KT 17 Engine Mounting

Recommended Posts

yes you can use any kt17. The only difference in the engines is the pto shaft coming out of the front of the engine. Most of the front attachments for your tractor use the center pto so it will not be a problem.

Thanks alot got a great deal a my 7117 its not in too bad of condition all except the owner could not get the crankcase apart so he used a big hammer. But it came with a 48 inch mower deck and 48 inch snow plow, wheel weights and chains he gave it to me and all I have to do is get his 12hp briggs Simplicity to spark for him. I've never fool around with these tractors always had a sears yard mower this 7117 looks like it can handle alot more heavy work. When I was teenager I tinkered when old chevy hot rods gave all that up 25 years ago I lost the drive to fool with them, but this tractor has brought back the desire to try and get it going plus this club helped also with all the info and seems like you gents are really great as well so I think I will be paying my dues today. Thanks a bunch Tim

      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
