About a year ago I was given a free john deere 214 with a unrunning k321 14hp kohler. I had it running not that long ago but the axle tube seals went bad in the peerless 2300 so I decided I was gonna tear it apart and build a mudder.
Rebuild the 14hp and get the cam welded and then redo the ignition system and a new carter 30 carb.
I am going to rebuild the peerless axle and leave it unlocked. Then im going to paint the frame and under body and then going to repaint the underbody with origanal color schemn the im gonna paint the motor black with orange high lights.
Im going with 26 inch kenda executioners and 18 inch front tires and a travelar 2500 pound winch up front.
Also I might look into a smog pump supercharger or a small engine turbo also.
So to me I have a good bit of work ahead of me
