Going to be parting out this John Deere soon. Runs fine but the bolts that hold the motor in have fallen out again. I have pulled this motor and tapped the holes once already and am not doing it again. Anyone need any parts or want to buy the thing whole? I will get some pics tonight of it. The lifting mechanism doesnt work right so it wont lower the deck all the way. I think the lowest it goes is 2". hood has a crack in the front. Tires are ok and hold air. Muffler is currently off because of rust but I do have it. Located in Central Wisconsin.Email me with an offer if you want to buy it whole. Picture below is not mine but looks just like it.

Oh the picture looks so sad. Almost like a real bad puppy dog that piddled or something.

I have the same mower with the same problems . Tried retaping the holes and used loctite and they did not hold then used threaded inserts and the bolts will not hold . It just sits in the barn now . Pain in the rear to have to tighten everything every time you mow .

Deck is fine. Blades are 2 years old. no wobble in the pulleys. Not perfect but perfectly useable. Not sure how I would ship something that big...

Where do you live? I'll have to get some idea of shipping cost. What is your bottom dollar price?

Sold the thing whole this weekend for $50. Cheap but no longer a thorn in my side.
