I have had good luck with aftermarket belts. The one on my 322 is over four yrs old and still in good shape. Just search with your part # and you will find them. Mine was $20 vrs $60 at JD.Well I was hoping to get a few mows out of the belt but she let go and was she past her time.
Anyway I was looking online and there doesn't seem to be a lot of info on the 46 inch deck and im trying to figure out what size and part number it is. I believe its a 90"/½" v belt. And if that's the case should i go aftermarket or stick with oem.
I'll show pictures of the oil drain and the machine itself here in a bit. Thanks again.
I definitely thought all 318s had the hole in the frame until seeing your pic... sorry man, that stinks! I think hole saws or a good step bit might be the way to go.This is where the oil drain "should" be.
So I'm just guessing that this being a first model year they forgot it.
My wife always goes on about my fat calves 😑.I can't imagine pushing a riding mower up a hill across 2 acres for 10 years. You must strong legs!
Yeah if you look down the grill you can see the square oil plug. Yeah you can fish a wrench down the but the there's no drainage hole anywhere near there to get it out. I might do a write up of drilling out the frame and making some sort of pipe drain plug type thing. Or my buddy suggested a little 12 pump thing that I can suck it out, be a lot less cursing that way probably.I was doing some stuff on mine for a while today and noticed that if you take the grill off...it looks like you could get a wrench in there...not easily...but you could
As for the belt my local JD dealer had them for 24 bucks. Wasn't going to complain at that price!I have had good luck with aftermarket belts. The one on my 322 is over four yrs old and still in good shape. Just search with your part # and you will find them. Mine was $20 vrs $60 at JD.
