I brought home a 7117 a few weeks ago that I got a good deal on. Today I took off the right head hoping to find a stuck valve.(thare was no compression on that side)Well I guess it has a broken rod, the valves move but not the piston. Now this engine is also a 24343 KT17S series two Kohler. From what Ive read about these engines on the web today, Kohler was to have fixed this problem, which was why they needed a series two in the first place. Now should I spend $1000. getting this moter rebuilt? $1400. for a new engine? or sell it and hope to get my money back? Heres a photo if anyone is interested.It also has a tiller, snow plow, and weights & chains http://members.aol.com://wildmanq/7117rear.jpg
