KT-17 engine in a Deutz Allis 917

Recommended Posts

Replaced the coil and can now get the engine to run at slow idle and not die. However, when I apply 3/4 to full throttle, it will die, just like turning the ingnition to the off position. I have cleaned the fuel tank (last fall) and did not leave any fuel in the tank over this past winter. No kinks in the fuel line. Installed new condenser this spring and different carburetor. I have an in-line fuel filter installed and can see gas flowing when the engine runs, although the filter never is more than 50% full at any time. I know that I may still have a fuel delivery problem but am stumped as to what to do next. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!!!

What kind of fuel filter are you using? I just had a problem with one of my tractors where the filter I used was to restricted for the engine. I'm not familiar with the KT's (yet) but I bet UCD's onto something. I sound like you might need to open up the bowl jet a little more. Not sure, keep putterin'. Let us know. Rob

      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
