    Default JD garden tractor serial number decoder

    Just bought a used GT 235 with a 44 inch Pirahna deck. The mulching blades have been replaced to make the deck a rear discharge. Someone's got a nice 54C deck advertised on the local Craigslist ( http://watertown.craigslist.org/grd/3929622703.html ) and I'm trying to find out if I can use it with this tractor.
    I can't seem to find a place to decode the tractor serial number to get more specific information about it. I signed up at Engine Information Search from John*Deere but I get no results for the serial number.
    Is there anyplace on the internet that I can find this stuff out?
    Edit:
    After poking around TBN a little, it appears through some other threads that this info is apparently available only through the dealer network. Most likely via the parts & service departments.
    At any rate, would any of Deere guys here have any idea if this deck would work on the tractor? Tractor serial number is MOG235A016330 if that helps anyone. Thanks!

    It's a really good source of information for anything John Deere. I'm talking about JD Parts com.
    Anyway,it lists the 54C (convertible) deck will fit the LX288,GT225,235,245.

    Thanks Greg. Tried to sign up yesterday but couldn't for some reason. This morning I seem to be logging in just fine. I have absolutely no literature with this machine so I'm trying to find out various things online as I go. I've been in touch with Green Parts Store to order manuals. They replied once to ask if I was looking for owner's or technical manuals. I replied twice that I was interested in a tech manual but got no more replies from them. If I'm reading Tractordata correctly, this tractor is a 1999 model.
    In the Craigslist ad I mentioned in the first post, the ad states that it's for shaft drive models and does picture a gearbox. I probably wouldn't get involved with trying to convert it to belt drive.

    That ad on craigslist is indeed for the shaft drive tractors, X475/X720 etc.
    the deck you are looking for would fit all of the GT/GX and 325-345 type machines
    JD X585 with 45 loader, 3ph, 62C deck, 47SB, 54 blade, Soft Cab. JD F620 with 60". JD HPX gator. JD T23 trimmer
    JD CS56 and CS36 saws. JS35 WB mower.

    Thanks Dutch. Looks like I stick with what's there for now. Not really a priority. I've got a nice Ferris that I do the house lawn with. I bought the old Deere to mow a lot next to me that I own that's fairly rough. Wanted to save some pounding on the Ferris.

    Currently have my eye on this deck but haven't hit the purchase button just yet: John Deere 54C Complete Deck Fits GT225 - GT245 325 - 345 GX325 - GX345 SKU21394
    There's a semi local dealer 50 or 60 miles away who sells all kinds of used JD lawn equipment on Craigslist. I've got an email in to him to find out if he can do any better than the above link.
