Re: My JD 332

Yeh, that's why I said "similar." BUT, it prolly goes underneath, and in any case, you'll need to remove your pedestal to slip it over the steering column. Not exactly sure what that involves, but it's a LOT! Bob

Agreed! at least I know what it is. I wonder if anyone knows whats involved at taking off the column.

Re: My JD 332

So big news for the 332. I have gotten a hold of HOOSIERPETE and have a nice buford bucket on order. I am super excited for this as im hoping it will help take some of the load off my shoulders.

Pete said i needed 2 things a ballast for the rear and a rockshaft lockout valve.

the ballast and weight i have but the rockshaft im not sure about. i have not bought one yet but im contemplating adding H3 so im not sure i would even need it if i upgraded. Does anyone know if you only need the lockout valve for faster response or is there another reason.

also i have attached a picture and want to know what that screw is for. is on the back left of the tractor. thanks everyone!

Re: My JD 332

DR, That screw is a depth stop for your rockshaft. It will do pretty much the SAME THING as a lockout valve!

Right now, you probably have little or no movement on your 3-pt hitch arms. Screwing the screw in will give you more movement and backing it out, less movement.

Run the screw in, lower the arms, attach ballast box (??), raise hitch arms fully up, and turn screw out...like in pic. You should now be able to raise/lower or dump and your ballast will stay put! Bob

Interesting. Ill have to play around with that then. As of now my 3ph arms go full ROM up and down. Do they have to be in a certain position to lock them out?

Dr, As I don't have a 3-pt on my 322...which is the same as a 332 except gas, not diesel... I could easily have it backwards! Turn the screw and see what happens! Bob

I'm sure you know this but that screw will also affect the deck height when you lower the deck to mow so just an FYI!!

I also just remembered that there are some lock out bars or called something like that which you can get that you use for the deck to keep it in place, up position, for when you use the plow. Supposed to take the delay out of raise and lower on the plow. I never got them for mine but I can see that they could be handy.

Someone else here most likely will have better info than me!

Re: My JD 332

so first thing is first. I got my Mule drive back from my friend who was nice enough to weld on a new tension indicator and it works great.

with the mule drive back i tried to re-attach the deck and thats where i hit my problem. the left side goes up and down like its suppose to the side with the adjusting lift.

the right side does not the arm looks like its working but the attachment point just goes up and down. if i put 2x4 under it to level it you can see how much space there seems to be. It worked fine before i took the deck off so what am i doing wrong. I read another thread where the L would flip but looks to be fine in my case. Am i suppose to tighten something? Please help. ill attache a bunch of pictures now.

ive got no idea why picture got flipped

Re: My JD 332

Adjust the one so that they both pick up together and you'll be fine. It doesn't matter which side the adjustable one is on, just make it match the non-adjustable one.

By the way I rotated your pictures so they'd be easier to see.

Thanks for rotating them!

If I. Adjust that side down to level then when up they will both be on the ground when raised. before they would both come off the ground level

Re: My JD 332

Did you reinstall the deck or just the mule drive?

If you raise it up how level is it?

Re: My JD 332

The side to side is not where you should be adjusting the deck lift stop. The threaded rod on the rear is where you set the deck height. Lift the deck up to where you want your cutting height to be then turn the threaded rod at the rear clockwise until it stops. It will always make that height the lowest that the deck will travel down.
