I just picked up a 31 tiller for my 1975 210. Other than the mule drive, what other parts do I need to mount and use it. Can anyone give me any info on how the tiller hooks up to the mule drive, where the mule drive is mounted, etc? I'd appreciate any help since I've never used a tractor mounted tiller before.

thanks
Rob

If you run down the"Gear Drive" topic list to" John Deere 214" you will see 2 pictures that I have posted several times in the last couple of years. ONe picture is of the side of the tractor showing the tiller and the mule drive.

Thanks Ed,

It looks like the only pieces I may be missing are the depth control linkage and the black lift rod. I have the belt that runs from the tiller to the mule drive, but not the belt from the tract pto to the mule drive. Would that be a different size than the one that runs my lawn deck? Also, would that belt (for the tiller mule drive), run off the outer pto pulley?
thanks

the belt to the tiller mule drive goes in the same place as the mower deck belt. The tiller mule drive belt is shorter than the belt for the mower.
