7117 rebuild almost done

Recommended Posts


Here is an update on the 7117 I've been fixing up. I haven't put the engine back in yet, it was leaking oil badly but ran fine no smoke at all. I took the shielding off but can't see any obvious leaks so I replaced the valve cover gaskets and both crank seals. I'm think I'll put it back in and see if it stills leaks, if it does take it out and replace all the gaskets. The other option would be to take the engine apart now and replace all seals and gaskets but I don't really want to open it up.

Here is a link to my photo bucket pictures.

Hey, looks like new. dOd

Very well done. Hope the eng is good now.

good before and after.


(there's some 'sticky' posts - info on posting pix and resize, etc. - pm me if you need any help w that)

Not sure how you did it, the before pix is over 200 kb, and the site has a 100 Kb limit. Resize - resolution, and quality settings on saving, are most of what you need - it's easy when you do a few. 640x480 is commonly used, and then shave the quality settings when saving, to between 70 and 90%. Hope this helps. work w copies.

Finished tonight, engine started right up, but needed a little carb adjustment and had to change the springs in the hydro pump as it came off a non hydro lift tractor. This forum sure made it a lot easier, thanks for your advice and sharing your knowledge. Now on to the 3410.

The photo bucket link show the progress.
