KT17 Series 2

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a Simplicity 7117 Hydro with a Kohler KT17 Series 2 engine. The engine does not contain an oil filter. I thought the Series 2 engines had pressurized oiling systems with oil filters to correct oiling problems associated with the Series 1 engines.

Go to the Kohler website and download this manual: tp2043-a , it is the service manual for the KT17-II, you may also want to go to the Simplicity site and download : TP-500_973-01-SV-SMA.pdf , it is the service and repair manual for the 7117. I just added an oil filter to my 7117, had to slightly modify the frame for clearance, bought the adapter off 'E-BAY', the adapter was off a M-18 (I searched under kohler oil). I've had my 7117 about 2 years now, a lot better for throwing snow than my 712H. Don

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
