ABSOLUTELY FREAKING YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not running with a blown motor, it is worth a few hundred $$ just for parts. And you might get real lucky and find out this one has hydraulic lift and a rear sleeve hitch which adds up to $500 of goodies right there. And if you don't want it, Delaware isn't that far away from me, I'll GLADLY drive down and get it before it hits the dumpster.

bigallis,

The older JD's make excellent work tools. This 14 year old 170 is still going strong and mows great. 14hp Kawasaki with a 5 speed manual.

The 200 and 300 series are even better. Good luck and great find! Keep us informed and post some pics as soon as you can.

Thanks Jody,

I hit the reply button and looked up to watch the Mariners playing Baltimore, then ran to cut potatoes for my special dill potato salad. I'm in charge of dinner tonight....BBQ salmon.

Grab it. Probably does not need a clutch, probably just the verearter[sp???] needs adjusting.

If someone here can't help out in getting your 212 running, and you have questions or need help, then go to www.weekendfreedommachines.org for the best info on pre 1992 Deere garden tractors. Their archives are a VAST resource of info in the fixin and restoring of these fine old machines.

bigallis,

Which pulley are you talking about? The main engine pulley? Transmission pulley?

For your pics, go to www.photobucket.com, and become a member. It's quick, easy and free. Then create an album and follow the instructions to upload pics from your camera or computer to your album.

Below the pics is the URL for the pic. Copy it and paste into a reply on the forum. Type <imgsrc= in front of the URL, no space between the URL and the =, but add one between the img and src. Then type > at the end of the URL, again, no spaces.

Post the reply and your pic should appear.

Or you could just click on post reply at the lower right corner of the last post in the thread and click on browse, find the pic in your files and open it and it will appear here as an attachment. Alot easier than uploading the pics to the web.

6 chows,

Just did a Google search for funny pics after your joke. Charo's pic just kinda stuck out.... No Bun intended.....

Besides that, I got a cold yesterday and I still have a fever!
