7119 What to do.

Recommended Posts

kpswit
Last year bought a used 7119. rebuilt mower deck cuts great! Brock rear axle tube, rebuilt rear end with new tub. Tractor running great! Kt-19.5 was low on compression on one cylinder. Also burnt oil. Was waiting for winter to rebuilt but did not make it. Engine went over week end. Will not turn over. Question is to rebuild KT or do I look at one of the repower Kits. I do plan on keeping it for a long time. Do use it for plowing ,snow blowing ,leaf pick up,(have turbine kit) box blade,dozer blade ,disk, and shreder. Looking for opinion. Money is always a issue.

if you can rebuild it yourself (taking parts to machine shop as necessary) that will be the least inexpensive way. But of course you need to see the internals of engine to evaluate if a rebuild is possible. Kohler has a good manual on-line for rebuilding engines. i would suggest a repower kit, before taking to a shop for rebuilld. my opinions, based on a similar situation with a 7117h and sunstar 20.

Our KT17 has been great. We think it probably has around 3500 hours on it, and we've never had to work on it. Sent it back to the dealer when it was new to have a seal changed in the transmission, and it took them ages to get it back . They put an old used crapy stator on it. The only time it was apart was to change the stator. We'd definately rebuild it when it goes. It sure is a powerful engine.

Whoa Nellie!! First thing is.... Is this a KT or a KT Series II ? If It's a first generation KT, I'd scrap it. If it's a KT Series II with the oil pump it may be worth saving.

I would repower it. We have had nothing but trouble with both the KT and The KT Series II Kohlers. We run them hard and do the mantiance on a reguler Hrs sch. The kohlers just don't stay toghter very well.We have had very good luck with the B&S Vangards.We have 4 of them now and two of them have over 700 hrs and no sign of any trouble. We service them every 60 to 75 hrs and go again.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
