7117 replacement motor

Recommended Posts

is the kt17s the correct replacement motor for the 7117? I have a line on one. what other motors can match up or easily be adapted. I have a 14 hp kohler sitting on the bench right now. Is this feasible?

Yes, the kt17 is the same that is in the 7117. Single cylinder cast iron kohlers and briggs both will go in wthout problems since that is what they put in them. kohler commands will also go in them. Al sells a command kit.

If the price is right on the KT17s, then go for it, otherwise I would consider repowering with a Kohler Command V-Twin. They are a reliable engine as well.

i picked up the kt17s for a good price. good compression. fairly clean motor. I thought about putting the 14hp i have in there but this kt17 came up.

hah, the motor is good but the tractor i was gonna put it in turned out to be a little more gone than i wanted to deal with. Now i have a 14hp and a 17 hp in the shed. Has anyone tried to put a kt17 into a 7112????will it fit without hacking the frame???
