Spring is here, the grass is growing, and the allergies are poppin. I needed to fix one of those things so I bought a John Deere STX38 lawn tractor from the early 90s that some how didn't have a broken hood. It probably has a million hours on it so after I mow the lawn it's time to start cleaning this thing and fixing it. This is the old school yellow deck STX38 so it's supposed to be the best version!

My dad has one of these he crashed it into a tree had to replace the plastic box the steering collum goes through and a couple other things. there's a metal ring that the gear select lever goes through below the body that broke he's been sitting on it for 5+ years now won't sell it and won't finish fixing it despite buying a new hood and other parts.

Grew up mowing my yard as a kid on a 1967 JD 110. Miss that little beast. They really didn't change all that much over 30 years.

Rant: First, you should clean the mating surface where the oil filter seals. Second If you turn the wheel to the right, it would allow the pan to sit level on the mower deck. Third, I heard nothing about your interest in corrosion control on the rear of the mower. (Rant over, for now.) John Deere 111, STX38 Black Deck, 265, and L110. The 265, and L110 have been great mowers. Looking forward to repairing the 111, and STX38. BTW, what belt is used on the 111 rear drive. (Go go belt) ?

Dad has a similar vintage Deere mower, looks almost like this one but just a wee bit bigger/beefier. Same shifter but the deck goes up/down with a big old lever that sticks up past the hood that you pull. I think he bought it in 1987 or 88 when they bought the house, still runs/operates like a new mower. Although he started push mowing the front yard(like 1/2 an acre lol) like 20 years ago for the exercise and cause the stripes look much prettier.

Turn the tires to the opposite side of the oil drain and you can fit the pan much easier.

Hi @WatchJRGo, I've been watching your videos for years now, since Amber's Geo Metro. Please pretty please get a decent microphone. Each time you turn around while you talk the volume of your voice goes down like 75%. Love your vids!

I had one of these. In it's first two years of life, it went back to the dealer 8 or 9 times for various things. After that, she was wailed on for 19 years total. She was always underpowered for my needs, but she tried her best to do the work required. When the teething problems were out of the way originally, she really only required oil and filter changes and the odd starter motor every couple years. That last year I owned it, it was apparent that she needed more work that what she was worth. I hooked the old girl up and drug her up to the road with my old IH Cub and stuck a free sign on her. I suspect she's probably still out there.

man i love this channel. you buy anything. i just was recently gifted a 1995 JD LX178 with the liquid cooled engine. was sitting in a field since the early 2000s so it has a lot of work that needs to be done, but the engine turns over. i'm planning to do a full restoration to make it look as factory/brand new as possible!

JR, take a close look at the wheel bearing on your right front tire. I looks like it is out of the wheel.

I could be wrong, but perhaps the 38 was put in "STX 38" to signify the 38-inch deck. Call me crazy...

My dad bought a JD 160 lawn mower back in 84 or 85 I think. I think I put tens of thousands of miles on it cutting their grass, neighbors grass, etc. Then a few years later we bought a snow thrower for it. One particular storm it was heavy wet snow and I blew the bearing right out the side. Overall it's been a killer lawnmower. Beat the living hell out of it and it's still running to this day at my sisters house.
