How to get JD 318 out of neutral

Just inherited a JD 318 from my dad. No manual came with it. I can start it just fine, but for the life of me I do not know how to get it out of neutral. Is there a trick or something? And my dad is no longer around to ask. Thanks!!!

Your tractor has a hydrostatic transmission, I'm not sure about the lock on the dash board down next to the key, but most hydro's, you just slam them into gear and go, and it will go back and forth till you get tired of going back and forth. I love the thing. Check it out. Hope this helps.

John Deere 318. Why won't shifter move from neutral?

the dash is notched were the neutral posisition is , this notch (shift lever needs moved out of notch) is there for two reasons , the one you need to be concerned about is the clutch disconnect , this makes it impossible to shift into any direction without clutch pedal down , sometimes this lever will become bent and not press far enough for release arm of shift lever to allow its movement

love these little tractors , they got all the features of a bigger machine but with the size ease of a compact machine , for a small farm or big home garden there's nothing this machine cant do with the right attachments on it I sure wish JD still made em !

My jd 318 wont start and back fires,i replaced the shaft key did it brack agein

It sounds like it did break again. Check the key and ensure that the flywheel is installed dry onto the shaft and the bolt in the end of the shaft is tight enough.

My uncle has a john deere 111 and my dad turned it on and off apparently trying to get the key out and it hasn't worked since. What should my uncle do?

Is this the old JD 111 made from 1979-1986? I would guess that it was left out in the weather over the years and that is why the key was stuck. Check the ignition switch and the starting solinoid. That is where I would start. Let me know if that is it. If it still does not work, then there are other routes to go. I have a JD 111 from 1980 that was recently left to me. I tuned it up last year and it still runs good. That is a testament to the old JD's.

I have inherited my dad's Echo chainsaw - CS-3900, but not the manual. My question is simple - how do I know if I should use a 50:1 or 32:1 oil to gas mixture?

Oil to gas mixture is more a function of the oil than the saw. If you use high quality oil like Echo brand, (or Stihl or Husqvarna) you'll be fine at 50:1. If the saw is older than 15 or so years you'd be a little safer running 32:1. It'll just smoke a little more at 32:1. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
