I'm actually starting a new thread for a problem I'm having. I was working with "JD345 Slooooow coolant leak"
It started with a coolant leak on my JD345 ('94 vintage) and since I need to replace the coolant pump, the wise men here have convinced me to dig in a little further and replace the Cam shaft as well since everything is pretty much apart at that point.
A few more questions...
1. I plan to purchase the kit for the cam shaft from Bomburgers on eBay, does anyone know if that come with instructions ? I guess what I want to know is do I need to buy the $200 John Deere instructions ? Or can the You Tube video and stickies here get me through it ? I know that's a relative question but I'm wondering if it's as easy as popping the cover off the bottom of the engine - replace the shaft and seal it back up ?
2. Do you guys replace the governor & oil pump gears as well ?
