Are KT parts NLA?

Recommended Posts

Selling a KT17S in pieces on Ebay. The prices in these last hours of the auction prompt me to ask whether or not Kohler KT parts are no longer available? Never have I seen used rods and standard pistons fetch over $100 till now:O of course I'm not complaining, but I just cant see the reasoning behind the bidding like this.

Don't know about the Kohler parts but I have seen some strange things on ebay. Have two identical items selling just a day or so apart... one will sell for 24.99 and the other for 124.99. One guy sold a 1 pint Mason jar of dirt for over $300. Its kinda like gambling... you have to decide how much you are going to loose or spend (in the case of ebay) and not exceed that amount regardless how heated the bidding gets. I have seen a lot of final bids where people obviously lost sight of the value of the item.

AFAIK, the parts are still available. I'll check when I get into the shop in the morning to make sure, but I am pretty sure I ordered some last month. Might be that the old style is out of production or something, but I'll double check Andy

      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
