I was looking for a hydrostat tractor to replace the 74-112 for blowing snow, tried a 300 from my local mower shop, but it needed too much work to restore. Found this 314 on Kansas City CL, on the opposite side of KC from me. Called the seller & he agreed to meet us on our side at a Lowes. When he arrived with the tractor, he told me it wouldn\'t start, he would get it running & bring it to me, 80 miles away. He kept in touch & had been through all fuel lines , pump etc., got it going on a weekend we were going to be close to KC. I brought it home, mowed for about an hour, it sputtered & quit. I took the gas tank off, cleaned it & have never had any more problems! Use it mostly for shows, snowblowing & the belly blade.
