Very nice 7117 on eBay

Found a real nice 7117 w/ a new deck on eBay. I'd go after it but have already bought two tractors this summer.. Rob[A href='http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370516923']http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370516923[/a]

As far as I know the Kohler KT17 Series II is a good engine. The Series I suffered from low oil pressure and was infamous for blowing up. I my youth I owned a JD 317 with the not so great KT17 Series I. It is the reason I switched to Sim and AC. The Series II has an oil pump that works.

Yes, the Series II is the one that is the good one. I'd love to have this tractor, it would look so good next to my 7116... (See "Sweet 7116" in the gallery) But I'd need somewhere else to sleep this summer 'cause my wife can't seem to see the need for 6 tractors.. Rob
