brackets for the mid PTO idler assy. I wish I could post a picture.
