Hi my name is Jason and I live in South Eastern PA. I work at a desk but am very much mechanically inclined (IMO). I restore (mechanically and sometimes cosmetically) antique outboard boat motors for fun. I generally just like to take anything mechanical that has been deemed dead by the mechanically disinclined and bring it back to life. I will help out and answer questions as much as I can and have the expertise to do so.

I am eager to discuss my new to me (well my father) 1987 JD 316 with 50” deck. We bought it (with a few issues) to replace his insufficient Craftsman. He has 3 acres of healthy grass. I have always wanted to see what all the hype was about :D

:MTF_wel2:This place has more info than you will need. And a few opinions that you will surely get a kick out of. I just bought a 318 also, SN 424430. How close are we.
