Hey all,

I have a 214 of unknown year. It has been missing the vin plate since I bought it and the previous owner is unsure of its age.

It has a manual PTO engagement, louvered engine covers, solid yellow 214 stripe, manual deck adjustment, and... a grill emblem!

I realize that some of this could have been changed but I'm pretty sure that the manual PTO was only available in the earlier years.

Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Assuming that your description of the engine side panels is correct your serial number would be higher than 70001 which would make it a 1977 or newer model. Not enough detail to help you out any further.

If you had a picture of the secondary belt idler (under the tractor and towards the rear axle) there is a difference in those at SN 80001. And a difference in the parking brake assembly at SN# 95001.

Abe, I'm going to put the diagrams of the item up here for you so you can take a look at them closer yourself. Probably pretty hard without taking the seat pan and pedestal off to get a decent picture but you should be able to see them. The differenc on the secondary belt sheve is the arm to the small pulley. The older one is a one piece unit. On the brake mechanism you would be looking to see if your is the same as this diagram. Good luck!
